Starbird’s National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum

The feature car this year will be “Galaxy X2000” built by Darryl Starbird. It is a completely hand built all metal car with a bubble top. Darryl has built cars consecutively for the past 55 years but this is a new look for his signature bubble tops.

This year for the first time in 17 years we have four cars featured and the fourth is from Albuquerque, NM a 1940 Mercury by world renowned pinstriping artist Brian Everett, here on display at the museum for a limited time.The Museum is located on the shores of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokee (55251 E Highway 85A 60 miles northeast of Tulsa) and holds over 50 cars all one of a kind, hand built by the icons in the custom world, such as Barris, Bailon, Winfield, Titus, Roth, Hines and includes 25 of Starbird’s own collection built over the past 55 years.
