Chip Foose vs. Boyd Coddington

What is the story with this 2 guys? I've seen in an old hot rod mag that foose was boyd's designer, but in the american hot rod tv show that was in the air a few month ago down here, at boyd's this guy (the painter) quited his job to go to Chip's and Boyd was very pissed because his employee went to his enemy's.
I also heard that Boyd went bankrupt.
come on I want to hear the gossip

Augusto.

Most people don't care and boyd is a hack anyways. I watched boyds show once and I could not believe how little of an appearance cars made and how big of an appearance high school dramam made.

It's a lame reality show and no one watches it. Keep in mind any designer that has a tv show is on his way out as a fabricator.

Somebody must watch it....or it wouldn't be on. Boyd paid his dues, built some nice cars. Most TV is a sham...................

Personally, I don't care for Boyds or Fooses styles....................but lots do like them.

Boyd and Foose are both great builders/designers in their own right. There is definately no love lost between the two of them though! You may want to do a search of the site heading above and spend some time reading past threads on the two of them. There's about 5 pages of threads for each of them I believe.

The way I understand it is that Chip used to manager one of Boyd's departments and did some building on his own and Boyd did not like it. I think Chip is a great person having meet him once. I do not like the way Boyd treats his workers. Makes them work overtime on a minutes notice and if they don't he gets mad. Chip is more laid back and does not accept rush jobs on his own. Chip also get involved in the building and get dirty with his workers where Boyd does not get involved except to make last minute changes.

Foose did work for Boyd when he went out on his own after working for his dad for awhile. He did some great work and Boyd took credit. The Boydster is one. Foose left. With all the croap that goes on with Boyd, Foose ended up recruiting a lot of Boyds people. Charlie the painter, Beetle Bailey, Mike the machinist, and a couple of others. Boyd did get into some financial trouble a couple of times and the last time he sold off the wheel division to American Racing. There are a couple of other articles on here if you do a search for Boyd or Foose. But watching the show and seeing the demeaner of both, who would you rather work for. Discovery.com has a forum about Boyd with a couple of his guys actually answering some questions. Most of the time though, people are just slamming him.

I don't care for either as both hack cars (original nice cars) and are kit happy. The last thing I would be proud of would be a generic crate engine in my car (if I could actually afford one)...

And of course, your mileage may vary...

If I had TV show I'd show harmony in the work place and quality work being dome to promote business,,,the way Boyd's place acts tells me he would never ever build a car for me(if I could afford him),he has paid his dues though.
Fooze is IMO a great designer and doesn't seem to get excited ,at least on TV.There are people who claim to be experts in every walk of life ,every trade, when they actually do shoddy work.

Somebody must watch it

I love Boyd's show. What surprised me is the amount of body filler Boyd's shop uses, I'd be worried about what the paint job would look like in 2-5 years. I think the final product looks very nice as far as paint quality though.

Foose's show "Overhaulin" has too much about the goofy prank and not enough about the overhaul IMO. I'm glad they got rid of that Courtney Hansen moron.

Has anyone noticed that Duane isn't quite the ***hole he was in last Year's episodes? While I think a lot of the "Drama" is made up, there is no doubt that there is some turmoil.

I like Foose as a person, but it strikes me as kind of weird that Boyd's guys end up at Foose's, which I think is kind of lame on Foose's part. Boyd certainly has some issues, but it appears to me that with his Foundation (which may be a Tax write-off) he is trying to do some good. Boyd is Boyd.

Also, while it may appear to us that Boyd is hurting, look at the Teutel's. Paul Sr. is rich now-isn't it possible that Boyd (and Chip) are doing equally as well? I think a lot of it is for a storyline-
