Few people have been more dedicated to the hot rod lifestyle than Andy "The Rodfather" Brizio. Andy and his lovely wife, Sue, have been criss crossing the country in his iconic roadster, going from event to event more than any other rodder.

Built by Andy's son Roy and a group of Andy's Bay Area friends, the roadster was presented to Andy in 1985 on the occasion of his 50th birthday. A car of the times, it featured a signature "Roy Boy" chassis with four-bar links, a billet-posted windshield, grilles let into the hood sides, and a purple paint with the letter A incorporated into the graphics. However, after 11 years and 70,000 miles, the "Hi-Roy" was in a need of a makeover.

Away went the four-bar links and the tube axle, replaced with hairpin radius rods and a dropped and drilled I-beam. Away went the aluminum gills in the hood sides, replaced with more traditional louvers. Away went the billet-posted windshield, replaced with a Past Tech DuVall-style windshield. And away went the 1980's graphics, replaced with a more traditional flames added by Andy's longtime friend Art Himsl over House of Kolor Electric Purple paint applied by The Toy Works.

The body is a Wescott fiberglass. The grille shell is filled and peaked. In the rear, the pan is rolled and the recessed "RODFTHR" license plate is flanked by '39 teardrops. Proudly exposed below the pan is a Halibrand Champ quick-change located on ladder bars and suspended on coil-over shocks. Up front there's an in-your-face Moon tank ahead of the billet grille insert.

Under the three-piece hood is a nice, reliable, 350-ci smallblock Chevy built by Andy's friend Cub Barnett. The tranny is a Turbo 350. With so many miles under his belt, Andy's roadster now sports BF Goodrich tires mounted on Billet Specialities Legacy wheels measuring 14x6 up front and 15x10 in the rear.

Sid Chavers handled the simple yet practical interior, which he upholstered in cream leather. The dash contains a Haneline five-hole Stewart-Warner-style instrument panel with Ford racing instruments. The steering wheel was milled from billet by Chet Thomas and wrapped in matching leather.

When the rebuild was complete, late in 1996, Andy signed on, as he had always wanted, to visit every Goodguys event on their 1997 calendar.
And he's still driving it 37 years later.

Yes, we have
Andy's Picnic Signs, Hats and T-Shirts
available.... but in limted quantity.
on the sign to view.

Grabowski Tribute  


 Norm Grabowski, the man who literally invented the T-Bucket with his famous "Kookie Kar" passed away October 12, 2012.


Grabowski's creation launched hundreds of thousands of copies and even entire cottage industries over the years which is certainly not what the talented craftsman and hot rodder had in mind when he built the car in the early 1950s. The car's look was revolutionary for the time and featured a pieces from a 1922 Model T, the shortened bed from a Model A pickup truck, a Cadillac engine, and lots and lots of time and fabrication work to make it all look "right". Grabowski showed and drag raced the car.  



Current display at Sacramento Vintage.



 Above, Grabowski doing his thing!


  Rest In Peace Norman! You will be missed.

It's with great sadness we announce the passing our friend Fred Zimmerman. Fred lost his brief battle with cancer November 11, 2012. He was 69.

A hot rodder since age 14 in his native Kansas, Fred Zimmerman embodied the soul and spirit of a true hot rodder. His kind demeanor made him a pleasure to be around. His ability to coordinate hot rod-related activities made him a very popular member of the Danville Dukes car club - a group of guys he loved with all his heart. Fred also contributed greatly to Goodguys events over the years.

Since its inception, Fred was the driving force behind Goodguys Hot Rod Week - the annual August hot rod driving tour preceding the West Coast Nationals. Fred, with help from some other Danville Dukes, planned the route, drove the roads to make sure they weren't too bumpy and made sure everything was in order so hundreds of hot rodders could enjoy themselves.

Fred also got the majority of cars for the Goodguys Concourse-style shows in Pleasanton featuring museum-quality classics from the 20s and 30s. After retiring from AT & T, he worked as a docent then moved on to manage the bookstore at the Blackhawk Automotive Museum.

At events and on the street, Fred's hot rod was hard to miss. It was a black, perfectly stanced  '32 Ford 3 window coupe with a polished Moon tank out front and polished Americans on all four corners. It was a bitchin' hot rod.
Besides his passion for hot rodding, Fred loved traveling to Europe with his wife Artie. He was particularly fond of Southern Germany and Austria.

As the photo states, Fred's first wheels!

"It's a very sad day for the Goodguys Family," said Goodguys founder and Chairman Gary Meadors. "Fred truly was a Goodguy. As good as they come. We will miss him big time."

Thank you for everything you did for Goodguys
and hot rodding Fred

Fred, kneeling, and the Hot Rod Week planning crew over at Sacramento Vintage: Ed, Sal and Terry.

You will be missed Fred....Rest In Peace


McMullen roadster tops Mecum Anaheim
at $700,000

Courtesy Mecum Auctions / Hemmings
Auction Photos: Darold via the broadcast

It's been a few years since hot rods and customs captured headlines for their performance at auction, but if any rod was going to do so in this age of perfectly restored muscle cars and multi-million-dollar exotics, it would be the McMullen Deuce roadster, what some call the world's most iconic hot rod, which sold for $700,000 over the weekend at Mecum's Anaheim auction.

 The McMullen roadster wasn't the only hot rod or custom to break into the top 10 list of sales from the Mecum Anaheim auction. The Calori coupe sold for $300,000, while a Rick Dore-built 1950 Cadillac turned into a two-seat roadster sold for $140,000. Another prominent street rod, the Chuck-Lombardo-built 1932 Ford roadster that won the America's Most Beautiful Roadster award in 1983, bid up to $100,000 but failed to sell.

Rounding out the top 10 are a 1930 Duesenberg Model J Limousine, which sold for $370,000; a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback, which sold for $175,000; a 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster, which sold for $170,000; a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Z16, which sold for $170,000; a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback, which sold for $162,500; a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, which sold for $145,000; and a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible, which sold for $135,000.

On the flip side, a number of vehicles sold for less than $5,000 at the auction, including a 1961 Mercury Comet, which sold for $4,250; a 1962 GMC long-bed pickup, which also sold for $4,250; a 1963 Chrysler Newport, which sold for $4,000; a 1978 Volkswagen Beetle convertible, which sold for $3,500; a 1965 Ford F-100 pickup, which also sold for $3,500; a Volkswagen-based sand rail, which sold for $3,000; and a 1966 Electric Shopper, which sold for $2,000.

The Citrus Inn opened in 1913
in this very building on Folsom Boulevard. Citrus was sold in front of the building to everyone that passed by on busy Folsom Boulevard.

Folsom Boulevard was a main thoroughfare for the gold rush in the mid 1800s. Many immigrants and forty-niners were in search of some of the gold that James W Marshall and John Sutter found in the American River. The railroads that are still visible across the street today were the same railroads that were constructed in the late 1800s.

Rumor has it that over the years The Citrus Inn became many different businesses, including The Edwards Hotel, and at one point, a brothel. Everyone came to the building to eat good food and to have a good time. There was drinking and dancing 'til late at night.

Later, the building became known as Sheepherder Inn. It was a place for Basque sheepherders to come and rest upstairs in the Inn and enjoy a hearty meal downstairs, which probably consisted of meats, fish, lamb stews, legumes, cheeses and Basque cider.

In 1983 California Sprint Car racers were experiencing 'excessive sound' issues at numerous race tracks and were told to quiet the cars down or lose racing privileges. All attempts to silence the race engines without sacrificing power repeatedly failed.

Enter Flowmaster founder, Ray Flugger, with over 45+ years of exhaust design experience, and while working out of a small 800 square foot barn in Kenwood, California, created Flowmaster's first patented design of racing silencers. Ray attached handles to ease carrying the square shaped race mufflers through the race pits, and the mufflers became known as the "suitcase muffler." Today, these innovative Flowmaster mufflers are the result of years of development with top race engine builders, thousands of hours of dyno research and "real-world" on-track testing

Flowmaster's product line includes exhaust products for Performance Street, Muscle Cars, Trucks, Street Rods, RV's, Motorhomes, and all types of race applications. With over 400 different muffler models, 370+ exhaust systems and numerous exhaust accessories available, Flowmaster offers you the choice of sound to fit your preference from "wild to mild" and your specific vehicle needs.
