Richard and Aaron set an ambitious deadline of just six weeks to turn an old ’49 Chevy pickup into a show-quality truck in time to debut at the big Lone Star Throwdown.
Richard and Aaron’s goal of turning an old ’49 Chevy pickup into a show-quality truck comes down to the wire as they race to finish it in time to debut at the Lone Star Throwdown.
Looking to make a smash debut at an all-new Barrett-Jackson auction in eight weeks, Richard buys into Aaron’s plan to build a first-ever ’72 Pantera fitted with a custom turbo-charged Ford EcoBoost V6 engine.
A last minute problem arises with the turbo-charged EcoBoost '72 Ford Pantera Aaron is building for the new Barrett-Jackson Northeast, which in turn, forces Richard to gamble by bringing his quarter-million dollar 2005 Ford GT to the auction instead.
With Aaron headed off again to Pike’s Peak, he tasks the Monkeys with building a ’55 Chevy that Richard plans to sell with around a million dollars worth of other cars at a Barrett-Jackson auction on the east coast in less than two weeks.
Richard buys Aaron a 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA '45 with the aim of rebuilding the bike appropriate to its original era in order to participate in a vintage race on the New Jersey shore in just two weeks.
After a number of tough builds, Richard decides to do something nice for Aaron and the Monkeys and buys them a ’67 Camaro mounted on a K5 chassis hoping it will lift their spirits.
Banking on a speedy build because of all the aftermarket parts available for G-body cars, Aaron bets Richard he can finish a 1980 El Camino in three weeks instead of four.
After Aaron bets Richard that the Monkeys would be able to finish building a 1980 El Camino one week ahead of schedule, last-minute problems threaten to push them past their deadline.
As Richard gets ready to gamble selling a million dollars worth of cars at Barrett-Jackson, last-minute problems with their ’55 Chevy threaten to keep him from taking it to auction.
With Aaron set to take off soon for a long-deserved vacation, he and Richard get the Monkeys started on giving the "proper" treatment to a '65 Volkswagen Beetle.
With Aaron off on vacation, Richard tasks the Monkeys with giving the Gas Monkey treatment to the first car he ever owned back in high school, a vomit green '74 Mercury Comet.
Aaron quits Gas Monkey just as Richard agrees to a drag strip showdown with Big Chief of Street Outlaws, leaving the Monkeys to build a race car on their own at the same time he's challenged to his own race against another set of Outlaws.
With race day against the Street Outlaws fast approaching, Aaron struggles to get his BMW ready on his own while Richard faces potential disaster when the Challenger crashes on its final test run.
