LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of current and former Laurel residents gathered at their favorite old-fashioned burgers and fries restaurant Saturday night for an annual reunion featuring good times and great cars.

An estimated 1,200 people, some from as far away as California and Alaska, got together at PDI, or Phillip's Drive-in, to reminisce about the good ole days, when cars and french fries were bigger than life.

It's the third year for the reunion at PDI, which first opened in 1948.

Folks enjoyed the food, of course, along with live msic and a car show, featuring more than 120 antique and classic vehicles.
