IT MAY BE THE 21ST CENTURY BUT YOU CAN STILL GO TO A DRIVE-IN MOVIE
Drive in movies are part of a golden past era-we have discussed that concept at length in the past.
But we were only half right because many creative communities have brought the drive-in magic back to a new audience.
MYSTAR TIME CAPSULE: 1973-THE DAWN OF THE BUMPER CARS
The new 1973 car models hit the dealerships in late 1972. The Apollo space program would close its doors shortly before Christmas 1972 as the last joy ride to the moon.
And it was fondly remembered as the magical time before disco broke a musical two by four over our heads.
But a two by four was broken over Detroit's head for the 1973 car models.
All 1973 cars were required by law to have bumpers that withstood a 5 mph crash.
MYSTAR TIME CAPSULE: HOW 1971 MUSCLE CARS FOOLED CAR INSURANCE COMPANIES
The Plymouth Road Runner ad in the May 1971 edition of Hot Rod magazine was designed to appeal to a young male driver with a lead foot. These drivers were not (then, now or anytime) the ideal candidates for car insurance.
High speed and inexperience are a pretty dangerous mix with the ten-feet-tall-and-bullet-proof philosophy of the average young male.
