    Go to your local flee market. If you see a big white wall on stilts, that probably was a drive in.

    I can't believe it! I know of a town that still has a drive-in movie theater still operating. Not only that, you can go to the A & W root beer stand and get curb service in your car. For those youngens, that is you sit in your car, a waitress comes and gets your food order. Then when it is ready, she/he will deliver it to you. They still have the old fashion root beer floats. This place is located in Michigan.

    And NO, we are not some hillbillies that have not advanced with the times:D

    The A&W has us beat - But there is a Drive-in near us in MD that still shows movies every Saturday from March to October.

    They sponsor a whole bunch of car shows too... Big M is it's name. Yeah, they have flea markets too. :) :) :)

    My old "home town" in Colorado (Monte Vista) still has a working drive in, an A&W with "car hops," and a Sonic with "car hops." And if that isn't heaven enough, it is home to the San Luis Central shortline RR. Sniff, sniff, what a great place...
    'Course, it seemed to really pick up after I left in '63--it was like some heavy burden was lifted from the place...:D ;)

    Leon's Frozen Custard in Oshkosh, WI (yum, yum!) still has car hops, and I found a drive-in movie that was still operating in Lexington, VA a few weeks ago. Seems to me that I read about a "new" drive-in movie somewhere, not too long ago. These things are still out there; you just have to really look for them.
