Darryl Starbird is selling his auto show

WICHITA — Darryl Starbird’s more than half-century old car show is getting new owners.

Five partners, including businessman Tom Devlin, are purchasing the show and are holding a news conference Wednesday to announce changes for the new Starbird-Devlin Rod & Customs Charities Car Show.

The new owners are doing business as Cars for Charities Co. and on Wednesday will announce charities that will receive proceeds from future shows.

Starbird, who is close to 80, will have some announcements of his own at the afternoon news conference, which is at Devlin Rod & Customs.

The first show of the newly named Starbird-Devlin Rod & Customs Charities Car Show is scheduled for Jan. 20-22 at Century II.
