|Marvin, Karen and the Petty Cruisers
Marvin and Karen Petty brought a group of their classic car friends to Perkins January 7. They made a stop
for lunch at Jalopy’s Drive In and then drove over to the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza to tour the 1957 three bay gasoline
station restored by the Cimarron Starlite Cruisers.
Marvin and friends cruise to an Oklahoma destination every month. As
you can see the interests and type of vehicles vary a great a deal with this group of enthusiasts. The Petty Cruiser’s vehicles range from a 1936 Dodge Brother’s coupe, Ferrari Spider, Corvettes
from 1963 to present, a large variety of Mopars from the sixties to present, several different models of Chevrolets from the
50’s to the 60’s, Grand Prix and GTO Pontiacs a wild Ford pickup with dual super chargers!
Marvin and Karen have sponsored many events and donated the
proceeds to the Victory Junction, which was built in honor of Adam Petty and provides life changing experiences for kids with
chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses.
The Victory Junction has touched the lives of more than 10,000
children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses and their families. Through events, specialized programs, sponsorships,
volunteer hours and in-kind support, Victory Junction partners truly make a difference in the lives of children. Victory Junction
