Big Boy Bash
Sure wish I could make it to the Bob's Big Boy drive-in. I have fond memories of that first 'store' on Colorado Blvd. in Glendale, CA. Way back when (in the 60s), one of my clients was Robert (Bob) Wian, the founder of Bob's Big Boy.
He was a true gentleman and an early embracer of the then budding, technology movement. He felt his employees were not being honest and were stealing tons from his then 5 locations. He came to me to work out a computerized accounting method that would track his inventory and reduce theft. We did, it worked, and he went on to grow the business, eventually selling out to Marriott.
Even back then, Bob's locations were always a magnet for Wed. night drives. All those muscle cars from the 60s and 70s would clog Colorado Blvd. driving the locals nuts. I must confess that I also joined the crowd, with my 1964 Goat (GTO). Wish I still had that classic.
Anyway, thanks for allowing my memories to come floating back.
