Foosed' Over
22 June 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Chip Foose is a very creative and sensitive artist. I've watched many dozens of these shows. I saw the one in which Chip's own truck project was "Foose'd" with his father in charge.

The problem is that Chip Foose is at times a rather self-indulgent and self-impressed artist, taking great liberty with his creativity. In at least 3 episodes I've seen his gleaming smiling face beam as he decides to chop off the body top (roof, uprights, windows) of a vehicle. They exist for a purpose, Chip-- rain! And I'm sure some of the people don't live in houses with garages, either.

In one episode the "victim" expressly stated that his hope and plans for the vehicle was "I just want to restore it to how it originally looked." Chip, however, decided to chop the top off that 1956 Chevy Bel Air 4-door. If it had been me, I'd be screaming and demanding, "Where the Foose is my roof?!?!?!?" I probably would sue Chip Foose, the show and everyone involved in this self-indulgent liberty of creativity after (illegally) stealing my vehicle. It doesn't matter who was the set-up person-- spouse, child, parent, best friend-- they don't have legal rights to MY vehicle.

On the positive side, it's cool to see that these people get all sorts of goodies and candy in the work that's done-- the sup ed-up engines, the incredible sound systems (despite the fact that they frequently waste all the trunk storage space with massive speaker systems), air conditioning in vehicles that predated that invention, and many other bonuses. But if I were the owner and had my heart set on restoring my PERSONAL PROPERTY to my OWN SPECIFICATIONS, I'd be screaming mad.

At times Chip Foose is highly creative. At times Chip's extravagant and self-indulgent "artistic liberties" give us a new phrase, "I was Foosed over."
