The Cars for Charities Rod & Custom Car Show has become a “A Wichita Tradition Since 1957”! The show first started in 1957 by car builder Darryl Starbird. In 2011, the show was purchased by a new local ownership group, Cars for Charities Co. a 501(c)(3) organization and turned the car show into a charity event.
The 12-member board for Cars for Charities Co. voted unanimously to change the name of the show this year to the Cars for Charities Rod & Custom Car Show. “As a board, after celebrating the Starbird-Devlin name with our 60th anniversary event, we felt it was the perfect time to change our name to more accurately reflect who we are and what our mission is with the show” comments Tim Devlin. “We purchased this show and continue to run it because of our commitment to serve this community. We feel changing the name to Cars for Charities allows us to tell our story and hopefully encourage even more people to come out and support not only our show but our two great local charities.”
2018 will be the 61st consecutive year this show has been held in Wichita!

Celebrating their 60th year in 2017, the annual Starbird-Devlin Rod & Customs Charities Car Show, had another banner year for attendance and fundraising. In 2017 the show raised $100,000 for their two local charities.
