Historic Downtown Vista hosted the 29th Annual Rod Run. Thousands of visitors from all over North County roamed the streets, checking out the 384 classic and custom hot rods, street rods, muscle cars and trucks parked along Main, Indiana, Broadway, Hanes and Citrus Streets in Historic Vista. The Rod Run is Sponsored by the Vista Village Business Association, coordinated by Five Star Premier Events and this years event sponsor was PDT Detail Inc.
Thirty trophies for different classes of cars and trucks were awarded by the judges to the lucky winners. This year was exciting like the previous 28 Rod Runs, but the anticipation for next year is already starting. The 30th Annual Vista Rod Run will be on the first weekend in August 2019 and special events will take place, during a possible two day event next year, to celebrate their 30th year.
Drawings for prizes from different sponsors throughout Vista Village included massages, oil changes, Moonlight Amphitheatre tickets, and car parts. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit Vista Teen Outreach, Hunger Hurts. Over $1,000.00 was gifted to this program.
One of the special events of the Rod Run is TJ Crossmans Auto Repair Car Giveaway. This is TJ’s 4th year and the winner of the 2008 Ford Fusion is Matthew Haynes. Matthew not only has a new heart and he now has a new automobile. His life story contains many chapters for an 18 year old. Watch the VIDEO to learn his story.
