Mug n’ Bun + Speed and Wings

What would you do if you and the family went out on a Friday night to the local Mug n’ Bun, A&W or Dairy Queen for a little summer fast food and found yourself surrounded by fabulous and rare Superspeedway Muscle Cars from the late 60s? That is just what happened to some folks in Indianapolis last weekend. We were there with a 100 of our fastest friends to show our cars in the infield and take a lap of the famed Indy Speedway during the Brickyard 400.

Part of the ritual of such events is a night at a local old school fast food drive-in. This Mug n’ Bun is only a few short blocks from the historical Indy Speedway and was the perfect spot for our informal gathering. Obviously, this site caused quite a traffic jam in the parking lot and surrounding streets.

 

To see anyone of these cars on the street is a rare sighting but to find them gathering in one location for a regular night out on the town will take your breath away. To top it off some NASCAR TV announcers even showed up at the same time to chow down and take in the sights.

So, what would YOU DO if you found this site at your local drive-in one Friday night? Leave us you comments below.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
