Six Flags bought two Intamin bobsleds with the intention of rotating them. Magic Mountain's ride was removed after the 1986 season but for whatever reason GA's removal was pushed back to 1987 (even though it stayed on until 1988). It is possible we almost had a suspended coaster (although not the best one) at GA.

The former starting point of the bob and luge track during Olympic competitions.
Now after the Bosnian war in the early 90's:
With its prime position overlooking the city, Trebevic was an important area for Serbian fighters in the war.
After years of use, the mountain site was overrun during the war and left in ruin.
The high, concrete, sloping walls made the track the ideal spot for military trenches.

Two observations about the image on the postcard -
(1) The bobsled features single file seating, like when it was at Great Adventure. The bobsleds were retrofitted to side by side seating when they were moved to Six Flags Great America, and feature side by side seating today at the Great Escape.
(2) The image on the card was printed backwards. Note the number '1' on the sled above. Here is the photo properly displayed:
