RIP Boyd..

Guys not to get off on a SOAP BOX of anykind....but bottom line 'We ain't here as long as we think were gonna be"...

Live and Love life cause it could be gone in a flash...

losing someone high profile like Boyd ( at not such an old age) is stiff dose of reality for many of us.

Agreed, that your time on here is very limited. With that being said... Boyd was an arrogant ass to his guys. He had talent I wish I had or I could only have dreamed of. His visions were surreal. But his business and employee treatment was something left to be desired. I realize he was doing alot of his antics for tv,but I will say this..if anyone ever disrespected me on national tv like he has (or his Jackass Duane does) he'd be looking to modify his teeth!!! Sorry for the loss of a true car guy,ingenious detail man,but not for the loss of a common arrogant person..Too bad he let the limelight overwhelm him in his career.
