Here is an example of the classic Mars Carhop hat. Just like your Mom wore Robert! How may Lime Rickies did this hat deliver?

My mom was a carhop at the Mars when she was young. Her name was Helen Will. She talked about it a lot.

I shot this pic in 1978 while visiting a friend. I was a photography student in San Francisco at the time. I am sorry to learn Mars was not preserved.

I grew up in Fresno and dragged Belmont with my friends, lol. I also worked as a car hop at Port George Drive-In for a while when I was 18. Loved their Hamburger Subs! Good times. Sad to hear the area in now in disrepair.

Of the two drive in's, Bob's and Mars, I liked Mars because when you were booted out for not buying anything you could go across the street and sit in the self service car wash lot and still check out all the people on Belmont. It seemed all the "surfer types" would be at Bob's(surfing in Fresno?) and the more "hard a**es" would be at Mars. Don't know which category I thought I was in but I didn't drive a woody or a panel truck. My 61 Bel-Air sat so low the only drive in I went to was the Moon Glo cause I didn't scrape the frame when looking for a parking space.

I think they resurrected this on West Shaw Avenue recently.

As a young child, I remember going to Mars with a much older sister and her high school friends. Everyone ordered burgers and Cherry-Lime Rickys.
