Spotted this baywindow food truck in the new Polo ad that was created to look like a mass Drive-in get together.

With coronavirus changing the world, drive-ins may make a comeback.

These do come up from time to time. I see the last ones on Bid-or-Buy sold for around R4500. Pole and 2 speakers.
Quick google search only show foreign sites having for sale :cry:
