Anyone see Fast & Loud Last night?

They bought a 68 Mustang Fastback here in Buckeye AZ for 26g's that was pretty much just a shell and re-created the Bullit Mustang for Steve McQueens son and they re-created the famous chase scene. Instead of a Charger they used a New Challenger, show was pretty cool, however the original Mustang with the 330hp 390 one legger sure did produce a lot more tire smoke in my opinion. The mustang they built was very sweet!Best Fast & Loud in a long time! What was cool is they went through the same stuff we do building our cars, wrongs parts, things don't fit etc. We are not alone Interesting too was Richard showed up at his garage in a beautiful Black over Red GT Fastback that sounded real sweet!

Now everyone with a trashed fastback shell thinks they'll get 26K for it.

The guys that sold the car to Rawlings are bigger azzclowns than him. I donít believe for second that he actually paid $26k.

Aren't the new repo bodies around $15K?
Why wouldn't they just buy one of those to start? Probably because it wouldn't create enough drama.

They had 30 days to do the build. They wouldn't have been able to get it finished that quick without a roller and they needed all the exterior trim and McQueen wanted a more or less stock suspension from the period. The shell is $18.5k plus shipping that brings it to about $20k. It comes truck freight and according to CJPP there is a 12 week lead time. For as old as it was the metal wasn't too bad.

It's typical Gas Monkey, poorly researched and rushed. They're customizers/restomod not restoration guys so they don't see this kind of thing all the time. They just didn't get the point was to build a 68 period correct car and not a car that looked like a 68 but was a restomod. The guys aren't bad they just don't restore period correct cars. Having Russell around will help them a ton.

The roller price was high but trying to get it for $10k is even more of a laugh.

Man, they could have driven 30 miles to my house, and I'd have sold them one for that. Hell, I'd have driven it to them!

I don’t watch F & L but I did watch this episode. I hate all the made up drama, BS timelines, and fabricated setbacks. I wish there was a show that would just get a project and actually show more of the work and what’s involved using it as a somewhat teaching moment. They could stretch each car out for several episodes. They could show the thought processes involved in a restoration and the sequencing of events. I would also prefer a smaller crew working on the cars.
With some of the builds I’ve seen here we have folks on this site that could create just the show I’m looking for.

Yeah, I caught the episode on my DVR and blew past all the commercials... It was cool at the end... and I liked their "Mini-Re-creation" tribute film... It was cool...

About what I expected....

I really don't watch F&L anymore, but I tuned in for this episode...

I'll watch "Misfit Garage" for more laughs instead of fake drama "F&L"....
