Brookside In The 70's

In my high school days, cruising the Restless Ribbon (aka Peoria in Brookside) and/or hanging out in various parking lots socializing, was just one of those things that we did Friday and Saturday nights.  I have fond memories of getting a bite to eat at Pennington's Drive-In as well as playing on my friend's CB radio while we cruised.  

As KOTV prepares to move into a new building they are going through all of their old video and sharing some of what they found.  Filmed in Bellaire Village 1979, catch glimpses of the Camelot, the cars and the styles of the day.

As a teen of the sixties, and an Edison Eagle alum,I have spent more than my share of time cruising the Restless Ribbon. Many a Friday night was spent in Pennington's with my girl, an order fries and two cherry Cokes.
Since I had friends at Hale and Rogers, I frequented Boots Drive-Inn that was located at 18th and Sheridan. Great times.
