I like the show. I think it's all entertainment. Just take it for what it is and enjoy when your not wrenching on your own Jeep. Good catch on the shirt.

My thought always goes to what do these guys do for a living that they can afford to just go out and pay all that money for those rebuilt cars. I want to get in that line of work! I can always use more toys to wrench on.

As evidenced by how much people spend on their jeeps. I wonder what percentage of people on here have enough saved for retirement.

In the last episode when they were buying Emmitt Smith's Mercedes, there was a beautiful J-truck right next to it...I was surprised Dennis Collins wasn't checking that out to buy it.

I hope the new giant shop he just moved into wont be his downfall.

OCC/Paul Tuttle Sr built that big shop and they're trying to re-fi....claiming the building dropped in value! Practically bankrupt.
At least Richard makes the cars safer w/new brakes, fuel system & lines etc..Some of the work is shoddy, like torching spring coils to lower a car.
But I've never seen anybody bring a mechanic w/them to check it over. And he's saving some cool cars from rusting away forever. Many cars he buys, the owner admits they'll never finish it..so he does. Aaron seems like he won't let a death trap out the door.

Compared to the rest of the garbage on TV, Fast and Loud is actually a pretty good 'reality show'.
We all know it's not all real, but some of it is, and it's entertaining.

They don't have the members acting like they're all pissed at each other all the time, faking getting in fights, extra women on the show creating bs scenarios, etc. It's less drama, and more car fab and auction prep.

It's not for everyone, but I'll tell ya now that most of TV isn't for me. I'd rather be in the woods or on the tractor.

Long Live Gas Monkey Garage.
And, personally, I think Richard is loaded and so is Dennis.

Richard is loaded. Look him up on Google. He owned a very successful printing and advertising company in Dallas. Net worth is around $8M.

I cant get the vid to show up on here, it keeps saying vid not available. But here is a short video of the two betting 50k that they can beat the Bullrun record time and all the fancy equipment they used to help them do it.

Hey, it's another hometown user. Keep the Jeep spirit alive, there ain't many left around anymore!

I feel bad for anyone who buys these cars.... he is just as bad as shady car dealer.
Luckily everything on TV is scripted, except COPS.
