Classic Cruise News!
September 1, 2010
by: Randy Shannon
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
It's hard to believe another season at Niftee 50ees is now rounding the back stretch and lining up to a final 6th season of cruise nights!
There are 11 scheduled weekends left for the season at Kroger's and the Niftee 50ees Classic Drive In on Saturday nights.
We are being asked for show events at several other locations and or "Pop Up" events around the community.
We will see what we can handle and possibly keep everyone posted as to where we will be and fill what request we can.
It has been a rather warm summer and our hats off to those who have attended the events each and every weekend in the heat. Very true rodders I must admit but the way we see it is to enjoy all you can while you can.
The Niftee 50ees sound machine will be at the Long Horn Rod and Custom Show in Old Town Spring again this year to be a part of this annual event.
We hope many will plan on being there again for this two day event!
We would like to send our thanks to Dale Russel and the entire members of the event for inviting us to do the honors with the Good Time Oldies music and to participate in the event.
Come out, support and be a part of the legend showing in Old Town Spring!
Saturday - Sunday September 25-26, 2010

Other News / Feedback
I was great seeing you again last week Saturday. Your car show sure is doing great.
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your announcement about the Texas Honor Ride. We’re competing with a lot of other car shows on Sept 25th so we need all the promo that we can get. I was really impressed with the way you read our flyer for just a few seconds and picked out all the high points for your announcement.
I finally got a chance to see about getting our flyer on your “Flyer” page and I see it’s already there. I’m assuming you went ahead and did that. Thank you very much for doing that.
Thank you so much for supporting the Texas Honor Ride and our wounded heroes,
President, Texas Honor Ride
My name is Robin Vela and I am the fund raising coordinator for the Schultz Elementary PTO.
We are hosting a fall festival on Oct. 22 from 6-9pm, and would like to have a few cars there just for the kids to see.
If there is anyone that you think would be interested in coming could you please give them my contact info. Also not sure if you know this guy but there is a guy driving around this area in a Lamborghini with super heroes on it we would like to have him as well as other cars like that.
We only have room for about 5 or 6 cars total. If you could assist us that would be awesome. There will be no fees or contest its just for show.
Thanks and I will wait to hear from you.

Well, the Home Depot parking lots at both Pearland and Kemah are filling
up as to a hint of cool evenings that are approaching. September should
make for some nice cruises to all Cruise-In Nights all over the Houston &
I finally made my way to Pearland's Friday Night Cruise-In after trying to
make this for over two years. Met up with one of the original organizers
of the Cruise Night, Glenn Hill, and some of his volunteers. Of course
our conversation always comes down, "how are things going"? Glenn is
on the same page as the Miller Family that over see the Chick-Fil-A
Sat. Cruise-In, in Kemah. If someone isn't there to keep a handle on some
folks, things will get out of control, and in the end, everyone else will
suffer the consequences of finding a new cruise location. Glenn Hill
and the Mike Miller family with all their volunteers also need y'all's help
in keeping a handle on things around you, at both Cruise-In locations.
Always use the politeness approach to everyone, in getting your
message across to them, that, "This is not allowed on these premises"!
I know, like myself, and with all my cruisin' buddies we keep an eye out
for each others precious rides in keeping spectators having the irresistible
urge of touching them. Us older folks, were taught in our upbringing, that,
"if it doesn't belong to you, you don't touch it" or "If you can't afford to
buy it, don't touch it". Okay enough of this, I think y'all know where
I'm coming from!!! As always, I want to send out a special THANKS to
Glenn Hill & the Mike Miller Family and all their helpers for devoting there
time to secure a safe and enjoyable environment for EVERYONE!!
Below is not only a link to my pictures of Pearland's Cruise-In but also
from my good friend and photographer Brian Starr, pictures of both
Pearland & Kemah Cruise-In pictures at his Web Site. Thank you Brian,
your pictures always have a different perspective look through the lens!
I took a break from taking pictures at Chick-Fil-A so I could relax and
kick some tires myself, look for the Car Boat in Brian's Kemah pictures!!

As we have mentioned in many previous newsletters, we receive hundreds of emails from our readers and friends alike.
As always, we appreciate everyone's input and feedback as it keeps us going.
Some items we would like to remind our readers is to make sure you take time to honor our fighting soldiers who are defending our freedom while many of us forget
their time and sacrifices, so we may all enjoy our freedoms.
Keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they serve our country.
Fly the flag in their honor and if you see them, be sure to thank them!
God Bless our troops serving.. and those that have fallen.
We all need to bring back the "Patriotism" we have all taken for granted.
In closing, be sure to enjoy your street rod and build it the way you like it.
After all it is your project, your money, and your ideas.
You may not please the next guy however..
Have fun and enjoy the ride!
