Boyd and his staff were gracious enough to allow us to tour the hot rod shop and the wheel manufacturing plant with the large CNC machines that make the famous Boyd "billet" wheels. Boyd also showed us his own 456 GT, complete with a custom set of Boyd's wheels on it, of course!
Some of the interesting cars under construction were:
The quality of the workmanship is excellent, and most of the car parts are made right in the shop, from suspension components to hand formed body panels.
Among those in attendance was Robert Cumberford, the noted columnist for "Automobile" magazine. Many of us confessed to having grown up with hot rodding and still yearn for a "wind in your face" blast down the street in a big-block Chevy-powered roadster!
Boyd Coddington's shop produces state of the art hot rods, and his cars have won many awards for design and showmanship, and each car is really a work of art.
We would like to thank Boyd and Diane Coddington and their staff for hosting a great event!
