This truly is a great show. Coddington is the J.R.Ewing of the southern
California Hot Rod business and there is never a dull moment. Each
custom hot rod build spans 3 or 4 shows each of which is interesting
and filled with some unique people. I believe there may be some
pressure from the Discovery channel to set deadlines on the car builds
that makes for a more interesting show. In reality even if a car is
"rushed" for the sake of the show it will be detailed later to be sure
it meets or exceeds Boyd's high standards. The Coddington cars built on
American Hotrod are even more valuable than a regular Coddington custom
and are bringing excellent profits for the primary customer Scotty Gray
when he auctioned a few at the Barret Jackson Auction in Feb 2005. Boyd
is character himself with his current wife and ex-wife both working
there at the shop there is always some tension in the air.
