Plot Synopsis

FAST N' LOUD follows automotive mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufman at the Dallas-based Gas Monkey Garage, as they return derelict rides to their former glory and get them back on the road -- but not without putting their own spin on them first. Richard and Aaron need big projects -- and big profits -- to keep Gas Monkey's doors open. Together, they travel the back roads of Texas, scouring barns, swap meets and open fields in search of rare rides to restore. Once Richard wheels and deals for a good price, the real work begins back at the garage, where the guys race against the clock to finish the job in time for auction. Richard, a Fort Worth native and owner of the Gas Monkey, has always had an extreme passion for cars. He owned three hot rods by the time he graduated from high school, and even took a bullet in the early '90s fighting off a carjacker who tried to steal his '65 Mustang 2+2 Fastback. Aaron, a restoration visionary, is entirely self-taught. A naturally talented mechanic determined to make things his own way, it was easy for him to fall into hot rod work -- and his sharp skills and eye for design landed him a job at Gas Monkey Garage. On Monday, February 18, 2013 at 9pm ET, Discovery aired the Season 2 premiere of this series, immediately following a one-hour special, "Revved Up," during which Richard and Aaron held a launch party for the second season, while reflecting on the program's very first episode. Less than four months later, FAST N' LOUD returned for its third season on Monday, June 10, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery, featuring the crew renovating a wrecked Ferrari F-40, '58 Corvette C1 and a Dead Head tour bus. On Monday, March 23, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery, FAST N' LOUD returned for a new season, immediately following an all-day (9am-9pm) marathon of encore episodes. In the night's new episode, "'71 Scat Pack Challenger Part I," Richard and Aaron transform a vintage '71 Dodge Scat Pack Challenger by using the power of a 2015 Scat Pack Challenger under the hood. Richard invests in a concert venue and a '57 Shorty School bus gets a makeover with hilarious results. Discovery premiered the seventh season of FAST N' LOUD on Monday, September 7, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. This season begins with a new mantra for Richard: "Big Risk, Big Reward," and he will roll the dice on some of Gas Monkey Garage's most expensive builds ever, while Aaron and his team attempt to conquer new technologies to create one-of-a kind masterpieces. Richard starts his quest by scoring a '78 Cutlass, so Aaron can build Gas Monkey's first ever lowrider -- something he's never attempted before. Richard and Aaron also hit the road to pick up a classic red '68 Cadillac convertible, giving it the luxury treatment in a risky bid to attract a higher caliber of buyer -- even as costs escalate. Later, Richard heads to Kentucky to look at a prime '70 Ferrari 365, as his team attempts to soup up a near-totaled 2005 Ford GT. Richard also lands in Camaro heaven when he discovers a barn full of 16 vintage specimens. On Monday, January 4, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, Discovery premiered the eighth season of FAST N' LOUD, immediately following an all-day marathon (9am-9pm) of encore episodes. In the Season 8 opener, "Racing a '67 Dodge Dart - Part 1," Richard receives a drag race challenge from a couple of Internet upstarts, so he changes gears on his big '67 Dart build to transform it into the ultimate dragster. On Monday, September 5, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel premiered a new season of FAST N' LOUD, immediately following a 10-hour marathon (10am-8pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "Harley and Me," a 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA '45 is rebuilt for a vintage motorcycle race in New Jersey. A new season of FACT N' LOUD premiered on Monday, January 16, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel, immediately following a nine-hour marathon (Noon-9pm) of encore episodes. The new season kicks off when Richard and Aaron come across a rare '55 Chevy. With the Barrett-Jackson Northeast auction on the horizon, the crew must work quickly to turn this beat up car into a hot classic. If they can finish in time, Richard will be able to bring the car to auction and secure a major payout. With the monkeys left back at the garage to work on the build, Aaron takes another run at the notoriously dangerous Pike's Peak road race and Richard opens a new Gas Monkey Bar and Grill in Key West, Florida. Then, Richard, Aaron and the monkeys head back in time, working on classic builds including an '80 El Camino and a '65 VW. Richard also returns to his high school roots when he finds and builds his very first high school car, a '74 Comet - a hot rod he WISHES he drove 20 years ago! Meanwhile, another dream comes to fruition when the Smokey and the Bandit fan club finds Richard the other car from his youth, a Red Trans Am. In the biggest undertaking of the season, the Gas Monkey Crew decides to build a race car, pulling out all the stops. Now all that's left to do is find a willing challenger. On Monday, October 16, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel premiered the thirteenth season of FAST N' LOUD. With Aaron Kaufman's departure at the end of last season, Richard and his crew are entering a new stage at Gas Monkey Garage, setting out to prove the shop is still going strong. Richard and his team search high and low for forgotten and derelict vintage cars to buy and restore, and this season they're determined to go big - literally - by finding an original 1973 Chevy P30 Step Van and turning it into a hot rod. Throughout the season, guest builders Big Mike Sajid and Brian Bass also show off their skills and work with the Monkeys to build impressive hot rods. Without Aaron, the Monkeys work harder than ever before to turn even the most neglected cars into gold, and with Richard's eye for rare finds, the team gets their hands on some unique cars - including a 1965 Shelby GT Mustang. However, these rare cars come with hefty price tags. Will Richard and his crew at Gas Monkey Garage be able to finish cars and turn a profit without Aaron, or will they lose sight of looming deadlines with too many opinions on each build?

On Monday, November 20, 2017 from 9-11pm ET/PT, Discovery premiered the Season 13 finale of FAST N' LOUD. In the two-hour season ender, "The Race: Busch vs. Logano," Richard and the Monkeys push to finish Kurt Busch's custom '72 Pantera in time for his grudge race against fellow NASCAR superstar Joey Logano and his Factory 5 Shelby Daytona.
