King Bong* — King Kong on the News

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

From MACE: “Tony Maycock interview with Mike Shanley, Birmingham garage owner, who has bought the statue of King Kong to stand it in his car sales forecourt.” a clip of ATV Today 18/09/1972

Remarkably hash tone for such a fluffy news item ‘doesn’t King Kong Kars sound a bit crap’? I’m paraphrasing.

*okay it’s ATV Today, and not News At Ten. This is Trevor McDoughnut…

  • I am wondering where King Kong is now? Anyone know?

  • Richard Shanley

    King Kong is the centrepiece of the largest Tarmacadam market site in Europe based in Glasgow called Spook Erections owned by a gentleman by the name of Brian Maybee . My father sold King Kong to them in the mid to late 70’s and they still own it
