I drove out to Brizio Street Rods (south San Fransisco) in my roadster, for his annual open house. It was great! Cool cars, nice people, and free food. Roy knows hot rods and he’s really good to the people in our hobby.
The black roadster named “my roadster” is my car. The purple ‘32 with flames belongs to Roy’s father (Rodfather), that car had 97,000 miles on it! The Willys that is under construction belongs to the baseball great Reggie Jackson of the New York Yankees. Roy also built the red ‘32 with fenders for Rod & Custom Magazine’s 50th Anniversary. The baby blue ‘32 was built for the musician Eric Clapton. I didn’t get a picture, but “GoodGuy” Gary Meadors drove by in his yellow track roadster. However, he was way late and I don’t know if he ever got parking.
The Slingshot Dragster (mounted on the wall) is the Champion Speed Shop Rail. It beat Big Daddy Don Garlits when Big Daddy came to the west coast during the ‘60’s. There’s a picture on the wall, below the dragster, of the actual race and defeat of Big Daddy.
Other than that the place was packed with nice people and cool cars. The shop was very clean and organized. Roy Brizio took care of everybody, he really is a great guy!!! Brian Basquez, Sacramento, CA!!!
