  3. Kool! I have a few heavy A&W mugs and a tray from the 60's. Just wondering who remembers the heavy metal drive in movie speakers and the electric heaters that NEVER worked.

    Cheers

    here, here... I sure do.. in fact, when I was about 9 years old I went to the drive-in with my cousins... when the movie was over she forgot to remove that speaker from her widow and started to drive off. It broke her window, and ripped the speaker from the neighboring car. I remember trying to find the lowest spot in the back seat to hide so that none of my friends would see me.
     
  6. SONIC around here still does it that way
    maybe i'll go there tomorrow and take a few pictures

    not like the old days, of course

    Some of the employees in Virginia do.. yes..

    I guess it depends on how steady they are on skates.
