Above are the first outdoor car show pictures that I ever took. They were all taken in 1972 at the Northline Mall in Houston and the Mall is still there after those 40+ years. Early Irons was the host club.
Niftee 50ees Lover's Lane Cruise In. Great weather, great turnout, you couldn't have asked for anything more. Hopefully "El Nino" will cut us some slack this year.
No matter how many times I attend the Niftee 50ees Saturday Night Cruise In, I'm always amazed at it's attraction to rarely seen vehicles like these above. I get a smile on my face every time I see them.
It's hard to gauge sometimes just how long I've been doing this until a car like this pops up. The images above were taken a few years ago at the Spring Fling Car Show in Rosenberg just south of Houston. Check out my "first ever images" posted on top of the page and look at the last image (lower, right). Yes it's the same vehicle taken back in 1972. Other than a few details, not much has changed in forty years. If you look in the background in that same image, you'll see my brand new (1972) "Datsun" pickup which I eventually installed Goodyear big and littles on American wheels (right).
