I did a search on Ford's Magic Skyway at the Worlds
Fair and found some neat info:

The push buttons on the car radio's were each set
to a different language.

Ford replaced the interior in the cars every month.

On one site people wrote in with their own experiences,
boys that were 7 to 10 years old that wanted to
drive, one said that the steering wheel came off
in his hand and that he was afraid that he would
get in trouble! Another had his mom yelling at
him for changing the radio station (languages),
yet another said the ride had stopped under the
dinasaur and the radio was repeating the same
recording. There are some photos to look at also.

I remember going myself, I was 7 years old and
remember seeing the Mustang on display and riding
in a car.

Can you imagine the stock room of parts that they
would have to keep on hand, the cars probably took
a beating from the hundreds of people that got in
and out of them all day!
