    I remember mom, changing me on the tailgate of the 59 chevy wagon at the Cascade drive in. That was 1961 in West Chicago, Il. This place is still open and is currently playing "closed for the season". Been going there every warm summer night since. My grown kids love the place and now bring their kids. Sure, I've got some stories to tell, but the best one is the fact that the snack bar has not changed one bit. Still has the baby bottle warmers in the corner and the hot dogs appear the be vintage 1961 but now they cost five bucks. Pizza puff anyone?

    I had a 57 Rambler station wagon . All my buddies wanted to borrow it to go to the drive in.
    With the front seat down and the back seat down it was bed from the steering wheel to the tailgate.
    They all called it the mobile motel room.

    The original 2 bedroom Rambler.

  12. A couple in Omaha got Permits and zoning rights to build a brand new one with a "Nostalgic" look and 3 screens. Right now our little town has one of the two that are still in use. Once the last one in Council Bluffs IA closed, ours was the closest to Omaha. While I'm excited to see people willing to invest in the new one, I hope it doesn't kill ours off.

    My dream job at the drive in would have been the security guy with the flashlight checking the steamed up windows to see if there was any trouble
