AT THE MOVIES...
We made a cruise from the host hotel to the local drive-in movie place to see "Gone In 60 Seconds".
This was the Kingman Drive-In, Delaware Ohio.
CLICK-> '70 GTO Judge hardtop Orbit Orange waits in line to cruise to the movies.
CLICK-> '69 GTO Judge hardtop black in the parking lot line.
CLICK-> Cars enter the movie entrance with their free passes.
CLICK-> Array of GTOs #1 arriving at the drive-in
CLICK-> Array of GTOs #2 arriving at the drive-in
CLICK-> Array of GTOs #3 arriving at the drive-in
CLICK-> Adults on the playground snapped pictures of the many cars while standing on top of the slide. Later, the movie staff brought out a ladder so the many photographers could get a good view of the GTOs spread out across the drive-in lot.
CLICK-> '68 GTO hardtop and a Judge wait for the movie to begin. The movie was a hit with the crowd. I give it at least 4 stars. It would earn a 5th star if there were some GTOs in it.
CLICK-> '68 GTO convt belonging to John Jump was Picture Of The Week on 7/9/00. It sits next to a '69 convertible at the movies. Both are the same color, Verdoro Green.
CLICK-> Same GTO convertibles from the rear.
CLICK-> '66 GTO hardtop gold with red fenders next to a movie speaker. Sharp photo! This one would make a neat computer wallpaper image.
CLICK-> 'GTOs from the side with Indy GTO Assn member Chris Smetana staring down the snout of a Judge.
CLICK-> Sneaking around #1 we check out the old projector room at the drive-in.
CLICK-> Sneaking around #2 the projectionist keeps an eye on things through this window. Since he stands up a lot, he's got some very squishy carpet to stand on here.
CLICK-> Sneaking around #3 the left projector with the movie reel "Gone In 60 Seconds" ready to run.
CLICK-> Sean's '68 GTO hardtop white at movies.
|Here's an update on "THE MOVIES" added 12 Aug 2001.
I got a note that says:
I live in Columbus Ohio and stopped by the 2000 GTOAA show and really enjoyed myself. It was nice to see photos from that show on your web site.
The reason for my writing, the Drive-In the show attendees visited in 2000 is to be torn down end of this season. My wife and I take our three girls there often and had the demolition rumor confirmed by one of their employees. What a sad day for Columbus, tract-homes in place of our drive-in. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I thought I'd mention it.
Well, I'm not a GTO owner (yet), but hope to be someday.
