Rio Grande Valley Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America --

Old Car Gathering and BBQ at Lonesome Dove -- Mission

 

February 21,  2004

        

        

The Rio Grande Valley Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America (RGV-AACA) held its annual get together and BBQ again this year at the Lonesome Dove Cafe north of Mission.  Though the weather was questionable on the original scheduled date, the event was pushed back for the following weekend and  the weather did hold out beautifully.  Members of the club range from a vast array of people with various interests in old and antique vehicles.  You do not even need to be an owner of an old car to join in the club and its activities, you simply have to have an interest in old cars.  That is vehicles that are 25 years old or older.  Through membership with the club, you are also a member of the National AACA which remains to be the largest and most widely recognized club for antique car enthusiasts throughout the world.  Membership entitles you to a yearly subscription to AACA's magazine publication with news and articles about various old car topics, as well as the local newsletter mailed to you to stay informed on local club events and happenings. 

           

     

The get together at Lonesome Dove was not an exclusive, club only event, but rather was open to all as they invited the public to come out and join them for this gathering and time of fellowship with other old car buffs.  The ownership/staff at Lonesome Dove provided a BBQ plate for all who drove their old car out for the event and sold plates to other participants for only $3.  What a bargain.  Somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 old cars were brought out for this event.  And from the reports I have been given everyone seemed to enjoy their time looking at each others cars, swapping stories, and enjoying some good BBQ.
