Since the 2011 Grand National Roadster Show, we have been very busy here at Brizio Street Rods. With some of the projects in progress and a couple starting new, the goal was to finish seven new entries for the 63rd Annual GNRS. As you can see from the photos, the variety is wide spread. While all seven placed very well in their classes, there was one SPECIAL award that was given to Eric Clapton’s 1932 four door Vicky, the Al Slonaker Award.
Roy Brizio Street Rods is finishing the year with a bang. The Grand National Roadster Show is coming in January, and we are finishing up seven new cars for the show. Each year we burn the midnight oil to make sure our customers can take part in the most prestigious hot rod and custom show in the land. This year we have quite a selection of vehicles. Take a look at the list of cars.
John Mumford and Roy Brizio Bonneville 2009
In August, John Mumford and Roy visited the salt flats for the second time. Their goal was to up their license to 175 MPH. They both achieved their goal by eclipsing 177 MPH. And they did it with no mishaps, like the door opening at 160 MPH as it did on Roy last year. John’s coupe ran great. There was an interested spectator in their pits, famed funny car driver Ron Capps. As you can tell from the pictures, he looks right at home behind the wheel, and judging from the look in his eyes, you will see his name again at Bonneville
Why does Roy Brizio Hot Rods attract celebrity customers? More than likely, the same qualities attract all of Brizio's customer: expert craftsmanship, a true hot rod vision, and a commitment to customer satisfaction. "We build solid, reliable hot rods for people who like to drive their cars," Brizio explains. "We're not interested in building museum pieces that some collector just wants to own and look at. We build 'real' hot rods. The vast majority of our customers are regular enthusiasts who just love hot rods and now have the resources to have one built for them."
For well over 20 years, famed Bay Area street rod builder Roy Brizio has been busy building some of the most uniquely styled, and arguable most beautiful, hot rods, street rods, and classics of all sorts. In fact, the word “unique” may just be one of best ways to describe a Brizio original. Along with names like Bobby Alloway, Boyd Coddington, and Rick Dore, just to name a few, Roy Brizio injects his own style into every project he builds, so much so that Brizio-built cars can be easily picked out amongst hundreds of beautifully built cars...
