Mission Market Square Classic Car Show -- Mission, TX

 

March 5,  2005

 

Months of preparation and planning went into getting ready for the 2005 Annual Mission Market Square Classic Car Show.  Last year was the first year for this event and very little time was given to plan and prepare for it then, but a lot was learned and a lot of the bugs were worked out.  Everything was a go and there were commitments from about 250 who pre-registered this year that they would be there for the event with their classic car.  The only problem :  THE WEATHER .  It was never a definite answer from local weather forecasters, but simply a chance of possible showers that might threaten to come down on the day of the event.  The last words were that it should be clear and so the decision was made to go ahead and host the event as planned.  The Saturday started out pretty nice but as cars began to fill in the parking area for the event, sure enough, the sky started sprinkling.  A few drops, but not so bad, but the sky stayed overcast and dreary, but it wasn't going to stop the old car lovers from gathering together and enjoying themselves and the other cars.  The day actually turned very nice and the overcast sky helped to keep the temperature cool and nice.  The event was once again FREE to enter for both car owners registering their cars and for spectators to stop by and look at them.  There was over $2,000 in prize money given to car owners for winning various classes as well as trophies and other prizes.  Food and drink vendors as well as others selling different kinds of goods were on hand for those who wished to do a little shopping.  Oldies music played throughout the day to add to the retro ambience.  RGV OldCars hosted a coloring contest for the kids.  ( A special thank you to Linda Olsen, Cindy Olsen, and Linda Soto for holding down the fort at the contest. )  Congratulations to Delbert Killinger Jr. for being the winner in age group 10-12 and to all the other winners and participants in the coloring contest.  The event was attended by well over 200 old cars despite the rain showers and threat of more sprinkles throughout the day.  The event really was a great success and everyone we talked with loved the event and is looking forward to next year.  We are looking forward to clearer weather.  =)  The event was cut a little short and the awards presentations had to get hurried up a little as the showers finally did come a little before the planned end of the show and started raining a little harder.  All in all it was a great day of old cars and fellowship and we hope to see you all there next year.  In case you missed the event of if you would like a nice keepsake of the event, we do have available a DVD video of the event as well as a digital photo CD.  The DVD and CD contain images of nearly all of the cars that were present at the event.  There may have been a few that slipped in later and missed being on but is a pretty complete collection of those present.  The DVD and CD are available for sale on our Merchandise page and are $10 each or $15 for both.  Be sure to get your copies today.
