I’m vaccinated and the numbers in Oklahoma are down right now so I ventured to Tulsa’s Expo Square for the Tulsa Auto Show. It’s the first exhibition I have been to since this pandemic began.
They had lots of snazzy cars there. Here is the new Ford Bronco II. It looks great. It’s list price is $91,000 plus or minus or roughly three and half times what my car cost. So my question why anybody who can afford this would sleep in a tent on the roof? Maybe that’s you can afford after buying it?
I was intrigued by the high performance electric cars they had on display. They were all pushed to the side for some reason. I suspect that we are going to be seeing more and more high performance electric cars. Above is a Ford Mustang, the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
The Jaguar I-Pace All Electric SUV
The Porsche Taycan
Jeep had a pre-production model of their Rubicon. Not for sale now but soon!!!
Here’s is a Rubicon with a Hemi Engine in it. Probably about the same cost as the Ford Bronco II.
They had some classic cars as well. I love this thing. I don’t want to own it, I just want to look at it.
And this gangster car.
My favorite was the General Motors Futurliner. GM had a caravan of ten of these that starting in the 30’s would go from town to town and set up shows of how wonderful the future was going to be. They quit doing it in the mid 50’s because people could see what the future was going to be by watching their televisions.
So the Futurliners were sold. Oral Roberts bought one to use as a traveling church in South America.
I love them.
So anyway, that’s the report from the Tulsa Auto Show. My only parting comment is that they promised they would enforce masking and spacing but they didn’t. You might want to keep that in mind if you want to see any other events at Expo Square. I wore my mask and kept my distance.
