Sinclair Dinosaurs

The Sinclair dinosaur has been removed from its area. I asked locals and they said that the dino had been removed for quite some time and that everyone in town was very sad to see it gone.

Sinclair Dinosaurs

Came upon Sinclair Dinos in Ada, Pauls Valley, and Ardmore, OK. He's a little guy, maybe 5-ft. to the top of his head. The former owner of the Ardmore Sinclair station (recently deceased) did a lot of sewing and she made several costumes for her Dino. The current station owners have all the costumes and change them with the seasons and holidays.
