Amazing story about the “working girls.” Bet this wasn’t the only drive-in where stuff like this was going on. You wouldn’t think a drive-in would be the best spot for some private fun of that kind anyway. But I guess if business is good then what the heck. Glad to hear it’s still an operating drive-in. Certainly not often these days to hear the phrase “this drive-in is still open.” Thanks for the nice background details Mike.

Mike: I enjoyed putting them up for you very much. You’ll probably think of a few others in Augusta that you might have forgotten about as time goes by. If so just send them to me.

MORE NICK, if you still have that picture of the MODJESKA being torn down do you think you can get it on CT.Also the box office at Regency Mall. I gave the pictures to ROBIN ,but haven’t seen any of them.I can’t remember what else i sent,but if you could get them on it would be great. TLSLOEWS sent her some Drive-in pictures from Nashville so I hope he has better luck.Maybe He outta send them to you,I think the newness of CT has worn off with Robin.

Though listed on Hwy 65, the drive-in is actually a ½ block north on Westwood Dr.
