If you cant ride in the front with me then fall to the back. If you cant ride in the back then give it up.

Damn, that sucks. I really didn't care for the show that much because it seemed to be too scripted. They followed the formula of "American Chopper" too closely. But that man could sure build some beautiful cars. Great loss.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

Sad to see him go. Talk about a legend in the Hot Rod buisness.

Sad to hear and he could indeed design some cool cars.

Although, from the show, it seems like he was kind of an ass. Like mentioned earlier, these pos reality shows are scripted/edited to show the tension, turmoil, etc. and that might be part of it. But the fact that many of the original guys left the shop including the head painter/body man who went to work for Foose and how Coddington acted in general towards his workers makes me think he didn't give credit where it was due a lot of the time.

Sad, he was not the nicest of guys but he was a legend, and has built some very famous cars.

That's too bad. What did he die from? I didn't see it in the article.
