To Shane

Those are some wonderful cars I must say. Before I owned a Mercedes, these were what I loved to own, a 77 Olds Delta Royale coupe, 79 Coupe de ville, and '82 and '88 Crown Vic.

Your Crown Vic has full "whacker" equipment on it though, be careful of being stopped for being nabbed for "Impersonating". some cops are pretty touchy about that. Certainly getting one from the White House fleet is waaaaay better
tna getting one
of the regular patrol Vomit Comets.

The '80 Fleedwood is set up just right, I really like what you did to that one. for an American car it is just my speed.

The Seville and the 75 Olds convert are actually trailer cars, now, you can't drive them, which is too bad. Ever mile would diminish their value..

No, I'd still hate him. One name - Chip Foose. If you knew anything about the history of Boyd and some of the people he's let "get away" (such as the aforementioned Foose), his attitude towards them once they leave, and the rampant ineptitude his boisterous attitude fosters, you may understand why I have such little respect for him.

Then again, you think Hitler was a genius, so I won't hold my breath.

To paraphrase a line from the season finale of Boston Legal…”He used to be Boyd Coddington.”

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Boyd Coddington, and Foose are responsible in part for the trend of putting value on the worthless, such as the 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda convertible that sold for $2,000,000 a couple of years ago.

Silly money for rubbish cars. OMFG it is a clone of "Eleanor" the Ford Mustang in the crap movie "Gone in 60 Seconds" with Nicholas Cage! It must therefore be priceless.

NOT sour grapes, either.

I don't begrudge either of them that. Something is worth what a person will pay for it. Baby boomers - especially those who are nouveau riche - have way more money than sense. If they want to blow their entire wad on a car they lusted after as a kid, more power to them.

I just think Boyd runs a miserably dysfunctional ship. His cars get built despite - not because - of he and his bald bulldog. He's able to recruit based on the prominence of his name, not because of the quality of his operation. The good folks all leave, after being consistently disrespected and abused, which pisses him off to no end.
