Guest: Brendan Ostrowski, Ostrowski Racing.
Brendan Ostrowski, age 17, has racing in his blood as his family raced for over 30 years. He started karting in 2013 and never looked back with multiple track records, championships, fast times, and feature wins under his belt. This year he will be piloting the number 27L IMCA SportMod at tracks all over Wisconsin. As of last year, he ended his first season with 13 top 10’s, and one top 5 in 20 starts.

One piece at a time
That thing could fly
If I had a car
Every woman should know
Wierdos drag 1320
Stand on it
Born to be wild
Lord Mr. Ford
Riding with Private Malone
A full hour of “Not Your Average Hot Rod” songs – Volume 1
Hot rod roadster
High speed pursuit
No place to park
This old truck
Hot rod baby
Folsom prison blues
Parramatta hot rod man
Take a ride with me
Giddy up ding dong
Till I waltz again with you
Cruisn’ at night
Candy apple red impala
Pappa let me have the car keys
Rock n roll good time in my Cadillac

We will be talking with Vince Heywood who works on and drives a 1940 Oldsmobile. It has satin black paint with scallop flames and red wheels with small caps. The name “Lucille” is hand-painted next to a pin-up girl. All that is below a massive pinstriping scroll that sits on the hump trunk.
Where does his generation want to take the car culture? We will be talking with Vince about his build and to get his “youthful” insights about where the car scene is going.
Ian Roussell has been quoted saying that Victor is the most challenging of all his clients and he wouldn’t want it any other way. On the show – Full Custom Garage – we see Victor bringing custom build ideas to Ian. These builds can range from ripping the skin off a Porsche 911 and fabricating a complete supercar body – to – blowing a new unusual multi-bubble – bubble top for a futuristic Thunderbird.
We are honored that Victor has agreed to talk with us because even though he’s on TV, he doesn’t give many interviews.
Mr. Jalopy has had three of his cartoon drawings made into drivable vehicles. There is the Johnny 5 VW van/truck resting on a t-bucket setup. Then there is the Space Junkie 2 bubble top, slotted mohawk shaped fins with an all-in-one steering, gas pedal, and brakes. Next, there is the Funky Futura From Ventura dune buggy show ride that was made with a truck cap and a can of Great Stuff insulating foam.
Brooks worked with Ian Roussel on Monster Nation, where Brooks was a cameraman and Ian was the “behind the scenes” fabricator. Together they created a several popular DVD called “Back from the Dead: Hot Rod Documentary”. Brooks has worked on Jesse James: Blacksmith, How Stuff Works, Vans Cup at Tahoe, and more.
In response to the many requests, we receive here at Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio for more of Ian Roussel and Full Custom Garage – we decided to host several of the key figures from the show.
Full Custom Garage is TV series dedicated to building custom vehicles. It features Ian Roussel who has been creating some of the coolest rides since Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.

Happy New Year!
2020 sucked! Car shows canceled, restaurants were closed, businesses suffered and everyone was told to stay separated.
Let’s put pedal to the metal and get ready for 2021!
