    He was mean on his show, but they had some nice cars.

    Reading the other links would help. That was just the beginning. Apparently he had a stroke after.

    He doesn't do any actual work on the cars. They should be called "Hotrods by people that work for Boyd"

    Whether you like the guy or not, theres no denying his influence on the automotive hot rod/street rod world.

    Guys like Foose wouldn't be where they were without him.

    Contrary to popular belief he actually built cars before a TV show.

    I know he did before, as all the legends did. But hell, Fuss still works on his cars. Boyd just sits in an office and makes money. :dunno:

    I don't believe that for a minute. Foose would still be where he is today whether Boyd was around or not. He is too talented not to...

    No - Foose worked there for a while, then Foose left to do his own thing.

    Thats too bad. He looked really out of shape when he had his TV show on discovery. an easy 150 pounds overweight.
