  1. They’re ain’t “o’s” in the word cool to describe you guys. Feature a lot of big, brassy American build-outs & you’ll have me as a viewer for life.

  2. they’re ain’t enough “o’s in the word cool to describe you guys. Feature a lot of big, brassy American build-outs & you’ll have me as a viewer for life

  3. Love the show, Richard and the guys are great. I live in Dallas, Ga. So I think we have a little in common. Keep on doing what you do!

  4. I have gone to barrett jackson action the last two years, but on saturday day they have a very large car gathering in scottsdale pavilions car show. i seen a 69 camaro with a nick harrell 427 car for sale, some cars to buy right. have fun thanks for all the car experiences.

  5. Morning Mr. Rawlings,

    My best friend and I live in Phoenix and love your show. My best friend, Todd, has ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. We both Love Mustangs and at one time we both owned one. I know that we would love to meet you when you come out to the auction this week! I will try to purchase tickets for Friday to see the Mustang go up for Auction and hope we can run into each other and maybe have a drink? I will be wearing my Gas Monkey T-Shirt pushing Todd around in his wheelchair, should be easy to spot, I will be waving from the back when the Mustang goes up! Hope to see you and Dennis!

  6. Hey Richard,
    Thanks for taking the few seconds out of your night last night to take the pic with my 14 year old son at the show. That brief moment made his night. Nice to see when the camera isn’t rolling that on your personal time you are so down to earth and totally cool with your fans! Thanks again!

  7. I can’t believe Dennis is selling that F40!! You gonna buy it Richard? Hello from Scotland, somehow warmer than parts of the USA this past week or so haha

  8. Hey Richard……I’ll be @ the auction on Sat. (my only day off) and can’t wait to see if me and my son can spot and hopefully even meet you and Dennis.
    Would love to buy you a beer and Dennis a drink and talk.
    Thanks for all yje cool builds you and your guys do (well mostly your guys).

  9. After I graduate college this year and make the big bucks, I’m gonna have you guys build me a 66 Nova. Gas Monkey style. I’ll be in touch!

  10. Awesome show!! here in Pittsburgh I kinda do what you guys do but on a much smaller scale . I go out find that great deal and flip it . maybe one day we could meet up.

  11. Can’t believe dennis is getting rid of the F40. But gotta say that boss mustang looks like something mad max should be driving.

  12. Richard, need to find and build another cool 67 Goat… my car of choice… be looking soon as a friend and I are starting up a new way to serf the net… The Outer Web… be ready…

  13. Richard I Love the show, Never Miss It, You do some Great builds, I especially Liked the “Coyote” 67 Galaxie, I have a Couple of Projects I have been gathering parts for a while, Your show has given Me some Ideas that I want to incorporate into these Vehicles. It can get rather Cold here in winter and working away on the Toys is a Good way to help Winter pass. Is the BOSS 429 a Barn find or Is it a Build We haven’t seen Yet, I appreciate that Gas Monkey has done Quite a Few Ford Vehicles, Usually its a GM dominated World on Most shows but You Do Anything and thats what Keeps Me a Fan, keep em coming. WOOOOOO

  14. I am waiting to come down to get that gorgeous ford I am hoping to win. I spent some time in Round Rock area and a week at music row (forgot to leave), I think gmgb&g would be a great place to forget life for a while when I pick it up. Great car builds. Keep up the good work. (I hope Mark hasn’t beet the hell out of it too bad)

  15. Richard: when are you badass monkeys coming to London. (thats in the United Kingdom, small, but pretty little cool island just of coast of europe. Admittedly not quite as big as Texas but still a damn good laugh! Let’s call it a roadtrip as you Yanks would say, but probably knowing you boys it might end up being Hangover-esk.
    P.s if if you you chaps do come, there is one condition.
    You have to bring that chinese lady, Sue along.

  16. Mike Vuckovich, you’re a good friend. ALS is a terrible disease. Enjoy Todd as much as you can man. Best of luck to yall meeting Richard and Dennis! I think what you see is what you get with those guys, and what I’ve seen of them is pretty stand up. I bet they’ll buy you guys a drink no doubt. Keep up your good work Richard, Amarillo loves Gas Monkey! And buy those guys and damn drink! Lol.

  17. Hey Richard. I’ve been waiting for you to go to a REAL car auction. Hope you make up for all the flops at those local auctions. Oh, and the Gasser was ghastly. Way too much green and glitter. Sometimes less is more. Just sayin’ Good luck boys.

  18. I’d love to have you guys do something alittle different and give my drumset some gas monkey style love. Love the show and all the cars. You guys ROCK!

  19. Big fan of the show guys, love ya work.
    Would love to see what yas would do with some of our Aussie muscle cars,maybe a HK monaro or LX torana hatchback.
    Congratulations on your success guys.

  20. If you have any pull….tell powers that be to STOP the insanity and bring back SPEED channel or show Barrett-Jackson on Discovery…this channel swapping is ridiculous…I don’t have FOXsports2…I don’t want to miss the COPO or the F40 going across the block cuz it’s on a stupid channel….rant over.

  21. Love to see you guys working on classic cars and flipping them. Makes me remember why I still stare at cars longer than my wife. We’ll be in Dallas for the Dallas vs Pittsburg hockey game. Hope to have a burger at the GMG grill and see what’s all the talk about! Blessings guys!

  22. I looked through the Barret-Jackson listings. I saw a Lincoln Zephre but The Ferrari F40 didn’t have the red F40 logo on the rear wing. I watched the show and I distinctly saw that on there…. that little red logo does a lot for the car.

  23. Hey Richard , Just wanted to say my son and I love your show..I’m 65 years old and love the cars you do and all the comedy in your show.. I hope one day I can meet you. If your ever in the Atlanta GA area please let me know….Thanks Peg

  24. Older brother has a 63 split window vette you fellas might wanna see.. he also has a 66 impala parked next to it ..and outside in pole barn 63 chevy II with 18000 original miles and block

  25. I have a 65 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88. It is definitely a project car. I put new tires and a battery on the car. I think it needs a new starter. It has a 425 motor and I drove it a few times. I then got hurt in a work accident and have become disabled. I can’t afford to fix or finish the car. It has an awesome straight body that has been primed and now has surface rust but nothing serious. I would like to get about $3,000. for it. I really need to sell it if you’re not interested maybe you might know of a shop in California that might be interested. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

  26. Hey Richard best of luck at the auction to yall from the cold mtns in NC. If you ever get this way & need a 4×4 project I’ve got a fj40 with a small block swap that would make a nice ride. Or more your taste I have a 1930 model a thats very clean! So when your pockets fatten up after the sales gimme a holler hahaha, take care amigo

  27. Seriously Fox? You go to commercial during the gasmonkey mustang, what were you thinking? Its bad enough we have to switch between 3 channels, now this. Get it right next time and skip the dumb boat!


  29. What the hell I’m sitting at home watching Barrett-Jackson waiting for the Mustang Boss Fastback and all of a sudden Fox goes to commercial right after lot #1076 and as soon as they get back on the air they’re sell lot #1078! That just ruined my night!!!

  30. Are you F*^%ing serious!!! waited all night to see mustang go thru on barrett ackson and they skip it on the commercial!!!!!! unreal

  31. Hey Richard, since your in Az, you wanna buy Grand Torino, it would be a great build. Let me know. I got a couple of other cars as well.

  32. Saw Richard on Thursday evening @ Barrett-Jackson, while he was topside in the private lounge area. Saw Richard again a little later. Where? Why at the bar, hanging with some of his friends, of course. We left him alone. I’m sure he was tired of shaking hands, posing for pics and signing autographs. The place was packed. When I was back later this morning, Friday, noticed they rearranged and even added more chairs for the bidder section. By the way, to sit in the bidders section, you must pony up $500 per seat, plus register and be pre-screened to buy, and there’s lots of buyers. City of Scottsdale did a great job of putting up a nice new building, reconfiguring the lots so no more lower levels of cars in tents. Everything is now on the same level, with more tents added this year and there’s more vendors. Check out the all the great new cars in the Ford Factory section as soon as you enter the building through the main entrance. Parking is also better this year, as there is plenty more parking close to the auction instead of having to ride shuttle buses. Good Luck, Richard, especially on selling the COPO CRC Camaro. Be interesting to see what it sells for. There’s only one other 2013 COPO Camaro going up on the auction block, but it’s not a CRC and it’s only got a 427, not a 454 like Richard’s COPO. Oh yeah, saw Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Buddy Martin of Sox & Martin fame. Don is auctioning off both the Snake and Mongoose Mattel Hot Wheels sponsored Funny Cars, and also the Snake and Mongoose Transporters, all have been restored, except for the Mongoose funny car, which is a reproduction. He’s selling them altogether at one shot. One of the Sox & Martin ORIGINAL and Unrestored Fastback Hemi Cudas is going up for sale. So much great stuff to talk about, so little time.

  33. Say Boss,gotta tell ya that Bandit Ride was way kool man!!! You guy’s played that to the brim…..One of my all time favorite mmovies!!! Next one should be the General Lee,and maybe find a good Daisy to help build and Bar Tend???

  34. love the show, I restore datsuns and can appreciate the stress of trying to find parts in a crunch time if you ever build a Datsun 240 bring me in I’ll show you a thing or too. Love watching KC paint also its definetly an art.

  35. best show but i was doing the same thing as u guys r back 40 years ago,would still be doin it but heath reasons,cant do it now,watch the beers,i broke my neck with too many beers,that a interesting story

  36. @RR, will you be at Barrett-Jackson on Sunday as well? My grandson and I were thinking about going to see you, Aaron and the cars, of course:-)

  37. Gas Monkey just got raped at Barrett-Jackson. What a shame, that COPO Camaro is worth WAAAY more than is sold for…Very sad. Someone got a great freaking deal though!

  38. I missed the sale of the Mustang and The Copo. What did they bring for you guys. Love the show and super excited to see what the F40 brings. Good luck to Dennis on that. Too bad you sold it to him Richard.

  39. BJ auctions were not good to you guys. Try MECUM Auctions if they will let you. You would have sold them for more and had more fun. Just my thoughts

  40. I thought it was odd Fox stayed away from mentioning Richard or Gas Monkey while cars were going across. The only time Richard was on screen was far away shots or they were talking over him before COPO sold. Seemed like a snubbing.

  41. perhaps it’s been asked already, but, are you guys gonna pick up the lastest IROC-Z? i understand it’s extremely badass but i bet GMG could tweak it some more

  42. Richard, just had a flurry of brain activity: why not do your own auction(s)? You’ve got a great following. It could click. OK, that said, i’m now going back into my snow cave in upstate NY


  44. i want your clothing line i want a few shirts can you show me or send me what i,m reaching for i just get more reading material woa opps its posting oh shooo help

  45. Richard hey my name is Greg and I am from Croatian, it’s a small country in Europe, more specifically Balkan;)
    mainly I’m trying to watch your every show and I can tell you that I’m a big fan as well as my son is 5 years old!
    I wish you so much luck in new jobs and higher earnings as you want!

  46. LOVE your show, I never miss it. IMHO it is better than the others. The only thing are the tweets, VERY annoying and distracting. You guys are entertaining enough, you don’t need the fluff.

  47. PS: If you every run across a 1970 Mark Donohue Javlin you will have my attention. I had one in my teens and blew the #1 rod through the block. I guess the NOS was too much.

  48. Love and rust from the Netherlands.
    When you monkeys gonna soak an AMC Javelin
    with blood sweat and beers ?
    An metalic purple Javelin is one of the dopest cars ever !

    Keep up doing the good work !

  49. U guys got no idea how lucky u are down south . I’m from Minnesota and work for my dad at his autobody shop and I can’t tell u how many nasty cans of worms I’ve dug into dealing with rotted ass cars , don’t get me wrong love it to death up here but the rust in these parts spreads like the worst dam cancer lol…

    • That’s why I try to find cars from the South so the guys don’t have to deal with that as often. The salt on the roads up there do a number on the bottoms of the cars. I’ll take triple digit heat in the summer for mild winters any day of the week.

  50. Just looked at the Mach 1 that you have on Ebay off of tonights show. Looks like your going to come out ok on that car! Love the work you guys do on cars, and next time your in MN let me know! Not to far from Skip and I know quite a few bars around here where you can have yourself a nice cold Lite! One in particular has the coldest beer you’ll ever have! Be glad to buy you a couple 13/14 cold ones!

  51. Oh how awesome it is to live in Scottsdale! I love all the stuff here. Car shows,auctions,swap meets,the whole 9 yards and then some with a chopped top.

  52. Did I just see the 69 Boss 429 Mustang just sell on Meecum Auction in Kissimmee Florida for $417,000.00 ???? The car was touted as “unmolested” like you guys said it was. No wonder Richard was in tears after Scottsdale !!! Set a reserve next time and forget about the producers of th show.

  53. Dearvrichard love the show my problem is i cut grass for a livin i got old mower old ass truck what i need is a gmg make over old truck like your shop truck give the mower agmg attitude adjustment and with your permision call it the grass monkeys cut grass and kickn ass in a neighborhood near you helpa brother out bussiness slippn dont want to lose the little lady and house just a little would be alot thanks for u time st louis rules gmg and the grass monkeys st louis good place to expand

  54. How pissed do u think aaron would really get if u cut a “few”inches off his beard as a little prank lol I work for amtrak I can get anywhere u guys ever do your own car shows for all your fans would love to come and see some of your work great show bro

  55. Ihr seid cool, geile Autos, geile Typen, der Ferrari F40 ist der Hammer, obwohl der sehr teuer war, Reparatur, habt ihr trotz dem hingekriegt, super

  56. Do you have a rare 69 boss 429 mustang in your colection? I had a chance to see one in wichita ks around 95. At segwick county park. Do you think that I think it was a chrysler proto terbine jet convertidle car alrite?

  57. Man, why do you guys insist on LOSING SO MUCH at Auctions?? Auctions are where you buy, not sell. Open a warehouse storefront like Danny Kocher… or Internet them, there are people looking for that certain cars.. Obviously you must be getting Promo bucks from Barrett Jackson. lay off the green and rust… hire a good custom painter – take it to the next level.

  58. Hey Richard ,watch your show all the time. I saw that dart you auctioned off at Scottsdale ,that was baddd
