The Wagon Wheel Drive-In was opened by June 1951 when it was operated by J.D. Willbanks. It could acommodate 250 cars and as it was a fly-in-drive-in it could also accomodate 8 airplanes. It was still open in 1957.

The Wagon Wheel Drive-In opened in June of 1951 according to an item in Billboard. The Wagon Wheel was also a Fly-In Drive-In accommodating eight airplanes.

A closer address is 13020 Co Rd 24, Spearman, TX. The drive-in was located SW of the town. There is no evidence in a 1962 aerial photo of an airstrip nearby (that I can see). However, the back of the drive-in seems to have ramps that can accommodate small aircraft.

Today, a restaurant called the “Hungry Cowboy” occupies the property, although you can still see the ramps on the north side. http://tinyurl.com/zbefpme

I think this might be the Fly-in Drive-in mentioned briefly on page 99(chapter 10 – strange drive-in’s) of Drive-in theaters a history of their inception in 1933(Kerry Segrave).
