Fast N' Loud is an American reality television series that premiered on Discovery Channel in 2012. The show features Richard Rawlings, co-founder of Gas Monkey Garage, and Aaron Kaufmann, a master mechanic and tattoo artist, as they search for rare, classic cars, which they then restore and sell for profit.

The show is set in Dallas, Texas, where the Gas Monkey Garage is located. Rawlings and Kaufmann have made a name for themselves in the car restoration industry by taking on bold and ambitious projects. The show offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process of transforming old and rusty cars into beautiful and powerful machines.

Fast N' Loud also features the crew of Gas Monkey Garage, including office manager Christie Brimberry, who keeps the guys in check, and several mechanics who help with the restoration process. Rawlings and Kaufmann are known for their strict deadlines and high expectations, and the crew is often pushed to their limits to get projects done on time.

The show has a high energy and fast-paced feel, with lots of action and excitement as the guys work to hit their goals. Each episode showcases a different car restoration project, with Rawlings and Kaufmann working to find and purchase the perfect car, then taking it apart and rebuilding it to their exact specifications.

One of the unique aspects of Fast N' Loud is that the guys are not afraid to take risks and try new things. They often experiment with different engines, parts, and designs to make their cars one-of-a-kind. Rawlings and Kaufmann are also very involved in the design process, often sketching out their vision for each car before beginning work.

In addition to the car restorations, the show also features the personal lives of the crew members. Viewers get to see the camaraderie between the guys as they work together to achieve their goals. Rawlings and Kaufmann have a close friendship, and their banter and joking around adds levity to the show.

Fast N' Loud has been praised for its authenticity, as the show does not use any scripts or rehearsed lines. Instead, the dialogue and interactions between the crew are all captured organically as they work together. This gives the show a genuine feel, and viewers can relate to the crew as real people instead of scripted characters.

The success of Fast N' Loud has led to spin-off shows, including Misfit Garage, which follows some of the mechanics from Gas Monkey as they strike out on their own. There is also a Fast N' Loud franchise in Europe, featuring different sets of mechanics and car enthusiasts.

Overall, Fast N' Loud is a highly entertaining and engaging show for anyone who loves cars or enjoys seeing behind-the-scenes of a successful business. Rawlings and Kaufmann are charismatic hosts who bring a lot of personality to the show, and the crew's dedication and hard work is impressive to watch. With plenty of drama, humor, and excitement, Fast N' Loud is a great choice for anyone looking for a fun and engaging reality show.

Fast N' Loud is a series that is currently running and has 16 seasons (167 episodes). The series first aired on June 6, 2012.
