Wayne's World Car Replica

I live in Aurora, Illinois; pretty much the most boring city on earth. The one thing that it's known for that it was the setting for the movie Wayne's World. A few years back [2017] they did a bunch of events commemorating the 25th anniversary of the film. One of the things they did was to put a replica AMC Pacer inside the Hollywood Casino for everyone to see. I went down there to play the slots the other day, and it's still there! The one and only tribute to the movie that made our city notable. It's really sad when a place doesn't capitalize on the one thing it's got going for it.
