Going, going… wait, they’re back!


Near Brenham, Texas.

Mammas, lock up your daughters! Drive-ins are making a comeback, and we all know why they make for a great date. I shot this one while riding my Harley around and about Brenham and Chappell Hill, during one of the more unusual few months of my life.

Apparently now you can hear the soundtrack via your car radio, but I’m sure, as a confirmed Luddite, I would miss hauling that big clunky, terrible sounding speaker off the post and rolling it up in the car window.

I was at a drive-in (with my date) back in 1966 when my best friend Roger came running breathlessly up to the car. I rolled down the window and he said excitedly “Man, I just joined the army! I’m going to Vietnam!” That was the last time I ever saw him. We buried him less than a year later.
