  16. Hi Richard

    I have just checked Amazon uk & the release date for your book here is the 18th June so we have to wait a while longer before we get to read all your insider secrets, we can however pre order & wait 4 months!!

  17. there are a lot of fans in Argentina. I love your program, specially when you show detailed parts of car during restoration. I love Sue too. I don’t like the show during bloopers which were seen in other tv programs.

    Sice: Medium!

  22. hey Richard, when I get your book through the post could I send it over to you at GMG from England any get you all to sign it and I’ll pay to get it posted back? It would make my year

  23. Mr Richard my name is Anthony Mack , and last year i won a 69 resored comaro in a sa in Raleigh North Carolina.they told me that I won the safair and square and when it came time to deliver the car I haven’t heard anything from I hired a lawyer and he told me last week Thursday I was going to pick the car up with a 500 dollar gas card and the rights to publish my story of it possible that you can check into that for me so I can obtain my car I was really excited about the car knowing that it came from you.if you need to talk to me my phone number is 252 642 98 91 looking forward to hearing from you I really really enjoy your show on TV and looking forward to the new one in May.thank you very much for all you do for us race fans.

  24. ¿Qué te parece hacer una tele serie de dos chicas,una llamada NICKY STARSKY Y STACEY MACGYVER con el estilo de dos tele series como starsky y hutch y Mcgyver, seria la caña años ´70 & 80 combinados en una serie de aventuras, Nicky ex detective del departamento de policía de Los Ángeles y Stacey manitas experta en supervivencia como su abuelo Mcgyver.
    El coche apropiado seria un barracuda 70 con v10 de 3,5 Litros y 750 cv con volante formula 1, Siendo Nicky la piloto el motor de formula 1 con suspensión “hidractive”. Piénsatelo Richard aparte de tu tele serie serias productor de tele series y forrarias a la larga. Saludos

It just needs some TLC and money which I dont have extra right now if your interested or know someone who is email me and I will send pics thx love your show.

  29. Hi Richard

    I just adore your show and how natural you are in front of the cameras. I often leave comments on your Facebook page, but as I live in Spain, by the time I get the notification you are not online anymore. I would love to get a like one day!
    I am looking forward to reading your book and just hope that you have a son one day. You will make an amazing Dad. Everything in life pales into insignificance once you are a parent.
    If you ever come to Spain drop in for a few Cervezas. And I promise to be your beer assistant for the whole day.
    Big hugs

    Lena and her boys. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  30. I just pre-ordered your book as of 1 minute ago. I don’t know how much control you have over the books that go out when they become available, but I was wondering if you would sign the inside cover for me. I’m a huge fan of your show, and you as a person. I’m also a vet and still serving active duty. My 10 year anniversary of being in the USAF is on the 3rd of May and I just made rank to E-6. It would be a huge honor to have your book plus having a signed copy. I’m sure by asking, i’ll start a trend of others possibly wanting the same thing, if it hasn’t been requested already. Either way, if you can’t I understand, a lot of fans out there to please. I have a facebook personality page called Sgt. Car Man to share my enthusiasm of finding cars on the road that have been the ultimate test of time and are still driving around, plus anything that has 4 wheels and is unique in nature. Take a look if you got time. Thanks again! I’ll enjoy the read i’m sure.

  31. I just want to say i am a big fan of your work and i want to ask for a shout out. i live in morganton NC and i am 14. I work on a lot of cars at my dads garage. i really liked that coronet that you fixed and the 71 charger build.

  32. RR, love the show man. Watch it all the time at my place in Fort Worth. Just wanted to let you know I will be purchasing a badass ride from you one day. That 60’s Bel Air was sick man! Keep doin what you’re doin!

  33. This is for the monkeys I think Richard needs to buy a 1976 mustang II Gia I had one when I was 16 and they are some fun ill hot rods mine came factory with a 302 Windsor with a c4 auto with the 8.8 rear end and was running on 13 inch tires but if u want a fun ill hot rod there’s a challeng for you and the monkeys and the “bearded charmer”

  34. Richard i wish that i can bring a 69 camro to Dallas texas it’s a cool car it light blue it’s gotagood engine and a good head lights and good weheeles good carbureator and a crackshaft and heads and pully and bearings and timing set and valve cover gaskets and valve springs and fuel pump.
