OKC Auto Show 101st Anniversary – So much to see. So much to do.


Public Events Schedule

Friday, March 9 10am-9pm

  • Re-creation of the 1950’s Era OKC Auto Shows
    • Featuring the 1953 General Motors Futurliner #10 – Futurliner #10 (Watch Video about it HERE) was one of 12 large dual-front wheeled display vehicles that crisscrossed the country in the early 1950’s, part of a General Motors promotion called the Parade of Progress.  The GM Parade of Progress and its crew of about 60 young men carried futuristic and inspirational exhibits to millions of people across North America from 1936 through 1956. The parade of Futurliners accompanied by GM’s newest cars for sale would pull into small towns just like the circus once did, set up at the fairgrounds or a park. This 1953 Futurliner, with 16-foot display doors on either side, was a perfect platform for static exhibits and live demonstrations of emerging technology of the future.  Auto show attendees can sit in the driver’s seat (more details coming.)
