    I just saw this on Foose's sight. Is it just a coincidence that he's naming his car the Boydster or is this a shot against Boyd Coddington..lol?

    Boydster

    I didn't know he won the Riddler this year

    Boyd does seem like a jerk. Maybe that's why no one stay's long working for him.

    Foose :bowdown:

    Some dude who worked at Boyds place quite and went to work at Foose. I don't recall the guys name, but it was someone real close to him. I mean close as in Boyd took the guy in and let him leave at his house for a few years. I'd be willing to bet this could have something to do with it.

    foose has taken a few people like that from boyd... but at least foose works on his cars, unlike boyd. and boyd's shop is falling apart, he's now losing people left and right because he is making the deadlines way to short time after time...

    there is no love loss between them so I wouldn't doubt he builds the Boydster even better than Boyd could.

    American Hot Rod is gonna be the end of Boyd Coddington Hot Rods for sure.... customers are getting to see exactly what kind of quality work doesn't come from that shop now. If I owned one of the cars that was on the show I'd be pissed at myself for spending that kind of cash at his shop!

    When Foose worked for Boyd he made the Boydster, so it isn't a shot at Boyd.

    Straight from the Foose website...

    "November 1990 brought about the beginning of a relationship with Boyd Coddington and Hot Rods by Boyd, becoming a full time position in 1993, which lead to Managing Director where Chip eventually became the President of Hot Rods by Boyd. Chip, who is widely acclaimed for his "Boyd Look" design and creative skills, was responsible for many internationally known vehicles such as: Roadster, Sportstar, Boydster I and II, and Boyd Air to name a few. Chip's venture with Boyd however, ended in 1998."
