RealRides of WNY - Herschell Carrousel Car

This past summer we took some friends from Rochester to the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum (right) in North Tonawanda (just over the Erie Canal Bridge from the RealRides World Headquarters) for a tour. Came across this Carrousel Car in one of the displays, and yesterday while browsing eBay found someone selling an entire carrousel ride, in working order with 10 cars including two fire ladder cars, two taxis, and two police cars — for just 30 grand! (see bottom photo) The listing, in Deland, Florida, says it dates from 1937. Wow! These were built just minutes away from us. I must check my mad money jar…
