Car Hops at Antique Car Shows

Antique car shows are a great venue for car hops. It can be very simple to set up a drive-in style catering event to make the antique car show a lot more fun. Having a waiter or waitress bring food to people in their cars can be a great way to make a car show that much more exciting.

Make an antique car show fun by serving good food that deal with a fifties theme. A good choice of food would be hamburgers and fries. You can also serve ice cream sundaes and milkshakes.

A car hop can be a fun way to bring customer’s their food. Servers can bring the food out to people in their car in roller skates and poodle skirts. Have them wear car hop costumes and have fun with the drive-in-car hop theme.

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.

If you are looking for inspiration for car hops you can look for car hop costume videos online or on YouTube. There are also other older television shows or movies that often used car hops. The most popular shows were Happy Days and American Graffiti.

While most television shows and movies showed that waiters and waitresses brought food to the cars mainly in roller skates, that is not always true. A lot of waiters and waitresses did not use roller skates. On the contrary, most car hops worked on foot.

The reason it was called a car hop was because the waiter or waitress had to hop over a car when they noticed a new customer. That signaled to the customer that the hopped car was the waiter or waitress’ car. Tips were placed in the car on the 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.
