    Yea, cool shot. Up over Bay street, my high school a couple of blocks down on the left side.

    There is actually someone riding in the little bed of that T-bucket!

    Picture #1 of post #1. Does anyone know who painted those wild flames on the Volksrod?

    Was with mom & dad and brother in I'd say 1966 (?) on vacation in CA from MN and dad stopped by Brizio's shop so I could see this exact car. Had won the Oakland Roadster show, and I wanted to see it in person. Andy was out for the day, but someone called him at home, and we were given directions to his home. We all were invited in the backyard for a lemonade, and Roy (about 14 years old?) drove the T from the garage, through a backyard gate, back to where we were sitting with his family. WHAT a nice guy...

    Thanks for some Great S.F. Bay Area hot rod history. This photo has Tony Del Rio at the left and your Dad shaking hands with Mike "The World's Fastest Hippie" Mitchell with the long hair. That is when the Oakland Roadster Show was THE SHOW !

  16. X2. Thank you for taking the time and sharing these with us. As my grandfather used to say, "Muuuust beeee niiiiice!" These threads are what make the HAMB.
  17. Very cool pics! Thank you! I met Andy at Goodguys in Medina Ohio in the mid 90's. He drove across the country in his Purple flamed Deuces roadster. He signed a cloth poster and couldn't have been a nicer guy! I also got to see the shop when I was in San Fran a few years ago. Very classy people. The Brizio's are an extremely important part of hot rod history!!

    You are correct it was at Detroit and probably the last photo of the three cars together, as the T was already sold to it current owner.

    Terri looking at these photos makes me really appreciate what Street Rods started as.I was just getting into Street Rodding in 1971 at age 16.Although i never had a running car until a few years later i could watch what your Dad was doing thru the magazines.I remember going to Rod Runs with my older brother in groups because you knew someone would have trouble and the whole group was ready to help with anything.You have lived a blessed life and i hope you can keep these memories lasting FOREVER.Tell your Dad he is one of the greatest and made Rodders have the dream of Having Fun With Old Cars.Thank you again for the pics and taking the time to shall them with us.

    Now I understand why many of Roy's cars have the "look" they have. Right on!

    That name Hollenbeck rings a bell too. Excuse me for assuming, but is your husband related to the body/ paintmen who painted Bud Bryan's 29 Av8 back in the day? If so, you have another legend in the family.

    x2...Love the old shop/store shots. I like studying the backround stuff -walls, benches, machines, toolboxes, etc. ...makes you wish you were there.

  28. Such great pics! I was spending some quality time with them and WOW! -- a passenger in the pickup box! I thought Chester was only joking in his book when he referred to building a T-Bucket rumble seat. That is a very cool pic and must have been a bit of a scary ride.
