Hot Rods Visit Drive-In

One day after their appearance at the Riverbank Family Night Out, some classic car owners/drivers return to town to Sno-White Drive-In to hang out, share stories and compare rides.

Except for the week of the cruise in nearby Modesto, a group comes on Thursday evenings to enjoy the summer air and gab. They share restoration and repair tips and talk about how things ‘used to be,’ but they have a request for passersby interested in their vehicles: Ask First, before touching, especially with youngsters likely to climb all over them.

Like the Concerts at the Park on Wednesdays, the Thursday Night Out at Sno-White sees a varying band of cars and owners who participate.
