Anyone watching American Hotrod tonite? Aside from the 36 Ford Chev powered roadster/coupe, did anyone see the super super rare '32 Ford B400??? Read about that car years ago in a Rod mag, being originally found in Missouri or thereabouts, in it's original state. It has to be the same car, right down to the color-Brewster green. It was a low production # car to start with, let alone finding a nice one complete and orig. Too bad it's in Boyd's shop. The body style is called Landau.
Remember a kid from my hometown going to Coloradao for the summer and driving home a 31 A400. Didn't even know they existed until seeing it.

If he doesn't keep pi$$en off his help, he won't have a shop to keep screwing up nice iron...

Eventually all the good guys will get sick of all the BS and quit and Boyd and Dwayne will go back to bolting together Australian bodied chubby powered crapmobiles for the clueless rich.

Knew I was forgetting something on the B400 Duece. The picture of Bonnie & Clyde standing in front of a 32: it was a B400!! They had good taste in cars!

When was the last time Boyd actually worked on a car? In one episode I saw he helped out and drilled a hole for the steering column IN THE WRONG PLACE!

It's a shame the nice work done by the crew has Boyd's name on it.

Did you see the episode where Boyd put a part on the lathe to shorten it, didn't even have it close to being straight, wobble and cut should be his nickname, even that prick blueballs was rolling his eyes on that one.

Gotta bang out of that one shot where the two guys were working the door of the 36 coupdevert. They had an idiot board (sanding board) that was long enough to be used like two loggers sawing down a tree.

What I get out of that show is that those guys have better tools then I do. It help to engourage me to keep doing all the work I can myself.

That's true. I don't watch it because it's about Boyd. I pick up little tips here and there.

It's fun to watch the work. Frustrating, but fun.

I bet Duane has to wear a wig and sunglasses, or else he must get his ass kicked on a daily basis when he's out in public.

Actually there are some good folks on board at the "zoo". The new body guy's an old timer and seems to know his sh*t. Seems that the Rage Gold skinning of the panels is pretty commonplace. Can tell you that it is hard work. It was relatively easy to skin the top of the left fender on my 66 and a b*tch to sand it down to smoothness!! It ******* su****!! And talk about dust!! Cheez!! It did work though and a very small percentage remained. What I thought was a primo decklid was a psunami! An exaggeration, yes, but an afternoon's work for the prep guy at paint shop!! He covered a large area and left little after block sanding. It seems to be the only way to get a panel straight. Interesting to see the use of lead. It does have it's place and the new guy is pretty good at it. Actually, that 36 came out pretty good, considering what it was. The windshield and cowl were close to original but not a cigar. Doing the tops of those doors was good work.

Duane???? He's toned down a bit but I'd like to see him working for Paul Sr. at OCChopper!! Ol' senior would tear him a new one!!LMAO!!

I'm still mad at them for cutting the roof off of that 36 coupe to make it into a roadster.
