RANCH DRIVE-IN Hartselle, Ala.

The operators of this drive-in have done their best to bring a touch of the West into the deep South.

Built at a cost of over $85,000, this 400 car ozoner carried the western mood into the concrete block and frame cone cession building. The walls and front of the concession stand are panelled with pine, and the exposed beams in the ceiling help add to the jaunty wide open spaces atmosphere. The toilets are given the same decorative treatment.
