Dick Drost – Oddity

Allow me to reminisce for a moment, if you will…

I’m covering some old territory here when I used to ride south to Florida in the early 80s. I remember stopping on the east side of Chicago for gas. I asked the attendant (yes, they had gas jockeys back then) for a quick place to eat. He told me about this truck stop down the road on the 65, just off of U.S. 10, called Naked City. Of course, I just had to check it out. It was in the middle of a nudist club, and the staff were members of the club. It wasn’t anything special, other than an oddity. The owner of the place, Dick Drost, was later charged with exploiting children in California.

Naked City closed in 1986.

Dick Drost, former owner of a Roselawn, Illinois nudist camp called Naked City (previously known as Zoro Nudist Camp), promoter of Mr. and Miss Nude Teeny Bopper Universe Pageants, and proprietor of Naked City West in Southern California was booked on 5 felony and 4 misdemeanors charges on April 7, 1990 in Riverside, California. — Naked City’s Dick Drost

  1. I used to work at Ohare Airport in the fabulous 70’s, Me and a co worker got in that plane and we almost lost our chicago hot dog lunch, the smell was unreal, pure ass. There were clothes everywhere, dildos, beer can, tools, a saw, a lathe, and a taco machine in there. Up in the cockpit, inside the glovebox, were a bunch of fake beards and a shitted up pair of underware, I couldn’t believe it, this thing was in the air at somepoint?…….I still have flashbacks from seeing that, al those sweaty 70’s people, fartin and making tacos wearing fake beards…..

  2. Yeah I remember the Dick Drost deHavilland Comet. Knew a pilot that flew the Drost Ghost. Said it smelled like a wet toolbox with a black sock in it. No one ever flew on it cuz it was scary. He said as it was taxing, it felt like the wings were gonna break off. Up in the air he said it shuddered like a house in a tornado in kansas. He used to make the sign of the cross as he put the landing gear down. He also said he ran out of gas numerous times on the Ghost. Usually near indiana….strange…..like the plane itself.

  3. Dick Drost was an airplane that was parked at ohare airport in the 70’s cuz it broke down, alternator or water pump blew out or something. The airplanes name was Dick Drost.
