Chicago Landmark to Fall

Made famous by the 1992 comedy, Wayne’s World, the rather bizarre Spindle pictured to the right is to be cleared away to make room for a Walgreens. Oh joy!

The Spindle was built in 1989 by Californian artist Dustin Shuler and was introduced to the world a few years later when Mike Myers and Dana Carvey featured it in their campy romp. Unfortunately art has once again succumbed to commerce and the Car Kabob will soon be added to the growing list of expired roadside attractions.

So, if you want to mark it off your list of wacky objects on the side of the road, better motor on over to the town of Berwyn in the western suburbs of Chicago and get your eyeful before they drag it away.
