Gas Monkey Hits TRIM Party

Back in March 2010 Aaron and I hit a party at the TRIM warehouse in St. Louis (love their clothes) and hung out with a few hundred people for a night of live music from alt-country rockers Trigger 5 and Miles of Wire.

Roller Girls, Rolling Rock, Bacardi and a transvestite hooker helped make it a super swell evening.

    • at first i must say the art form you guys are so down to earth in its simplicity but then you have yto add money which really ruins it but as artist your fantastic and the experince that formed you both is one in a lifetime yea it was good that you broke the record but then what was next how could you top that and finally you did with monkey you seemed to slow down and really reached back to your root or shall i say love. i love watching you thanks

  3. Love the cars, like the show, nice not to see all the crome and money throughing at a project, I got to where I hate California’s with perfect hair! Thank God for Texas Rust is cool. keep doing it I’ll keep watchin!

  4. My wife and I would have bought the 53 Chevy so quick. If you still have it my we would lay out the 3000 so fast, we live in Mesquite. We Love you show call if you still have it is great.

  5. Do you have a list of cars that are for sale? In a few years if I had a small budget of around $5000.00 can you build a Ford 5 window or a Tudor for me for around that price?

    • We’ll have our inventory on the website very soon, Martel. And we can do projects for $5000 – it just depends on a lot of variables. We’d have to talk…but not until after September 1, when we finish filming this season.

  6. I have some cars you might be interested in! And I’m always finding them in tree lines on farms and from people that just know me. I have been cleaning up a 29acre salvage called Bonnie & Clyde’s in Kechi Ks for three years at the same time a warehouse I stored and rebuilt cars in had to be purchased or i had to move and so i moved everything out to this place i was cleaning, now im being forced to move again and I have no place to store my early ford collection as well as all these other great cars that where at the salvage that I have been cleaning!there are two 64 Lincoln convertibles & two 63 hard tops all 4 suicide & they are all last tagged Arizona 1974. Well if you want an interesting story I have one about the land these cars are on the town ship that wants this place gone and the story of a family who used to live on the land when the house they were living in blew up from a gas leak and leveled the house with Clyde in the basement ! And the city of Ketchi forcing them out of business then like 700 plus cars sat on this property for 15 years being stolen looted and damaged by vandals until I started cleaning it up to change the image and give it new breath but like I said now kochi is running me off! My name is Jaime lambert and I’m a car collector and fabricator that wants to sale it all off now! 316-806-5160

  26. Good show to promote interest in car building. Need to promote safety in shop. Need to wear
    (safety Glasses) when cutting with a chop saw. Safety Glasses are not very stylish but a trip to the emerg to remove steel chip from your eye sux. You guys set an example for the younger generation be it good or bad.

  27. I’m interested in the silver 57 Chevy you have had in the back ground of your shows. Is it for sale? If it is for sale, what condition is it in & price? We had an orginal silver 57 when I was growing up. Love the show, presently working on a 57 Dodge Short bed all orginal v8 pickup. Would love to have you guys complete it, but can’t go that route right now. Keep up the good work.

  28. Whats up with the trim industries web site richard plugged? I placed a order with my credit card info.. never shipped.. the phone number listed on the web site goes to someone who has no clue about trim industries at all.. the contact link doesnt work either. Nervous because they have all my credit info. Whats up?

  29. Hi Monkeys!
    Love the show,inspiring my little petrol head sons (19&22) to build and create their own cars and bikes. Why not do a few more bikes? Give us a mail if your’re ever down in St Tropez,South of France and we’ll show you around the petrol scene going on down here!
    Keep up the good work!

  30. I have been a fan of your show since the beginning . Really like the concept and the personalities keep up the work.
    On another note I have a 57 chevy gasser saturday night cruiser. This car was custom built and profesionaly built. If money wasn not the issue and you wanted the ultimate cruiser in the 60’s this would be the car. complete ground up build with 392 hemi and fender well headers. What could be better than a Hemi in a 57 chevy. I have put less than 500 miles on it and interested in saleing are trading.
