Et Cetera


Driving in Style:
The life of vintage car collectors


Vintage cars line up outside the diner.

Parking spaces in front of the diner are reserved for vintage cars, leaving customers with window seats looking out onto a different era. The cruise-in attracts 20 to 30 cars on average every Tuesday from May to October and runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Silver Diner

The Silver Diner provides the perfect backdrop for the cars.  Designed to look like the diners of the '50s, the hot rods parked out front look more realistic than the modern cars relegated to parking behind the diner.

The diner has been holding cruise-ins for several years, recently adding a live band to the outdoor exhibition.
