Dan writes: After viewing Joe Muscanere’s beautifully made Ferris wheel, I decided to construct one of my own. Although I followed his basic style, several changes were made to fit the theme I had in mind. This Ferris wheel was built primarily in honor of my father, a WWll veteran who recently passed away, but it was also built for all the brave men and women who presently wear or have worn the uniform. I call it the “American Spirit Ferris Wheel”. It was made from spare parts that were stripped clean, primed and painted in a red, white and blue color scheme. The only reproduction parts are the nuts, screws, axles and flags.
