A lifelong car collector, restorer and enthusiast, Daryle discovered his love of cars at the age of 10 helping his dad restore a classic Corvette Stingray. At the age of 20, he founded Fastech Autosport, a car customizing and auto accessories business in Cherry Hill, NJ. In 1990, He launched Fantasy Autos, vintage-car rental agency that provided classic, luxury and antique cars for special events, TV commercials and films. His cars have appeared in commercials and films for such brand names as AC-Delco, McDonald’s, Universal Studios and MTV. Uncovering a need for custom and modified car owners to show their vehicles, he created the “Fastech Custom Car Showdown”, an annual car and truck show benefiting local charities.
The success of the car show attracted the interest of the Happenings TV Network and Daryle was invited to host and produce “Cruisin’ TV” on the Comcast Network. The award winning show focused on interviewing car owners about their cars and restorations. Over the last 27 years, Daryle has produced, judged and consulted at hundreds of cars shows and currently operates collector car consultancy network Fastech with his sons Darien & Dean and daughter Deanna providing car locator, valuation and restoration services.
