Chuck-A-Burger Drive-In

A St. Louis icon and the usual hangout of the Avenue Gents, Chuck-A-Burger Drive-In has been rockin' and rollin' since 1957. "Chuck" has been offering full-time Curb Service since day one and is still going strong 55 years later. Once a month from May-October Chuck-A-Burger offers free cruise nights where St. Louisans can come and show off their hot rods, order a REAL malt from a car hop, and be taken back to simpler time.

Some 2012 Mid-west Events

Avenue Gents C.C.

We are a traditional car club based in St. Louis, Mo and surrounding areas. Our focus is primarily pre 1964 cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Our cars are built to our liking and are our true passion. The club was originally founded between 1949-1952 in St. Louis, Mo by a group of young friends who wanted to live fast and drive faster. As time went on, the club deteriorated and was lost over the years. We caught up with a founding member and have decided to bring the club back to life through a younger generation. Our mission is to build traditionally styled cars with a touch of modern day ingenuity.

64 Wagon "Before" pics

Here are a few pics of the wagon the day it was purchased.

1963 Comet *Main Attraction*

Gold lace and endless line over the pearl blue base coat give this '63 Comet a really clean and custom look. This car is owned by Ryan.

1953 Bel Air tudor sedan

The newest car to join the Gents is this very solid '53 Bel Air. The car came from Texas via Alton IL and was aquired by one of the club members(Shane) in a trade for a 31 Dodge Coupe.

1964 Bel Air wagon *Moonlight Mile*

This 1964 Bel Air Station Wagon is one of the club members(Steve) current projects. The wagon is currently in primer and getting some final body work done before paint. More pics will be posted as progress is made.
