Season Premiere Monday March 12 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel
Buckle up, motor fans! Hot rod hunter Richard Rawlings and his Gas Monkey crew are back for another wild ride, and they’re revving up more engines than ever in brand-new episodes of Discovery Channel’s hit series FAST N’ LOUD.
This season, Richard and the Monkeys are tuning into a whole new groove at Gas Monkey Garage with bigger builds and higher horsepower. Motor mastermind Richard Rawlings travels the back roads, searching barns, garages and open fields for that one rare ride to restore. Once the deal is sealed, it’s back to Gas Monkey Garage where Richard and his team work to turn the cars into gold. The new season takes Richard and the Monkeys into unfamiliar territory as they attempt to break new ground in the build space, risking their reputation in the process. Also, throughout the season, guest builder Big Mike works with the Monkeys to build custom hot rods.
Going where no Monkey has gone before, Richard and his crew build their first import tuner – a ’75 Datsun 280Z – with the help of Big Mike, but it’s a race against time as they work to get the car ready for SEMA, a premier automotive specialty products trade event. Richard wants to kick the doors down “Monkey style” on this build and orders all of the parts directly from Japan, but his foolproof plan quickly goes south when Big Mike and the Monkeys run into a problem with the tools. As delays with fabrication and fitment pile up, Richard pulls the plug on a full color change for the car in order to keep the build on schedule. Now, all Richard can do is hope the Monkeys finish on time without making Gas Monkey’s first tuner build a complete bust.
