I must have missed the curb boys.

What did they do, sell newspapers?

During the fifties and sixties, in the south, one sure destination for hungry teens, and hungry teens wanting to neck, was a local restaurant in NC called "Tom and Sarah's".
I worked at TS 1958-1959, age 12-13.

local drive-in, later re-named Kopp's.

The car hops were usually high school aged girls,
and wore short uniforms and occasionally were
on roller skates. Just like the scene at Al's Drive-In
restaurant on the USA television show, "Happy
Days" (on the TV show the girls were women).

Bikers and Fonzie types were not there, mostly
