Bob’s Big Boy Classic Car Show

The greater implications of convenience, of protected left hand turns leading into giant parking lots that separate streets from warehouses selling discount goods, make me feel a little sad. But, I still believe there’s something to admire about our initial enthusiasm for it. Drive-in movies. TV dinners. The carhop.

There was something so innocent about these innovations that has captured the hearts of American dreamers.  Here, at the oldest remaining Bob’s Big Boy in the country, you can relive that innocence every weekend.  The Classic Car Show, hosted by the Burbank Road Kings, gives car owners an opportunity to show off their classics.  On Saturdays and Sundays, you can drive up for some old-fashioned carhop service.  And where better to experience it all than this streamline modern monument?
