Sign this petition if you love drive-ins
September 19, 2013

Don Dzikowski: The reality is only a total of nine drive-ins, out of a total of some 120, will be awarded the digital projection equipment from Honda via Project Drive-in after Sept. 23. Please take a second to sign my petition to spur interest from The Big Three U.S. automakers to see if they’d be interested in following Honda, and benefit in the same big promotional opportunities and good will in helping to preserve a BIG PIECE of historic American car culture via helping to save additional drive-ins. Thanks.

The Skyline Drive-In: Don Dzikowski really gets it and you should too.  This situation is bigger than any one of us.  Come together and help save drive-ins.  Please sign the petition.  It’s fast and easy. Click the link below and join us on this petition.
