Roy Brizio & Bob Dron River Ranch Run
Hot rod designer-builder-entrepreneur Roy Brizio will lead a procession of Brizio-built Ford roadsters, coupes and sedans headed for the May 18 River Ranch Run at Bob Dron’s historic Delta Diamond Farm near Isleton.
Dron will throw open the grounds of his 25-acre Delta Diamond estate for a gathering of hot rods and custom cars and motorcycles at the riverside facility.
Admission is $10 per vehicle, and with any number of occupants. Hours for the River Ranch Run are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Refreshments and entertainment will be available along with auto and motorcycle-related booths.
“I can’t say at this point which of his sweet-running street rods Roy will be bringing,” Dron says, “but we know that dozens of his customers are going to make the River Ranch Run in all manner of Brizio rides.”
Dron and his wife Tracey are staging the 125-year-old Sacramento River cherry orchard and Victorian homesite as a center for weddings, car shows, corporate gatherings, retreats and picnics. Located right in the center of the vast and untrammeled Delta, the Farm includes renovated and new buildings for catering, on-property work centers and meeting facilities.
Dron is an Isleton native and motoring enthusiast who’s been building and riding custom motorcycles and hot rods for more than four decades. For some 30 years, the Drons set national benchmarks for Harley-Davidson motorcycle sales, marketing and merchandising at their Oakland, CA, dealership. He is a member of the Oakland Roadster Show Hall of Fame.
