PUNXSUTAWNEY â€“ It's not quite the parking lot at Mel's Diner in the George Lucas film â€śAmerican Graffiti,â€ť but itâ€™s close enough.
Friday, the Vintage Steel Car Club of Punxsy hosted its third drive-in of the summer at Advance Auto Parts, which drew 56 different classic, vintage and otherwise sweet vehicles from around the region.
The gathering â€“ and the open membership club â€“ is a work in progress,said club founder Doug Hollenbaugh.
â€śWe just like to keep it open to everyone and have a good time,â€ť he said.
(The Spirit is pleased to share with our readers vignettes of life in the 19th Century as originally reported in past issues of the newspaper. These reprinted stories include their original headlines and spelling.)

And Half a Dozen Others Resuscitated
After Life Seemed Extinct
