Big Daddy’s Drive In wants to bring back the shiny chrome and vintage vroom of yesteryear with classic car shows.
The long-established restaurant along Auburn Way South will hold the first of what organizers hope will be many Friday night car shows on June 5. The car show will run 6 to 10 p.m.
“It used to be a big thing in Auburn. It used to be the thing to do,” said Krista Whitish, who worked at the drive-in regularly as a teenager and helped out at frequent nostalgic car shows.
She is now leading the push for a return of the popular summer gathering.
“It’s kind of like a blast from the past,” she said. “A lot of people have been asking about it.”
Whitish welcomes car clubs and individual enthusiasts to join the show.
