The Sugar N' Spice Drive In opened in 1961. Although it did not appear they still serve you at your car, a very funky teal and white car port serves as the parking area for the restaurant.

heck out the vintage drive-in eatery. The Diamond Drive-in has been a Clarksville, Arkansas landmark for over 40 years (since 1962). The restaurant itself is also designed in a diamond, which is an interesting touch. This diamond shape was much more prevalent on roadside structures during the 50's and 60's. 10-05

The Parkette Drive-in eatery still features a fancy mid-century marquee out front. The Parkette's sign also appears to be full neon.

The Parkette Drive-in is worth a visit if your passing through Lexington, KY. 10-05
