An intresting piece of art in Berwyn, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago
). Completed in 1989, it featured 8 cars on a giant metal stake with a purple Volkswagon Beetle
on the top. The sculpture gained national attention when it was featured in the 1992 film Wayne's World
In 2007 the stripmall/plaza where the Spindle was located decided to tear it down to build a new Walgreen's
pharmacy (replacing the already existing one due to the fact it lacked a drive-thru), even though there were other multiple locations to put it (they could've just simply made one out of the store's abandoned liqour section). Protests kept the demolition of it at bay for months until May 2, 2008 when the sculpture came down. The Walgreen's was completed in 2009, upsetting many residents because the Walgreen's final location did not enroach where the Spindle once stood.
I was able to get a picture of the spindle before it was destroyed because this nation is just too obese and can't walk a few yards to pick up there medicine.
