Richard Rawlings, famed for his Gas Monkey empire and the hit show Fast n Loud, returns in a spin-off. In this show he and his team take mechanic shops in need of help and invest time and money to turn them around.
Russell J. Holmes,
The show tosses in more doing than most which I really appreciate. You actually get to see how and why certain things are done. I enjoy the whys. The amount of drama is kept to the bare minimum thankfully. I guess you do have to some of that unfortunately. There's some wicked talented and smart people working here. I also like the way the guys aren't micro-managed to death.
For the folks dumping on Kevin, now in 2018, he's worked for Dave for 14 years. It also sounds like he and Dave go further back than that. You ever notice that there's a lot more people in the background who never get face time? He's the shop foreman. Someone has to do it. Also, he seems to be at the table when some big decisions have been made. Remember the business existed before and will after the show goes off the air. Whether you like him or not, there's a chain of command that tasks must go through. Dave does Dave things. Dave has Kevin get further into the minutia. And the guys with tools in their hands get deeper still.
