Once again, Brizio Street Rods had a number of new projects on display in Pomona. Getting six hot rods 400 miles south is no easy task. However, Ricky is the man when it comes to hauling. This is possibly the only time you will see these cars in a trailer. In April, at least four of these cars will be on the road to Texas, along with a number of friends and customers. All owners walked away with hardware.
2014 ROY BRIZIO STREET RODS SHOP PARTY
On Saturday, May 10th, Brizio’s held their open house for the 29th year in a row. We were also celebrating our 37th year in business. All day and into the evening we were catching up with old friends and hopefully made some new friends. Check out the following pictures from the night before as we prepared the shop for the show. There are always plenty of projects to look at, so if you’re in the area, please stop by.
At the 2013 CALIFORNIA HOT ROD REUNION, Roy was presented with the NHRA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Roy has been dedicated to the sport of hot Rodding almost all his life, where he started out working at his dad’s speed shop as a teen. At twenty he opened Roy Brizio Street Rods where he and his crew have turned out hundreds of hot rods over the last thirty five years. While many have won countless awards, including two America’s Most Beautiful Roadster awards, Roy’s focus has always been about building cars that can be driven thousands of miles a year. While the quality of builds speaks for themselves, Roy is extremely proud of the fact that most of his customers come back as lifelong friends.
The 27th Annual West Coast Nationals were held in Pleasanton CA over the last weekend in Aug. During the week of the event, The Goodguys puts on tours to various shops around the Bay Area. This year they stopped by Brizio’s to catch up on our latest projects. The visitors were treated to lunch and the run of the shop. Roy’s employees answered questions and gave the inside scoop on a number of projects. We’re not sure how many people toured the shop, but we went thru 300 hotdogs and drinks. Feel free to stop by anytime you are in the area.
Every three years Victoria BC hosts DEUCE DAYS, a celebration of, but not limited to 1932 vehicles. Brizio Street Rods was the starting point for 15 of those cars heading north. Roy’s claim to fame is building cars that can be driven almost anywhere. Case in point, most of the cars pictured were built at Brizio’s. You can add a number of others as they hook up with those leaving from other parts of the Bay Area. The trip will make stops in Redding CA and Portland OR before they get to Canada
