Some of the hottest Hot Rods built anywhere are crafted by Roy Brizio, who has emerged since the 90′s as one of hot rodding’s preeminent figures. It was inevitable for Roy, hanging around his Father’s Champion Speed Shop, a horsepower charged environment, would give him a Love for the the American Hot Rod. Being single minded, he focused in traditional style, refinement and reliability; resulted in a solid car that could be driven hard by enthusiasts, while exuding the expert craftsmanship. Brizio was known for saying, those driving a Porsche would be thought of as “Rich Guy”, but those cruisin in a 32′ Ford Highboy, would be thought of as “Cool Guy”. Pat Ganahl, a former editor of Hot Rod said ” Brizio’s genius is giving each car a unique personality, gives reason why many celebrities have requested a customized Hot Rod to their specifications. Featured – is our 1932 Hot Rod Pedal Car , similar to Brizio’s masterpieces. With, ball bearing drive, hood louvers, working trunk, detailed grille, chrome- steering wheel and hub-caps; wrapped in a high luster Powder Coat finish and custom graphics. Truly, the quintessential American Hot Rod, will cast memories for a Lifetime.
Supplying adequate Fire-fighting equipment in the early 1900′s, was always a challenge. When urban cities grew, the Aerial component became more and more necessary. At first, manually extendable ladders were used; as they grew in length and weight, they were placed over two large wheels. Before long, the turntable ladder was mechanically extended, installed directly on top a Fire Truck. After WWII, the turntable ladder was supplemented w/an aerial platform w/snorkel referred to as the “Cherry Picker”; this addition allowed reaching “Dead Corners” up to 150′. Our beautifully crafted Fire Truck Pedal Car , was the basis for the early Aerial platforms. Featuring – wooden ladders, ball bearing drive, hose reel, chrome – fire bell, steering wheel, windshield and hub-caps, all wrapped in a high luster Powder Coat finish and custom graphics. Surely, these stunning Fire Trucks will be a Thrill for your ‘Lil’ Fireman, and a hit in any neighborhood.
