River Body Shop of San Jose, California. The shop was run by Joe Crisafulli. In 2015 Joe told Kustomrama that the shop was on River Street, with the river behind the shop; "I was at that location for about one year. Did a lot of nice cars there. Then winter came and the river rise. It came through the back door to the street. The shop was full of mud, so I couldn't do anything but quit. The landlord said I could cancel the lease." Joe's brother, Larry, was a bodyman, and worked with Joe in the shop. Tony was another bodyman that worked at the shop.[1]
