    I wonder as to how many of their patronage mistaked their diners for small-cabined dark movie theaters :scratchchin:

    Ko-Ko-Mo Dine In Your Car sign, the Drive-in was located at the intersection of Routes 79 and 80 in Bossier City, Louisiana. The sign and the building have not survived and all of the parcels at the intersection are vacant today.

    It was closed down, torn down, and replaced by a Boston Market, which went bust not long after.

    I hate it when local history is wiped out like that. It adds insult to injury when the thing that replaced it is a failure.

    Yup, and at least late Seventies, judging by the dual headlamps on the tractor, which, IIRC, were introduced in '76(?).
