The fourth Annual Tulsa Art Car Weekend is revving up. It's sponsored by the Living Arts of Tulsa, whose mission is to stimulate creative thinking in Green Country.

"I'm only hoping that next year maybe I can add different elements to it. Who knows? Just make it a real eye catcher," said art car designer Wes Jackson.

"We built a special frame and put a big airplane engine on it. We put a big propeller on it. We start the airplane engine up and it actually blows us down the street," said Dave and Irene Major.

Living Arts hopes the event will encourage more people to join the Tulsa Art Car Club.

So if you see a big phone driving around Tulsa, don't worry its all part of Art Car weekend 2008.

 There are no rules when it comes to designing an Art Car. And sometimes it seems no real theme.

"This car gets very good miles. It gets nine cents a minute and miles of smiles," said Hunter Mann.
