From a very young age, Roy Brizio knew that working on and building street rods was what he wanted to do. Brizio’s father had a shop that he worked at when he was a kid and learned a lot from the guys that his father employed.
It took Brizio more than 20 years to be successful at what he does and it was no easy feat. Long hours, long work-weeks, and the utmost attention to detail is how he got his name to be what it is now, and really nothing has changed. Brizio states that they’re building the same cars as they were over 30 years ago, just fine tuned – it definitely shows.
From the video, you can tell that his shop is never empty and that there is always a project being worked on and that’s the beauty of mastering what you do – obtaining business will never be a problem.
Every project at Brizio’s shop starts out as a couple of framerails, then the engine is determined, along with whatever else the customer wants. Everything is assembled completely before it is disassembled for paint and once the car is finished being assembled after paint, Brizio puts 300 miles on the cars to make sure everything is in working order and ready to be handed off to it’s new owner.
This video by James Maloney does a great job showcasing what Brizio’s hard work has accomplished and the awesome cars he produces. Anyone else notice the ’37 Cord with the FWD-configured LS1 engine? That is a build we can’t wait to see finished! For more information on Brizio Street Rods, check out the website.
