The Santa Monica, 'Pacific Wheel'

This is probably the best item that is ever going to be in our 'Things to buy' category - it's the 'Pacific Wheel', the famous Santa Monica Ferris Wheel, which is now on ebay.

The wheel debuted in May 1966 at the opening of Pacific Park and in 1998 became the world's first solar-powered ferris wheel. It's a great item for those with a giant garden and a lot of spare cash (Bidding is currently at $50,000), but it says in the details that the wheel base is not included in the sale!! What is a buyer going to do with a 90ft high ferris wheel with no base?
