Roll on a Pole

You may recall that we've seen roller skate cars twice before.  And today makes three.  But this one isn't rolling anywhere.

Several auto shops have the old "car on a pole" outside to attract attention.  The Rollercade in Longview, TX has this beauty outside.  You may think it's just a decoration but a closer inspection indicates that it is an actual car (thereby qualifying it as a product mobile):

The Texas plates make me assume this beauty was once road worthy.  The sad part of this story is that Rollercade seems to no longer be in business:

But, of course, we hold out hope that Rollercade will once again open their doors and the Rollercade Car will hit the roads again.

  1. This was on the road once upon a time and driven around by the owner. He would drive it in the parade and the employees and 'rink rats' would skate with him and hand out candy and coupons. :)
