The lead guy has an interesting persona but the show is quite lame and pointless. Arbitrary deadlines and they pick some of the worst cars imaginable to flip.

Oh, don't get me wrong... I watch the show regularly. It's entertaining, if nothing else and they do get some interesting "projects". For instance: I'm not a fan of spraying clear lacquer over the rusted paint which they seem to like to do, or fixing up a '59 Rambler wagon. But, they flip with minimum investment and there are folks out there who like that kind of stuff.

As far as the logos... c'mon now. A beautiful COPO with huge GasMonkey decals on the hood, trunk, and both quarters, PLUS Rawlings' name above the windows. Really?

I like the show, and I don't mind them hacking on a 69 lincoln town boat, but I wouldn't want them hacking an F-40, or a COPO camaro. Not cool. I haven't seen the episode where they hacked the F-40 but I have seen episodes where they messed cars up. I can't keep up with it.

Love the show; they are a great shop. Aaron is great for a mechanic for someone who never went to school for it.

I am not a fan of "reality" TV, but I do like this show. Can't stand the cheap builds and the clear over rust. That's why Casey is my fav on the show, cuz he will call RR out on this.

Am I the only one who actually likes it when RR gets "screwed" at auctions?

But overall they do put out some nice cars. Makes it worth watching!

Not a big fan of the larger cowl hood on the COPO and doesn't look like you get A/C or power steering either? As a side note, I still think Junkyard Wars was the best.

I thought the 56 Nomad they built for Dale Jr was nice.
They have made a few good cars but most of them were not worth the effort.

I was there yesterday, food is good. Bar IMO sucked because I am a picky beer drinker and only drink Modelo and Lone Star which they don't carry :(

This is why....

2013 COPO Camaro #041 built by Richard Rawlings from Gas Monkey Garage at the GM Factory. This is a once in a lifetime chance to own this one of one Gas Monkey Garage COPO Camaro. Included in the documentation are all the Build Sheets for the chassis and spec sheets for the LS7 based 427 with a 2-speed Powerglide transmission. This is a advertized as 8 second ¼ mile car which makes it the fastest COPO Camaro ever built. All of the torque stamps have the Gas Monkey Garage logo which signifies this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to honor the COPO Legacy. The complete build with Richard Rawlings in the GM Factory and raceway testing will be featured on an upcoming episode of the hit show Fast N Loud. A limited production of 69 cars was selected to commemorate the original number of ZL-1 COPO Camaros made in 1969. COPO, which stands for Central Office Production Order, was Chevrolet's special order system, notoriously used by dealers in the 1960s to build high-performance models that couldn't be found anywhere else. The second coming of the COPO name is an extension of the legacy started in 1969, when the first purpose-built Camaro drag racing specialty car was designed to compete with the quickest in NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. Born to dominate in a straight line, this beast is specially engineered to punish the strip, not to mention the competition. COPO is a true racing machine. It is specifically offered for off-highway, competitive NHRA use only. It cannot be registered, titled, licensed, or driven on public roads or highways. The COPO Camaro is designed to NHRA racing specifications, including a solid axle and a full chrome-moly roll cage. Inside, most of the standard sound-deadening and power accessories have been deleted in order to optimize weight for NHRA racing. Also included are a pair of racing bucket seats (no rear seat), a safety harness for the driver, a competition floor shifter and Chevrolet Performance gauges. **NOT STREET LEGAL, SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY**

They usually don't like to touch anything that is fairly new especially brand new. I wouldn't bid on that Camaro even if i had the money just so i could over pay something with their hideous decals all over it. YUCK!
