How does a hot-rod legend maintain his reputation - and his sanity - while running a multimillion-dollar family business? From the producers of American Chopper comes American Hot Rod, a peek into the life of famous hot-rod builder and designer Boyd Coddington and his crew. This 13-episode series goes behind-the-scenes as the guys go flat-out to build three classic cars: the first is a classic 1956 Chevy two-door, salvaged from the junkyard and rebuilt with classic hot-rod looks and 21st-century technology. The second is a one-of-a-kind aluminium-steel Boyd Coddington original, built from the ground up, and the third is a reproduction of a classic 1932 hot-rod open-engine Ford coupe. Along the way, you'll get to know Boyd; his sons; his wife, who helps Boyd run the shop; his ex-wife, who runs his accounting department; his publicist, who tries to keep his schedule straight; and the rest of the crazy Coddington hot-rod team! And, of course, you'll catch all the drama, tension, comedy and frustration that come to the fore as the guys race to complete their classic cars amid looming deadlines and constant complications!
