I agree....he was such a jack on his show and had ridiculous time constraints on the projects but they would build some really nice cars.....this is def a loss for the automotive world.

Re: Boyd Coddington Dies

He built some nice cars, but a lot of the stuff from the show was junk. The mustang they did for that dude's wife, they sold it within a month or something like that because it was garbage. Having to scramble for a retarded deadline like on the show is just asking for shortcuts....and pissing off employees is just begging for junk.

I'm not sure what to think of this. If I knew him better, it might be different. But the person I saw on TV makes it hard to have sympathy. Luckily for everyone out there...there is still Chip and several others that took the torch from Boyd long ago and ran with it.
