Get your sideburns and rhinestones out for a wacky ride through Darryl Starbird's creations.

He's got an eclectic collection of cars he designed and from other designers from the 60s-70s through present day. He's most notably known for his work with bubble top prototypes and (sadly) those ghastly wire wheels (in collaboration with Weld) that adorned many 70s-80s customs. Afton, Oklahoma wouldn't be more than a road sign if it weren't for this museum, which was built back in the early 90s on the family estate. Darryl has also hosted a number of great car shows over the years in the area (none that I'd been too, but another museum patron enlightened me).

Buckle up!

Okay, last one. Blown Daihatsu and the Pacer Brat are choice.

Wow...

No denying the talent, but exactly nothing in there is to my taste.

Modifying a car for speed is timeless. For style, that will always look dated.

Yup, that was about my reaction.

Definitely was expecting more hot rods and less custom cars that aged like milk.

All his cars were done with sheet metal abd lead filler, no fiberglass, so plenty of quality work indeed. His cars ran and drove, too. He certainly had a good grasp of the custom car climate in the 70s/80s, but unfortunately those styles did not age well.
