Al Sandberg liked hotrods ever since he could remember. He had his first rod in High School and that was his last one for fifty years. Al married young and was called up for service in Korea soon afterwards and sold his car. He came home to his wife, a new son, a job in the family business and the need to finish college.
A long time later after the death of his wife of 45 years, he was inspired to step up and buy himself a rod. He had been daydreaming of one and it happened that he had just met a widow lady he was interested in who he knew had spent a lot of her youth on the back of a Harley Davidson. He reasoned that she might like a guy with a hot rod, so he bought a ’32 red roadster with a blower.
He and Jeannette (the widow lady) dated for a few months and were married twelve years ago in January, using the roadster during their wedding. The red roadster only whetted Al’s appetite for something better and produced the desire to have a car built “from scratch”. He and Jeannette found a 1932 tudor sedan body in pieces and a black Brizio roadster in the Bay Area. Both cars were owned by the same party. Al couldn’t decide which car to buy so he bought both of them. Al and Jeannette had the fun of watching Roy Brizio and his team turn the pile of parts into a ‘32 classic design tudor sedan.
