  1. dennis!!! saludos desde españ no es indiscreccion ,en que trabajas? por que tambien manejas pasta.

    bueno,gracias por esta serie magnifica.


  2. el mejor de todos los tv show de autos de todos los canales gas monkey son los mjores espero ver muchos capitulos por muchos años.. saludos desde Tucuman-Argentina..

  3. Richard & Dennis- i never saw it in person, but, a truck driver buddy/neighbor of mine in NYC told me once that he had a 1968 or a ’69 Camaro in his garage with six-hundred original miles on it! this dude wasn’t prone to BS. I still have not heard another example of such incredibly low mileage.( except for museums & dealerships etc) We parted ways a number of years ago but I would assume he still owns it.

  4. GMG: I’m getting up in the world finally–4-post American-made 7K lb. lift shipping this week. I should have it assembled & operational in my garage by weekend/ if all goes according to plan. Hey, it only took 60 years, but all those forays of sliding under trucks/cars are now history. Last week, after shimmeying under a CR-V i changed the oil & was just barely able to get the filter off–it was almost impossible to do–& really required a vehicle lift to adequately get to filter—Never say never but I paid my dues & will NEVER work in an unheated space w/o a lift up here in Ice Station Zebra aka upstate New Yawk!

  5. I like the timing of the comment …”we only work on CJs and Wranglers…” as the camera pans across the floor of the shop and shows a blue Grand Cherokee with fake wood trim on the sides; up on a lift.

  6. Does the next cannonball run start in New York or over seas? I would love to see you and Richard make another run after it. You have my email address if you can hit me up I’d like to see it.Even if I just sell t-shirts it’ll be worth it!

  7. Does anybody know who is the maker is of the rims that were on the 40″ tires that they put in front of the jeep in the last episode?

  8. I’m in love with sue!!! Can I get a t-shirt from her? I’ll pay off course,love the way she takes on the guys .good addition to the show. Thanks!

  9. Richard and dennis i heard dennis mention on one of the episodes that he would like to find a MAKO SHARK corvette well my father has a 71 REAL MAKO SHARK vette for sale please contact me thank you

  10. This is for Dennis Collins or Richard Rawlings, My name is Donald Farino, I recently reacquired my fathers 1928 Model AR Ford Pheaton. After a 35 yr. Storage fee was paid, I got it back!…He, my father, and I found this car sitting by and old barn in Junction City, KS. When I was just 10yrs. old. It was being used as a chicken coop ( body off on the ground and frame and fenders in the woods) For the price of building materials ($60) we hauled it off in the back of an old Rambler station wagon cut down to a pickup, the chicken farmer bought it from an old ford dealer back in 1930! It was carted off to our house where he and I did a quick frame off and stored it in the back garage until I could drive! Subsequently my father took I’ll and passed away shortly thereafter my mother soon followed. As lif went on the car remained in that garage until my brother moved for me to a oat storage in Kingston OK. I recently found out that the car was still there and got it back…granted it had a hefty storage bill but was willing to pay. You see this particular vehicle was the first car Henry FordANDhis son Edsel Ford designed and built together as the newest in a long line of Fords built since….again this vehicle was designed and marketed to the public as Fords new line of affordable cars for the poor man! The car was quickly designed and he produced only 250 of them it is quite rare AND if I must say as solid as the day it rolled off the assembly line in Nov. Of 1927 AS the first model A in 1928. I am interested in selling it but only to a car lover. It deserves the best of care and I’ve been a fan of gas monkey since first airing soooo! You guys get first crack….trust me, this is NOT a car you want to pass up…at least take a road trip and come see me I’m two yrs from you and am very keen on finishing this car. If anything it can be used as an advertising gimmick for the Ford dealers around the United States and abroad . if you decide to pass I am open to having you guys finish the restoration and if not you maybe you can bring along one who might be interested in the old girl……e-mail and I’ll give you my phone #……serious gas monkey fan….can I be on your show…..wink, wink…I like Cristi

We would love to have both you Richard, and all of the Gas Monkey guys come by and eat some of Langs Seafood, the best of the rest. Look us up. Cumberland Island National Seashore. We have available commercial property and great residential property available.

  12. How would you like to find this Aussie lady a Mustang I I as my everyday car and a Mustang 67 coupe in nice condition, we can detail both vehicles ourselves as my Partner has rebuilt mustangs, can’t find anything nice here, need tidy vehicles, not restored. PS love, love your show.

  15. My name is Steve Allen and I am a professional engine builder having built engines for some of the most notable drivers in NASCAR for the past 35 years. I currently hold the record for the largest upset in Busch Series history in NASCAR winning the Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway June 17, 2006 with David Gilliland as a rookie driver. Please look on youtube (David Gilliland wins Kentucky 2006) and watch and listen to the race reporters as they describe the last few laps of this great day. I share this with you to hopefully show just a little bit of my love for engine building and performance engine construction and would love to speak to you about providing your show with some of my engines in your builds. I watch your show all the time and have watched as you have become involved in several different forms of racing which brings me to the intent of me speaking to you in person if at all possible. I would love to have your help and logo on our own racing in the Super Late Model Series of dirt. We can provide you a great amount of exposure and excitement to the Gas Monkey Garage brand and in return provide you with some of the greatest engines you have ever seen. Please allow me just a few minutes of your time to explain how we can be very good working together in a world of what we both love badass horsepower and cars. Google Steve Allen Racing and look on Linkedin and facebook to see some videos and winning projects we are very proud of. 828-837-4871

  16. Good to see you again, Dennis..big shout out from JW Marrs’ old lady, Betty! Glad to see you doing so well and congrats on reaching famedom!

  17. Down to earth video.

    Show Idea For Gas Monkey Garage, Richard Rawlings & Dennis Collins (Collins Bros Jeep).

    My next door neighbor lost her husband at the young age of 47 to cancer almost a year ago. Her husband had bought a Jeep Wrangler with the thoughts of rebuilding it with his 10 year old son, but he died very quick after being diagnosed with cancer. The Jeep was sitting in the backyard so people were stopping by wanting to buy the Jeep, but she did not want to sell because it was supposed to be a father / son project… well she starting thinking about selling it to me & my son so that it we could do a father / son project, but that does not feel right to me – living right next door to the boy. I had a thought that maybe your show maybe in conjunction with Collins Bros Jeep could do a pimp my ride sorta thing for this family. We live in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan but, I could find a way to get the Jeep to Dallas, Texas to your shop if that helps. I’m NOT looking for fame or anything I am looking to help my awesome neighbor and her young child. Please let me know if this is something you can do and/or if there’s anything questions that you might have.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.
