    Although i kind of like American hot rod Boyd and Duane are both jerks. I know that some of it is set up and with editing they maybe getting a raw deal but there still jerks. Boyd is insensitive to his employees needs and draws to many strange conclutions and then huffs and puffs. Duane is just a downright jerk with no people skills and i believe only a marginal skill level. These short comings are masked by his belligerent manners. threatening workers with being fired or beatings is nuts, learn your workers needs and feed into them. Then you can draw out of them what you need,also pitch in and do it in a positive way. Not you screw up now i have to make it right. The Bluebear thing had to be a set up, i just can't believe thats how they opperate. And duane with the intern thats the reaction of a jackass worried about someone learning then taking his job.I think the rest of the guys are OK

    Part of the appeal of Orange County Choppers

    is the fights. The Boyd crew is just trying to fit in. I love hot rods, but I think all them hot rod shows are lame. And the "we have to work 24/7 because of the deadline" is BS. I guarantee if I called Boyd and said I need a car in 6 weeks he'd just laugh and say "Maybe next February!!!!" All for the show.

    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    Boyd + Duane =Jerks

    Orange County Choppers:

    The best shows are the ones that Mikey makes a really
    sensitve,(read funny) comment to his dad. An example would be the show about Pauly arriving late for the Easter egg hunt. The old man is his doing his usual ranting and Mikey suggest's that he (the old man) should show some compassion for Pauly.

    I was watching AHR the other day and they pulled a 65' GT Mustang from a barn and it started right up after getting it out of the barn. It was covered with old blankets and dirt and hay like it had been in there for several years, how in the hell could that battery still have juice to start that car and I'm sure the gas was still good.

    I can't watch AHR, I want everyone ot quit on the Boyd guy, but I'd watch to see bluebaer get canned, he needed it. Shows like that piss me off people being jerks to each other. That and the way the employees are such slackers showing up whenever they feel like it,etc.

    I love those two shows myself. Love em. It might be edited to the hilt, and some of the main ideas of the shows might be a little to TV, but the arguements, the way guys do this, that. I beleive it's real. And it's great.

    Who said raided? What did he get raided for??
