Welcome to the website for our Rocket Ship Car®. Rocket Ship Car in Clearwater.This site will be dedicated to the history of the ride from Euclid Beach Park® known as the "Rocket Ships"®. The "Rocket Ships" as they appeared at Euclid Beach Park.We would like to thank all of the support we have had from our families, close friends, past employees, and our customers. Through this site, and it's sister site, www.theeuclidbeachboys.com, we will continually keep everyone updated with some of the new and exciting things we have been up to with our Rocket Ship Car®, over the past few months!

The new venture in Florida Largo parade participants...Largo's city council & Mayor. has taken flight fairly well. Many people down south have relocated here from Cleveland, and there is a lot of "product recognition" with many of the residents in the sunshine state. For us it is all about making people smile...just the way Euclid Beach Park® did for so many generations in Cleveland. For more history on that park be sure to visit the following websites:Lite up at the Lube! www.theeuclidbeachboys.com, www.humphreycompany.com, and www.euclidbeach.com. Thanks for visiting our site, and have an "Amusing day"!

Auto Repair/towing:

Rick Stroud Auto Service

You may wonder why I have this on my site, but it is a fact of life that everything man made needs to be properly maintained, and that is where Rick's auto repair shop comes into play.  Before John and I got fully involved as The Euclid Beach Boys® and building our cars we were in the automotive repair and towing business for over 25 years.  So we know a great repair shop when we see one, and besides we would not let just anyone work on the Rocket Ship Car®....after all your life, and your child's life depends on us, and that is why we depend on Rick to help keep the Rocket Ship Car on the straight & narrow here in Florida.   Thanks Rick!  Click here for the Wheel Alignment Shop to see the Rocket Ship Car getting set straight!

Check out the latest video on You Tube of our Rocket Ship Car® as seen by our fans....... :

This video is of the Rocket Ship Car at the St. Petersburg night parade as part of the St. Petersburg "Parade of the States" kickoff to the Grand Prix Race 2012.  The car took two top awards.  See the following quotes submitted by parade officials.  Fast forward in the video to the 4:07 sec spot to view the car. March 2012.

Joe,
I got this email Monday from the Suncoasters about the awards for our Rocket Ship parade entry. I didn't think for a second that they would award us both awards, just out of being fair, since there were 2 other neighborhood entries in the parade.
I put your contact info in the email I sent out to all my contacts and I think I sent you a copy of what I sent. I'll try to send more pictures soon.
Thanks again,
Dave

Hello,
Hats off to Dave Hoover and the Riviera Bay civic association. Last nights "lighted rocket ship" was truly a sight. A great job by the city in putting on the parade and by the neighborhood for putting themselves on display. Nice glasses, Dave.

Just passing on some good news we received yesterday that the Suncoasters have awarded us the "Best Illuminated"  and "Best Overall"  for our neighborhood association's entry of the "Rocket Ship Car" in the 2012 Festival of States/Grand Prix Illuminated Night parade.

Dave

Thank you so much for your voice mail and congratulations on your double win! We are always excited to see what Riviera Bay Civic Association brings the parade and you surely did not disappoint with the illuminated Rocket Ship Car this year!

I could not believe it.  When I saw the pic of the rocket ship on the front page I immediately told my husband. I know that ride That was at Euclid Beach Park.
I remember riding that. Yes it went around slow but to an eight year old it went awfully fast.  The other ride that really sticks in my mind and I thought
was soooo much fun was the racing horses.  Never forget my grandparents talking about the dances that were there. They lived in Euclid not to far from the lake.
Thanks for the trip back to my childhood.!!!!  Brought back things I have not thought about in a very long time.!

Dear Euclid Beach Boys,


Had a great time at 2012 Euclid Beach event!
Bought a copy of the book, and you signed it at your T-Shirt booth. 
I Love it and want a copy for my Brother for Christmas. 
We have great Family memories of the park. 
My Brother and his little friend walked from Goller Ave in Euclid when they were under 9 yrs. old! 
He also scavenged for tickets people would discard on their way out of the park, and we'd have some free rides!
Our Gramma would take the bus that stopped at the park.  She loved  watching people dance at the old dance hall.
Hope you have a copy left for me!


Thank you for a wonderful day at the park!
Your Fan,
Linda

Hi Joe & John:

Thank YOU for a wonderful hour of fun with our friends and family last
Saturday with the Thriller car.  John was patient as we loaded the elders
and the handicapped in and out - and they were THRILLED to have the chance
to ride!

We are already discussing ideas for our next rental!  We love the cars and
everything related to Euclid Beach - such happy memories for everyone.

Hope to see you at the annual Euclid Beach festival in September.  -Linda

Hi Joe -
 
And thank YOU for the tour last Friday morning. We really enjoyed it. What an incredible collection.
 
Heard you guys on Lanigan & Malone on Monday. Sounded great - hope it gives you a bump in attendance on Sunday. We've seen all the other Euclid Beach books, so we're looking forward to the new one from Arcadia.
 
Thanks for everything you guys do to keep Euclid Beach alive. What the Humphrey family did was really special and the park was so very special to so many people.
 
We'll be there Sunday - keeping fingers crossed for good weather!

Hi Joe & Kathy,

Sorry  did  not get to say Thank You before you left on Friday, I was all over this site pulling things together.  Thank you again, as I have heard such great things and we now have a lot of outside people working here from other countries, who have never experienced Euclid Beach Park, or have never went on a Rocket Ship Car ride… Really great to hear their experience after they come off that car ride.
 
See you again next year.  Have a safe and wonderful holiday season.

I can't say enough about the experience you provided for my daughter and her friends!  They were still talking about it today!  I will definitely be in touch for future outings!  Thanks again to you both!
Sincerely,
Sara and Peter

Good morning D,

 
Thanks for the email.....That is the main reason we do what we do.  It was such a great park to so many people, and our hope is to get the doors open on our collection so that everyone can enjoy a bit of the past. 
 
Joe

 

 
Joe,
 
Thank you!! Everyone is still talking about how young you made them feel riding on the rocket ship from Euclid Beach. It was really a great time.
 
Have a great year,

Hi, Joe --

What a thrill!!  We all had a wonderful time riding in the Rocket Ship Car & are still talking about it -- thank you!!  My computer has not been able to access Internet off & on for days and months, so I never got your email until late yesterday!  Computer is fixed, now.  I surely would have emailed you when I received your email, but wasn't able to -- sorry!  AT & T finally fixed the problem, but it has been a real difficulty for almost 3 months!!  They apologized, but it's been a real difficulty for too long -- they assured me it's really fixed, now.  Sorry to go on so long. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we all have great memories which we'll have for a lifetime -- thanks again, and thank you for your nice note we received in the mail!   Again, I'm so sorry I didn't receive and return your email -- I'm very good and responsible about responding quickly to emails, but couldn't, as you now know.  I know we'll be calling you again sometime for another ride -- until then, thanks again. 

Sincerely, Gay W. G.

Good morning Gay,
 
Modern technology is great until it doesn't work!  Don't worry about the email, I'm glad the rain didn't spoil the ride!  Thanks again, and have a safe and happy holiday season.

Dear John,

October 1, 2011

 
On behalf of Weber’s Premium Custard & Ice Cream, Celestial Treats Lemonade, Buckeye Concessions and ZogDogs, I’d like to thank you, Joe Tomaro, Carol Ward and all ODNR/CLSP personnel, plus the Euclid Beach Park Now Committee once again for inviting us to participate in the above subject event. We enjoyed the day very much and appreciate all of the help and cooperation we received from you and everyone associated with the event.
 
We found the setting, lay-out, exhibits, walking tours, car rides, car show, memorabilia and overall theme/program to be very unique and interesting. Also, all of the activities and displays were very well organized and presented. Overall, the event was very well done and I think everyone enjoyed themselves and our products. We think the event would have been better attended If the weather would have been a little bit warmer and less rain threatening. Also, competing events such as the Browns and Indians games and Saint Jerome’s Clambake probably affected the turnout. All in all, it was a great day and enjoyable event. Congratulations to everyone on a job well done!
 
Hopefully you thought our new Food Vendors were a good addition to the event and you will invite us to return again next year. We would be delighted to return (along with Weber’s of course) and help you make next year’s event an even greater success. We’ll need to discuss what foods worked best this year and how we can adjust our menus and logistics/personnel to help improve upon any realized customer service issues. First time involvement in any event always produces areas that can be improved upon and tweaked to make them better. We are willing to make these adjustments so the event can run more smoothly next year.
 
I hope you have a safe and enjoyable fall season!
 
We’ll see you again next year….on the circuit and at the 2012 Euclid Beach Park extravaganza.
 
Best regards,
 
John
The Polonye Group
(For Weber’s Premium Custard & Ice Cream, where” FRESH IS BEST”, Celestial Treats Lemonade, where “YOU CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE”, Buckeye Concessions and ZogDogs-“SIMPLY THE BEST”)

Hi John,

It  was our pleasure to have you at this years event.  The products you represent, and your professionalism are an added plus, and we are looking forward to next year and are pleased to have you on board.

Joe,

Thank you so much.  It was very nice to meet you too, and I thank you for making such a great memory for my family.  I told everyone at work about the adventure J  It’s so cool what the Rocket Ship has become, and what it represents to so many people.  The kids can’t stop talking about it.  They are going to want to go on rocket ships all the time!!!??? 

p.s. My dad found his camera.

Thank you,

Anna

 

Good morning Rich,

 
Thanks for the email.  It was a pleasure to meet you, your family and friends.  Thanks for thinking of our Rocket Ship Car, and have a great summer!

We will keep you in mind for future parties. :)

Hi Amy,

 
I got the complete rundown from my wife about your husbands great aunt with her arms up in the air while riding in our "Thriller Car", just like she did when she rode the coasters years ago!  It was our pleasure to fit you in.  I wish I could have had the pleasure of meeting her, but I had one last event to do on Saturday evening with the Rocket Ship Car, so my wife filled in for me.  Thanks for contacting me, and as I like to say..."Have an amusing day"!

I can't tell you how much your braving the elements meant to your rocket ship car riders at the Vermilion prom. I only wish the weather had cooperated so you could have seen what an amazing event that can be.

The rocket ship car was a fabulous way to arrive in style. Thank you for helping us to give our daughter and her friends this wonderful gift.

Rain or shine, the Rocket Ship Car rocks!Thr Rocket Ship Car "ROCKS" @ the 2001 Vermilion Prom.

I booked the Rocket Ship car back in January and my 80+ year old friends are
still talking about it.  I would like to have about 10 postcards so I could
leave in our beach rental next to Angelo's pizzeria.  Could you mail me a
few.--  I think it is a fun thing for tourists to do.

Hi Joe,

 
I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday. I know we did.
 
The Rocket ship Car was such a huge success. The staff and the doctors loved it. Plus the neighborhood seemed to like watching the car more than the lights. It was fun being a rock star for an hour. Thank you for all of your help in making the Christmas party a success. We will definitely keep you in mind in the future. I will also let people know about your business.
 
Also thank you for the totally cool key ring. I love it!
 
 
Thank you,

Hi Joe,

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the rocket ship car last Friday night.  My friend Cherie was and still is in total shock.   We all had a blast!!!

You run a 1st class organization and oh my do you have the patience to put up with 10 partying women!!!  LOL!

Thanks again,

Joy

 

 

Gary Thomas was kind enough to send us this picture of our Rocket Ship Car® while I was passing through Squire's Castle in the North Chagrin Metro Parks.  View other great photo's from Gary and his comment about Euclid Beach Park® on this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26992926@N08/

Sorry I did not make it down to see you last night.  I only had one volunteer show up and I had to be at the patio party to run the drawing for prizes.
 
I heard you were as popular as ever and even had a few people leave the patio party to catch a ride before you left.
 
It's just not a festival without the Rocket Ship Car!  I could not do our summer events without you providing this kind of fun.
 
Enjoy the rest of the summer and safe travels to Florida.

Hey Joe,

I just wanted to thank you for squeezing me in today. I know that you guys were super busy. To say that everyone had a good time was an understatement. From 2-75 everyone went crazy about getting to ride in "the car from the parades" as the kids called it. John was also friendly and professional he made the experience that much better. I hope we  can do this again next year. You made Anthony's party a hit.

Thanks a million, Robert

 Hi Joe!!! 

We really cannot thank you enough for going the extra mile and being so patient when everyone was running around changing clothes, holding you up- changing the drop off point etc… you were flexible and friendly and we appreciated your friendly service.  We will highly recommend your services over and over again!   I still have 3 more kiddos that still are not married! Your thank you note was also extra special and it touched our hearts.

All the best and thanks again! 

Pat 

P.S. Have an “ Amusing day too J!!!!

 

 

Good morning, this message is intended for Joe....Renee booked the Rocket Ship Car on July 08,2010 for my event

Joe  thank you soooooo much!!  The Rocket Ship Car made my bachelorette party a blast. We had such a great time and you were wonderful.  From the ride to the music and lights it was just such an unforgettable event for all. thanks again:)

Hi Joe,

Thank you for the terrific ride and keeping the spirit of Euclid Beach alive!  Everyone loved it!  I will look forward to my next ride!  Maybe even in Florida as my mother's house is in Holiday a bit north of Clearwater near Tarpon Springs!  

Thank you again! :-)

Cherrie, 6/7/2010

 

This letter was sent to me recently: Feb. 27, 2010, and by the way Tom, we do have some major surprises for the coming years.  Watch our website for future news!

 

Dear Euclid Beach Boys,

I had a few minutes to kill while waiting for a file to load at work, and ended up spending over a hour going down memory lane with your web site.  What a thrill it was to remember some of my earliest memories as a child going to Euclid Beach Park, spending the day at the beach, riding all the great rides and at the end of the day, stopping at the Humphrey booth for some popcorn balls and candy kisses.  

I remember going to other places like Geauga Lake Park, Kiddieland, the Cleveland Zoo, the Clifton Club, all places of my childhood that no longer exist except in the shared memories with my siblings and old photographs.

Thanks for the smile on my face.

HN 12/18/2009

P.S. I had forgotten about laughing Sal, but one look at her and the sounds that came out of that woman came flooding right back :)
 

Joe,

You just totally make my party every year!!! OMG! I have everyone calling me the next day and telling me how awesome that Rocket Ship car is!!! I had someone who was interested in having it themselves so hopefully you will get some calls…….hopefully you had your cards with you and you gave some out.  I cant thank you enough ………so go ahead and put me down for next year for the 1st sat. in Aug. and I think that falls on Sat. Aug. 7…….thank  you, thank you , thank you!!!!

Kathy 8/3/2009

 

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your website.  I have a ton of great memories of going to Euclid Beach when I was a child!  I have known for a long time that Laughing Sal was still around, but have always wondered whatever happened to her "old man".  Are there any still existing?  And what was HIS name?  I've wracked my brain trying to remember, but I cannot.....can you help? 

 
Oh (and I'm sure you hear this frequently)....Laughing Sal STILL creeps me out!  LOL
 
Thanks again for preserving Euclid Beach!
 
Sincerely,
 
Debi

 

Good morning Debi,
 
Thanks for the great review of my website!  "Sal's" mate was known as Laughing Sam.  He was removed from the park in the late 50's to a private owner, who sold him to a traveling carnival.  I heard Sam was destroyed by a heavy rain storm while being transported back to the carnival site.  The rain and hail took out the paper mache' that he was made of.
 
Be sure and try to attend the stat park event in September.  You will really enjoy it!
 
Have a great day!
 
Joe 
Good morning Joe! 

Thank you so much for your reply to my email.  Now I can finally quiet my brain re Sal's mate's name.....Sam!  That was driving me crazy, trying to remember.  Sorry to hear about his demise!  What a shame.  I hadn't remembered that he left Euclid Beach.  I was around 10 years old in the late 50's, and only remember BOTH of them outside the "fun house" at the Beach (I think it was called The Surprise House, wasn't it?)  All I remember from those great days was being really afraid of Laughing Sal, and not so scared of Sam.  But not scared enough to stay away from the attraction---that one and "Laugh in the Dark" were my favorites. 

 
Thanks for the memories, and I will try to be there in September! 
 
Cheers!
 
Debi 8/3/2009

Joe & John:

Thanks again for an incredibly memorable evening.  Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed both the presentation and the rides.

I really appreciate your help in making last night a party to remember!

I EVEN WORKED IN "KIDDIE LAND" FOR THREE YEARS, WORKED ON ALL THE RIDES AND MOSTLY THE FIRE ENGINE.
 KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Good morning Ray,

 
Thanks for the great review of my website!  FYI we have 1 of the kiddie rocket ships, 8 kiddie rodeo ponies, and some of the large building block letters that were used throughout the colonnade. 
 
I hope you can make the State Park event in September.....you will really enjoy it!

Dear Joe, 

Thank you so much for bringing the Rocket Ship out to our resident Luau.  Some of the residents had tears in their eyes when they saw it but were not mobile enough to ride in it.  Even though it rained, no one let it dampen the party. Hope we can use your services again. 

Sincerely, 

Arlene 7/22/2009

Hi Arlene, 

What you just told me is the main reason we do it!  Just the sincere appreciation that we receive from numerous people makes us work that much harder towards our ultimate goal of getting our collection, and the cars out there for everyone to enjoy.   

Thanks for the encouraging email.

Hi, I came upon your site while trying to locate a poster of the park.  I was a resident of Collinwood and my dad used to take my brother and I to the park often, his company had their picnics there,  The only memorabilia I have is a photo of my brother and myself in front of the entrance when we were probably 5 and 6 and a charm that a boy in high school gave me and I cherish both along with all those wonderful memories.  Of course I loved the Thriller but I think my favorite were the rocket ships.  Congratulations on all of your treasures, I am seriously envious!

Diana 7/16/09

 

Thanks again for the good time, Joe. Everyone really enjoyed the rides.

Bob
 

Dear Joe,

 
I want to sincerely thank you for providing the "Rocket Ship Car" ® for my wife's birthday celebration.  She has been talking about getting a ride in the car for the past year and needless to say she was totally surprised when you arrived and thoroughly enjoyed the ride especially the music.  She was still talking about it this morning.  She brought the post card you gave her to show her colleagues at Beaumont.  I kept kidding her that it was the first time she has acknowledged that she was turning 60.  We also had many positive comments from the other guests who said they had a ball taking the ride.  Many thought that the car would just be there to look at and had no idea that they could actually go for a ride.
 
Again many thanks especially for taking the time on a holiday. 
 
In closing, as you say "Have An Amusing Day"
 
Bob                                                                                                           5/25/2009

 

Hey Joe, 
 
Once again Thank You!  Everyone thought the rocket ship car was Awesome!!! 
 
Good Luck,
M & L

 

JUST A QUICK NOTE:  Friends are still talking about the joy you, your wife and "the rocket ship car" brought into their lives,  the preschoolers attending All Saint's Episcopal and numerous others who have seen the postcard I carry in my purse to describe Ed's  87th birthday celebration. Thanks for all of your help, thankfully the space ship departed and returned safely and God provided gorgeous weather two weeks ago.
 
I continue to distribute the extra postcards including a Clearwater friend, formerly of Mentor, whose favorite Euclid Beach ride was your "rocket ship".  My physician partner, who unfortunately, didn't get to the festivities is thoroughly enjoying the extra Humphrey popcorn balls and taffy kisses. I took a second bag full to him this week despite his wife's protest about "too much sugar intake".
 
Lastly, one of the preschoolers was having a tantrum upon arriving at preschool March 27th and his mother pleaded that he stay for the special surprise... He is still raving about his rocket ship ride experience and I gave his Mother a rocket postcard for the boy's collection.  The young girl from his class having a birthday that same day, still believes you personally came for her birthday surprise.
 
Hopefully, the woman who followed your rocket ship car into the parking lot to request your presence for a party last week was able to connect and make arrangements...
 
YOU GAVE US ALL AN AFTERNOON TO REMEMBER.... SEE YOU IN OHIO.  SAFE TRAVEL.
 

Hi Joe! 

I just wanted to thank you again for the Rocket Ship last night for my mother's 60th birthday. She had an absolute blast, as we all did!  What a great night for it and it's a memory we won't easily forget.  Thank you again and we'll make sure to refer your services on to our friends and family.

AP.

Joe,

     Thank you so much for being with us in the parade! Your Rocket Ship was a hit!  We had a blast!!!!!  As soon as I find out the dates for next year I will contact you!  If you could mail me some of your cards I will put them on our counter for our patients.  I have been asked for them.
Thank you!
Amber
 

 

I went to the event on Sun. the 28th, it was great!! I shut my eyes and heard all the noises of the park back then, the happiest times of my life! Euclid Beach will forever be magical!! THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Diane

Geauga Lake enthusiasts taking a look back....

 

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

By Sandra M. Klepach
SKlepach@News-Herald.com

Some people get tears in their eyes when they see things they remember from Geauga Lake Amusement Park.

For that reason, Euclid Beach Boys Joe Tomaro and John Frato jump at the chance to show their collections in public.

"It's a step back in time," Tomaro said, also referring to the duo's memorabilia from Euclid Beach Park, which closed 40 years ago. "People close their eyes and they hear the music and they can just hear the ride."

Anyone who's not yet experienced such a flashback, but loved Geauga Lake — which operated from 1888 to 2007 in Aurora and Bainbridge Township — is now invited to the first ever Geauga Lake Memorabilia Show and Employee Reunion.

The event, which is not affiliated with Cedar Fair Entertainment Co. or Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom, will be from 7 to 10:30 p.m. March 6 at Roller Hutt Skate & Fun Center, 10268 Hewins Road, Route 88, Garrettsville.

The event will feature a slew of collectors of Geauga Lake memorabilia, and organizer Jason Dlugokecki hopes to create the ambiance of the amusement park where he worked from the summers of 1994 to 1998; tunes and tasty scents that once drifted over the park will fill this festival, too, care of a DJ and a carnival food concession stand.

Fellow employees of Geauga Lake, Six Flags Ohio and Sea World Ohio also might take this opportunity to reconnect, he said.

"I met my wife there, pretty much all of my friends are from there, and you troll the Internet boards and there are Web sites all over still dedicated to the park," he said.

"I consider it my generation's version of Euclid Beach; we thought it would be there forever and all of a sudden it's gone."

One Aurora exhibitor will be looking to sell items he bought during the June 2008 auction of its outbuildings, rides and equipment. Another man will sell paper weights made from wood salvaged from the Big Dipper's disassembly.

But most of the memorabilia that day will be for amusement purposes only, Dlugokecki said. Euclid Beach Boys will bring a log flume boat from the former Log Ride in which visitors will be able to sit and take photographs, and possibly a Musik Express car.

Others will show items from the Turtle Beach children's area, home videos, employee training videos, and footage of the park's auction and tear down on a few large projection screens.

Dlugokecki said his own display will include the head of park mascot Geauga Dog, uniforms from his employment, signs, posters and banners, and pictures of rides being constructed during the off season.

Admission is $5 to cover the facility's operating costs for a nonskating event, but exhibitors and event volunteers get in free.

"People just have fond memories of parks," Tomaro said, "and it's a whole 'nother generation coming up for Geauga Lake."

 

******Idea Section******

For those of you who are new to our site, and think the car(s) are cool, but do not know what they can be used for here are some ideas:  Birthdays (adults, & children) weddings, anniversary parties, block parties, grand openings Weber's family fun night., parades , church & city festivals,  reunions, company & corporate events, beach parties, holiday light tours (Florida only), airport pickup and drop off, air show's (the Rocket Ship Car® works well for that) Cleveland National Air Show 2007, city and points of interest tours, or view our Ride & Dine® page for even more ideas! 

If you have an idea for something not listed above drop us a note, or better yet call us and we can talk about it! Our contact information is listed below, or in the lower left column on every page. 

Thanks for viewing our site, and please visit our www.euclidbeachpark.com website for a lot of very neat information about Euclid Beach Park!®

Oh by the way...."Have an amusing day!" "The Euclid beach Boys"

 

FYI

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is "Does your Rocket Car have a rocket engine in it"?  First of all our car is named after the ride that operated at Euclid Beach Park® from the mid 1930's until it closed in 1969.   This is what the "Rocket Ships" ride looked like after the park closed in 1969.  This picture was taken in April, 1970. The ride was called the "Rocket Ships".  Our car is powered by a bored and stroked big block Chevrolet gas engine.  The cubic inch is 502, and is producing around 500 horsepower.  Because of the weight of the car a large cubic inch engine is needed to create enough torque to adequately move the Rocket Ship Car® down the highway.  The car runs on regular pump gas, usually 87 octane, (not rocket fuel) without a problem.  So technically our car is really not a rocket car, but it is a car that looks like a Rocket Ship!

 

***NEW*** acquisitions have been made!

Stay tuned here for further details! You will never be able to guess what they are!

First Hint: Our finds have something to do with "Music & a non-produced ride car design! (sort of)

Second Hint: This ride vehicle could be seen and heard throughout the park. (if the wind blew just right) 

Third Hint: When our restorers are finished with this piece this piece will be music to your ears!

Fourth Hint: Although this new motorized ride car will look slightly different it will still hold up to 10 rider's!
