It is a sad day in Silly America. On Friday night, with no warning, the Berwyn Spindle, the car kabob, cars on a spike, was torn down.

All that is left right now of this roadside attraction is a stump and soon that will be cleared away too to make room for a Walgreens.

From what I’ve seen and heard the top two cars may have been saved before the rest was ruthlessly chopped down. We’ll see if anything ever comes of those.

For now, Silly Americans, we’ll bid adieu to our tower of cars. It will be sadly missed.
