Publisher's Summary

The breakout star of Discovery's hit automotive restoration show Fast N' Loud takes listeners on an entertaining ride through his wild life and behind the scenes of his hit show in this memoir and automotive handbook, revving with outrageous details and jaw-dropping stories, and injected with the quick-witted, foul-mouthed charm viewers love.
"If we're gonna have fun, it better have a motor!"
In Fast N' Loud, Richard Rawlings pushes into high gear, sharing the story of his rise to success, his show, and the automotive know-how that has made him famous. He begins with his own story - how he went from flat broke to a seat at the table with some of history's most iconic car guys. His road to the top is full of dangerous twists and hilarious turns, with a few precipitous cliffs in between, including getting shot defending his beloved 1965 Mustang fastback from carjackers, blowing out of town Fear-and-Loathing style, and picking up chicks and vagrants along the way.
Rawlings then takes listeners behind the scenes of Fast N' Loud, the series, sharing details on everything from the toughest car to restore to the easiest, his favorite restorations, travel and war anecdotes, and the best and worst cars to make it to the small screen. He finishes with a handy guide for classic and antique car enthusiasts that includes insider tricks of the trade. Want to know how to find a Model-T in mint condition? Need a carburetor for your '73 Ford Mustang? Want to meet other '60s Porsche owners? The answers are all here.

It does quite know what to be...

The book starts as a biography, but jumps through this quickly into describing episodes of TV, the characters and how to buy cars! This is a real shame because though I enjoy the show and would have preferred an actual biography.

Whooo Fast N' Loud

Is there anything you would change about this book?


What other book might you compare Fast N' Loud: Blood, Sweat and Beers to, and why?


What didn’t you like about Richard Rawlings and Alexander Cendese ’s performance?

The only problem I found is that when it said narrated by Richard Rawlings, I thought it would be more than the intro. If Richard had read this book, I feel that after watching the show Fast n' Loud you'd have really got into the story more.

If this book were a film would you go see it?
