Ford’s Drive In – Great Falls, Montana

Ford’s Drive In opened in 1954.  The radial design, with its central pylon and cable supported overhang of this one reminds me of late ’30s designs like Wayne McAllister’s Herbert’s or Simon’s, but the straight car awning and parking pattern negates that design.  Maybe it was added later.  Cheeseburger. Fries. Milkshake.  I appreciated that the milkshake at this one was a proper consistency. I like a thick milkshake as much as the next guy, but I’ve been on a streak where I’ve been getting what seems like straight soft serve with a straw. photo DSCF5553.jpg
