Thumbs down Re: American Hotrod

I heard indian larry died what happen to him, i am glad charlie left, he seemed to be a smart guy who knew what he was doing. The show just goes to show that the cars are not as good as you think, some of the things they do make me think twice about wanting one of them, Boyd is an azz, he would not even shake charlies hand, good luck finding another top painter, i hear Earl Shibe is avaliable, SCREW BOYD HE SUXS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Foose already had his own talent. I enjoy watching the show only to see the actual manufacturing, otherwise it's a train wreck. I had a high opinion of Boyd until his life became public. Worst character is his ex wife the company comptroller...her voice makes my ears bleed.
Actually, I believe that Chip started at GM (I'm not sure about that), he then worked for Boyd in the late 80 (Cadzilla I know was his design) then when Boyd when bankrupt (KE style) Chip split off on his own. I believe that he rose to be president at Boyd's, which could be part of the bad blood. It's around this time that he worked for Chrysler. I suspect that this was work on a contract basis.

If you watch Overhauling closely, you see another face on there. He kinda looks like AudioFn. At first I was thinking that he was Dobbertin, but that's not him. He too is somebody famouns in the street rod world, but I don't know his name. He's been on the show a couple of times, so I suspect that he works for Foose.

While I'm on the Overhaulin' show...they really need to get two new hosts. Neither of them know squat about cars. He knows a little, but she is dumber than a box of rocks.

Cars.... please... what a waste of time...

Stick where the real HP is... under our hatches.

Wind, Waves, Multiple Blower whine and quad 4" exhaust pipes at 5500 RPM with chicks in bikinis sporting glass cutters.... Who gives a rats azz about some one engine ticket getter...

click the link that will spell out his life, I like the fact that he brings his drawings to life...a feat in itself.

Courtney is one of the main features of the show(Overhauling).

Chances are..if a female can wrench.....she ain't gonna be a model.

And......I'm O.K. with hiphuggers.

People who live on land, maybe??
Can't walk to the marina. Can't boat on asphalt.

You must live in Venice, Italy.
