TULSA (April 2, 2019) – This year’s Tulsa Auto Show will be featuring automobiles from a variety of decades, including several from prior to World War II.

Ten cars from 1913 to 1939 will be on display. The 102nd anniversary of the Tulsa Auto Show is being held April 12-14 at the River Spirit Expo at Expo Square.

“These historic autos tend to catch people’s eyes when they visit the show,” Tom Bloomfield, general manager with Don Thornton Automotive Group, said. “Rare vehicles like these are definitely a crowd favorite.”
