Classic Cruise News!
News from the North Side
Niftee 50ees Classic Drive In
By: Randy Shannon
The age old question when it comes to ..do we.. or do we not have the show?
Last Saturday night Mother Nature teased us for a bit, then waited for a few cars to show up and then decided to shower us with blessings above.
This time there was no let up and time to pack up was at hand in the rain.
So..the show again was awarded to the rain makers who took all honors as we scurry picking up our belongings.
We will try for this coming weekend as we head down the final stretch of our season with six weeks remaining.
Final show at Niftee 50ees is Saturday night, November 14, 2009.
The Classic Mustang Roundup will be re-scheduled for this coming weekend.
We have received several inquiries and phone calls in reference to our 6th Annual "Monster Classic Car Show" at Kroger's.
The show is scheduled for Halloween Night, Saturday, October 31.
We hope all will come enjoy as this is one of our best FUN shows of the season!
The parking lot will be totally reserved for Classic Cars Only for this rather large event as we will try and find enough parking for everyone.

SPACE CITY CRUISERS NEWS LETTER
By: Bob Wright
Oct. 05 2009
The rains held off for all the car shows Saturday but Sunday was a different story. I'm a sucker for car shows that are put on for a good cause and the benefit for Kenneth Strine was my choice for this weekend over eight other car shows in our area. I sent the pictures out with a little write up Saturday evening and now I have a follow up on this since Saturday. I was informed by Ken's wife Charlene Strine that they have a web site for those of you that would like to keep abreast of how Ken is doing on his road to complete recovery. Our prayers are with you buddy!

From 4pm Saturday until about 3pm Sunday was nothing but rain the entire time!! The weather cleared up at 3pm just in time for me to make the Courtney Benefit at Clear Lake Bowling Lanes with my old beat up Corvette for their 50's theme. It was my One Car Show for one special little girl. Elvis was the special attraction inside for all the family's and kids and he did come outside for a few photos with the car and Courtney!!

Just got off the phone with Robin French, the Hooters and I assume that all the other Cruise Nights were a wash out on Saturday evening. So, no input from Fred Anthony or Rob Lamy!!
I want to thank David Strom Sr. for his write up and pictures of the Good Guys Show in Ft. Worth, Texas, job well done. Also have a plug for his upcoming Car show, my good friend Jim Meader with the awesome 1972 SS 502 Orange El Camino. He says you won't be disappointed if you come to his show in Pattison, Tx. Well we will find out, God willing and the creaks don't rise I'll try to make this show. The batteries on my camera will be at full charge, and has an anti break system built into the camera for those think they can BREAK IT!! Just give me a smile, I'll do the rest in my photo shop. LOL, I'm not going to bend your ear anymore (I'll bet I left something out), lets hope for some better weather for the weekend, and y'all have a safe cruise wherever you decide to go!!!

Pictures & Good Guys Report From David Strom Sr.
Good morning Bob. We had a safe and almost trouble free trip to Good Guys in Ft Worth at the Texas Motor Speedway this past weekend. David Sr, David Jr, Jacob Strom, Kenneth Strom Sr, Mike Strom, Neal Padgett, and Chris Gillis met at my shop about 4:30 Friday morning. The plan was to leave NLT than 5:00 am. I drove the '55 Nomad and Jr drove the '62 Impala. We trailered Ken's '56 and Brian Ussery's '56 Nomad. (no overdrive in these two). We did not leave the shop until after 5:30 due to the torrential downpour that hit before 5:00.
I first "issue" hit us before we ever made it to I45! Jr ran over something on FM646 and knocked the shift linkage off of the transmission in the '62! (I know, don't say anything about how low it is,Don't want to hear it!) After a few minutes on the jack Mike had back in service and we pulled out (again) at about 6:17am.
Traffic through Houston was not too bad believe it or not. We ventured up I45 to the new BUC-EES at Madisonvlle. Wow! What a store, These guys got it figured out!
We arrived at our hotel,got unloaded, checked in, and grabbed some lunch. Made it over to the host hotel for our credentials and drove across the street to the event. Wow-what an event! There were lots of cars and little room. We idled around and squeezed into some spots. We have been to this event a few times and I think this is the most cars that I have seen there on a Friday afternoon. We looked and looked and admired until the 5:pm closing time., Made it back to the hotel for some rest and fresh cooked Fajita's (Thanks Mike and Neal) and a little liquid refreshments). The Fraziers from Houston joined us. We made some new friends around the hotel while admiring the other cars on the lot.
Next morning the plan was to leave the hotel by 5:30 to go get in line at the track so that we could get a choice parking/viewing spot. I think we left about 5:40 for the 10 minute drive..........there must have been 400 cars in line already! Wow! a little after 6:00 we were ushered in and we were fortunate to get our favorite spot on the main road on the right driving in! As Chris parked the '56 Nomad he sprouted a power steering leak. After it cooled and the sun came up (needed light to work) we discovered a crack on the hard line. Later that morning we ventured over to the Miller Welding booth and the staff there allowed Chris to use a machine to weld up the crack. Needless to say I think those Miller guys were impressed with Chris' skills. I know that I am!
As the day went on the clouds rolled in. A few times in the afternoon we got some heavy sprinkles and brief showers. Maybe just enough to roll the windows up. We stayed until 5:00 and watched as all rolled out. I would have to say the car and spectator count had to be the best that I have seen at this event. Lots of NEW stuff to see! And for the Rat Rod fans they just get better and better. As far as the swap meet I would have to say that it has grown substantially as well.
The rain came and came so we decided to load our cars and be ready fro the trip home on Sunday. We discovered a bad tire on one of the trailers so we changed that as well.. Sunday morning, rain, rain and more rain. We had our breakfast and headed South a little before 8:00 AM. The trip home was long and tiring with the rain. Jr had no wipers, (yeah Rain-X!) but we made it fine. We had a fairly short "dry run" between Madisonville and Huntsville but other than that it rained the whole way. (another great rest stop at Buc-ees!) We arrived at my shop around 1:30 and unloaded. Another FUN car event! You should'a joined us!

It is held at the old Royal ECC campus where we have lots of room, shade, grass and playground equipment for the kids. We have 2 events with Clowns for the kids starting @ 10:30 so shine them up and bring them along. We also have the best car show food, a DJ with some old Rock &Roll tunes, really nice raffle and door prize items, a 50/50 pot benefiting Kids Unlimited (Kids w/Cancer)and all types of vendors. Bill Seitz did the art for our T-Shirts again this year and they are great. We have custom, one of a kind chrome and powder coated class trophies and large loving cups for the best of awards. There will be 25 classes this year with 3 awards in each class along with many other awards.

SPECIAL THANKS FROM NORTH HOUSTON KREWZERS'
Results of the
North Houston Krewzers’ Car Show
Kenneth Strine and Family
October 3, 2009
North Houston Krewzers’ Car Club would like to thank you for your support of our Fall Fandango Show benefiting Kenneth Strine and Family. Despite the threat of rain, you came out to give your support to Kenneth and his family. Kenneth is a strong survivor with a will to overcome whatever life throws his way. It was a thrill for everyone to see Ken drive his 1967 Camaro Race Car into the show area. Ken participated by picking a car to be given the Ken’s Choice award. Of course, he picked a great looking Camaro belonging to Frank Tarbert. Ken has made amazing progress but he still has a long road to full recovery, so keep him and the family in your prayers.
Officially, there were 60 cars that registered plus 13 North Houston Krewzers’ club member cars and some cars that came in too late to register. Thanks to the generosity of everyone, we were able to raise enough money from Sponsors, Registrations, Donations, 50/50 Jar, and the silent Auction to net $5,000.00 for donation to Kenneth and his family. Fuddruckers was kind enough to allow us to host this event in their parking lot and a percentage of the proceeds from their sales on Saturday, Oct 3rd is included in the donation to the Strine family.
On behalf of the North Houston Krewzers Car Club members, we thank each and everyone for your support of this successful benefit.
