Cookees Drive-In has acquired a 1956 Chevrolet! We wanted something that we could have in our Cruise Nights, as well as in other cruises and car shows. We will be working on it ourselves, as well as getting help from some Pleasanton folks to help us get the car restored. Stay tuned and we will post pictures as we go along.

be redone. Also needs a floor sections. Body mounts are good. Trunk is
