Image #1 is from October 1956 and gives a good overview of the Autopia; as always, so interesting to see how little is going on outside the park. The place looks positively primitive! The next 2 shots are undated, but most likely late 1950’s. Check out little Pugsley in his green car! He’s much happier NOT to be with mom...she can be a real drag, even though she has the cool cat-eye glasses.
Moving onward to June 1960 is the loading area; a little blurry, but still a nice view of the cars themselves and the gas pump.
Shooting ahead to the mod 70’s, the cars look very different, as do the Skyway buckets passing overhead.
