Man did we have a big crowd to go along with the 9 Club Miatas. Judy was there in the VW Bug convertible with the kids, four Miatas from the Columbia area came over to check us out and Stacey invited half his neighborhood: a Miata, a Z3 and an actual Austin-Healy Bugeye Sprite, plus Bruce‘s sister, a friend and the friend’s kid in a Hyundai. Good thing the trip to the Big-Mo is 40 miles or the first car would have reached the drive-in about the same time as the last car left the Sonic.

We got to the drive-in about 40 minutes after they opened the gates and it was packed. There were only a few spots together on the back row, the rest of our caravan had to tuck into spots scattered through out the place. I’m sure the draw was the two movies on the bill, Shrek and Mummy II.

Of course just as we were settling in, the rain started. Not too hard and it stopped just as soon as we all got our boots off and tops up. The silver lining was that it cooled the temperature down by about 10-15 degrees. Nice night for a movie. Shrek was the good movie for the night. Of the half dozen flicks we’ve seen here, I think it was the best one.

Only a few stayed after the first movie. Good thing some of us left too, as there was a line of people waiting outside the drive-in to get in to see Mummy II.
