      Oh, that brings back memories! My father used to take us to the A&W when I was a kid.

      That fake food (and tray) is expensive! I was thinking of getting some for use when I take my classics to shows, but decided not to spend the cash on it. Instead, I plan to make a drive-in speaker pole with speakers to put next to mine. Heck, I've got about 40+ drive-in speakers, so it won't cost me much to make. :-) (No, I didn't steal 'em, a defunct drive-in let me have them.)

      The drive in speakers would be very cool!

      So you have the Edsel, you have the Caddy, what's the other classic in your stable?

    6. loungelistener 83 months ago | reply

      Two Edsels... the '58 Pacer sedan (4dr), a '59 Villager wagon, and the '53 Cadillac Series 62, also a 4dr.

      That's great! The shot I have of a Bel Air with a drive-in tray has no food. The fake rootbeer floats really makes it!

      I just fainted from a wave of nostalgia. Oh the memories. The A&W was the place to be in Marshalltown Iowa in the 1950's.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Ford Galaxie Page, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      Apparently someone on Facebook "borrowed" this one from me. It has since been making it's way around the internet. Although I am glad that people are seeing the photo, it was copyrighted and I had not authorized anyone else to use it. Anyway, I hope that it will inspire all those who do see it to think about a time when things were different....Dare I say better, in my opinion.

      I've absolutely lost track at this point of how frequently my photography, graphic design and now jewelry designs have been stolen and used/replicated online. I had to have tumblr block my stream here years back because it had gotten so bad. Internet technology is both a blessing and a curse. I couldn't survive without it. Literally. I do all my business and make my income online.

      Dusty_73 is this your blog nostalgia049.wordpress.com/2009/04/19/aw-root-beer-stands/? I used your pic a day ago on FB for "name that car" after seeing it linked on a friends page. the link came from that 2009 blog.

      Thanks Gato Ranch....I haven't had too much of a problem yet, and I have had a lot of productive contacts through my flickr account, so I guess for me the benefits are outweighing the problems.

      Zoom44, thanks for pointing that out. No, that's not my blog and they don't give me credit or a link back to the photo. I may have to send a little friendly reminder to them.

      Don't forget that Bob Seger's "Night Moves" was inspired at the A&W here in Ann Arbor. Not standing anymore, but was pretty close to my house.
