A few months ago we reported on a title-fraud scheme that hot rod builder Boyd Coddington was implicated in. Now he has copped a plea to a misdemeanor charge for submitting counterfeit vehicle titles to the California state DMV. He was forced to pay $3,000 restitution and must perform 160 hours of community service. Fake titles were used to id cars as older or less expensive than they really are so owners could pay less in registration fees and sales tax and to escape air pollution regulations. If the pompousness he displays on his TV show or screwed debtors in his last bankruptcy wasn't enough to make us not care about Boyd, this certainly will help.
