A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Fast N' Loud features sometimes-crass mechanics buying and restoring classic cars to sell for a profit. It's a promotional vehicle for Gas Monkey Garage, and the focus is as much on making profitable deals as on the rebuilds. The show contains lots of rough language ("s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped).
The new knight Rider theme is so redicolous. Went from one thing that was interesting to this crap smh!!!

What's the Story?
FAST N' LOUD is a reality series about a car-savvy duo in Dallas who rebuild classic cars to sell for a profit. Hot-rod expert Richard Rawlings and master mechanic Aaron Kaufman travel around to look for forgotten or abandoned cars they might restore to their original glories. Kaufman works with a team to restore each car in a way that maintains its integrity while increasing its value. He and Rawlings also share some of the history behind each car, and, when they're done, they sell it to a collector for a profit -- but not before taking a ride in it themselves.
Is It Any Good?
For teens interested in cars, this show offers a lighthearted look at the process by which restorers choose cars. It also shares some of the details that add or detract from a car's value and highlights restoration techniques.
The way Rawlings goes about making his deals might seem unconventional, especially when he hands over plastic bags full of tens of thousands of dollars of cash. But viewers may be intrigued by some of the histories of and details about the cars.
