Back in 2013 when Richard and Dennis bought the No. 1 and No. 2 Firebirds, they knew they needed to call in the cavalry to manage the restoration process. Enter: Jason Aker. Aker owned his own restoration shop called Worldwide Muscle Cars in Oklahoma City when Gas Monkey called on him for his restoration expertise. He decided to come down to help on the project and ended up staying permanently. How could he not? He’s now the shop foreman at Gas Monkey Garage and he also judges Shelbys (his all-time favorite car) at national car shows across the country.
