The SeriesIn each episode of “Fast N’ Loud”, Rawlings, accompanied by the rest of the Gas Monkey staff, hunts for old cars all over the USA to purchase and restore at their garage, located in Dallas. The cast occasionally gets involved with the customs of the places they visit, however, the pressure is often put on them as they have to meet the deadlines, and ultimately make profit from their purchases. The cast mainly focuses on classic cars, which can found in forgotten, remote places, with some of the cars being a ’57 Chevrolet and ’73 Trans Am. The cast ultimately brings the cars “back to life”, recognizing that they could be reused and transformed into amazing vehicles. After Richard buys the car, the Garage does all the works on it, and the cars are eventually sent to auctions, thus the cast almost always makes a considerable amount money from their efforts.
