Pictures by Sean Spear Most people know Chip Foose from the popular Overhaulin’ show on the Velocity Channel. Car aficionados know Chip as the ground-breaking hot rod designer, Hot Rod Hall of Famer, and the visionary that made the Boyd Coddington show cars famous. His career accomplishments are too numerous to list (but you can catch a glimpse here). Fortunately, Chip invited members of the Motor Press Guild to his Foose Design shop. Our own Sean Spear was there to capture this gallery of what’s cookin’ and overhaulin’ at the famous Huntington Beach locale.
