That's really a great photo. I had no idea they were building them that early. In 1970, I worked for Car Park of America, here in the Denver, CO area. We built those parking Ferris wheels along with other models that did not rotate.

Thanks for the photo.

One of the car resale company, maybe just in the west, has an ad that shows a car vending machine that looks something like that only more modern.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:

How does that work? Is the platform protruding to the right in the picture an elevator?

It's like the rotating rack in a dry cleaners. It revolves. Each car is on it's own "chair"

I recall my Dad having his car parked in something like this in the late '50 in NYC. Remember the car being taking up in a freight elevator.

There is one of those in Kansas City for selling cars. If I understood them right, it's supposed to work like a vending machine. Dave
