Niftee 50ees Classic Drive In
By: Randy Shannon
The 6th Annual Monster Classic Car Show has come and gone for another year at the Niftee 50ees Classic Drive In.
We wanted to congratulate our many street rodders for an exceptional turnout and exhibition of their cars and costumes. Many thanks to certain participants for their additional support and participation such as Rusty Allison, Sam Stahl, Larry, and Angel for their great performance as the Blues Brothers, Marilyn Monroe, and other celebrates.
Gary and Susan and friends provided our Checkerboard dance floor and also participated in our street dance which proved to be a lot of fun. We appreciate their support and assistance with the exhibit.
Angel knocked everyone out with her Marilyn Monroe routine which had all the guys standing in line waiting for autographs to be had.
Our thanks to the band members for their entertainment and back up for the "Blues Brothers" entertainment.
To all of the street rodders we say thanks for an out standing show. We hope everyone had as much fun as we did and we appreciate everyone's effort in participating in costume decor to enhance the show and bringing out all the wonderful classic street rods, race cars, special interest cars. Our thanks to the Delorean Club for bringing a special door prize with a beautiful classic wall art scene that was given away to a lucky street rodder.
Special guest appearances were the Conroe Cruisers, NW Houston Vette Rods, Delorean Club, His and Her Club, and visitors from Austin, Dallas, California, Pearland, Sugarland, Katy, Kemah, Kingwood, Crosby, Humble, Magnolia, Tomball, and if we missed anyone we apologize.
It was a busy night on our behalf and we are sure we missed special recognition to some of you.
Most importantly is our gratitude to the property management at the Stables Town Center, all of the merchants and tenants, and most importantly to Kroger's for their support.
In the world we live in it is unfortunate that any feedback that these people receive is mostly negative from someone who doesn't have a life, has nothing better to do other than complain, or just want to be noticed by complaining.
For the hundreds of other people who enjoy a night out of fun it simply goes un noted or reported to these merchants and property management people who try to provide such a wonderful facility for us to participate and enjoy our simple pleasure of fun as a family show of street rod fun.
I speak not only for ourselves but for many other car clubs, event host who try to provide a place for the classic car shows and other exhibitions to exist.
We all should consider the efforts and should appreciate all the organizational efforts that these people put on everyone's behalf.
It is a tremendous effort, and liability not to mention work involved to make the exhibitions exist.
It is our responsibility as street rodders to not only support but also abide by all the rules and guidelines that are required by property owners, state laws, and exhibitors that allow and promote these shows.
Responsible behavior, participation and respect for yourself and others will result in a successful event at any show conducted.
Those that wish not to usually are the one's that cause events to end.
Your all wonderful people and we are pleased that you chose to participate at Niftee 50ees 6th Annual Monster Classic Car Show.
You were awesome!
Two weeks left for our 2009 season at Kroger's.
Our final two weeks are scheduled for this weekend, Saturday night - November 7th
and the following Saturday night, November 14th which will conclude our yearly event at Kroger's.
We wish to say thank you for another successful and safe year as we wind down our events.
We will conclude our season with one more show scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2009 at The Room Store located at Brittmore and I-10.
The show will include food, trophies, and door prizes as well as indoor restroom facilities, coffee, and antique stores located next door for Holiday Shopping.
The Room Store is providing the parking lot for all classic street rodders and our farewell Niftee 50ees 2009 tour.
We are hoping to have a minimum of 100 cars but not limited to at our final show of 2009.
Details coming soon!

Three weekends of unbelievable weather, it's killing me, but what a way to die. Bring it on, I'll take my chances, because of living here long enough, I know it won't last. I volunteered for the Wings Over Houston Sat. and to keep a LONG story short, "It was a record crowd". I took close to 900 pictures, with a lot of them at 6 to 8 frames per second, only way to capture those rockets flying 5 to 6 hundred miles per hour. Okay car guys, I was thinking about you, I condensed the album down to just 150 pictures.

Sunday was a whole different subject and story with the 3rd. Annual Pee Wee Bowen Hot Rod Picnic at Carbide Park in La Marque, Tx. Without a doubt this was the place to be Sunday!! I can honestly say I've never seen such a big variety of Rods & Classic cars (other than at Randy Shannon's Niftee50ees) come together for the best laid back picnic with good music, good people and all your favorite foods in one place. I believe that they doubled the amount of cars that were here last year, or at least came very close to it. Just about every car had it's own profound personality which made it very hard not to take another coupe of hundred extra pictures of these unique rides!! I know a few out their won't like to hear this, "but it was soooo nice not to see a lot of show room cars for a change". Billy Bunch drove his old race car out, which really drew a crowd but also did Margaret his wife. Margaret, Billy's wife asked if I would take a couple pictures with her by the car. She really caught me by surprise when I asked her to give me a few poses. I was laughing so hard and was also asleep at the camera, that I missed a few really funny shots. Nothing bad folks, just funny as heck, thank you kid, you made my day Click Here !! Music by Pee Wee's band always keeps your feet moving either by toe tapping or dancing around on the floor. Thanks to Mike Strom (chief cook) and the entire David Strom Sr. Family for an abundance amount of BBQ Fajita Meat, and Sausages that went with all the side dishes and trimmings that everyone brought as their entry fee. Pee Wee & Jerry Ann Bowen & his Band, Strom Family, Billy & Margaret Bunch, Joe & Lydia Ratky, Butch & Patsey Jewell, Paul Sones and all the folks that brought out their fine rides, deserve a big Texas hug, and a pat on the back for making this a remarkable success!! If this doubles in cars every year, can you imagine what kind of crowd we can expect next year! I'm going to stop here folks and give you a chance to look at all the pictures. Y'all be good, and safe cruisin' wherever your plans take you this coming week. Keep an eye on that cocoanut with the cell phone, until the laws change!
