I think foose was the inspiration behind most of boyds famous designs,he he worked for him for a long while .probably why theres so much bitterness between the two of them.
but your right boyd is a complete cock who laps up the fame and attention his cars bring him ,whist forgetting that its the skill ,experience and dedication of his employees that creates such cool machines.
bit like most bosses then .
As for dwane ,i like him . his no bullshit approach to management is spot on,theres nothing worse than getting a half hearted telling off from a limp wristed geeky little management type,when what you really need is a kick up the arse from some one you fear

how van you respect a manager whos style is abuse  , even when not 'telling off' ? he offers nothing constructive whats so-ever .i do not see and qualities of his i would adopt as amanger or want my manager to adopt ( unless my manager wanted a f**king good hoofing)

ive worked in the motor trade since school and had a few bosses and managers like dwane and at times i wanted to smack em one ,but, productivity and general work place behavior was a hell of a lot better with them than without them.
one place i worked ,two of the painters would clock in in the morning then spend the whole morning in the pub because they knew the manager was too spineless to put a stop to it.
have you ever watched the series The Garage ,that jock bloke works the same way as dwane,"if you dont like it, get your tools and f*ck off" style.

yeah, coz it's all real like

 

look round the garage when they are doing a mega super duper rush job and you will see another mega super duper rush job that has been in the series already or will feature later

If you were working on a rod that someone was paying you a fortune to build would you clock out and go home at 5  apart from charlie staying late and the odd night from the lads it's all 9-5 stuff.

If I woz havin a rod built or custom done i'd prefer Foose's shop tbh, the Boyd's lot are not as pro as Foose in the way they buy alot of stuff in even like the rails and aftermarket speedos. I know it's slightly different but really, drilling holes after painting?WTF? and that bluear f**kin' bloke/kid whats his f**kin' problem, i'd kick his arse right out the door long before Boyd did. Foose's shop can do it for me, anyone lend me their credit card?

to put my ten penneth in boyd coddington may be a dick but he is responsible for some amazing hot rods over the past 30 years he is  very talented

however the bullshit american tv programmes are unwatchable and there is no skill involved everything is bought in and assembled in house that american chopper is the same!

better of watching scrapheap challenge with the lovely lisa rodgers

at least its real!
