Car Hops And Antique Car Shows

By Jeffrey Jackson

Antique car shows are wonderful venues for car hops. Set up a drive-in style catering event and make your antique car show more fun. Dress up your waiter or waitress and have them bring food to the people in their cars.

Antique car shows are a great venue for car hops because you can use the fifties theme. Serve good food that goes with a car hop, such as hamburgers and fries. You can even serve ice cream sundaes if you like for dessert.

A car hop can be fun for customers. Servers bring out food to customers in their car. The waiters and waitresses wear their car hop costumes and have a lot of fun serving them.

Car hop costumes include sock hop attire. Poodle skirts, white socks, and a ponytail for girls, and blue jeans and a white t-shirt with hair slicked back is a great choice for guys. Add roller skates and you have the perfect car hop costume.

Search online for car hop costume ideas. You can look at YouTube, or older television shows and movies. Some good examples can be found on Happy Days or in American Graffiti.

While a lot of television shows and movies portray waiters and waitresses wearing roller skates that is not always the case. Actually, most car hops actually worked on foot. Only a few places made their servers wear roller skates.

Car hops were termed car hop because the server normally hopped on to or over his car to let the customers know where to put their change. Waiters and waitresses needed tips to make money. Customers left the tips in the server’s car on their way out.

Car hops are not as popular as they were in the 50s. Now there are only a few original drive-in stands left. Bringing back a car hop for an antique car show can be a great idea, and bring back good memories to the older generation.
