For sale: ‘Wayne’s World’ cars, free roof and floor holes included – Chicago Tribune

For sale: two classic cars. Some rust. No engines or seats. 26-inch holes in the roofs and floors. Formerly impaled on a giant spike. No tire kickers.

That — pretty much — is the pitch for two vehicles that once formed the uppermost part of “The Spindle,” the iconic 50-foot Berwyn sculpture of stacked cars on a stick, made famous by the 1992 Mike Myers comedy “Wayne’s World.”

The Berwyn Arts Council took possession of the 1967 Volkswagen Beetle and 1976 BMW 2002 when the sculpture was taken down by the owners of the Cermak Plaza shopping center in 2008. It had hoped to restore the sculpture but says it can no longer afford to store the cars. So it put them on eBay.

“We’re hoping someone can restore them, ideally as they were when Dustin Shuler made the sculpture in 1989, or as a second option, get them back on the road,” said John Fey, 70, a board member of the arts group.
