We have to give props to our Gas Monkey Garage fans from South Africa because a lot of them are making their way to Dallas for visits. The most enthusiastic fans among them include Gabi Axford from Johannesburg and Robin Harrison from Pretoria.
Gabi became hooked on Fast N’ Loud from the very start. She really admires Richard and wants to open up a garage of her own in the future. We get a lot of people who say that, but we believe her based on her passion and knowledge of classic cars. She started watching Chip Foose and Overhaulin’ at age three and Gabi’s mom has connections in the car and motorcycle communities back home. Gabi’s long term goal is to travel Historic Route 66 in a Boss 496 Mustang from Chicago to the Grand Canyon and on a Harley from Arizona to Las Angeles.

You could see Robin’s enthusiasm right from the start and he proved it by spending a lot of time at the Garage that day hoping to meet Richard and the guys. He is among our international fans whose sole purpose for travelling to Dallas was to visit Gas Monkey Garage. Travelling almost 10,000 miles to see us is true dedication and very much appreciated.
It was very nice having them both at Gas Monkey and we thank them for their love of Gas Monkey Garage and Fast N’ Loud.
