What do you do with Summer quickly coming to a close? You catch some sand and sea before the coziness of fall and crisp winter sets in. Rod Authority did just that during our recent model shoot with Stacey Urzua.
The story of how we got in touch with the gorgeous Stacey and the equally stunning ’54 she posed alongside dates back to the 2014 Temecula Rod Run. We first caught site of Brent Rothweiler’s Oz Kustoms built ’54 during the event and it was then that we first lined out future plans of shooting his ride.
When it came time to honor the dialogue, we asked Brent if there was anyone he knew that would like to model alongside his ’54. His first and quick response was Stacey, who is not only a show-stopper and fine example of the beauty that Southern California boasts, this catch is also his girlfriend. You did good Brent!
The idea for the setting of the shoot came about when we covered this year’s Ink-N-Iron. Driving along Ocean Boulevard towards the Queen Mary, we caught a local’s turn-off towards the beach that, upon entering showcased a perfect layout to park Brent’s ride. The sand was shallow and a long row of palm trees lined the beach front apartments giving us some great perspective shots.
On the day of the shoot, we were greeted by Stacey and Brent. It was a real pleasure spending the afternoon with these two. Both are comedians in their own right and know how to have a good time. Needless to say, they made the shoot that much more fun and memorable.
Be sure to stay tuned for a full feature on Brent Rothweiler and his ’54 Buick coming up in the next few weeks. But now, please read on and enjoy the interview and exclusive gallery with Stacey Urzua who’s definitely mastered how to kill with a smile and a sultry stare!
Stacey grew up in Rancho Cucamonga and played soccer most of her childhood. In her adulthood fitness, nutrition, and anything involving athleticism peaks her interest–judging by some of the flex shots she was more than happy to break out, we believe her! Watch out fellas, Stacey looks amazing in heels, but we’re sure she could toss a full grown man over the pier if they got fresh!
Stacey told us, “I love to snowboard and wake board, and I’m fairly decent at both.” With any woman that strives to maintain her physical appearance, an equal dedication to mental fitness is more than a plus. Stacey not only has one, but two college degrees.
Stacey attended California State University Fullerton for her Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Azusa Pacific University for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She is one well rounded woman whose hard work and down-to-earth attitude will certainly ensure her success in life. It’s definitely not just all about good looks with this model. “I am an RN and work on a cardiac unit. My work life consists of taking care of patients at a high acuity level and making a difference in their lives,” Stacey explained.

I grew up listening to oldies while my dad was working in the garage
Stacey comes from a family that’s rooted in classic car culture so it’s easy to see why she gravitates towards the culture herself.

We want to extend our thanks to Stacey for taking time out of her busy work schedule to shoot with us! In fact, shortly after the shoot she had a shift she had to be at.
