A Berwyn landmark, "The Spindle" was dismantled Friday night. The artwork consists of eight cars stacked onto a silver spike.

The Spindle gained fame in the movie "Wayne's World."

For 19 years, it's been in a strip mall parking lot. The Spindle is being removed to make room for a pharmacy.

Some residents formed a Save-Our-Spindle committee. But mall officials said it would cost $300,000 to restore the rusting skewer of cars.
