Anybody know where in the process of restoration the Space Wheels are currently in?

They (Drew) just posted at Facebook on April 23rd that they are still working on them, but it's going to be a long process. Their page for the Space Wheels is: http://www.facebook.com/VelareSpaceWheels .

That's exactly what I was hoping for. No, it's even more than I could have imagined.

Thanks Chris for the link!

The pictures on facebook are great, nice of them to keep us posted on progress.

Looks like its going to be a real winner like the Seattle Wheel.

I don't know, Sky Wheels may lose money at certain locations, but I think this one is going to win money where ever it goes up.

I know they said they would rotate it out with S. Wheel, but just once I would like to see both on the same lot, as in the old Royal American days.

Through in a Sky Diver, Rok O Plane, and 16 seat Wheel and boy you would have it for sure then.
