Music...It's deep in our roots.

We live it,
breathe it and make it kick!


In 1973, KICKER's Livin' Loud legacy began as a two-man operation, hand-building professional-speaker systems in a narrow one-car garage. With very few resources and an intense love for music, company founder and current President Steve Irby invented the mobile-stereo enclosure market in his northern Oklahoma community, when he developed the Original KICKER.

Raybestos Roadster Pickup Project
by Hollywood Hot Rods



"RAYBESTOS" 32 ROADSTER PICKUP

This 1932 Ford Roadster pickup was built as a giveaway promotion for Raybestos Brake Corporation.  The design concept was to create the ultimate shop truck with a vintage Indy car aesthetic.  Unique features include low long sleek proportions, extended wheelbase, adjustable torsion bar suspension front and rear, one of a kind Indy car aluminum knock off wheels, the first ever Ford Coyote engine in a hot rod (2010), and the first Hilborn Coyote stack injection. 


It also features a Speedway quick change rear end, 5 speed Tremec trans, Indy style skeleton brakes in the rear and vintage Corvette brakes up front.  The truck performed as well as it looked, and  participated in multiple track events.

Hot Rod Network

When Darold and Lynnette Kohout opened Sacramento Vintage Ford in 1969 it was housed in a tiny, windowless, corrugated metal building. From that humble beginning their business has grown and today they occupy an impressive 70,000-square-foot facility packed with restoration and hot rod parts and enough memorabilia to start a museum.

In the huge showroom a number of famous rods and customs are always on display and you can grab a hot dog and shake in the '50s-style diner, appropriately dubbed the Chrome Grille.

Along with being one of the foremost parts suppliers in the hobby, Sacramento Vintage Ford also hosts a variety of activities that benefit the community. One such event is Vintage Fridays that supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Held four times this year, Vintage Fridays is open to pre-1973 U.S. makes and models, although you don't have to have a car to join in. Festivities kick off at 4 p.m., the barbecues are fired up by 4:30 and it's all over at 9 p.m. (Check the VintageFridays.com website for more information.)

If you're looking for parts and want to check out a really cool store, make sure to visit Sacramento Vintage.

FAQs For Classic Vehicle And Street Rod Owners

1: How often should I change my oil?

Quite simply - it depends. This certainly isn't the ideal answer, but it is the most honest one. Temperature plays a major role in the frequency of necessary oil change intervals. Every 20°F increase in oil temperature beyond 220°F shortens the life of the oil by 50%. This means cars that run very high oil temps will have much shorter oil life than cars that have moderate oil temperatures. Read On....

 
Designed Specifically For Hot Rods & Classic Vehicles

Well suited for a variety of hot rods, muscle cars and vintage vehicles. This oil is an excellent choice for big block muscle cars, blown street rods and engines with original seals. Features storage protection additives that guard against rust and corrosion during winter storage.

Good for flat tappet, overhead and roller cam engines. No ZDDP or additives required. Viscosity typical of 15W-50. Formerly referred to as HR1. 
 
 
The Importance of ZDDP 
ZDDP is the critical anti-wear additive in motor oils.  

Here Lake Speed, Jr., Certified Lubrication Specialist at Driven Racing Oil™, explains how the proper balance of detergents and zinc are the key to protecting engines.

SURF CITY GARAGE  PRODUCTS

 



So where did Surf City Garage detailing products  

come from?

 

Well, to keep the cars looking great, we tried every car care product around, but I just wasn't satisfied with the quality or performance. So we developed our own complete line of Enthusiast GradeŽ detailing products -- recognized around the world as the best anyone can buy. Our guarantee: if these aren't the best products you've ever used, give me a call and I'll personally buy them back - is unmatched in the industry.  

That's why, every day, more and more enthusiasts are switching to Surf City Garage Enthusiast GradeŽ - because nothing else even comes close.

South End Kustom was started by Dick Dean, the year was 1956 in Wyandotte, Michigan. Working for other shops, such as Clark/ Kaiser and the Alexander Brothers. South End Kustom stayed busy.  

 

In 1959, at the Detroit Autorama, Dick met George Barris. George had told Dick that he needed to be in California. At the end of that year Dick closed the shop and moved to California to work for Barris. In 2005, Dick Dean was set to retire. His son, Keith Dean wanted to continue the "Dean" tradition . As a tribute to Dick, Keith reopened the shop as South End Kustom and is continuing the old school kustom tradition set forth by his father.

Hosts Alex and Bob with show engineer, Mike.

Whether you own and/or are interested in the hobby and history of restoring or personalizing a classic, custom, hot rod or muscle car, we've got you covered.  We talk about kool cars, events, trends and California vehicle laws that affect our hobby.



Hosted by Alex Blanca and Bob Stearns, CRUISIN' GARAGE is the voice for the classic car owner, the race car fan or anyone interested in the history and hobby of restoring or personalizing a classic, custom, hot rod or muscle car.

The ninety minute show is packed with guests who come from all areas of the classic car industry.  From the local swap meet car parts seller, garage builder to show car owner and parts manufactures, we welcome them all.  We're talking about local barn finds, car shows, swap meets, industry trends and the California vehicle laws that affect our hobby.  

Our goal is to inform and share experiences of our guests and help maintain a continued interest for the next generation of car collectors.  We do this by promoting local car clubs, car shows, the sponsors and the charities that benefit.  If you have a car or car parts for sale, preferably pre-1973, give us a call during the show, or tell us what you're looking to buy.

Roy Brizio Street Rods has for more than twenty years earned a well deserved reputation for providing the parts and pieces as well as complete turnkey cars that have defined modern hot rodding. In fact, the Brizio name has been synonymous with quality hot rods for nearly half a century and has spanned two generations.
 
Our philosophy is simple: to build and help others build the finest looking and driving hot rods of our time. Our achievements point to the successful implementation of this thinking. We have built Oakland Roadster Show winners and Hot Rod Magazine's 50th Anniversary celebration "T" roadster, but perhaps our greatest pride comes from building dual purpose show winning drivers. No other shop the world can boast of putting more miles on their cars than Roy Brizio Street Rods. 

We anxiously await the opportunity to assist you with your next project, whether it be just a few parts, a complete Brizio chassis or a turnkey cross country cruiser.

EDELBROCK FAMILY FOUNDATION

 
The Edelbrock Family Foundation was formed with the purpose of bringing together like-minded organizations that share a passion for providing education and training for America's youth. We hope to foster a new generation of automotive industry leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, enthusiasts and more. 

 
Over the last 75 years, the Edelbrock family has proven itself as a leader and pioneer within the automotive aftermarket industry.

From the day Vic Edelbrock Sr. went over 121 miles per hour, 3 weeks before Pearl Harbor, to the Sprint Cup Series cars that race every Sunday with Edelbrock manifolds, the Edelbrocks have a legacy of going fast.
