Signature Series Twisted Columbus

The latest wheel to hit our Signature Series this summer is a twisted version of our popular Columbus wheel. We put a slight twist to the Columbus to give it a different look and we are happy with the results. Shown here in a brushed and charcoal finish. This first set will be featured on a Boydster 1 project currently in the works. You can see these wheels in person at the Goodguys 19th PPG Nationals in Columbus Ohio in two weeks. The Twisted Columbus can be made in a variety of finish combinations. Available in sizes 17-22″ to fit most 5 lug applications. We offer a range of widths to the backspace of your specification. Like the rest of the Signature Series the Twisted Columbus is 100% made in the USA. For more information give us a call at 866-612-2693. DSC_0571 DSC_0574 boyd

2014 Good Guys Del Mar and Boyd Coddington Memorial Award

Another great Del Mar Good Guys show. Definitely one of the best venues for a California car event.  A stone’s throw to the beach, beautiful weather, and as always some of the best cars in So Cal come out for the event. Gregg and I were excited once again to hand out our father’s memorial award. This year the award went to a 1940 Pontiac woody owned by a member of the DuPont family. The award was accepted on behalf of Mr. DuPont by the shop that built this beautiful woody, Hot Rods and Custom Stuff out of Escondido, CA. This car caught our eye right off the bat. It’s rare to see these Pontiac woodies and to see one built to this level was amazing. The work done by Randy Clark and his team is just amazing. Interesting enough that the winner of the first Boyd Coddington Memorial award, Andy Meeh, does all the paint work at Hot Rods and Custom Stuff. Andy and his family drove the woody through winners circle to accept the award.  I was happy this year to share the experience with my two daughters, Jenna and Stella. Once again a great time and we look forward to next year. 1-DSC_0557 1-DSC_0567 1-DSC_0573 1-DSC_0575 1-DSC_0579

Good Guys West Coast Nationals 2013

This past weekend we attended the Good Guys West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton, CA. This is probably the best show on the west coast and is a must attend for any hot rodder in the western US. This year celebrated the 27th anniversary of this show and it definitely seemed like the biggest one to date. Duane Mayer of American Hot Rods and myself took the trip up to Pleasanton with the Vern Luce Coupe and our wheel display in tow. Good Guys set us up with a really nice spot in front of winners circle and we were lucky enough to have some really cool Boyd cars at our booth. David Lozano brought out the 32 Sedan my dad built at the Orange Ave shop for Don Smith. David takes amazing care of this car and it still turns heads. One of the best looking sedans and one of my favorite Boyd cars. Jerry Ruskin brought out his 33 Vicky and displayed it at our booth. This 33 Vicky was started at the hot rod shop on Monroe St but only got to the primer stage before it was sold. Having this Vicky parked at our booth next to the coupe was something to see. They looked like a reunited brother and sister sitting there side by side. Saturday’s attendance was insane. The busiest I have ever seen it. We had our new 2013 wheel line up there along with some new additions and we talked to tons of people and handed out tons of catalogs. While I am at the car show working it doesn’t really seem like it. Catching up with old friends, talking to spectators and potential customers make the whole time enjoyable. I had a great time hanging out with Duane and watching him interact with the fans. We’ll be back again next year. Special thanks to Dave Lozano, Jerry Ruskin, John and Caroline Hill, Gary and Wendy Brown, and the Good Guys organization.

Rambler………. Brockmeyer Style

Eric Brockmeyer’s Rambler American sedan was started towards the end of 2004 and finished in July of 2011. Those 7 years were well worth the wait because Eric’s little project came out exactly as he planned and he has some awards to show for it. I remember talking to Eric back in 2005 about doing up some wheels for the Rambler. We were just about to take the Junk Yard Dog into a cast version and he wanted to have one of the first sets built. Eric knew right from the beginning what he wanted to accomplish and once he put pencil to paper he decided to take it over to Link’s Rod Shop in Heath, OH to start the build. Along the way H and H Autobody did the paint and bodywork and Weber’s Custom Interiors finished the nice black leather interior. The Rambler sports a 55 354 Hemi dual quad. A set of 20×10 and 18×7  custom painted Junk Yard Dogs puts the power to the pavement. Debuted at Good Guys Columbus last summer and won Goodguys Columbus- builders choice and Street Rodder top 100. Other awards include NSRA nats Louisville- Builders Choice, Goodguys Indy- Snap-On Innovator award and NSRA Nats Tampa- builders choice.
