Nearly 30 cars on a Model T tour from Bartlesville visited Ponca City Thursday, arriving at the Pioneer Woman Museum about 10:45 a.m.

The drivers and passengers are members of car clubs in several different towns and states, said tour coordinator Mary Jones of Tulsa.

Most of the visitors were happy to see the museum for its exhibits, as well as a stretching stop.

“ On a Model T you bounce and bounce,” Jones said.

The group left Bartlesville early Thursday, right after daylight, she said. The Ponca City tour was the first and longest leg of a three-day tour.

Jones said she schedules the three-day tours once a year.

The vistors’ next stop was set for the Marland Mansion, followed by lunch at Danny’s BBQ Head Quarters and a visit to Marland’s Grand Home. They will return to Bartlesville and on Friday will travel 82 miles to Coffeyville.

“ It will be a breeze,” Jones said.

On Saturday, the outing will be to Woolaroc, which is only a 56 mile trip.

Jones said she has planned the outings for 15 year.
