I live near the Americas Car Museum. In the summer they throw up a screen and have a double feature.

I saw about 5 seconds of a drive-in movie flying into Santa Barbara last Friday night. Or maybe it was a fly-in. wink

When I was a teen our drive in had a slot car track for racers to compete during intermission. The track was designed for O&R 19 powered race cars and I had a Fox Red Head powered sprint car that didn't didn't buzz like a mosquito but barked like a Mastiff. I set the guides down into the slots and turned her loose. When it reached the first turn it tore the plywood and launched off the end of the track. I was invited to never return so I haven't.

Are you saying you have never been to a drive in theater before?
If you have not, you will not believe the stories I can tell you!

Defiantly the stories would have to be told in a private setting Martin.
I bet you have some too!
