Happy dads,


...let their Daughters take their boyfriends to the drive-in in a nice CP. 

Picture from tonight, they say it's a gorgeous night. Hope they beat the rain, if not...oh well it's only water!

I dont see any other convertibles there, they must have been noticed? How many fit in the trunk?

Talk about memories....wow.

Jaws, American Graffiti, And Now For Something Completely Different are just a few that come to mind at the drive-in.

There used to be a few Drive-Ins around Greater Hamilton when I was a kid. Limeridge Rd. near Upper James, Waterdown, one near Highway 20 & Mud St. There was also one at the Oakville / Mississauga border at #5 & the 403 that was there well before the 403.

Surprisingly there are still a few around. Given land values and imminent domain it is surprising they exist at all.

They were at the 5 drive in Oakville, at Dundas and the 403. I suspect it won't be around too much longer as the area is under extreme development pressure.

Yes, it is an archaic anachronism to see a drive-in today, at least around these parts.

It is almost as relevant as a TV Repair Shop. Remember those?

Quasar? What is this, the Twilight Zone back to the 1970s?
