After the Hillfox drive-in closed and got redeveloped into the Hillfox value centre there was a short lived drive-in that operated out of the parking lot. All that remains of that is the entrance sign.

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

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:
