eBay Motors Welcomes Gas Monkey Garage

New to the crew of contributors at eBay Motors is the team of Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman from Gas Monkey Garage. With their core enthusiasm for all things with motors and a fantastic eye for seeing the potential in vehicles found in any shape or form, the gang at Gas Monkey Garage is a perfect fit for the eBay Motors blog where we’re not afraid to showcase people who can stretch the boundaries of resourcefulness and customization.

Not familiar with Fast N’ Loud TV series on the Discovery Channel? In each episode of Fast N’ Loud, Rawlings and Kaufman search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. They always have at least one big build project at their garage — and now they will feature a build project here on the eBay Motors blog.

When asked about bringing projects forward on our blog, Richard responded with the following:

“We’re really excited to work with eBay on this project because without eBay, the work we do would be damn near impossible. We’ve been using eBay for years to source parts for the cars we restore, and now we’ll be able to tell the story of each of our projects from beginning to end on the eBay Motors blog.”

    Richard, I would like to say I love the show and the fact of when you and your crew keep a car to the original paint and just simple clear coat it. It has that awesome rat-rod sleeper look. I have recently purchased a 1975 Oldsmobile Delta88 convertible and have many plans with it, for now to drive it with my family. Keep the cool stuff flowing, I would love to have you guys find a car like mine and Gas-Monkey Style it.

    I have a 1964 Cadillac Sedan Deville 4 window. i want to restore it for myself. What would you think the cost would be It runs engine 429 is great. It needs interior work I have most of the parts that would be needed to repair the body. Needs painting, Coach top, interior speedometer custer is cracked I have a replacement, door panels need to be redone as well as seats (looking to go to a green /white combination. I want the car painted back to it’s original color Green.
    How much would it cost me.

  35. Stevie says:

  36. Tommy says:

    Hey Richard I was wondering if u can fix up my 2006 Toyota supra

  37. Rod says:

    Richard I have a 80 cj5 and it needs help, feel like doing a lil pro bono work, I want to get it fixed right, always told my mom I was and paint iy orange, I lost my mom in Dec, and have lost interest in every thing, being a disabled vet, and still getting no money from Gov. Obama is counting it now I bet before he puts it in his wallet, Tell all the guys I said whatsssssssssssss upppppppppppp. God Bless

  38. david mcwaters says:

    I love the show.I have a 2012 dodge ram1500 it looks real nice, what would it take to get GasMonkey decal on my hood and tail gate?

  39. Martin Williams says:

    Outstanding program, Richard, Aaron et al, look forward to it every week over here in UK.
    Quality cars such Aston Martins, RR’s, Ferraris etc have a brass plate under the bonnet with the name of the head mechanic who worked on it. When you guys do an all out job like the wonderful Bel-Air, the F40 or many others which in their final setup are more GMG than the original makers, why not do similar ?
    I would be influenced if I knew AK had been boss man on a rebuild I was considering buying.
    Keep up the great work.

  40. S Neli Patrick says:

    Richard loved yr show & all the cars that u & kauffman built I’m S.Neli Patrick all the way from India. Big fan of u both keep up the good work. May God bless both of u with lots of cars to work on & lots of green money in wallets to blow over lots & lots of cold beer. someday if I get the chance I would like to come visit your shop & maybe get myself an All American Muscle Car. But I guess I hav to study first so catch chu guys in the future.

  46. john ragland says:

    ive been watching you guys for a while and every now and then your out on your lot with a 49 or 50 olds 2 dr doing brodies. is that an 76 or 88 and is this one of your cars for sale?

  47. Brad Hunter says:

    To all the “Monkeys” past and present, GREAT JOB. We all know that Richard is the “old silverback” but A-Ron is the “Alpha” of the pack and keeps the jungle in order. I have been watching program from beginning, and I can’t remember if you guys have ever done (I don’t mean just flip)an older 64-68 GTO. My first car was a 65, dread ever selling it, and would love to get my hands on another, any help would be greatly appreciated, and would love to see what you guys would do with “The Goat” a true American classic, and gateway car to the MUSCLE CAR era. If you come across anything interesting please contact me. Love the C/10 build so far, Richard that is one hell of a donation for a bunch of Baron’s. Hope you and the Monkeys at least get a filet out of the deal……
