Spindle for Sale

Ok, not sure how many of you remember this, from “Wayne’s World,” but the Spindle is now for sale on eBay. The Berywyn landmark is located in Cermak Plaza and features cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s skewered on a metal spike. It was originally created by artist Dustin Shuler in 1989.

I read that Berwyn residents are divided on what to do with the structure, which is covered with rust and pigeon poop. (Gross!) It was supposed to be dismantled last year to make way for a Walgreens or something, but now preservation groups have formed and protested. My favorite one is www.savethespindle.com I think that I might have to get a t-shirt!
