Fast N' Loud: 20 Cars The Gas Monkey Crew Turned Into Gems

Fast N’ Loud is a popular television show that features the work of the Gas Monkey Garage, which is based out of Texas. The show is centered around the restoration of classic vehicles and profiting from such restorations, allowing the show to teach would-be car collectors a lot about the vehicle-flipping business. The crew at Gas Monkey Garage are very experienced in the art of fabrication, and a lot of their vehicles come out with top-notch designs. This means that chances are, you're bound to see a Gas Monkey custom car at an auto show near you at some point in time, and the one-of-a-kind portfolio is growing more and more with every year.

This creates a huge market for people who are trying to see the awesome designs, and there are so many that it can be hard to keep up. The crew has restored all kinds of different vehicles over time, including countless classic Mustangs, Porsches, Camaros, and even old pickup trucks. There's no car that's too out of place for the crew at the Gas Monkey Garage to restore; in fact, many of the cars are brought in by private customers who don’t have the means or the expertise to design such a custom vehicle on their own. Fast N’ Loud is a breakout success and one that'll continue to grow with the crew at the Gas Monkey Garage, creating some truly one-of-a-kind vehicles that'll leave car enthusiasts asking for more.
