Ford Fairlane Hemisfair…. connected to the Ford Sponsorship of the Hemisfair in San Antonio, in 1968

March 20th, 2014 by admin

It seems the huge financial success of the New York Worlds Fair 1964 had some investment types thinking they needed to try to cash in on the idea again, quickly. So in 1968 San Antonio was chosen.

It seems that this World’s Fair didn’t have a whole lot to offer in the ways of retrofuturistic design and cool technologies, but one should consider what was going on while this Fair was open elsewhere in the world to appreciate what it was doing. Vietnam was at its highest, man was about to walk on the moon and the Summer of Love was about to begin, so this was a pretty interesting time.

HemisFair ’68 was the first officially designated world’s fair (or international exposition) held in the southwestern United States. San Antonio, Texas hosted the fair from April 6 through October 6, 1968. More than thirty nations hosted pavilions at the fair. The fair was held in conjunction with the 250th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio. The theme of the fair was “The Confluence of Civilizations in the Americas.”

Cultural events at HemisFair included theme exhibits, such as Confluence/Cosmos, which presented space exploration, and “El Encanto de un Pueblo,” which displayed 5,000 toys and miniatures from the Alexander Girard Folk Art collection in a series of miniature “views” of Latin-American village life.

The fair sponsored a lavish production of Giuseppe Verdi’s Don Carlo, an exhibit of major art works from the Prado Museum in Madrid sponsored by the government of Spain, touring stage shows, performances by celebrity entertainers, and appearances by such groups as the Ballet Folklórico de México and the Bolshoi Ballet from Russia.

Major corporate exhibitors with individual pavilions included Eastman Kodak, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, General Motors, Gulf Oil Corporation, Humble Oil (now Exxon Company, U.S.A.), IBM, RCA, and Southwestern Bell. Frito Lay/Pepsi-Cola (see FRITO-LAY CORPORATION) presented a spectacular outdoor event, “Los Voladores de Papantla” (The Flying Indians), and Coca-Cola’s pavilion featured the Krofft puppets.

Looks like a barn find race car collection in a barn, in Europe, gathering dust… and there is no information about it! (3 Shelby AC Cobras just in these 4 photos!)

They have the world’s largest collection of 1971 Chargers. They have patiently, and quietly put together the nation’s largest collection of Dodge cars. Their collection of musclecars not only includes Dodge cars but also a very impressive lot of Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertibles, Ford Boss 429 Mustangs, LS6 Chevelles, GSX Buicks, AMC Javelins, and a Pontiac Ram Air IV GTO Judge Convertible, one of six known to exist.
