In each episode of FAST N’ LOUD, hot rod hunter Richard Rawlings and the Gas Monkey crew search for forgotten and derelict classic cars across the country to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. While ‘in Rome,’ they’ll sometimes get in with the local customs and characters — the all American, full throttle road trip with attitude. Ultimately, the Gas Monkey Crew will work days and nights to finish their cars to hit their tight deadlines. But will their blood, sweat and beers translate into cold hard cash?

As far back as the 1950s, America has been a virtual graveyard of classic cars. Across the country, vintage vehicles can be found rusting in overgrown fields, abandoned back lots, and musty garages. From ’57 Chevys to ’73 Trans Ams, these machines are screaming to be brought back to life. To most, they’re just rust buckets, but to Rawlings and his crew they’re a gold mine waiting to be excavated. In fact, that’s their specialty: they turn rust into gold.

Richard and his crew travel the back roads, searching barns, swap meets, and open fields for that one rare ride to restore. They always have at least one big build project at their garage — that’s their big money to keep the doors open. But choosing the right car is the trick.

Once Richard wheels and deals for a good price, it’s back to the Garage to set the design plan and begin the major teardown. Then, the major work begins. It’s always a race against the clock to get these cars finished: time is money at Gas Monkey Garage and the quicker they finish their cars, the quicker they can get to auction.

But there’s always some fun time worked into their crazy schedules, and no matter how nuts their day gets, you can bet you’ll see some donuts in the driveway or a test drive of a great car.

Meanwhile, Richard is always looking for a quick flip — a car that someone has undervalued that with just a little work he can turn for twice the profit. But no matter what — be it the major project of the week, or a quick flip — the boys always make sure these cars are fast and loud.
