Sad news

Wasn't a great fan of his style of cars but he no doubt took the hot rod industry to a new level.

Will be missed

may your soul go to Chevy Heaven. :(

Oh come on....he wasn't THAT bad!

Quite shocking news really he was only 63. Sad to hear it. I've watched his shows loads of times, I didn't think much of the way his staff were treated on occasion but no doubt his impact on the US Hot Rod world was huge.

He did a lot to bring customised cars to the masses around the world with his unique style of builds - The Boydster etc.

Definite loss to the Petrol Head community.

What a sad loss :-(

He also gave Chip Foose and Jesse James their start in life???

Agree with Nobby, man management a bit suspect, but who can tell with clever editing and it made the show "interesting".

Sadly missed I guess,what a dragon his ex wife was! :rolleyes:

Will be sadly missed.
I always watched the programmes, and still watch the re runs.
One of the Kings of Hot Rods...

If Heaven is half the place we are led to believe it is then Boyd will be laughing his ass off with his foot to the floor. I hope he is.;) Sad loss.

AS his website says, every cloud is him doing a "Burnout" :cool:

Shit,that is really bad news,i aint been on here for quite some time now since my favourite Bruv Osgood got banned and booted,that really has shocked me,what a great shame and he died over a month ago and only now know. Just remember chaps 63 is young to die and i hope it shakes a few of you to realise that life is for living make the most of it.
