Can you folks imagine what Chip Foose (as seen on rides or overhaulin) is going to be able to do with the Kappa platform? Two-tone paint, big wheels, fat tires, and best of all those great paint jobs by Charlie. I look forward to seeing what he will do with it.

I had no idea he actually worked with modern iron as well. I've only seen Overhaulin', and I'm quite impressed with what he can do with a rag-tag crew, a week, and a neglected musclecar!

I have seen Chip Foose driving a modern era modified t-bird on the Overhaulin' show.

Foose is just like West Coast Customes. His primary business is doing specialised new cars. He just gets paid to do the Overhaulin show for TV just like WCC.

He makes his money doing a lot of different stuff. I imagine he's most famous, in car circles at least, for his Riddler award winning hotrods. His wheel line brings in some serious dough too.

Man, when Charlie told Boyd he was leaving to go to work with Chip Foose, did Boyd freak out or what? I wonder what the history is between Coddington and Foose.

Anybody know?

I know Foose worked "under" Boyd at one time, and left. Not sure about the circumstances involved but I seem to remember something about Foose being "kept down by the man".

It's hard to tell how much is acting and editing. All I know is that from what they show, Boyd is too old school and a lousy boss. He either pays VERY well or there is a lot we just don't see.
