In case you missed it, here are the clips from my appearance on The Artie Lange Show last night. Had a great time with those guys!
Richard is a great guy, good businessman, greetings from Argentina
Humble, beautiful, and gorgeous! True, Raw American! You Rock!
Hello i have a question for richard rawllings my uncle was a collector of cars he was a retierd navy vet. And school teacher in detroit michigan.. I live in dayton ohio when he passed away i found out he left me with one of his cars a 1975 chevelle malibu classic . I just wanted to ask someone who knew about cars where can i get parts for this car. Im a fan of the show i always try to watch the show to pick up tips . I also have my kids on my unit watch your show when im working. I work in the juvenille detention center here in dayton ohio .i bring hot rod books and rat rod magazines for them to read which they enjoy reading a few of them interested in auto mechanics thank you for a good clean show brother. Also if you have any information on a header embelm and rear tail light housing lens and plastic peice inside trunk which holds the bulbs i appriciate you and your crew for a good show may God continue to bless you and your work family in everything yae set out to do stay blessed brother.
I don’t have a line on any specific parts for that car right now. I can tell you that eBay, Craigslist, and classifieds/ salvage yards are a great resource to sift through to find parts. Thanks for the love, and we’ll see you in a few weeks with all new episodes.
I’m proud of you Richard Rawlings. It is so awesome that you got the chance in life to step up into the entertainment industry. Not only that I can tell you are a really good person just talking with you a few times in the past. Your show is awesome and your rides are too.
Thanks, Robert. I’m incredibly lucky and blessed to be where I am today. I’m really living the dream!
Richard – Congrats on your success! You are a dynamic example of what can happen when you pursue your dream with passion and hard work. I admire those with a vision, who set goals, and stay focused no matter what obstacles come their way. In addition – you have personality plus, a great sense of humor and a smile brighter than a microwave!! Best Wishes for your continued success!
Cool interview. Thanks for sharing with us.
Thanks for the great clips Richard, keep them coming. We get to learn more of you personally and of the back ground that doesn’t show in the time alloted for the actual car builds. Your show is informative, interesting, and most of all fun. Your crew shows ‘character’ and that’s a part of it. You are a major success, stick with it, and have fun.
PS I love the 40s, 50s, and 60s the most… muscle is not a big draw for me as much as ‘classic’ so don’t lose one for the other.
An idea for a show… an evening just hanging & chatting in the bar/cafe with everyday patrons. Thumbs up gang! Thanks, Roger
Thanks for the support Roger, glad you’re a big fan of the show I definitely appreciate it.
After a massive heartattack two months ago I have severe sleeping problems, You know thinking dark thoughts. The only thing helping me through the night is watching episodes of Fast and Loud. I normally reject reality show, because after some time You realize they are not “real”.
So, thank You for making it through the night!
hello Richard, my family and i came down to Dallas a couple of weeks ago from Pennsylvania and when i saw the Gas monkey bar and grille was nearby, we had to take a field trip! We enjoyed a few beers , bought a crazy monkey T-shirt and enjoyed the ‘scenery’.
The venue was very cool and too bad I missed the concert nite, but hey, the beer was cold, the food was awesome!
Keep up the good work! Hope to meet you in person some day!
My 11 year old daughter and I watch your show every week. It is great Daddy-Daughter bonding time. Of course her favorite is Sue when she calls you Ass Monkey! Makes us bust a gut everytime! Keep it up! Love the show!
Richard, you’re an inspiration. On March 4th, on my birthday you appear on Artie Lange and tell a very familiar story. The same day, I got my dream sports car Porsche Boxster….didn’t know if I should go domestic or imported as I am a long time GM guy. I’m happy…….thanks!!
We watch your show every time its on over here in good ol ENGLAND UK,I ve owned 20 American cars,73 chey malibu,74 camero, 76 pontiac firebird,olds cutlass,pontiac catalina 78.chev blazer.ford mustng gradee,73,chev caprice station wagon 76,mecury monarch,dodge sports cab pick up 94,dodge avenger 2006.24 harleys 2 buels,2 victorys now a KAWASAKI DRIFTER 1500 styled as an INDIAN M/C ape bars, leather bags,custom seat. COOL !
Oh wow! I had no idea you could even get all those cars over there. I’m a little jealous of your collection, Roger!
Hi Richard, Your motto is something I have been telling my kids forever. If you do what you love…you will never work a day in your life.
So glad you posted this. I have so much respect for you Richard Rawlings ! Your a great person!!. Gas Monkey ROCKS!! And one day I wish to come to Texas and visit the garage and the Bar & Grill! It will be a dream vacation for me.Hopefully I will be on my Harley! Going to be a long time, but it’s on my list of things I’d like to do!
Hi Richard. Just watched your interviews on the Artie Lange Show. Absolutely great! You come across exactly as you do on your TRUE reality programme, Fast and Loud. We here in South Africa have only had seasons 1 and 2 I think, however, I don’t care if it’s even a re run I still watch it as do most of the members of the Durban Early Car Club of SA. Apart from yourself and Aaron I find Tom to be an absolute character of characters. He should be on stage between shows! Carry on the brilliant work. Ken
Great interview, Richard!! learned a few things about you in the interview!
My daughter Lisa and her partner Brett were visiting the States in late Febuary and went to GMG
They are from Perth in Western Australia, they were a long way from home. They made a detour from Florida to visit the garage, to by a t shirt and some great souvenirs for my 60 th birthday which is today.
They took a photo of you by chance when you came to the front counter, and said hello,
I am a big a big fan of you and all the guys and girls in the show, I particularly liked the episode when your Dad came and looked over the workshop, I sincerely wish you every success and good health.
The kids went to the Bar and Grill and enjoyed that as well
Hope to meet you one day
All the best Max in Western Australia
Thanks so much, Max! Glad I was able to catch them while I was up front.
Richard. You make that show kick ass. I love When you trash talk Chrissy…..Although i think she can beat your ass
GMG is such a good show and the whole cast is phenomenal! Looking forward to more episodes and maybe someday getting to a Gas Monkey bar and grill!
Thanks, Eric! We have our watch parties down here at the Bn’G, so make sure you swing on by if you’re in the area.
Just realised I need a beer or 6 in the GMG Bar and Grille, may be even offer my services as a beer assistant, if it’s a decent brew!!!!!
Enjoy life – JFDI – Let’s smile and enjoy being a Petrol Head!
Mr. Rawlings your my idol I’m a GMG addict I can’t get enough of Fast N’ Loud. Its giving me a lot of ambition with wrenching , keep up the good work!
Thanks, Leland! Keep on wrenching, man!
GMG Rocks!!!! Richard is really a such nice guy as Aaron. Big Fan from Brazil!!!! Keep the good guys You are!!! Congrats for the Show too.
Thanks for the love, Caio!
Always watch the fast and loud show when it’s on discovery here in Europe, for now they’re on a break. I hope they will be showing it again anytime soon.
GReat interview, didn’t know you were a fireman, that’s really cool !
What are your thoughts of the Italian Alfa Romeo? I really like those old gt’s.
Thanks, Erik! Yeah, I sure was. Those are pretty badass old cars.
This is a wonderful Show . The days of walking around with a Hot Rod Magazine is Cool Again . Thank you Richard, now I have my sons watching your show coming from inner city Chicago.
Hell yeah! Glad we’ve got you all hooked on the show.
Hey Richard, we love the show in the UK and I spend half my life in Dallas and just been to GMG for visit number 5! Love your team, love Christie and love what you do. If only you did more European cars
Great to see a team that truly loves their cars… COME TO THE UK!!!!
Working on trying to get over to your side of the pond, David. Stay tuned…
Richard, about getting out from behind the computer and into the garage. I found a web site that deals with salvage cars and they have some of the 60-70 classics. I have though about buying one, but Part of me sees it as a money pit, other part of me sees no difference between pulling a car out of a barn or field or purchasing a “salvage” car. Minus the business decisions, would you do it?
It depends on the kind of damage the car suffered and if you’re planning on immediately planning on turning and selling it. For the most part, cars with a salvage title bring a lot less than cars with a regular title. If the car is super rare or it’s offered at a price you feel you can’t refuse do what you feel is right, Scott.
So true what you said about getting off these computers and acomplishing your dreams like you did great words i love your show waooooo
See the commercials for the new episode next Monday. Very exciting!!!
I can’t wait for y’all to see what we’ve been working on up here!
Hey Richard…. Love the show. What motivated you to go out and start your business….. money or passion? I did it for the passion…… but man you need to make money just to keep my head above water.
Yeah, no kidding. I did the printing press for the money. Gas Monkey is all about passion.
I like David’s idea. You and the crew should do a few Euro shows, like they do on American Pickers. I bet it would start a whole new european monkey craze! then we could introduce new words into the Euro languages like “Ass Monkey’s”., WWHHHHHHOOOOO!!!!!! and of course, the interwebs! I would start with your amigo in Sweden!
Richard – great interview interesting to see the real side – great to see someone with enough persistance do what they love best and make a buck out it – something to be really proud of – next time Iam in the states going to make a special effort to get over to the bar and grill looks cool – love to visit Texas again been a while !
Just wanted to chime in real quick. my twelve year old son and i are huge fans of Gas Monkey and are building a frame off restomod 68 Bronco. Just got our Gas Monkey sweatshirts and wear them proudly here in Southwest Missouri! LOTS of complements on the swag everywhere we go! Cant wait to visit a Gas Monkey Bar & Grill soon. Keep up the good work and thank you for helping me get my son off of the computer and out in the shop learning with me.I built everything from show cars to Monster trucks with my Dad. now that he is gone , i get to teach my Son, and you have helped make Dad COOL! Thank you. (BLOOD,SWEAT AND BEERS)
Badass! Glad you and your son are getting to build that together. Thanks for the love, guys.
Hello Richard RAWLINGS and all garage gas monkey. I very love machines and like to look your transmission. I live on the south of Ukraine, Kherson area, Skadovsk ashore the Black sea and till recently my family did not gather to abandon the motherland, but in connection with the last events I am terrible for my daughter, 1 year 9 months. Already week they are in Kyiv, but a situation is intensifyed every day, today or tomorrow I will abandon the city too. To hurry is the best not method of decision of problem, but now we ни who need to neither Europe, nor Russia nor Ukraine. The political decision of problem is not simply present, Ukraine is torn to pieces. In Ukraine it was heavily to live in the plan of stable development, but now becoming is simple unthinkable. We did not yet decide that to do us, but I want to abandon this country that gives to only select, and takes away at all. My economies will last only the flight in one side. Say do I can to count on Your help? my number +380977502650 thanks in advance.
Dang, Artem. I’ve been seeing all the craziness that’s been going on over there on the news. Stay safe, sir.
eight o’clock can’t come soon enough!!!
You’re telling me!
Richard is a very likeable nice businessman and above all very honest – Thank you and keep up the good …
greetings from Germany
Super excited about new season ! Was a letdown for my “friends” to let me know RR was @ Cleveland Auto show the day AFTER he was here ( – Also for Walter Motley from March 6 comment above check out the swap meet @ Charlotte (depending on when their racing there)either @ the end of this month or beginning of next (April) they always have a lot of parts, also Chevelle sites.
Springfield Missouri needs a Gas monkey bar & GRILL!!!
Thought Artie Lange passed away?!? Still loved the interview, and heard that you’re freakin human! Thanks for loving beer and showing it on the show! You guys make me laugh and want to make a trip to you shop so I could get my 2002 F150 ‘spruced up’ hehe!!! Trust me, I would if I could! Please snort another shot, I need another good laugh!
Thanks, Kari. And believe me! I won’t be snorting any more shots anytime soon. It still burns from the last time I did it.
I’m so happy for Aaron! That car is sweet!
On our way from Iowa to hopefully visit the gang at the bar and Grill and hopefully get to see the garage. Our family is huge fans of the show. Looking forward to the new episodes!
Richard, you run a great business and are a very successful business man! You have alot to be proud of! I hope to one day meet you Keep up the good work, and enjoy living the dream
Thanks, Bobbie. Will do!
Triple R! As always awesome.. just wish you talked more on twitter since we follow each other and all. Keep keeping it real!
Will do, RJ!
HELLO RICHARD!! I AM FROM SPAIN, I DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH VERY WELL, BUT I WANT SAID YOU THAN I LIKE YOUR PROGRAM VERY MUCH. HERE IN SPAIN REPEAT ONE EPISODE EVERY DAYS. I WATCH ALWAYS, ONE TIME, TWO TIME….ALWAYS WITH THE SAME EXCITEMENT. YOUR ARE THE BEST AND YOU ARE THE GREAT MAN. VERY HUGS AND KISSES FOR ALL PEOPLE.
Thanks for the love, Teresa!
Hi Richard and Aaron, My wife and i love watching you show. In my life I have owned a few beauties like 64/63 Ford Gal. 66 Pont. 67 Nova ss 64 Old. Star Fire.Convertable and I built a 57 Vw body on a 32 ford frame with a 351 cleveland under the flip front end, that took 4 years.Thats just a few.But I am letting you know that up in the great white north of Ontario we do not get your show. From other people that write in they say it is on at 4am thats is f///en stupid. Have lots of fun doing what you do best,Aaron back off with the 18/20 in. rims they don,t work all the time,you do nice work. Thanks for the show. Smiley
Thanks for the love, Smiley. I’ve been hearing that we haven’t come back on up there. I don’t know why we haven’t come back on. Hopefully you’ll be seeing us again soon.
Hi from Scotland, love the cars, characters and the and the burnouts. Not visited the USA yet but if Gas Monkey needs a driver or whatever, sponser me and im there lol.
One question i have is why do you sell at auctions? Is there not more profit in selling from shop.
Thanks for the love, Davo. Don’t need a driver for the shop just yet. Sometimes you gotta risk big to win big, and an auction is a pretty big risk!
Hey Richard, I love all the excitement y’all add to the show but PLEASE PLEASE DON’T GET SCRIPT WROTE !!!! I really like a REALITY SHOW and I’m sure I’m speaking for many more,,,,please keep it a TRUE REALITY SHOW. I think you and your crew have GREAT personalities and do not need to be scripted. Keep up the great work and maybe one day me and the little lady can come see y’all at the BAR AND GRILL from Graniteville, S.C. southern boys.
Don’t worry, Rusty! Never had a script (Smokey and the Bandit episode dream sequence excluded), and we never will. I like to keep it real down here. Thanks for the love.
Hey Richard, what is the story behind the car you drive around with all the lights all over it?
Are you talking about my Shelby or the Donk? The Donk was my racecar for a while, my Shelby is my weekend car.
Richard-I’m a huge fan and have watched the show from the beginning. I also buy ur shirts and accessories. Aaron and the guys I love it all. Big Dennis fan as well.However I just hope with all your success you don’t forget why we watch your show. It’s about the cars. Don’t get all Hollywood now. Seems like ur always doing ur hair and screaming every two seconds. Wooooh!
Smokey skit? Really? restaurant? You guys are extremely talented and entertaining with cars please show more transactions with the transformation of these gems you find. P.S- Mark Cuban ride was prolly the funniest thing I ever saw on TV . Woooh!
Richard is such a lovely guy! So down to earth with a real passion for what he does!! Love the show over here in England….keep up the good work!
Thanks, Claire. Don’t worry, I wouldn’t stop even if they told me to!
Good gas monkey wanted to tell the program that drives me crazy, I keep watch episodes. I love the effect they have on people. From Buenos Aires, Argentina looking to do something similar in my small garage looking for custom work and make great things.
Since we see them with my friends have generated interest in hot rod and classic cars.
My husband got me hooked on your show. Far more entertaining than some of the other car shows that he usually subjects me too. My two year old even says Gas Monkey!
Perhaps you and Aaron could make an appearance on Top Gear driving the reasonably priced car!?!
That would be a dream come true, Sam!
hello Richard love the show . the cars you guys build and actually drive are amazing look forward to the new shows hope to get texas one day and see the bar and grill
Thanks, do it to it! You can’t beat a burger and cold beer on the patio this time of year!
Hello Richard, just wanted to apologize to you… I was at Gas monkey bar and grill one day and while you were talking with your crew I rudely interrupted you. I actually didn’t know you were in a meeting but still I should have waited to call for you. Well just wanted to say that you were kind enough to still come and take a picture with my buddy. I think you are humble and blessed person. I wish you more success and just keep being you. By the way your show is awesome and keeps me from doing all the things my wife comes up for me to do because she knows how much I love your show.. 1 hour of peace
No worries, man. I always try to make time for the fans, you’re the reason I am where I am today! Thanks for the love, glad you’re digging the show.
Love, love, LOVE the show. Gives me something to look forward to on Monday nights! I am a car chick with a sense of humor who dearly misses my old Charger, Camaro and Satellite. You guys really are the best of reality TV. Haven’t been to Texas in 25 years, but I am missing it now!
Well it sounds like now is as good a time as any to get back down here! Glad you like the show.
Richard your show is inspirational.
I grew up without a father and had very little guidance while doing it. I’m a father of three beautiful girls today and still find myself wondering how different my life would be if I did have a Dad who cared enough to teach and inspire me. Your story makes me believe – I can still be a good Dad to my girls. I share my passion for cars with them every day and it shows! i drive a 57′ ford Del Rio 2 door ranch wagon and we have a blast. They will always remember our days with the wagon at car shows and Monday nights watching The Gas Monkey Crew!
Keep up the great work!
SoCal gear head.
You, sir, sound like a badass dad. Glad you’re able to share your love of cars with your daughters, man. Thanks for watching on Monday nights.
Hey Richard..love the show!….My first car was a ’74 Comet as well…Red with black stripes..and hood scoop…I may be in Dallas this summer visiting family..hope to come by the shop and bar…
Very nice! Come on down, man!
G’day Richard. Just wanted to say thanks for your show. I had not seen it until a month ago but have now seen every episode and am a diehard fan. You guys are lucky to be able to get the cars you do in the States. Here in Oz the same cars are worth a fortune to buy but we do have some decent muscle of our own too. Anyway keep up the great work and please pass on a thanks to all the monkeys from your Australian fans. Cheers mate.
Thanks for the love, Danny! Glad you’re digging the craziness that we’re doing over here in the US.
Hi Richard keep up the good work love watching you
Thanks, Robin! Will do.
How about doing a early 60s ford wagon say 64 country sedan or a 64 mercury marauder??
I know Aaron seems to be a big fan or fords/mercs!
The show is freakin the best!!!
Not opposed to that, just have to find the right one first! Thanks for the love, Joe.
LOVE WATCHING YOUR SHOW EVERY WEEK! I OWN A 1964 GALAXY 500. I NOTICED YOUR A FORD GUY AND THAT’S BAD ASS. I HOPE YOU DO MORE GALAXY BUILDS IN THE FUTURE SO I CAN GET SOME MORE IDEAS ON HOW TO DO MINE UP RIGHT. IT’S A 4 DOOR CAR WHICH I DON’T MIND CUZ I HAVE A BIG FAMILY. SO I WAS THINKING ABOUT SUICIDE DOORS ,BAG IT OUT WITH SOME NICE CUSTOM SHOES ON HER! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK MONKEYS!

Hello Richard I have a 1965 Riviera that I don’t have time to finish. I don’t want to sell it but I am wondering if GMG can finish the build for me? I love your work.
Did you own a 30s rat rod sedan for sale at New Braunfels swap meet
In April 06 ? We were traveling thru from California and stop to take a
look around.The owner fired the rod up with a great loud roar.I said,
man that thing sound BAD ! Well I think he thought I meant running
crappy. I told him in the 60s Bad was good in Hot Rod terms.
Do you know this guy?
I’m 70 and your show is BAD! !
hello Richard the show last nite was awesome. love the copo camaro’s. and I am a ford man. As long as I have been watching the show I haven’t heard how you came up with the name GAS MONKEY. My fiancé and I were curious. I am a big fan so if I missed it before, sorry. Good luck on all your new projects. I like Aarons logo too. Awesome.
Well Richard, we do not get your show anymore here in the great white north of Timmins, Ontario,Canada. It is a shame that they (DISCOVERY Channel) thinks that “Rods and Wheels” is a better show than yours. I have watched it twice and I don’t like it. I think it is time to dump DISCOVERY as we pay about $100.00 a month to watch TV. Little f****ng dumb don’t you think? Summer is coming fast, it;s time to get out and build my wife’s 89 f150 that has been left to her.Goodbye for now hope the show returns I,m upset. Thank for the fun. Smiley. Good Luck.
I’m 53 and you said something that totally tugged at my heart. When I started my business it cost me the love of my life. I could see the pain in your face, I feel you buddy… Love the show and my girlfriend bought me one of your shirts for Christmas. I wear it proudly…
Hey Richard do a 65 66 chevey biscane
A 409 or better ya buddy gots to have the 4 speed
You are a charmer for sure! My husband and I watch your show all the time and enjoy your style of leadership. The best thing about your show is that no one is mean spirited or puts anyone down. There isn’t a jerk on the show who talks down to anyone in the shop like the others out there. It’s refreshing and we love watching. Very good hearted man and show! Keep it going. You all are goofy and hilarious!
Something is so sexy about a man with confidence and who isn’t afraid to try anything once! Great interview! I love seeing the passion in your eyes. I love that your show is actually reality, dont change a thing!!:) I’ve been a huge fan for a while and one of my dreams came true when I got to meet you. Such a nice and genuine person. You can tell you appreciate everything you have. Best of luck with everything you do.
Richard you are a great inspiration to me and my grandson we both enjoys the Show.my grandson always gets excited at cars that gets restored.he always say to me moms why dont you call Mr.Richard him and those guys are the best.they can fix any car.My Uncle Left me a 1957/1960 Thunderbird black on black its calling your name if you can use this T-bird please contact me 704 299-2312 ok be blessed
