    Grand Central is still there and now owned by Disney Studios. They have it shuttered at the moment. Here's a recent pic I took of it.

    Indian supplied either left or right shift at request. Standard was left throttle. They did backwards right throttle for law enforcement in order to meet bid specs.

    This one is located near my old neighborhood down in South Jersey. On the Marlton circle at the intersection of routes 70 and 73. The place is still standing but has been out of business for a few years.
     
  22. The Barrel Drive In, Clear Lake, Iowa been in business since the late 50's. Back then they had a disc jockey in the building on the roof playing real rock n roll and with a skating rink around the corner and more girls than at a concert at the Surf Ballroom where Buddy Holly had his last concert just a few blocks away.:)

  24. I was thinking truck driver. Not clear enough to be sure for me. Notice the nice blouse/shirt. Not biker attire methinks.
