Outsiders Movie Gas Station in Sperry, OK

In an effort to continue honoring and preserving Oklahoma's rich Pop Culture history, we
are going to refurbish the DX Gas Station in Sperry, Oklahoma, used in the 1983 Francis
Coppola film, The Outsiders, based on the best selling novel by S. E. Hinton.
The scene at the DX Station featured C. Thomas Howell as Ponyboy Curtis, Ralph
Macchio as Johnny Cade, Matt Dillon as Dallas Winston, Rob Lowe as Sodapop Curtis,
and Tom Cruise as Steve Randle.
Our goal, with your help, is to recreate the DX Station to appear as it did in the movie,
which takes place in 1965. Therefore, we need to purchase and install props such as a two
sided DX sign, gas pumps, Anco windshield wiper display, a 1951 Chevy Styleline
Deluxe vehicle, a phone booth, and other DX related items.
The building will need paint, new electrical wiring, concrete work, and a security system.
We hope the cities of Sperry and Tulsa, along with the State of Oklahoma, will enjoy new
found tourism, and fans of S. E. Hinton and The Outsiders will have another destination
to look forward to seeing on their Outsiders Filming Locations Tour.
