    Last night I saw an episode where Charlie (main body shop man) told Boyd Coddington he was leaving, and joining the competitors (Chip Foes) and other stuff.
    Anyone know if there is a follow up episode saying more? Saw the ending a few weeks ago too, so I know it isn't NEW.

    I don't keep up with it very often, but know what you're talking about. I think he stayed with Chip, but don't know that's 100% sure.

    I also think he did the right thing by leaving.. there is no reason to set the deadlines they do. Then the next car is just as crazy.. or has an even closer deadline. Who wants to spend all the hours he was spending there? Not him I guess.. I wouldn't want to either. I guess he thinks their lives should be building his cars.. :screwy: while he gets richer off it..

    exactly buddy. what has the world come to? the deadline is now the dead line for your life to stop and be the slave. not cool in my book. and if you arnt excited about the build then why stay late and work on it.

    Charlie....


    Chip, boy you coppers sure keep your info straight :D

    Yeah he left a long time ago, he did one car then decided to go work for Foose. Boyd made the whole thing all about him, "what are you doing to me?" blah blah blah. All I know is, here at Wyotech a lot of kids almost idolize him(Boyd). I tell them flat out they are idiots. I would never EVER work for a man like that. I can udnerstand one or two projects a year where you need to finish it up ASAP. Like BTF recently built a Jeep Unlimited in about a weeks time for Easter Jeep. Thats understandable. Maybe Pre-Sema scramble. But when every project you work on is like that???? Kids here are like "thats how any real shop is" just lets me know they've never been in a REAL shop. Cars take time to do it right. I'd never buy from or work for Boyd Coddington. He thinks about himself and himself alone in my opinion. I stopped watching just before Charlie quit.

    No one is working for him or buying from him anymore , he died according to todays news :(

    A-hole or not , he broke some ground with some of his cars , and always wanted things his way , and I can agree to a point , I want things "MY" way too :)

    Damn, thats too bad to here. I had goose bumps rise as I read this. I gotta say this though. His cars were nice, but his deadlines he pushed were just riddiculous! RIP Boyd..

    Yay!!!!!!! that focker finally croaked. I watched his shows long enough to lose interest in his builds. Can never stand that guy, his focking beard made it hard for me to lip read when he talks.
    All I read in the closed captions was " bicker bicker bicker bicker bicker and so on" and no wonder why half the workforce parted ways. And where the hell did he get those ridiculouis deadlines? "It's gotta be done in 4 days two weeks ago!" Ah kiss my ass.

    Now with that aside, Chip was a great guy, never read a word of his bickering in closed captions.... Makes for a much more relaxing hotrod building entertainment.
    I'd build a nice go fast car when I get the money, after I'm done with the rockcrawler upgrades.
