I am fan of Chip Foose after seeing him all over Overhaulin. One of the best shows ever that has made the best cars on the planet. I don't think there is anything better than him. Does he have a website or something?

and yes...great thread!

I was thinking there should be some threads already existing on chip foose. I dont miss a single episode of 'overhauling' on travel and living. I always thought DC in india would replace chip foose. But that was a fake thought. The designs done by DC are very ugly and way below average when we look at the works done by foose. The pictures above dont do justice to the works of Chip. These dont even come in the best 50 done by his talent. I will search my photo albums when I get some freetime !

I have been a fan since I saw Overhaulin' for the first time... amazing stuff! And he even does custom alloys. This guy can work wonders with an old car.

He customizes everything in a car ! No exaggerations ! Total body design is worked on paper first, thats an amazing work progress to see on TV. It looks better than real photographs of a car. People who watch 'overhauling' will agree with me. Then he cuts his own designed alloys under the same roof ! He also does customized metal embloms/logos for the car. Then the paint job is directly superwised. ICE is done by part of the team work. Leather works are done under direct supervision. Add anything else to the work schedule, but all in 6 days flat !!!

Working on a brand new car body is a totally different game. Chip does majority of his works on scraps or very old cars with no market value. But the 6th day outcome will challenge any showroom vehicle.

Those who are not familiar with the show, please start watching, you will be addicted soon and will be a die-hard fan of this guy ! "American Choppers" is another serial that comes on Travel & Living (sunday 10pm) for bike fans ! A must see programe.

Overhaulin is not Chip Foose alone is it?? Its more like a group of people who specialize in diff stuff..

The way this guy designs the mods on paper first is just awesome, what ideas and what designs!!!!
