It's hot rod heaven at Oklahoma custom car museum Published: July 17, 2014

In 1954, Darryl Starbird started building custom cars in Wichita, Kan. Soon he became one of the best-known hot rod builders in the world, as well as a producer of hundreds of car shows around the country, according to CNET.

Now, he lives in northeast Oklahoma, and plays host to the National Hot Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum, a place that celebrates creative car design and modification over the years, and the people who do it best.

Opened in 1995 by Starbird, the museum is meant to be ground zero for fans of the genre to come and see both 26 of Starbird’s own vehicles, and two dozen others built by other stars in the field, CNET reports.
