National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame

55251 Oklahoma 85A, Afton, Oklahoma 74331 USA

“The cars you love from the 50s”

The National Rod & Custom Car Hall of Fame Museum is located on Highway 85A an hour northeast of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The 40,000 Sq. Ft. facility houses over 50 custom built exotic vehicles by world renowned custom car builder and designer Darryl Starbird as well as many other famous hot rod and custom car builders. Every square inch of the wall and space is full of photos and memorabilia of famous custom built vehicles including street rods, nostalgic custom cars, vans, pickups, sports cars and experimental bubble topped concept looking vehicles of the future. Many of the vehicles priceless in value having a historic significance as well as demonstrating thousands of hours of labor and ingenuity of design and workmanship. Being recognized as the first and only National Hall of Fame honoring the individuals that have created thousands of these types of vehicles since the early fifties. The hall of Fame inducted thirteen builders (listed below) at a celebration banquet ceremony held August 6, 1995, each year in June an Anniversary Celebration is held inducting two more custom & rod builders. A history in the form of thousands of photos and miscellaneous memorabilia is on display capturing the work of each of these icons in the custom car and street rod world. Actual original creations in full size cars will also be displayed on a rotating basis of the famous builders. this is not your usual antique classic car car museum so prevalent throughout the country but a unique display of one of a kind custom creations. Works of art in their own right as well as visual illustrations of culture development that started in the '50's and has influenced our society, Detroit car designs and our very way of living ever since. The American Graffiti classic movie documents these trends for prosperity and Tom Wolfe the celebrated American author put the era and feeling into words in his book the Kandy Kolored Tangerine Flake Streamline Baby. I guess Toad in American Graffiti said it all when he was given the '58 Chevy custom car by his friend while he was away at college when he said, "This is better that Darryl Starbird's superfleck moonbird". Come in and see what Toad was referring to and relive this American feeling of an era.

It's a little out of the way to get there, but you might plan on staying at the nearby Shangri-La Resort on the lake. This is a beautiful area if you're willing to make the trip. We stopped by when Darryl Starbird was at a car show, but his wife covered all the bases and welcomed us in. If you're a car enthusiast this is your place...the home base for the Moonbird. Wow...worth the trip!
