Fast N' Loud is a reality styled Discovery Channel TV show featuring Richard Rawlings and his crew from the Dallas, Texas-based Gas Monkey Garage as they search for tired and run-down cars, and restore them for profit. Fast N' Loud is unique in the reality genre, since the episodes sometimes incorporate a skit into the theme of the episode.
The show was successful in its first season. The show also has a spin-off show called Misfit Garage and Fast N' Loud: Demolition Theater in which Richard and other employees, and also the "victims" of the same clip watch these with their comments
Rawlings along with former GMG mechanic Aaron Kaufman were invited to participate in a motorcycle build-off with long established bike builders Orange County Choppers, Paul Jr. Designs, and Jesse James. Rawlings and Kaufman came in 2nd to Paul Jr. with James coming in 3rd.
Fast N' Loud is produced for Discovery by Pilgrim Studios while Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder serve as executive producers.
