John Molnar, Jack MolnarColor64 v7.32, Color 64, Network 64
"It was one of the few Color 64 boards that had hard drives (40mb scsi)rather than floppy disks; was also a part of the Network 64 system (Color 64 boards with software that could transfer data between them autonomously overnight). When the sysop closed the board, all the equipment was donated to The Drive Inn BBS. Both sysops were close friends." - Jack Molnar

(1987)
Bob MorrisonColor64 v7.32
"The Drive Inn was a popular Commodore BBS for many years that had an annual picnic features the famous "Oldies vs. Youngsters" softball game. Many Commodore users, especially from the local TCCUG user group, frequented this BBS. After many years of operation (ten?) the BBS eventually closed. Sadly, after suffering with declining physical health for many years, the SysOp tragically killed his wife and then himself not long after." - Anonymous
