FORT LEE - Cars once thought to be lost from the Cyclone roller coaster at Fort Lee's now-demolished Palisades Amusement Park are back in town.

The roller coaster was demolished in 1971, but the cars were preserved.

Fort Lee historical expert Tom Meyers says it's quite a find. "To find this in an abandoned amusement park or a closed amusement park in the wilds of Pennsylvania and to bring this piece of history back and make it new again is amazing and nothing short of miraculous," he says.

Cliffside Park and Fort Lee historical officials plan to restore the cars this winter. Once done, they will be put into a local museum
