Registration underway for Mission Classic Car Show

20110217_CAR-Show3MISSION — The eighth annual Mission Classic Car Show will be held Saturday, Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Mission Sports Park located in The Grove at Sharyland Plantation. Admission is free and registration is free for show participants.

Set up and sign-in for exhibitors begin at 9 a.m. and cars must be in place by noon to be eligible for $5,000 in cash and prizes, said Mindy Schroeder, show coordinator.

Over 25 prizes and awards will be given away. First, second and third place will be awarded in each category. With over $5,000 in prizes to be awarded, more cars are being attracted to the competition. Each year, the show draws classic cars from several states. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 people attended last year’s show, which exhibited over 250 old cars.

The classic cars and trucks will be divided into five categories: Classic, Hot Rod/Custom, Street Rod/Custom, Muscle Car and Specialty Class.

The show is a hometown, home grown show, not a national competition show. Vehicles will be judged on condition and presentation.

Cars must be pre-registered to be eligible for goodie bags. Pre-registration may be done by phone, fax, mail or email by Feb. 20. For phone registration call 956-279-5885 Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. only. Fax the form to 956-585-1616, or mail it to MPC, 602 Los Ebanos Road, Mission, TX 78572.
