Richard Rawlings Featured in New Dodge Commercials: GYSOT, MOPAR FANS!

Hey MOPAR fans, you asked for it, you got it! The new Dodge commercials were filmed right here at Gas Monkey Garage. GYSOT! We’re excited about the 2015 Charger and Challenger and even more excited that Dodge is now Chrysler’s Performance-vehicle brandCheck it out here. More MOPAR to come.




@andy sims:

I grew up with Mopar. (I’m 58) My dad always had Chrysler products and would custom order his cars for traveling. He would sometimes get police packages in them and I loved it! I ordered 1973 GTX with 440 Mag and wish like heck I still had it. I still have my 1976 Power Wagon that I bought new. It needs a lot of work, but it’s worth it!

Very Cool. You are a natural. How many takes till the director yelled, “it’s a wrap”. I see a CLIO Image Award in your future; maybe an Emmy?! You are totally awesome!! Keep on doing what you’re doing – Keep Smiling ;>) Vette Girl <333

Awesome! As a MOPAR fan and a owner of a 2007 Plum Crazy Purple Charger SRT8 ( #123 of 300) and a ’72 Plymouth Scamp, I like the hood music one the best and glad to see GMG doing something MOPAR. Goof Job guys!!

Ha!! Who picked the music for the 100 year event commercial?
It’s pretty sweet that you got picked to be the face for the brand.
Kudos Rico!

@Justin Losey:

I truly love seeing Gas Monkey Garage growing up so fast. Richard Rawlings’ personality is perfect for these commercials. No Chevy, GMC, or Ford commercial could look this good with him in it & no I’m not just only a mopar fan, I’m a fan of cool. Since I was 16 I wanted to build & flip collectible creations with 4 wheels & a motor but it wasn’t until Richard, Aaron, Dennis, & the rest of GMG showed up on tv that I thought my pipe dream could be a reality. Now they’ve shown me how possible big dreams can be accomplished.

Dodge found a perfect mouth piece for the Charger, you did a great job with these commercials. I would like to make a CGI out of your cars. Go to my website and checkout EFEXIO.

Posted on May 10, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    That’s pretty badass! What would it take to make those 3D models?

    Posted on May 12, 2014 at 11:47 am

I wasn’t a big mopar fan until now! Great frickin’ commercial! Please don’t do commercials like Billy Mays or that British guy. Wait, maybe a Billy mays spoof? Now were talkin

My assistant turned me on to your show. I’m currently dealing w/an ill parent & a very stressful job. Came in to work this AM already having a tough day. I sat down at my PC & found my assistant put a picture of you on my screen. Your smiling face put an immediate smile on my face & my day turned around. Thank you!!

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 11:16 am

Way to go Dodge for hiring the coolest guy ever to pimp your cars. AWESOME! Now we need some burn outs!

Posted on May 24, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Am I mistaken or is that a Plymouth Roadrunner on the rack in a Dodge commercial?

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 9:02 pm

enjoy your show,you drive a ford on the show .will you be changing to a dodge truck

Posted on June 4, 2014 at 5:23 pm

IThought gas monkey garage hated mopars?

@Ron Burchett:

Richard, you have done it again! Just when I thought You had peaked your coolness, you go and join the Dodge revolution of power. Man be careful!! This combo is going to cause a coolness explosion that will cause a party to break out in all 50 states! Keep up the awesomeness brother, CHEERS !

Posted on June 13, 2014 at 10:15 am

Hey Cheryl, as the director of these spots, I agree 110% that Richard is a natural. Worked with a lot of big names, and Mr. Rawlings is the real deal. His ad-libbed takes are the ones that made it onto the screen. Just a few takes, and “that’s a wrap”. Stayed tuned for more!!

Love the new Dodge commercials with Gas Monkey

Posted on July 13, 2014 at 5:57 am

    Thanks for the love Anita!

    Posted on July 14, 2014 at 9:41 am

Richard, thank you for putting cool back on the map. I mean there are a ton of cool cars out there, but so many get caught up in Ferrari builds the best or its only classic American Mopar for me or nothing. While I can appreciate all that stuff, I more greatly admire your passion for all things auto. I am like that. Boats, bikes, planes, trains or automobiles brother. I love it all. I have been in the industry for a while and want to up my status. I have been recently consigning as well as locating. I know hard work is where it all begins but how does a guy catch connections like you to help grow their ambitions?

Posted on July 20, 2014 at 6:08 pm

    Just have to build some badass stuff to get people’s attention and then get it out there where people can see it. Go to shows, go to rallies, go anywhere where someone might see you! That’s what Aaron and I did with Gas Monkey and it seems to have worked out alright…

@Carrol ODell:

I just had to say…. When you showed of the Challenger with the shaker hood it sat in the back of my mind. Yesterday I was out just driving about and pulled into a dodge dealer to look at one. Oh how my heart sank…. One pretty grey one with no sunroof and and automatic too boot. (the horror). A white one…again automatic….hey I was just looking….disapointed but looking. The sales lady directed me to the back lot….new inventory not yet put on the lot….nothing….was leaving when a red RT blocked me in and the sales lady popped out and demanded I follow her….they were opening the doors to put this challenger on the showroom and I just had too see it…..well when I walked around the floor…there it was….a 14 mopar edition….in all it’s glory. Number 36. And this was no automatic….lol. My only question after I signed the final paperwork was….”do I get a beer assistant with that?”. So Richard….thank you for showing off that shaker and YOU actually sold that beautiful beast. Oh hey and I felt like a rock star as the sales people and mechanics cameout to see who bought it.

Posted on July 26, 2014 at 8:17 am

    Badass, Carrol! Have fun with your new beast!

    Posted on July 28, 2014 at 8:31 am

Now that’s a reason to buy dodge love Richard I told my husband leaving him for u Lol Of course I drive a dodge charger

Posted on July 27, 2014 at 6:58 pm

Posted on August 5, 2014 at 8:39 am

@Alan Kunski:

Wondering why Dodge left Aaron Kaufman out of the commercial. Grease Monkey Garage is a team to watch.

Posted on August 25, 2014 at 9:35 pm

I admit, I had to Google “Who’s the cool guy in the Dodge Commercials?”, but you make a very impressive impression. Now I get why they chose you. Good choice.
