Default Hot Rod legend Boyd Coddington passes away.

One of the greatest hot rod legends Boyd Coddington passed away at the age of 63.

Breaking: Hot Rod Legend Boyd Coddington Dies at 63

I used to watch his hot- rod show on Discovery and his work was just exemplary.

The hot rod industry will miss a great personality.

Along with Indian Larry, this is another legend that'll be missed.

Never was a fan of the show, have been a fan of his work though. He knew how to design and make those real hot-rods.

RIP Boyd.

We have lost a true legend.

I wonder what will happen to this project.

Sad to hear this news.
Loved his rods, especially the one featured in the ZZ Top video. Was a 30's, Red Ford/Chevy coupe.
RIP Boyd.

Very sad news for enthusiasts around the world......RIP Boyd. My condolences to his family.


Even I was eager to see just how he would manage to save that Belvedere. We can now only dream about what might have been.
