Fast N' Loud Returns for its Second Season

One man's rust bucket is another man's treasure couldn't be more true for car fanatics Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman of Discovery Channel's FAST N' LOUD.  Dead set on finding automobile treasures in Texas junkyards and beyond, the boys are back on a quest to find some of America's junkiest cars, restore them into classic rides and turn a nice big profit. This season goes into overdrive when Richard sees an opportunity to expand Gas Monkey Garage and buy one of the rarest cars in the world, the Ferrari F-40. Start your engines for FAST N' LOUD on Discovery Channel Monday, February 18 at 9 PM ET/PT.

FAST N' LOUD motor mastermind Richard and mechanical prodigy Aaron are searching high and low for forgotten and neglected vintage cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. Most assume these old classics, from '57 Chevys to '73 Trans Ams, are rust buckets - but to this crew, they're potential goldmines. Richard and Aaron need big projects - and, more importantly, big profits - to keep the doors open at Gas Monkey Garage. While Richard has the eye for spotting that rare find, Aaron is the master mechanic who decides if these relics are too far gone or prime for a Gas Monkey overhaul. Together, this dynamic duo travels the back roads of Texas and surrounding states, scouring barns, swap meets and open fields in search of these rare rides. Once Richard wheels and deals for a good price, the real work begins back at the garage, where the guys race against the clock to finish the job in time for auction. When Richard realizes his one-build-at-a-time business model is too risky, he decides it's time to grow Gas Monkey Garage. With Aaron and the rest of the crew on board for a bigger location, multiple projects can be tackled at once - giving Richard and Aaron more opportunities for finding and financing their next big flip. Richard comes across the opportunity to buy one of the rarest cars in the world, the Ferrari F-40 - and it could be the million-dollar sale he's been dreaming of. FAST N' LOUD returns to Discovery Channel with all-new episodes beginning Monday, February 18 at 9 PM ET/PT.
