TULSA, Oklahoma -

It's hard to imagine automobiles more than 80 years old are still on the road, but more than 100 Model A Fords are on a driving tour of Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma this week.

It was like an old car parade, as 130 model A's from more than a dozen states meet this week.

Osage SkyNews6 helped us out with some video as they headed into Claremore on Route 66, on their way to the Will Rogers Memorial Museum for lunch.

"Oil history, aviation history, Will Rogers and Route 66 that's the four areas we are highlighting," said Ken Brust.

Brust and his wife are chairs of the event. He and his Model A Ford friends do love their cars.

"It was only built in four years. The model T was built for 20 years," Brust said. "Then they switched to the model A, built in ‘28, ‘29, ‘30, and ‘31."

Laura Cook, from St. Joseph, Missouri, owns a 1929 Model A Town Car; she said it rides wonderfully.

She's with her daughter, Kathy Crawford, and her grandson Kayden. They recently finished the final restoration, but Cook's husband passed away before he could take it on a tour, so they're finishing out the bucket list.

The Model A folks are in town until Friday, but on Wednesday around 11:30, they're going to spell out "Tulsa" with their cars in the parking lot in front of the Golden Driller.
