2019 Oklahoma Historical Society Gala


We had someone from the Oklahoma Historical Society reach out, and they are hoping to have a parking lot full of cars from the 1960s for their annual gala and fundraiser. Tickets are $75 BUT you get free admission and a free drink if you bring a car from the 1960s.

From the organizer:
“Join the Oklahoma Historical Society for an immersive evening in the 1960s on Friday, October 18, at the Oklahoma History Center. Oklahoma City radio icon Ronnie Kaye will be our DJ emcee for a night of music, dancing and live entertainment that will take guests back in time. The event will also include heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks from the time period, a dress-up station, a photo booth, vignettes, a raffle, cash bar, and lots of time for socializing.”

2019 Silver Summit – Headed Home

One might think that after driving to Colorado, doing 900 miles on the curvy roads, and driving the interstate for a couple hours that all the car issues would have been shaken out. You would be mistaken. The MGB ate a wheel bearing and required a tow near Clayton, NM. On the plus side, we ate a wonderful lunch at the Hotel Eklund and got a tour from one of the owners.

The stop wouldn’t have been a huge deal except it meant we landed in Oklahoma as some pretty horrendous weather rolled in. We just managed to limp home at night in blinding rain, flooding roads, high winds and thunderstorms. Probably not our brightest decision, but everyone made it, and nobody died.
