In addition to owning the big blue elephant from Fun Pier, Bill Campbell has also aquired an original PTC Jack Rabbit roller coaster car. Bill discovered the abandoned car in the woods off of Route 47 in Rio Grande, NJ. It had been left to rot, overturned in the thicket. How it got there is anyones guess. After realizing what he had found he arranged to have it transported to a safe haven in hopes of a future restoration project. As shown in the photos below the old coaster car has suffered severe damage from the elements.
You can still clearly read the battered Screem Machine sign above.
The body is in deplorable shape yet the wheels spin freely.
