There’s nothing like a World’s Fair for excess, is there? Here is John Rock with his wife and 14 children at the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair:
No, when I say “excess”, I’m not talking about the 14 kids! Those buggies are Corvettes, and that’s what you got to rent if you were imprudent enough to turn up at the fair with, say four or five kids who needed rides.
Hertz apparently had the stroller concession at this World’s Fair, and they made the most of it. So did GM, it seems. I wonder if auctioning off a quad set of these wheels today would put a significant dent in GM’s deficit?

(Yeah, John Rock’s wife is unnamed in the photo captions. She only produced the kids, and that doesn’t really count. At least not in 1964.)
