Fan Profile – Gas Monkey Fans from Mar del Plata, Argentina – 5,500 Miles from Dallas, TX

Dario De Francesco, his dad Ruben and friends Raul and Jorge made the trip to Dallas, TX after the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) trade show in Las Vegas.  As with many other Fast N’ Loud fans from other countries, they needed to see Gas Monkey Garage in person.  Thank goodness for Google Translate, because Dario and friends spoke very little English.

They’re all big fans of Richard Rawlings and they love how he wheels and deals in each show.  Dario said that American Muscle Cars, like Mustangs and Camaros, have huge followings in Argentina.  His friends and family, in their hometown of Mar del Plata in the Buenos Aires Province, also love Fast N’ Loud and they’re appreciative of how much they all learn as Aaron and the Monkeys execute complex builds.


We’re so happy to host fans from South America and continue to see how far Gas Monkey Garage fans are willing to travel to come see us.

Muchas Gracias to Mario and all of our fans in Argentina.
