Watching movies at the drive-in theater was the main hang-out on weekends, especially for teenagers. The car culture was a big part of society. You'll notice that cars are often mentioned in the novel.
Cars were a major status symbol.
Two popular cars that are mentioned in
The Outsiders are the
Cars in the 1960s
Chevy Corvair
and the
Ford Mustang
Written by S.E. Hinton (started writing it when she was 15: took her 2 years to finish)
Published in 1967
Story was inspired by a real-life event at Hinton's high school in Tulsa, OK
The Outsiders is widely considered the first realistic young-adult novel. Her realistic writing was based on things she knew (The story is set in Tulsa in 1967, and the lead characters are based on people she knew; Ponyboy is based on her boyfriend for example.).
Other Hinton novels include Rumble Fish, Tex,
Taming the Star Runner, and That was Then,
This is Now.
The movie was released in 1983.
The Outsiders
The drive-in wasn't the only place to show off cars. Drive-in restaurants were also popular places to take dates and hang-out with friends. Gangs also used drive-in restaurants as hang-outs.
