This is a landmark. It was in the Wayne's World movie. There is the Cadillac Ranch in Texas, Carhenge in Nebraska, and Car Spindle in Berwyn, Illinois. Now there won't be the Illinois Car landmark. Can anyone identify what cars are on the Spindle? And what year? Ok, so I got some email to my question of what type of cars, A VW on top, next down an older Volvo or BMW, next down a Ford Escort mid 80's, Next down a 1974 Datson,next down white one is probably a 1978 Ford Mustang, next A Pontiac Grand Prix early to mid 80's, Next down a Ford Fairmont late 70's, last another Ford Fairmont late 70's.
Remember the date this was created was 1989.

Make way for another Walgreens, they are popping up all over like cockroaches

Car Spindle coming down

Taking down the Spindle will outdate several travel guides

    I refuse to shop at Walgreen's. They tore down two other historic and beautiful places that I liked, Harley's Restaurant in Brownsburg, Indiana and the Old Post Office in DeKalb, Illinois.

    That car pileup an a description of the chaos and corruption in Illnois. Art imitates life.

    It's been there for so long that......for yet another Walgreens? If you notice in some of the pictures there is a Walgreens in the strip mall, but now they can own the land and building, and get rid of whatever is in their way.

    We have Walgreens in my area. Walgreens is competing against Sav-ons. Do you have more Walgreen stores in Illnois?

    We only have Walgreen's in Illinois where former landmarks used to be or near CVS, which is their regional competitor.

    I wrote the mayor of Berwyn and told him that I do not shop at Walgreen's and there are many other people who do not shop there either. Of course, I did not get a response back.

    I heard a lot of negativeness about Walgreens espcailly Walgreens not hiring minorities. That is news here. I don't shop at Walgreens nor CVS or Save-ons. The only time I was in CVS was when I had to pick up prescription pills from major dental work. Otherwise, the prices in the drugstore for over the counter stuff is too high. You only go there if necessary. I feel that the pharmacutial companies are taking advantage of the public's pocketbook in my opinion. So, I stay away from the over the counter stuff if needed.

    Walgreens is an Illinois based company, headquarters up north, I believe Deerfield. If you have to pay cash for Rx's they are the highest priced, that's when you need a Costco or Sam's membership.
    Walgreens has a lot of HMO, PPO etc. contracts that's what keeps them going, their whole thing is to get people in for Rx and then they will pick up other items, grocery etc. while waiting for Rx.
    They have been moving, rather buying propery on parking lots of strip malls that they are in, so now they own property and a building.

    Walgreen's just got a verdict on the class action by minorities. They pay $20 million to about 8,000 workers. No doubt those weasels will appeal and try not to pay up.

    "No doubt those weasels will appeal and try not to pay up."

    And that is why another Walgreens is being built.

    Walgreen is becoming Texaco gas company. Texaco company was accused of not hiring minority business owners for contracts and not hiring minorites in the company. Texaco changed the rules and went on an ad campaign on a minority lovefest. I look for Walgreen to have front page ad for appeal to minorities.
