We have 3 floors to drive thru.
A fully assembled Tune-Up Tower.
The first floor.
The second floor.
The top floor.
Today we’ll head into the Tune-Up Tower driving a ’73 Firebird Trans-Am.
Swinging out the merger bar lets you drive your car into the tower.
With the elevator down, the safety bar goes up and lets your car in.
The main feature on the top floor is the dyno-meter treadmill.
Here are the stickers adjacent to the treadmill.
And on the far side of the treadmill.

Up goes the ramp.
Off goes the Firebird.
Running through the lane merger.
On the road again!
Here’s a little bit more detail on driving thru the Tune-Up Tower.
So there you have it. A drive-thru of the 1970 Hot Wheels Tune-Up Tower.
It’s still fast. Still fun.
