What a shame. Boyd was a legend and will truly be missed. My most heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Jo and to his ex-wife and the entire Coddington family. Godspeed, Boyd. You'll be missed.

What an amazing car-smith. His creations were absolutley beautiful. The lines, colors, and style was beyond anyone. I wonder what the cause was. He seemed very healthy on the shows? RIP Boyd!

What a loss. Cause of death could have been anything. He used to be very heavy.
Anyway my favorite Boyd car was the Smoothster. And his show was really fun and enlightening. My husband met him once and shook his hand. That memory has stuck with him for many years.
He will be missed, but I am sure his designs will live on and inspire many more hot rod guys (and us chicks too). RIP.

WOW! Can't say I knew a lot aobut the man, but I've watched the show & he sure is a master in the art of the hot rod. His talent will surely be missed.
On the bright side - that great "rock band in the sky" finally has someone to design a proper tour bus.
