Wish Aaron a Happy Birthday and Win the Shirt Off His Back!


Hey guys, Sunday is Aaron’s Birthday! You know he’ll probably be in his birthday suit, so we want to give YOU the shirt off his back. Here’s how you can win it (yes, this contest is also open to our international fans):

  • Post an Instagram video of you wishing Aaron a Happy Birthday in your own way
  • Use the hashtag #GMGBday when you post the video
  • Submit your video by the end of the day Sunday 1/26
  • Aaron will pick his favorite on Tuesday (he’ll be out of town until then) and that person will win the shirt off his back!

Sounds easy enough, right? Get on it!

I love ya’lls show, Richard and yourself, make the show, but all the crew brings extra comedy and experience to the show as well. I just wish I was a part of it. I’m a retired custom painter and outlaw Pro-Stock drag racer and I purchased a ’59 El Camino, which my wife and I plan on rebuilding. Hope we can do as good of a job as you guys. You guys keep up the good work.

  49. ARRON,
    I live in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. You have been MY favorite TV car guy since the show started. SOME say that everyone has a double. MY friends say that YOU are MY double. First off, You love everything FORD, Your life is one big blue oval, but You HATE MUSTANGS, well… I am the founder of THAT club and though I hate Mustangs, George Folmer’s Trans Am Boss is ONE of My dream cars. With Our outlook on cars being so similar, it ONLY makes sense that You choose to hang Your hat on the VERY car that identifies ME! For ME.. there is the 1966 McLaren/Amon Ford GT Mk II and the 1963 Falcon hardtop, THEN there is ALL other Fords(and ignor everything else). I purchased My first car in 1984 which is a 1963 Falcon Sprint Hardtop with factory 4 gear trans, I began auto-crossing it in the early 90s and slowly developed it into a track car that is more fun than sex. Driving a fast 63 Falcon will make one laugh hysterically as You pass an M3 while tossing grandma’s compact left & right through the cork-screw at Laguna Seca. I use Bo Ljungfeldt’s Monte Carlo #221 on the car. While My finances have limited the level of build and recent set-backs have rendered it inactive, I still have it and My NEW dream is of one day running around Miller Motorsports park with You in YOUR 63, Keith Davidson in His white #63 and Michael Eisenbergs black FIA Sprint. Watch Me on U tube at Infineon, the video is titled DJSHOSER.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOO! from the heart of Alexander Gerrits, President Golden Gate chapter, Falcon Club of America and FORD FANATIC FOREVER!

  50. I have no clue if you will read this 8 months after your birthday. But this should blow your mind. My mother who passed when i was young was born on jan. 24th, my father also jan 24th i was due on jan. 24th, my father took my mom on motorcycle ride that day to try to get me out! Lol i held on for 5 days more. I was born 29th. But 24thi is very signifcant to me. To bad i just discovered this. Happy belated birthday bro!!!
