Friday, October 30 Front Page >> Random Rants >> American Hot Rod - Duhwane and Boyd are crazy

May 25, 2005, 3:10pm

I'm a so so fan of "regular joe" reality shows like Monster House (what the heck happened to it - it's not on Discovery Canada anymore!), Monster Garage, and American Chopper.

I don't so much like American Hot Rod. Mainly because of the owner (Boyd Coddington) and the shop manager, Duane.

Here's Boyd's management style:

"We're family"
"Uh. Yeah"
"Call me Mr. Fuck You"
"You're fired."
"You broke my heart"
"We're family. Listen to my stupid attempt at motivation"
"You've got six weeks to build a 14 week car"
"We're letting you go"
"We're family"
"Brings a tear to my eye"
"These guys have no respect for me..." (and the fact I've gained my rep on having some stellar staff, not my own skillz).

Duane's management style:

"Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you. Shut up. Fuck you. Now get to work."

I don't think Duane has many brain cells. And he's not a very ethical guy. On a recent episode, he talked about being kicked out of his girlfriend's house permanently. "We had a communication problem. I didn't communicate to her about my other girlfriend, and that ended up being a problem." and he laughs. Sigh. what a luser.

The show needs to die a fast death, and Boyd needs another bankruptcy (which he'll no doublt blame on the "crappy" employees below him). I'm not the only one who thinks this way.

I do like one of the suggestions in that forum. Get all the guys that Boyd and Duane have pissed off or fired together, and have a build off against Boyd and crew. My money's on Charley, Bluebear et al.
