2016 Tulsa Leake Car Auction

Friday is my day off, Heather had to teach an exercise class, and Logan is out of school so I dragged him to the Fairgrounds to the Leake Car Auction.

Lots and lots of cars there. I’m partial to red cars, lIke this Mustang above.

Or the Porsche being cleaned up. It is hard to be a Porsche for styling.

I also love the big American cars of the 1950’s like this 1954 Crestline Victoria. I love all the chrome, that beautiful blue color, and the swoopy curves.

I don’t mean I ever want to own one I just like looking at them.

I like the more homely but distinctive cars also such Trifun quarter ton truck. The three wheels are a gas.

And the tilting bed. They said only 300 miles since new but the seats and everything else in the cab was very worn. It was a very hard 300 miles.

And who doesn’t love a land cruiser. These are classic vehicles.¬†

How about an air boat for hunting alligators?

I love the camo but don’t you know that thing is loud.

By far my favorite of the show was this heavily modified1967 Land Rover

It had the best and most puzzling hood ornament.

It looks like it could be chasing down lions and elephants in Africa.

I like the “scouting seats” up above. Scouting seats my butt, I bet rich Texans sat up there and shot at critters. If somebody wants to buy it for me I would sit up there and shoot critters also, with my camera.
