DARRYL STARBIRD NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME ! Darryl and I have known each other for many years, yet each time we sit down to do an Interview and go over some new material, Darryl always comes up with stories about subjects that I never knew existed ! That was the case at Darryl's 2012 Tulsa Rod & Custom Show #48.
I started by asking Darryl about some of the great new cars and builder's that were present, and Darryl proceeded to expand on that so that we covered: New Builder's, Old School/New School Techniques, and, in the process, Darryl gave me a new story about his "Monster Garage" appearance, plus, "The Secret of the English Wheel" !
This you will love ! And thanks again, Darryl...you are the B-E-S-T !! JK
PICTURED AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE: That's Darryl's "Galaxy X2000"...a super hand-built concept custom that you have to see in-person to believe !

BEFORE DARRYL LEFT FOR HIS APPEARANCE ON "MONSTER GARAGE", he spent some time working with an English Wheel. By the time he got to the show, he'd learned the "secret" of the English Wheel...and he shared it with me in this Interview. This is cool !!
(That's a look at a real English Wheel you see pictured there, courtesy of Industry Metal Working Pro RON COVELL...it's one of his wheels.)
