Jo Coddington

Jo Coddington

Industry Spokesperson / TV Personality

Jo has always been a car girl; it’s in her DNA. She grew up seeing her dad’s passion for racing, hot rods and off-roading, while helping him at his gas station and mechanical shops. At the age of 6, Jo began racing go-karts, later advancing to racing sand rails with her dad and two other friends under Arizona Competition Incorporated.

Jo’s love for hot rods continued, which led to her meeting her late husband, Boyd Coddington. Jo was driving her Corvette on the 91 Freeway in California when the right front tire blew out, which was on none other than a Boyd Coddington billet wheel. Later at a car show, mutual friends introduced them, and then informed Boyd that Jo would be excellent for product testing since she “drove hard.” What started out as a friendship between a “car girl” and a “car guy” eventually turned into a wonderful marriage.

Jo, as General Manager for her late husband’s hot rod business, had the opportunity to share her passion of cars with her best friend every day at work, as well as on the television show American Hot Rod. She also has appeared on the television shows American Icon, and Detroit Muscle; as well as on Wisconsin’s Hot Rod Radio. In addition, Jo was the host for The Sunday Drive, a web-based video podcast. Jo has, on and off for the past 20 years , traveled to Australia for Pete’s Hot Rod Shop Annual Moonshine Run where, on behalf of International AERO, she awards the Jo’s Choice Award. The love and respect she has for custom car builds has “opened the door” yet again in 2019, as Jo is a celebrity judge on the TV show Wrench Wars.

Jo’s passion for the automotive industry, its lifestyle, and culture, continues to grow with every person she meets and each event she attends , as “Once a “car girl” always a “car girl."
