Our first Drive-in Diner. My brother Chris did all the assembly and Paint

Then we added our new canopy

Next we're gonna start making the interior items. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That looks very cool.  I could envision that being expanded with spaces for more cars and more people.  Great job.

I might suggest that you place the canopy at a right angle to the building.Arranged as is it tends to look like a gas station.Cars at food drive ins tend to park in arching rows like at a drive in movie theatre.Nice start.Are you going to add more canopys later?

Anyone have pictures of Fast Eddie's in Harrison Twp, MI. The building looks spot on.
