‘Fast N’ Loud’ Episode Guide (Aug. 18): The Guys Find a 1930s Model A to Chop

“Chopped and Dropped Model A, Part I” Mid-Season Premiere (08/18/14) – Aaron and Richard find themselves a 1931 Model A to chop! What begins as a simple build quickly grows into a grand green machine. Elsewhere, with less than a month to build this chromed out 1960s show car from the ground up, Richard’s wild plan may be too much.

Discovery Channel’s “Fast N’ Loud” centers around motor mastermind and self-described “petrol-sexual” Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufman as they search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars, which they buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. While ‘in Rome,’ they’ll sometimes get in with the local customs and characters — the all American, full throttle road trip with attitude. Ultimately, Richard and Aaron will work days and nights to finish their cars to make auction. But will their blood, sweat and beers translate into cold hard cash?

As far back as the 1950s, America has been a virtual graveyard of classic cars. Across the country, vintage vehicles can be found rusting in overgrown fields, abandoned back lots, and musty garages. From ’57 Chevys to ’73 Trans Ams, these machines are screaming to be brought back to life. To most they’re just rust buckets, but to Rawlings and his crew they’re a goldmine waiting to be excavated. In fact, that’s their specialty: they turn rust into gold.
