Wow - he looked like he was in pretty decent shape during the show. Too bad.
maybe he was a closet drug addict?
wow that really blows.
Maybe you suck coks with both hands.
WOW, never saw that coming. RIP Boyd
Had to be a heart attack. That guy was ridiculously high strung.
Will you speak at my funreal [sic] ?
Sure, stinkboy was an asshole most of the time, but he loves macs. so he was alright. Now he's dead. Pass the punch.
Wow, I never expected that.
I will your parking to be validated.
I think I would like his earlier stuff more than his later stuff.
Not a fan of billet sh*t.
I'm way too tired to rip holes in this post...
rip away, i won't mind.
Damn, I liked that guy on the show. Yes, a bit high strung at times but that's tv.
I'm not much of a car fan, but I appreciate all forms of metal fabrication.
American Hot Rod is a fun show to watch. You get metal work and drama in every episode.
You must be plastered...
Cadzilla is bad ass. I saw it at an IASCA show and there is no picture that does that car justice. One thing I love about his designs was he stayed true to the original lines of the car.
Whether you liked him or not, there is no denying the impact he has had on the hot rod scene for many years. He was truly an innovator and a bona-fide car nut. I met him on a couple of occasions and he was very gracious and was always ready to talk cars. His cars were absolutely works of art, billet or not. The custom car scene has lost an icon and he will be greatly missed.
Not to mention bringing up guys like Chip Foose and Jesse James as students.
From being associated with a local car show in which we're able to bring Chip & Sam Foose as judges and getting to meet with Chip it must have been a scene to see with Boyd's ideas and Chips creativity. The last I saw of that show people from Boyd's outfit were leaving to go work for Chip (some of the bodyshop guys).
No matter what cars Boyd's shop turned out he would only do the cars the way they should be done. He didn't try chopping everything to pieces or make something that wasn't suppose to be there. He kept the cars clean, but while adding modern era items to them that would make them fun to drive. I think compared to some of the other hot-rod builders and their shops out there his might not be the highest of high end, but it was up there. If you've ever seen the show RIDES that use to be on TLC I think those were the high end of high end.
He'll be missed in the car community.
I kinda liked that show. RIP Boyd.
that sucks I liked the banter on the show, and even though a lot of his newer stuff didn't do it for me, I respected the heck out of his accomplishments!
The show was amusing because that place was a train wreck.
I'll be curious to see what the cause of death was. He had been in and out of the hospital for the last month or so after a fall at his house some time in January. Initially, he was checked out and released, but then was still having discomfort of some sort. He was rushed to emergency surgery late January, but it was never disclosed what the actual problem was. Supposedly he was doing okay after that but looks like there was something major going on.
The amount of stress he put on himself didn't help. He had insane deadlines ALWAYS. It wasn't just one or two builds with tight schedules. That amount of stress when you are talking about trying to maintain a level of quality combined with the amount of money involved is crazy.
Wow... the car industry has lost a true original.
hated the show, respect the work. RIP BC
