If you like Wheeler Dealers then Fast N' Loud will be right up your street.
Motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufmann of the Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas travel the back roads, searching barns, swap meets and open fields of the USA for derelict classic cars to overhaul, restore and turn into cash.
To some the retro relics from '57 Chevys to '73 Trans Ams look like rust buckets but to this crew they're automotive gold...ready and waiting to be gunned back into life. Fast N' Loud follows Rawlings and Kaufmann as they return these derelict rides to their former glory and get them back on the road but not without putting their own spin on them first.
Once Richard has found the right motor and wheels and deals for a good price, it's back to the Garage to set the design plan and begin the teardown. Then, the major work begins. It's always a race against the clock to get these cars finished: time is money at Gas Monkey Garage and the quicker they finish their cars, the quicker they can get to auction.
But there's always some fun time worked into their crazy schedules, and no matter how nuts their day gets, you can bet you'll see some donuts in the driveway or a test drive of a great car.
In Fast N Loud, motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufman search the far-flung corners of America s southern states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Sometimes they ll find a rusty diamond requiring a complete overhaul, and at other times, a little work will transform a classic into a nice profit.
While the boys always make sure these cars are fast and loud, will their blood, sweat and beers translate into cold, hard cash?
Richard Rawlings, Aaron Kaufman and the Gas Monkeys are living a dream when they build a life-size Hot Wheels car. And what better car to build than one from the original ‘Sweet Sixteen’ set that started the entire Hot Wheels movement in 1968? After Richard discovered a ‘Sweet Sixteen’ Mattel toy that sold for north of six figures, he was motivated to build a Gas Monkey inspired life size version of the Hot Wheels car. Conspiring with Aaron, they decided to build the ‘Custom Corvette’, a car not only from the original Hot Wheels “Sweet Sixteen”, but also rumoured to have been based on the drawings of the original launch of the Corvette. This one of a kind car will have an exaggerated, mean stance, chromed engine, exhausts and fenders, big, bad wheels, custom interior, and an over the top glittering paint job. But as always, Richard and Aaron work feverishly down to the wire to get their latest awe-inspired creation finished on time.
It's testing times for the gang at the Gas Monkey Garage, if they are going to make money it's going to have to be full speed ahead for everyone.
In true Fast N Loud style there are some fabulous cars this season. We start off with Richard being hoodwinked by an old lady and her 64 Continental, he only just manages to bounce back from that and a 59 Apache turns up, which is more rust than metal. The pressure is tougher than ever when one of the crew quits, but that doesn't stop the guys from having some Christmas fun with the Teutuls.
It doesn't take them long to get back to business when Richard buys a 1968 Shelby Mustang, but it is when Richard and Aaron take on a 76 Bronco that they really are up against it, this project is more rust than retro and it is clear that they have taken on a real budget buster. With the Bronco over-budget and past deadline, Richard s patience (and wallet) are severely tested. A side trip to Vegas results in a cash injection and the super cool acquisition of Evel Knievel's Messerschmitt microcar. But when Richard gambles $400,000 on a banged up Ferrari F-40 he may have put the future of the garage and everyone who works there on the line.
Fast N' Loud motor mastermind Richard and mechanical prodigy Aaron are searching high and low for forgotten and neglected vintage cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Most assume these old classics, from '57 Chevys to '73 Trans Ams, are rust buckets – but to this crew, they're potential gold mines. Once Richard wheels and deals for a good price, the real work begins back at the garage, where the guys race against the clock to finish the job in time for auction.
