  1. Not for me.. I have a friend in Oklahoma with a paint & body place. Been struggling for years. Great work maybe it’s him? I don’t know, but well maybe you’d be interested??

  2. Hello we have a shop in Holiday Fl and we build accessory parts for the Polaris Slingshot like our roof systems, Tubular swingarms, And a new Quad kit that is direct bolt in. It is Formula 1 inspired push rod suspension. We have a CNC milling machine and a CNC bender. Tig welders and other fabrication equipment. The Shop is owned by Charles Lee and myself and we have 1 employee Brad and a dog that has enough personality to warrant his own show. We do allot with very little in this shop. Charlie builds these racing FPV quads and he shot this Video of our shop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5LHPAgWr6Q We also did this Barefoot waterski winch conversion for an R1 a while back https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWm090sljKQ I did the barefooting and Charles was on the bike this was the first time we tried it! check it out and give me a call.

  3. I’m a 21 year old entrepreneur. I started flipping cars last August because Richard Rawlings inspired me. I’ve sold 10 so far and my plan is to flip 30 this year and then invest into my own shop. I’m currently just working out of my garage and I’m not sure if I could qualify to be on the show but it is worth a shot. Thanks for your time can’t wait to see the new show and if there’s any way I could be involved that would be awesome.

  4. Richard,
    I am a big fan of Aaron’s, OK I’ll admit, I think you’re pretty cool too. We actually met at the Celebrity Bartenders gig in Addison a couple years ago. I am good friends with your Sound Guru Lee Russell at LIVE. I ran the sound wiring with Lee at the Lewisville Lake house. What a mess that was..Plus, I am right around the corner from Dennis’ Jeep shop so even if we don’t garner any interest in this opportunity, hell drop by and I’ll buy you a beer or two.

    Iron Horse Classics is right behind me and they always have some awesome cars to ogle, too.
    Anyway, my small business does wraps, like the 360 guys you’re so fond of. I like those guys, their DOC BAND for children is an awesome “give back” to the community.

    With a little exposure there is great potential for my company to grow. I am (NDA to follow) about to launch a side enterprise to enhance my core business and that may well play into this concept.

    Whatever the entertainment value is that your looking for we would love to give it a try! Maybe an angle is to follow some of my customers around to see how they grow once they’ve wrapped a van or truck.

    Ironically, one of my customers’ house was wiped out in the tornado, and his company does Disaster Response Roofing and construction. He is living the nightmare his customers usually do. I put tornadoes into his wrap design this past summer!

    Surely bored you guys by now, so I am gonna go “get me some of that”, whatever that might be next. I think it’s home cooked taco’s and beer!
    Monkey On, We’ll be in the jungle all day!

  5. I don’t own a shop. My dad was a mechanic for years and years I would love to be cast as side kick/fish out water who isn’t so out water. I know how business are ran and have success in social media ect….hit me up #GYSOT

  6. We are a print shop in so cal. I know this is not car related but we do a lot of custom work and I know Richard owned a large print shop previously. The Boss is a great guy, just need that extra push! He care about his staff very much and like to enjoy life!

  7. Hello,im not a shop owner however i wanted to offer my company’s services,if you should come to Kansas City,Mo. specializing in
    On-site K.C.Style BBQ!
    Thank you

I paint anything that holds a scratch pretty much..hope to hear from you..

  13. Love the show but never see enough of the interiors and such would like to work for you and eliminate the lady who says you are cheap and bring her junk. thanks jack

  14. You might look @ Indepth Customs in Lewisville,TX, they are owned by a female named Shelbee Lee but are also a husband and wife team. They do custom paint on motorcycle and other misc auto & trucks parts and wall art. Matt runs the shop and the painter and does the customs builds while his wife runs the office and books. they are customer focused. Shelbee is 6th generation Lewisville and Matt is Harley Davidson cerified.

  15. I’m a small shop in need of repairs to my place,it’s an old gas station and I can’t open up till their made. I have a good word of mouth reputation and fix problems on people’s cars that were sent to shops and they got burned. I do cars from the 30’s up. I’m a one man show. Sometimes my friend Dave helps me out..

  16. HOW ABOUT DOING A SHOW ON THE 1934 FORD BONNIE & CLYDE CAR,I WOULD LOVE TO BE JUST AN EXTRA IN THE SHOW,IF NOT, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE A COOL SHOW ON THE GANGSTERS CAR FROM WEST DALLAS I ALSO THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME VINTAGE BICYCLES AND HAVE SOME OF THEM DISPLAYED WITH YOUR RESTORED CARS & TRUCKS THEY GIVE IT ALL A COOL LOOK.,I LIVE NEAR NEWPORT KY,BACK IN THE 1940’S IT WAS A BONNIE & CLYDE TOWN KNOWN FOR THE TOMMY GUNS.

    I AM ALSO GLAD TO SEE MONSTER GARAGE OFF THE AIR,I TOOK A TRIP TO LA,YEARS AGO AND WENT TO LONG BEACH TO VISIT THE MONSTER GARAGE,WHAT CLOWNS THEY WERE, THEY HAD NO CLASS LIKE GAS MONKEY GARAGE!

    I WAS TOLD BY A FRIEND OF JESSE JAMES THAT THEY DID LIKE PEOPLE EVEN STOPPING BY AND CHECKING OUT THEIR PLACE,THEY WERE SO RUDE THEY SHUT THE GARAGE DOOR WHEN I WAS OUTON THE STREET 100′ FEET AWAY ON A PUBLIC SIDEWALK. I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHY THEY WERE EVEN SELLING T SHIRTS, IF THEY DON’T WAN’T FANS,JESSE MUST HAVE WENT BACK TO SELLING DRUGS OUT OF HIS MOTORCYCLE GAS TANKS,LOL

    JUST A THOUGHT!

  17. Richard/Aaron…

    My passion for automotive restoration and fabrication/ repair started in my father’s garage back when I was only 5 years old and the fire never stopped burning. Now 43 years old, I have an even hotter fire burning to create, fabricate, restore and repair cool muscle cars…

    I am currently restoring (from the ground up) a 68 and 69 Camaro on my own and loving every minute of it. I also run a about a dozen or so ads online for products that I personally fabricate and restore for spare cash while I am a 7th grade teacher locally. (math) I am looking for a career change ASAP in wanting to make my dreams of being a future shop owner just like what you guys do at Gas Monkey. I watch EVERY SINGLE SHOW of yours while building my vision of my own shop and crew.

    Now, as a father of 3, married, and busy with just keeping up in life, my Camaro free-time has thinned down to little or nothing and it’s driving my crazy.

    For 4 years, I ran my own little online business restoring parts and fabricating others in order to put myself through college for my current teaching career.

    My passion is CARS, and I am looking to make the change for life by diving in full force into a career creating and restoring muscle cars and customs…

    You’ve inspired me plenty and the fire is burning… and this would be the perfect spark to kick it into motion for me!

    Thank you for reading! Hope to hear from you guys…

  18. Everything is filled out and sent in. Hope to hear from you soon. This a unique challenge your putting out there and it’s a challenge I have succeeded at throughout career. Love your style and approach to issues on Fast and Loud.

  19. I’m a fanatic of the classic cars, myself own some very nice cars like a Corvette 81 purchased from the original owner, 1 Fiero 1984 one original owner with all the documentation in both cars, and many other classics. This show inspire me and my brother Eduardo to open a classic car restoration shop, We have a new and different approach, we open our shop in Eagle Pass TX, because is the border with Mexico to work in both markets, Mexico and USA, we have the advantage to get abundant labor help because is an small town and also we help people to get a job. Some of the restoration works we can do it in Mexico (like upholstery and chrome) to lower our production cost. Our idea is restore quality cars at very accessible prices to be more competitive. We are actually in the paint full step of building up our shop and learning from the experts and that why we are fans of this excellent show of Gas monkey. We are in the process to build new website (we are doing by our own because for us is part of the business build a quality website that work in all the new technology with liquid panels that adapt to any computer, tablet or cell phone).
    We have the hope this will be a profitable business, we start selling our classic cars in our car lot and working on all the major websites like eBay to promote our cars and participating in auctions like Mecum where we already sold one of our classics and was a wonderful experience because the opportunity to see the work of others and also learn to pay the high cost of a first class auction.

  20. I have a personal shop but not a public one. In my personal shop sits what my kids, ages 7 and 3, and wife, of 10 years, call “The Hot Rod” in which we take to all the local car shows and rally’s. I love classic cars and always have. The very first time I took my wife out on a date was in a 79′ chevy with holes in the floor boards, no radio, and the windows wouldn’t role down. I currently own a 77′ chevy step side 4X4 that my grandfather bought in 79′, that has been restored once “just as cheap as possible job” and will soon be doing a frame off re-restoration on it, I also have a 88′ chevy single cab, short wheel base 2 wheel drive that is restored and completely down to the new drive train. The 88′ is what my family call “The Hot Rod”. It has a 406 small block, 289 comp cam, vortec ported and polished heads, built 3 speed turbo 350, 3500 stall, 373 gears, stock 10 bolt rear end with an Eaton locker. I am running MT drag radials when we go to car shows or the strip but also have a set of 20 when I wanna just cruise around, look good, and burn tires for the ladies. When I crank it up at the house my hole street knows what’s coming, “loud engines, smoking tires, and a wild ride”. I also own a working cow/calf farm. We raise beef cattle, cut hay, repair fences, grow timber and make necessary repairs to our equipment. Then when I am not playing with my toys or working around my farm I work off shore 7 days on and 7 days off, and we all know how that’s going, but I been doing for 12 years now. Needless to say with my experience with vehicles, around the farm and equipment, and oil field equipment repairs, I can just about tear anything apart and put it back together. So if your looking for that kinda guy then I think I can do it.

  21. Aloha Richard / Aaron,
    I’am here in SoCal, (San Diego) I had a Custom Rod Shop out of my house while I was Fire Capt. here. It was my Hobby. But even as a Hobby, some pretty Epic Rod’s came out of my Garage, 1958 Impala Convertible, ’27’ Ford pick-up with 700 H.P., a few ’69’ & ’70’ Chevelle’s, A few Chevy P/U’s running 400 to 500 H.P. street legal.
    I’am now since Retired from the Dept. @ 46 y/o and my Hobby has now become my Dream future of having fun building Hot Rods, Race Cars & 4×4 Trucks. I have found a cool little shop at the Beach and have a lot of followers that come just to hang out, drink a beer, watch the games on the big screens and @ lunch we all break Off to Paddle Out and catch a few waves. Building of Car & Trucks is Diverse, I have older guys, U.S. Marines (we’re right next to Camp Pendleton) I have Surf Board designers doing Graphics and help Wounded Warriors. I just moved back to SoCal from Hawaii and go back from time to time to complete or help complete jobs there. If you chose to do my world / Shop, it is never ending between SoCal & Hawaii.
    I would ultimately like to get a little bigger as far as work but still keep the fun, community help, & quality we are know for. Like I said I’am small but an incredible adventures definitely happen here between building cars, surfing, paddle boarding, friends and customers hanging out, helping the Marines out and hitting all the races between Az. & Cali.
    Mahalo for your consideration.

  22. Hey Richard – You definitely want to interview my husband Jimmy Dunn. He always said he could fix anything but a broken heart. And that is so true that he can fix anything. Even if he didn’t have all the tools at his disposal – his creativity made the tool that made it work. I know – I moved in next door to him and started dating him (who does that?). We got married and I know he is what YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. He got me watching FAST and LOUD and I never cared about this stuff before. But now I love your show. I know you and him would make a GREAT team. And he REALLY loves BEER!

  23. Pick me.
    I have had to close my shop as I can no longer work on cars after losing both my legs above the knee.
    I still have the internet sales part of the business though.
    I specialized in Aftermarket AC, Cruise Controls, Power windows, door locks alarms remote starts etc.
    For cars and trucks made without those things.
    Cars from the 40’s to present.
    I started as an ARA, Frostemp, SCS/Frigette and others dealer.
    All DFW area big businesses in their heyday.
    But those days have disappeared as has my legs.
    I’d like to hire a decent crew to do in town and the area installs as well as dealer work plus any custom work.
    There us space for 3-4 cars to be worked on at once in my small shop.

    Contact me for more info

It was done out of a 40×50 shop in Essex Jct VT. Place call Junction Motorsport & Collision . I had to walk away from it all because I had cancer then a bone marrow transplant . I do stuff for Rally America the national rally championship. This topic should make a good show.

  27. You should do some surprise visits,,I remember a Guy JAMES PELHAM I worked for years ago,he had it all going for him,location,know how,a couple sons to take it all over.He always had plenty of work..All he needed was a Rep and Class boost…The building went up for sale,rather then buy,he let it all go,Nice building,you couldn’t ask for a better location.I was thinking,”Don’t sell out,buy the building”..I’m sure he let the mustang go also,that he would race in the summer months.Yes visit some hole in the wall places too..

  28. Home,home on the range,,where the deer an the antelope play,,where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day…..must be nice to be you,,or me,take your pick..Goodluck Arron…what are friends for?(pssst.I won’t text in your blog again,I know how busy you are.)

  29. I have a cooking show called GARAGE COOOKIN -www.garagecookin.com I do this out of my 2 car garage in CLeveland Ohio, check it out . I think you could work it into a show and come and remodel my garage.Thanks

    Mike

  30. To whom may give a rats ass. I own and run a shop in the heart of downtown town Tucson. There are alot of shops around us but none quite like mine. My grandfather started it in the 40s dad took it over in the 70s and I’ve ran it since 08. Anyway after 3 generations you can imagine the stories and disfunction these old dusty shop walls have scene. The shop is pretty big and at one time did all the fleet vehicals in Tucson. Now we are a shop that takes on many different types of jobs. The old shop is run down and could use a face-lift for sure but has so much character. There’s even an old house on the shop that was built in the early 1900’s. In closing I would just like to say how much I enjoy watching you guys. It makes me feel pride for what my family and I’ve done our whole lives. Keep up the awsome work.
