Flash Back to the Days of the Drive-In

Knoepfler Chevrolet had their 1st Annual Drive-In Movie on Saturday, September 26th. The show was free with the donation of a canned food item to the Food Bank of Siouxland. A variety of vehicles came rolling into the lot - classic cars, family-filled SUVs and trucks with young couples. The weather was perfect at sunset - warm enough to sit outside, but a chill in the air sufficed with comfy sweatshirts and blankets.
People of all ages came to watch the 1973 iconic movie, "American Graffiti," which features a wide variety of classic cars not unlike many of the vehicles in attendance. For the younger generation, this was their first drive-in movie experience. For many others, this event stirred up a nostalgia for the good 'ole days. Boy Scouts in uniform sold glass bottles of Coke, popcorn and candy, couples arrived in poodle skirts and fedoras, and 50s music filled the air as the screen lit up to start the show.
