Besides his uncanny resemblance to SNL's Jason Sudeikis, Chip Foose looks like an average American dude. He has wispy blond hair, droopy basset hound eyes, and a rounded beer gut. His monotone voice is unspectacular, often leaving audiences listless and confused. He dresses almost exclusively in black jeans, cheap sneakers and a faded T-shirt. However, Chip's unremarkable image lies in contrast to his growing reputation as one of the most highly regarded hot-rod designers of his generation. His designs have been featured on production vehicles by all three major American auto manufacturers, and his custom rods have consistently received critical acclaim. With his 48th birthday fast approaching (Oct. 13), we thought we'd send our good wishes by offering a look back at 10 of Chip's most jaw-dropping creations.
