“It was an extremely dangerous road, not curvy and not well traveled...yet in a strange, teen-aged, automotive way, it was a fun road...a thrill seeker sort. We called it “The Seven Dips” and it was known for several counties around.
Small towns didn’t offer much in the way of recreation for teen-agers back when I was one. In our small town, Denison, there were two movie theaters, one bowling alley, a skating rink, one public swimming pool, a local hang-out soda shop, one A & W Root Beer Drive-in and a drive-in outdoor movie.....All in all, not much to do if you were underage...at least, under legal driving age...and that’s all any of us small town boys wanted...a driver’s license.
The A & W Drive-in was the local cruisin’ hangout on the weekends...and of course, the drive-in movies were always a kick...we’d sneak more people into the drive-in movies, in the trunk, than the total number of double features ever shown there”.
