Though there was not a large number that turned out for

Sonic's 50th Birthday Party, we still had a fun time out with

the cars and friends.

 

50th Anniversary of Sonic -- Weslaco


The attendance for this outing was bleak, but the fun and games were plenty.  This year, 2003, Sonic restaurants are nationally celebrating their 50th anniversary of being in business.  Local owner/ manager of Sonic Drive-In of Weslaco, Adan,  invited the community and old car lovers to bring out their classic rides and take part in the celebration on Saturday, May 17, 2003.

 

         

 

I truly have to commend Adan and his staff for the hard work and great effort they went to for this celebration.  As I pulled up, I was disappointed to see that there were so few cars there.  I had expected more people would have turned out.  In total I believe we had 8 to 10 old cars there.  All Chevrolet by the way, with the exception of a 1953 Ford and a T-bucket that rolled in late. 

 

As we arrived, we were greeted with the car hops out and about all dressed in 50's costumes, poodle skirts and all.  We had 50's music playing and I was promptly greeted by Adan with a bright smile and warm hand shake and an immediate thanks for coming to the party.  He quickly handed me a commemorative Sonic keychain and a couple of coupons for free meals and let me know that they were there to take care of us and whatever we wanted from the menu to just let them know and they would give it to us.

 

               

   

After chatting with some of the other old car guys and gals and snapping a few photos of the cars, Adan called us all over to the seating area by the play yard and volley ball court for some fun and games.  He had several prizes he offered out to us all and had trivia questions and games for us as well.  We got a chance to learn some history on the Sonic Drive-Ins and various stores they now have.

 

They also had a special cake made for the occasion for us all, which even had a '57 Chevrolet toy on it for decoration and a pinata for the kids.  Again I really want to stress how impressed I and others were that attended in the great effort that Adan and his crew set forth for us.  We all had a good time, just wished that more of you could have joined us.  Thanks again Adan.
