Sizzlin' Summer Rod Run 2009

On Saturday July 18th, RGV OldCars hosted another FREE cruise event.  The event titled the Sizzlin' Summer Rod Run began at Elliff Motors parking lot in Harlingen, TX at about 3:30 in the afternoon.  The event brought out about 75 total cars for the run and at least 100 folks.  Participants were greeted with HOT temperatures, cold water, goodie bags, Hawaiian leis, dash plaques, and good friends.  The run took us through some back roads toward our final destination of Port Isabel where we met up with Port Isabel city representatives, and got escorted through town by police and fire department staff and vehicles.  We wound up at Pelican Station restaurant with a beautiful view of the causeway bridge and gulf waters.  More goodie bags provided by the city of Port Isabel were handed out as well as other games and prizes and of course a good meal.  Congratulations to Ed Belzer for being the grand champion, who found an inflatable pink flamingo in his goodie bag that he had to inflate and turn in to redeem his prize.  He enlisted the help of a few friends to get the bird inflated.  A very special thank you to all the volunteers that helped get this event together as well as all those that came out, bared the heat and participated with us.  High temperatures just go with the territory when you are in South Texas, so why not get out and enjoy the old cars anyhow.
