We had a cruise event to the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas!

In addition to our very own annual Classic Car Stampede, we do get our cars out into the great wide open as much as possible. Cruisin here and there. We'll post some pics of some of our other outings here for you to enjoy.
Yes you CAN get into the Holiday spirit with your car.
One of our club members, Larry Foltz and his 57 Chevy were filmed in an episode of “The Christmas Light Fight” television show airing this December on ABC.
Here’s some info in case you’d want to tune in.
The Great Christmas Light Fight has posted their program schedule for Dec. of 2017:
First off if you want to follow up and confirm information you can Google "THE CHRISTMAS LIGHT FIGHT" episode 5 and you will find the following information:
The entire program & contest consists of 3 (three) separate programs where in they show the top contestants in the country wide contest. I know there contestants in New York and other parts of U.S.
1. The first program will be aired on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017 and it will start at 8PM EST, 7pm our time I think on ABC Local channel 13.
2. The second program will be shows on Monday Dec. 10, 2017 again at 7PM our time I think on Channel 13.
3. The final program will be shown on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, again at 7PM our time on channel 13. This will be the program where myself and my car will appear. It will appear near the end of the program and used during the trophy presentation portion of the final episode. I know that during the taping I was involved in, the Master of Ceremony was interviewed about all the contestants and he commented on all the contestants and finally makes his decision as to the winning display. I am not sure where all this will fit into the program but again I think it will appear near the end of the final airing.
Again you can follow up on the web site for confirmation of dates of times and I am sure you could google channel 13 and go to their schedule for December on Monday nights and confirm also.
Way back in 2013 (and a few times since)
We were graciously invited to cruise over to Brookshire
to visit John Hovas’ Hemi Hideout, an incredible private collection of Mopars and vintage signs housed in a building you just have to see to believe.
To say that John has a wooden barn with some used cars in it would be the understatement of the century.
This is an incredible collection of some of Mopar’s absolute finest musclecars and intriguing signs and memorabilia from all over the country, that's a must see.
Our club would like to extend a very big “Thank You!” to John for sharing his passion with us,
and for himself, artist Bill Seitz, and the rest of his team for making it so enjoyable to look at a bunch of old cars and vintage signs.
We’re always looking forward to our next visit…it’s absolutely impossible to see everything in just one trip.
