FOR OVER FIVE-DECADES BO HUFF BUILT some of the coolest kustoms you've ever seen, and at the 33rd Annual KKOA Lead Sled Spectacular in Salina, Kansas, we had a late-nite Interview Session to talk about some of his newest rides.
THE FIRST ONE WE COVERED is this super-wild, higly-detailed 1936 Ford 2dr. Sedan...lovingly called a "humpback". This one Bo mentioned to me the year before, but he'd finally gotten it all-together, and it's Special name was "CORENE" ! He explains why he named it that too !!
ALSO, I was always asked about Bo's health, and while he looked great as we spent most of the weekend together, I knew he'd had recent Chemo treatments in those days and wanted to know how he was holding up...which he answered with a positive response.
SO, listen to Bo's cool story about his '36, and you'll hear his passion for "Corene"...it is one dynamite machine ! JK

BO HUFF WAS A GREAT FRIEND, and was one of the nicest, most talented builder's to ever light-up a torch. He went through a lot with many health problems the last few years of his life, and, sadly, passed away on August 4th, 2015.
We usually talked to each other every week or so, and, even during his illness, his spirit and desire to keep cranking out great customs still ignited him to not only want to "raise the bar", but to "set the bar" for others to follow.
I'm so glad that we were able to do all of the Interviews that we did during the year's, because now Bo's great stories about his life, his cars, and his passion for everything to do with Rods & Customs, can be heard right here on the HOF Legends Site for all to learn from and enjoy !
R.I.P., my friend. Like you always said, we were like "family".
