Since the 2011 Grand National Roadster Show, we have been very busy here at Brizio Street Rods. With some of the projects in progress and a couple starting new, the goal was to finish seven new entries for the 63rd Annual GNRS. As you can see from the photos, the variety is wide spread. While all seven placed very well in their classes, there was one SPECIAL award that was given to Eric Clapton’s 1932 four door Vicky, the Al Slonaker Award. The Slonaker Award has been given out since the mid 70’s when the GNRS was the Oakland Roadster Show. Back then there were only two special awards given out, America’s Most Beautiful Roadster and the Al Slonaker Award. The Slonaker Award goes to any non-roadster that shows special engineering and modifications to that vehicle. For all of us at Brizio’s, it was an honor to see this award go to a car that was built in Northern California, where the award originated. Check out the build of all these cars in the Rods in Progress sections.
