Owners of about 40 antique cars are touring in Ponca City today.

They are from Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. One car owner is from Paris, France.

They represent the 2016 Okla-Chroma Glidden Tour based in Stillwater. The Chrome Glidden Tour is an annual national tour of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America (VM CCA), sponsored this year by the TexOma Region Club of Texas.

The cars are vintages from 1935 to 1990, and are originally preserved or restored.

While in Ponca City, the group is touring the Poncan Theatre, the Marland Grand Home and the Marland Mansion, where they will also enjoy lunch.

“Visitors are welcome to view the cars at the Marland Mansion in the early afternoon,” said Gayle and Randy Dekker, Tour Directors.
