adidas superstars black and white Aaron Kaufman talks about his life after Fast N Loud
But the hirsute Kaufman is turning his back and his beard on all of that to go his own way. Rawlings said Gas Monkey Garage would continue. “It is a big hit to GMG,” he said of Kaufman’s departure, “but please note that it would be an insult to everyone here at Gas Monkey who has been putting in the work these past few years to say that we can’t do it without him.”
In clearing my plate moving forward for me are two things: there’s an ongoing converation about coming back to television. But if we do, we’ll do it in a very different way. There are some things that we can’t get away from. But, ultimately, the framework of the next program, should we do one, will be fun with cars, it will be very spirited, will be a tremendous amount of fun to watch, and we hope to do more interesting cars and more in depth builds. That’s what we’re looking at if we do more TV stuff.
Outside of the TV things, I’m looking to take on the F 100 market [in] the same way [as] the C 10s which are the Chevrolet half ton trucks for quite a few generations. I really think it’s going to do well. and if it does we’ll move back to maybe taking on some big, wild non F100 builds. That’s where we’re at and having some converstaions about maybe doing some TV.
Absolutely. There’s no ifs,
ands, or buts about it. We’re building cars that most sane, normal car shops wouldn’t attempt in less than six, nine months or possibly even a year. We’re building the cars in six weeks. If we run over our time budget, we’re building them in seven and eight weeks. I’m proud of most of the cars, there are a few of them I’m very proud of. We’ve done a few things on television that are firsts globally. And so we’ve really been able to pull a couple of wins out of the bag there.
But, yes, a hundred percent, building cars at that rate at that speed does take its toll. It takes its toll professionally, takes its toll emotionally and physically. . Professionally, we get to meet all these great people, we broaden our horizons and our contacts and networking. But the one thing is we don’t spend a lot of time to perfect any one type of car, any one style and sometimes we have to make concessions on a vehicle to even attempt to make a time frame. That can be a little grating.
I don’t even know what that means. I don’t know what the other additional pressures are. The one thing is it’s hard to go in and get out somewhere quickly. I don’t know that I’ve had any pressures of being a celebrity affect me in a negative way,
or cause me any trouble really.
