An afternoon with “Uncle Roy” at Brizio Street Rods

Growing up in South San Francisco, Roy Brizio had big shoes to fill. His dad, Andy Brizio was an internationally known figure in the colorful world of 1960s and 70s era American hot rodding. Known as “The Rodfather,” Andy Brizio basically put Northern California, and South San Francisco in particular on the map as hot rod Mecca. Andy’s “Champion Speed Shop” on old Mission Road was a rallying point for go fast guys like Jim McLennan, “Terrible” Ted Gotelli, Tommy “The Greek” Hrones, the Organ Grinders Car Club, Masters & Richter, Kent Fuller and countless others.
