Book Tour Card


  1. born 5/ 63 mothers day,. would love to see a rivera of that year born again on your think dales nomad had crome lol my dad had one that was burgundy that he let me and my bros help wet sand to really bring it out in the night air. sat about 4 inches off of the ground. I think with the crome and the lines, this is one of the most beautiful cars in the world. if I win the lottery this is the first car I would buy with all that money lol

  2. fyi love your show, my mom just moved to texas, if I get to visit her I might stop by just to say hey or do a drive bye to say I was there. keep up the good work and make the green. fyi Richard green IS not a good color as far as im concernd in a used car.just my own objection but it works for ya. keep making the green.

  3. Good book tho. Broke my bad habits, visiting jail 3x year. Great book. Priceless remedy. Can i Gett a RR sig me! Tits right there

  4. I love the show! You guys are funny yet you are serious. I would like to see more “interior restoration” rather than the mechanical stuff, but I am into “interior” not “exterior”. I am a novice having restored my 1973 Bug doing the exterior painting and interior re-do myself and really enjoy watching you guys tricking out rides. This coming from a 54 year old female hippie!

  5. GMG Team love your all on all you do , your show is the best me and my son are Latin American from Texas ( Laredo) but we live out here in Illinois watching a show from Texas Yeah !!! You all makes us proud although we are not related in any way haha which in fact Richsrd you do look like my brother he too knows about cars , but you’ve come a long way to where you’s are and being on T.V if I was there in Texas I’d meet you all I’ll be approaching and do a ” Carabana ” which it means with Honer’s and Respect , well good luck you all may god bless you always and keep you safe where ever you might be .

    Thanks for interest shown anyway.
    South Africa

  31. Damn you are busy. I read the preview of your book a while back and I dig your writing style.
    I’ve enjoyed your show from the beginning. I like the fact that you don’t hide a lot of the mistakes..keeps it real.

  32. Richard omg i want to meet you sooooo bad please come to atlanta georgia or TN please please you are soooo hot and yes my hubby know about my crush on you lol

  33. Sooooooo disappointed that the book signing at the Hastings in Waxahachie was cancelled. I really hope it is rescheduled soon!

  34. I’m sad you didn’t come to the Valley Ranch Walmart on May 16! I wanted to show you a pic of my 98 240sx se + ask for your help to get her back to her original awesomeness! -debbie

  35. Really sucks to drive 250 miles to Irving tx to find out book signing was cancelled fans make u and break u

    • I posted it all over my facebook and Twitter that I wouldn’t be there and the events were cancelled. I don’t know how else I could have let you know. I’m sorry!

  36. My boyfriend and I went to Ocean City MD last weekend and met Christie. You are so lucky to have her working for you, she is such a nice, down to earth person! My boyfriend had his t-shirt on that I got for him from your website, the one with the your license plate on it, and she told us the story of why you can’t sell that particular shirt anymore. My boyfriend builds his own hot rods and rat rods and we love to watch your show. We would love to come down to Texas, maybe next year, and meet you and all the guys at the garage! I haven’t bought your book yet, but hope to soon. Tell Christie and the guys we said, “keep up the great work” and the same goes to you too.

  37. Do you think that in the future you may come to the UK for a book signing? I have seen that the book isn’t out until 18th June in the UK – I have mailed your customer services about getting one in time for my fiancΓ©’s birthday on 6th June. Would be great if you could squeeze the UK in for a signing… Chester or Manchester maybe πŸ™‚

  38. Hi Richard,
    Seen you at your recent book signing. I introduced myself and tried to speak to you about a high profile car build. You did not seem to be too interested and was bullied away by one of the store staff. This would have been so easy and lucrative for the both of us. Not a good business practice. Shame on you.

  39. If you ever come to massachusetts my dad would love for you to sign his 69 charger SE. Love the show keep on building awesome cars!

  40. Could not put the book down. Read it in 2 days. It just confirms what I already know about you. You’re an amazing, driven guy. What a long wild ride it’s been. Thanks for sharing your journey with us in so many ways. I’m proud to be a Gas Monkey Girl! The shout out was AWESOME. I’m glad our paths crossed in March. I’ll never forget the warm welcome all the “GMGirls” we’re given by everyone at GMG. I love Southern hospitality. As your journey continues, I wish you happiness & continued success in everything you aspire. Catch you on Twitter TC! Peace & Love

  41. Hey Richard I was just wonder why the date have changed on your tour and are you still going to the woodlands and if so what date and time ? Thank you , Austin

  42. Richard I just wanted to say you Rock & I love 4 hat you are always just yourself & never try to be fake for anyone or any reason! I love your passion for cars & how excited you get when u discover a great find. I love cars myself, (hell I even work on my own cars) 80’s music, Harleys & oh yeah Miller Light but most of all I love your BaddAssness! I wish you were coming to Florida for your book tour I would be so stoked to get to meet you. Maybe one day I will take a road trip to come see you!! You rock on every level!!

  43. P.s. Richard you would make my decade if you followed me on Twitter @1HurricaneDonna that would be the BombDiggity!!

  44. Hi Richard – do you pick the comments to post on here. I wrote a REALLY complimentary blog on your book last week and it disappeared after I posted it?! Just wondering?! I couldn’t put the book down it was so good. Great read! Well done. Thanks for sharing your journey with us. I’m enjoying the ride! ? PEACE & LOVE

    • The comments have to be approved first. Haven’t gone through to approve them until now, so I’m sure it will show up soon!

  45. Hi Richard! You have a ton of NY fans (7 that live in our home) that would have loved to meet you! I am one of them, however I believe my husband has me beat. It is a family affair watching your show. We would have loved to be able to meet you and have you sign our book for us! Hopefully, we will make it to your neck of the woods one day, and stop over to say hi! ~ ChristIna & Bill Johosky

  46. What’s up.
    It seems like you are more concerned with selling tshirts,books and booze instead of building cars. Even your inventory on cars for sale is nothing but cars you bought for the quick flip.
    I started watching GMG for the car builds.
    When you getting back to that?

  47. Hey Richard
    Saw you were in NJ in May, we missed it. But heard you made a quick stop by us to attend a car show in Old Bridge NJ August w Dennis. The one car show my husband didn’t attend w his 1987 Grand National. He’s always wearing his GM shirt to represent. Hope you get to make it out to NJ again.

  48. Hey Chief,

    Want to do a build with my 13 yr old. I’m want to do an Impala, 67′. Would you look fo the big block 454 or would you look for a smaller size engine for less ware? What’s the true classic muscle for the 67 impala….engine size partner?

  49. Richard i have a bet you will definately win with your gas monkey garage budds
    lets take there pay checks laugh,and have a beer ,i’m disabled and could use Aarons check thown into my jeep ,,hit me back

  50. Hi my family and I or going to southwest Florida in July my 16year old son is gas monkey mad ,I love the show myself I have took this crazy idea of my son and myself driving from bonita springs to your garage or there any avents on in July. Plus would the staff that be on the show be there it’s a hell of a drive just to get there and then drive back again but I know my son would love it and such a great memory it would be thanks for your time

    • Everyone who’s on the show is always here at the garage working. That being said, if you make the drive out here, I can’t guarantee you’ll get to meet any of the monkeys. The front of the shop (retail area) is always open to visitors. We film all day every day, so we can’t give tours. But when we have filming breaks, we try to go up front and meet the fans, sign autographs, take pics, etc.

  51. Richard my 6 year old and I watch your show religiously he even has me dvr it and keeps all the episodes to watch over and over he walks around telling everyone ” Whoo get you some of that” he had a class project where he had to give a speech and they asked if he could meet one person who would it be and he said you and then said get you some of that lol I was wondering do you have down time at the shop during the season or make special appearances where we could try to get to meet you? I know you are super busy but my son would probably never stop talking about it. Thanks
