You know when you get a new car and before the day you got it you hardly ever saw one. Then from that day on they're everywhere?"Rumble Fish" is set and filmed here in Tulsa too, btw. That and "The Outsiders," (also by Coppola) both based on teenage novels by the local author S.E. Hinton. The Outsiders house has become some kind of museum now, and the great Jack White (of White Stripes etc) who for some reason loves Tulsa and spends time here quite often, is somehow involved with it.
That's how I feel since I read you were from Tulsa.
