Hi, Our Dad was a Goodyear dealer in Pittsburgh,PA for many years. Well, back in 1964 our family got a ride on the Mayflower. My Dad and 4 kids went on it. Mom was scared so didn't ride. It was great. I was reluctant at first, they put me in the center backseat which was smart. I was ok after a bit, don't regret doing it! I have a nephew now who would love to ride it, as HIS dad and grandpap did in 1964. BTW, I am now 60 yrs. old.

I was lucky enough to ride the blimp with a bunch of friends for my birthday back in the 70's. I think it was based on Watson Island right by the port of miami. I recall it being very inexpensive and alot of fun! The pilot took us out over the ocean and then back over downtown and over the Orange Bowl. A memory I will never forget.
