View Full Version : RIP Boyd

Boyd Coddington, the custom car creator, past this morning at the ripe young age of 63. I met him briefly once, at a car show my Sterling was at. He nodded and waved as he walked by, but his wife Jo took the time to actually talk to me. Should be interesting to see what happens to Coddington industries now, especially since they've a bunch of lawsuits to settle.

I obviously never met him and the law suits and polotics I don't know about, all I do know is that as a creator of great hot rods he was one of the best and when everyone went stupid spending $250K on rods he turned up in an old skool rod just to show where the roots of rodding came from and everyone was stunned as it wasn't a megga shiny big buck rod BUT it still was one of the best rods at the show and he parked it in the carpark not the show ground.

I followed his TV programme on Discovery and will miss his apparent ineptitude as a manager of people but obvious talent as an artist and creator of good looking HotRods.
