Ever wondered what it felt like to sit in a classic car at a Drive-In Theater? Well, you CAN! Experience it at the Dahl Auto Museum with the recreation of the Starlite Drive-In. The Starlite Drive-In opened June 17, 1949 in La Crosse with Robert Young in “Relentless”. Catering to the family trade, children under 12 were free and baby bottle warmers were provided at the concession stand. With space for 600 cars, there were ushers overseen by a ‘Traffic Chief’ with a jeep, provided to pull away disabled vehicles. At least for the opening, the projection booth had two operators and the screen was tilted and the closest rows of cars were at the greatest angle for easy viewing. The theater closed April 23, 1978, with “The Bad News Bears” and “The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training.” So who remembers the Starlite?? http://bit.ly/2WTkb4B

Vehicle of the Week: 1905 Cadillac Model F Touring Car!

This vehicle was believed to be the very first Cadillac Touring Car to be sold to a person living in La Crosse, Wisconsin at that time. The La Crosse City Attorney and Alderman, Paul W. Mahoney, purchased this 1905 Cadillac on May 24th, 1905 in the Chicago, Illinois area and had it shipped to La Crosse. This Cadillac is believed to be the only automobile known to exist on La Crosse’s north side in 1905. In 1995, it was bought by Stephen and Jeanne Keyser, who restored it with three years of painstaking work, and lots of help from their friends and family.

Our parents and us loved our Saturday afternoon at #dahlautomuseum !!! Thank you to Sam and for all of those who have put together such a nice museum! #museumsarefun
It's a real shame you have whiny unprofessional people working for your company who get favored and treated better than other employees for no reason. This place is a joke of a business and I will never be taking my car here again. Megan Haas, grow up and don't apply for a receptionist job if your don't wanna answer the phone, that's your job hunny 😘 This is a horrible business to work for, DO NOT RECCOMEND
