April 15, 2010
The Niftee 50ees Classic Drive In completed week number 2 at Kroger's with another great turn out of street rodders!
We hope everyone that attended the Lone Star Round up in Austin had a wonderful trip and we welcome you back to Houston.
Please Note that we are temporarily moving the show time to start at 6:30PM until further notice.
We ask all rodders to please refrain from coming earlier and earlier each week before the show times are alotted.
We appreciate everyone's cooperation with our request in advance.
In Memory of Dan Pike
Our deepest sympathy to Dan's wife, Denise, the family and friends as they mourn the loss of their beloved husband, father and friend.
Dan passed away Monday morning and will be missed at our events but we know in spirit he will remain.
Please keep Dan's family in your thoughts and prayers.
We are thankful that Dan was able to finish his very nice custom 56 Ford and attend our events during the brief time of his completed project.
Ford T-Bird Fans!
This is Hope Elms. My father has a beautiful 1965 Special Laundau Thunderbird...all original with only 26,000 miles. It has a 390, beautiful white pearl interior, carpet is great, dash is perfect, has a breakaway steering wheel and everything is immaculate. This is the only year that the Ember Glow was used on the Tbird. It is really beautiful. The only updates have been exterior paint and a new vinyl top.
He is letting it go for $14,000 or best offer....but someone is very interested in it at the moment. If you know of anyone who would like to see it...it is at 32003 Nichols Sawmill Road in Magnolia. This is our shop address.

Sunday April 18th. 2010 (Not Much Time Left " Reply ASAP")
I am getting married April 18th. and am hoping you can help me find an amazing getaway vehicle. I don't know if you, or any members of Space City Cruisers would have something we can rent for the day. Most things we find on line are all newer, exotic cars, and we like the more classic ones. If you have any ideas, or perhaps can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
My original ride fall through just earlier this week, and now I'm scrambling!!

Saturday January 8th. 2011
Hi my name is Lisa and I need classic antique car for my wedding. I am trying to plan things ahead of time. Our wedding is January 8, 2011 down in Galveston.
We are getting married at 5:30 and would like the car from the church to the reception and then from the reception to the hotel. Everything is within a couple miles. Would be a total of 6 hours but not solid because there would be a break during the reception.
We are coming down to Galveston this summer in June. We live up in the Fort Worth area. Would possibly like to meet with someone who would be interested in this when we are down in June.
Thanks so much!! Hopefully I can get some leads on this!!
Space City Cruisers News
Didn't make it to any car shows this weekend, most of my time was spent at Houston Raceway Park watching 8,000 horsepower Top Fuel Dragsters slingshot down there quarter mile track at 3.75 seconds/322 Miles Per Hour . If it wasn't for a couple of fine folks sending me some pictures I wouldn't have much to pass on to ya'll out there!
John Bockelman made a trip to the Home Depot's Friday Night Cruise-In, I want to say in Pearland. His pictures are at his own album site, so it made it kinda easy to transfer them on to ya'll with the magic of coping and pasting.
Henry Rabago, with the Space City Cruisers, ventured out to Alvin's Crawfest Car Show Saturday knowing that it was going to rain. He wasn't the only one, he said their were about 40 other die hard's there also.

Crawfest Car Show April 10th. Alvin, Tx.
Well the weather man sure missed this one. Denny, Cindy and I rode down to the Alvin Car Show . The show brought about 40 cars out. There was no help from mother nature this weekend. It rained all day on us. Every time you would think it was ending, dry down your car and bam here comes the rain again. We stuck it out to the end. Thank God for the good crawfish and gumbo they were serving. Had a good time by all. Here are some picutres of the trucks and cars from the show.

Some More Pictures Of Car Show In Alvin!!
The show was great. We battled the rain all day long, but it didn't stop most of us. It would rain just enough to wet the cars, and stop just long enough for everyone to wipe them down again. Then, another shower followed. There were about 40 or so of us that stuck it out to the end. All in all, it was fun. I met a lot of great people and seen some interesting cars that I had not seen before. The food was excellent. Crawfish is always tasty, but it was the gumbo that had me going back for more. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next shows that follow.

SCC FUN RUN, "WHERE DAT"
April 17th. Sat. WHERE DAT?? FUN RUN by Space City Cruisers-- All Money Collected
Will Be Donated To The Texas Lions Camp In Memory of Lady Lion Loretta Dock. Door
Prizes, Raffles. Registration at 9:30am & leave at 10:30 from Kelly's on 518 in League City
Click here: 04-17-10 WHERE DAT?? FUN RUN By Space City Cruisers
We hope to raise lots of money for the camp. 100% of the money raised will go directly
to the Lions Camp in Loretta's memory. All prizes, trophies, etc will either be donated or purchased by a club member. If you can find anyone who wants to donate something
to raffle, or as door prizes, please let me know and I can send them a donation letter.
(see attachment for this donation letter)
The "theme" of the run is "Where DAT???" Part of the fun and "adventure" of the event
is being led to the different places--if we announce the locations beforehand, there will
be little or no surprises. That is why the flier says that the stops and directions to them
will be provided at registration.
We intend to introduce participants to "out of the way" Texas Ice Houses that many,
if not most have not heard of or been to. All are in the Galveston/Brazoria area, but
most are not on major highways. The places themselves are all clean, safe and
patronized by locals in the Hitchcock and Santa Fe area. The total trip is around
Since these places sell alcohol, we designed the route to begin with a food
establishment (Kelley's). At the third stop, snacks will be provided and the last stop, sells burgers and other fast food type items.
I hope this helps in at least partially answering questions that are directed to you
concerning the run.
Thanks For Your Help
