Fast N Loud Season 5 Episode 12 Big, Bad C-10 Build, Part II
Fast N Loud - S05E10 - Big, Bad C-10 Build Part II - Full Show
The plan to build Gas Monkey’s coolest show truck continues as Richard
hopes to deliver a 1976 Chevy C-10 to the Cattle Baron’s Ball.
Meanwhile,Richard tries to flip a ‘66 Continental and a ‘51 Caddy.
Also, Richard stops by Fired Up to check on the rent.
In each episode of Fast N Loud, motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and
mechanical prodigy Aaron 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. While in Rome, theyll
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?.
Richard and Aaron travel the back roads, searching barns, swap meets, and
open fields for that one rare ride to restore. They always have at least
one big build project at their garage — thats their big money to keep the
doors open. But choosing the right car is the trick. Richard is the man
with the eye, the gift for seeing that rare find; while Aaron is the master
mechanic who decides whether or not these relics are too far gone or the
perfect basis for a Gas Monkey overhaul.
Meanwhile, Richard is always looking for a quick flip — a car that
someone has undervalued that with just a little work he can turn for twice
the profit. But no matter what — be it the major project of the week, or
a quick flip — the boys always make sure these cars are fast and loud.
