My name is Scott. I have been on a quest to find "left-overs" of the 1984 Worlds Fair and the Gondola here in New Orleans. I am mainly interested in finding and photographing a picture of a Gondola car. I know they were auctioned off ofter the destruction of the system. If anyone know hwere I can find one, please post. Thanks!
Also E-mail me at ilikeyouxoho@yahoo.com with any info.

Hi Scott -

I just noticed this very old thread, so don't know if you are interested, but I happen to own one of the Gondola cars. It did sit underwater for two weeks during Katrina so it is not in the best shape, but I can send you a pic if you'd like.

Charlie - I've begun a bit of an adventure attempting to track down and photograph as many surviving relics of the infamous 1984 World's Fair as I possibly can. Your mention of Katrina has me hoping you're still located in New Orleans. I would love to see a Gondola car in person! Can you provide an email to reach you at? I would love to communicate further. Thanks!
