Boyd Leon Coddington (August 28, 1944 - February 27, 2008) was an American hot rod designer, the owner of the Boyd Coddington Hot Rod Shop and star of American Hot Rod on TLC.
Coddington grew up in Rupert, Idaho, reading all the car and hot rod magazines he could, and got his first car (a 1931 Chevrolet truck) at age 8. He attended machinist trade school and completed a three-year apprenticeship in machining. In 1968, he moved to California building hot rods by day and working as a machinist at Disneyland during the night. He soon became known for building unique hot rods and in 1977 he opened his own shop, Hot Rods by Boyd, in Cypress, California. He realized quick success: his first major customer was Vern Luce whose car, a 1933 coupe, won the Al Slonaker Award at the 1981 Oakland Roadster show.
Coddington was known[by whom?] for his clean, elegant designs combining old school with what was to be known as the "Boyd Look". It featured radically transformed vintage styling, but re-engineered around modern and scratch-built components at the customer's preference.
One of Coddington's signature innovations were his custom-fabricated alloy wheels, typically machined from a solid billet (block) of aluminum (an industry first). Together with John Buttera, Boyd pioneered this 'billet' machined look and applied it not only to wheels but broadly throughout the car.
In 1988, Coddington founded Boyd's Wheels, Inc., to manufacture and market these custom billet wheels. His popularization of machined billet wheels had broad impact, eventually spreading out of the hot rod world to enormously influence the popularity of custom rims within hip-hop culture. Among his many innovative designs was the ability to produce unique designs of wheels known as One-Off wheels.
The "CadZZilla" was commissioned by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and designed by Larry Erickson . It is acclaimed as one of the great expressions of automotive customization . Columnist Gray Baskerville calle
