Mission Classic Car Show 2009

Once again, the city of Mission, TX hosted their annual Classic Car Show, this being the 6th year for the event and again this event is growing bigger and bigger.  The event is open to cars and trucks only from 1976 or older.  The date for the show was set a week earlier this year and held on February 28th.  Something else came along this year making this event a different than the past events, the weather !!  The forecast for the day was that perhaps early in the morning there would be a front that would come through bringing a little rain and then would clear out and would have a clear day with just some high winds, well the day started nice enough and well the front didn't hit in the early morning, rather a good number of folks started showing up bright and early in the morning to bring their cars out and get them set for the show, then sure enough the front did show up and hit hard and fast.  There were tremendous winds and rains and well the temp was a bit cold for most southern Texas blooded folks.  A good number of the car folks hit the road to head for shelter, but there were plenty of us that stuck it out.  Good thing was the rain and such only lasted about an hour, the weather cleared up and we had a beautiful day for a car show.   A good number of cars continued to show up so there was well over 300 cars in attendance for the show for the rest of the event.  We wonder if the weather had cooperated throughout the day and all the old cars that had been there would have stayed and all else would have shown up and weren't scared off by the rain, we may have had about 600 or more cars...will have to wait for next year to find out.
