From the producers of American Chopper comes American Hot Rod, a peek into the life of legendary hot-rod builder and designer Boyd Coddington and his crew.
This series documents the construction of three classic cars: The first is a classic 1956 Chevy two-door, salvaged from the junkyard and rebuilt with classic hot-rod looks and 21st-century technology. The second is a one-of-a-kind aluminum-steel Boyd Coddington original, built from the ground up. And the third is a reproduction of a classic 1932 hot-rod open-engine Ford coupe.
Along the way, you'll get to know Boyd; his sons; his wife, who helps Boyd run the shop; his ex-wife, who runs his accounting department; his publicist, who tries to keep his schedule straight; and the rest of the Coddington hot-rod team.
And, of course, you'll also become familiar with the drama, tension, comedy and frustration that come to the fore as the guys race to complete their classic cars amid looming deadlines and constant complications.
The Coddington crew shifts into overdrive to finish the Bonneville racer and the Rocky Walker Bellahaye. But after problems with fabrication, and a major development with the motor, the build grinds to a screeching halt.
