Rick’s Restorations Tilt-a-Whirl Press Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The History Channel series, American Restoration hosts Rick and Kelly Dale, will be in Minnesota on Thursday, June 18, to celebrate the placement of a Tilt-A-Whirl car, which was restored this past August on the popular cable show. The car will be placed in the historic downtown as part of Faribault’s Heritage Days, which runs through the weekend. Rick and Kelly will be available for local media interviews beginning at 6:00 am and throughout the morning until approximately 12 noon, at which time they need to proceed to Faribault for the placement ceremony at 3:00 pm.
Background: Herbert Sellner invented the Tilt-A-Whirl in 1926, at his Faribault, Minnesota, home. Family legend states that Herbert experimented with a chair placed on the kitchen table. Herbert’s son, Art, sat in the chair while Herbert rocked the table back and forth. Over the next year, the first 14 Tilt-A-Whirls were built in Herbert’s basement and yard. In 1927, Sellner Manufacturing opened its factory in Faribault and the ride debuted that year at the Minnesota State Fair. Tilt-A-Whirl and other rides continued to be manufactured at the iconic Faribault facility until the company was sold in 2011.
