That looks like a 1960 model Pontiac Catalina 4 door hardtop.The hard top had a much different back glass than the sedan which had a solid post between the doors.The hardtop glass was nearly straight up and down and sat under kind of a ledge in the roof where the sedan had a sloped glass that fit smooth to the roof.Where was the Dairyette and when did it close?

See the hill behind the cars? That's where Quizno's sits today. That was the location of the Volkswagon dealership. The Dairyette sits where the Mall is. A gentleman by the name of Jack Smith owned the Dairyette. Jukebox inside with speakers everywhere outside. This was "THE PLACE" back then.

Everybody went there. Just imagine a giant antique car show today and you will get an idea of what it looked like around that giant parking area. The cops would circle through the lot but most times they did stop it was to shoot the bull. It was a different time than today.

Is this where New Century sits now or where the actual mall sits?
