FOR DARRYL AND THE STARBIRDS', Rods & Customs are a "Family Affair" !
In this Exclusive One-On-One Interview done at his Oklahoma home, for the first time Darryl and I discuss his love of the Heartland of America, his family, and how all of his kids grew up around his garage & workshop and "grew into" the business.
ALSO, as a proud grandfather, Darryl explains how his grandson Brice Bledsoe (at the tender age of 17) put together Darryl's autobiographical Coffee Table book "The Bubble Top King".
DARRYL STARBIRD, his wonderful wife Donna, their children: Debbie, Cliff, Christie, and ,Rick, Plus, Dakota, Brice, and all of their Grandchildren, are deeply involved in the Rod & Custom Industry.
I've known the Starbird Family for many years, and they are some of the nicest, most "genuine" folks that you'll ever come in contact with. They're a real credit to the Industry/Hobby, and I'm proud to have them as friends. JK
