I remember "back in the day" when we hung out at the Patrick Street Shoney's in Charleston, WV (the very FIRST one in the Shoney's chain and operated by Alex Schoenbaum). We would sit around and BS awhile and then "cruise" the loop and stop at the other drive-in's in the area before coming back to Shoney's to see if any street racing might happen. I don't remember ever seeing someone sitting in a lawn chair behind their car with the hood up and a crying baby doll leaning against the tire and a model car on top of their air cleaner. The concept for today's "cruise-in" is supposed to replicate what we did years ago ….. nothing could be farther from truth! They did have a DJ on weekends at Shoney's but it was a live broadcast on the local AM radio station. The only trophies on display were on Sunday night after a day at the local drag strip and you had to keep the white shoe polish on the window designating class of your car. The good old days...… boy, how do I miss them!
