Richard Rawlings / Gas Monkey Garage on Spike TV this morning

I was watching Muscle Car on Spike TV this morning (Lou Santiago is the host) and they had a segment on Richard Rawlings & Gas Monkey Garage. A very familiar hot rod to those who followed the Discovery debacle was also featured.

The spike tv website lists that episode ( calling it "61 impala/rawlings"), as being aired this morning at 9am. My satellite tv guide shows it airing at 930 am PST.


Is that the same episode?

From the ad on spike tv it looks like one more make believe show hosted by a spun out thug and featuring make believe "builders"


The "related" photos are a bunck of chicks. Not bad looking girls, but how are they "related" to a show that is supposed to be about musclecars?





Later, mikey

Heads up on yankeerodder everyone -- looks like he's here to spin the GMG fiasco. I'm researching his IP address info right now, and there are already some interesting details.

Regarding Rawlings and SpikeTV -- his relationship with them was mostly through The Bullrun, for whom he was a "spokesman". The Bullrun TV show ditched Rawlings at the last minute, and went with another choice for a host: "professional" wrestler Bill Goldberg (Google around for more details).

No idea why the show is being aired. It was already-filmed, and they're probably just filling the slot, thinking we wouldn't catch it.

FWIW, yesterday was the 1-year Spank-iversary of the original GMG campaign. I sent out a notification to SEMA members, and that's probably what's spurring this round of spin.

gee thanks

sorry I am new to this site.
I was merely expressing an opinion. Like Jon, I have an interest in politics. I guess I've got alot to learn.
not too sure why everyone is so obsessed regarding location. I am working out of temp shop (no web) I use Kinkos mostly to check my messages (struggling shop owner) to get online - but I can assure you I am in Rhode Island.

I figured I'd find a post about this episode on Spike. I just saw this show today on my dvr, didn't realize it was an old rerun. Why would Muscle Car give so much time to feature this lame shop? It was really one of the worst segments I've ever seen. And why would anyone put those guys on tv a year after the debacle on hotrodders.com? Surely Spike TV knows about the thong picture and the mess those guys created. I was just shocked to see Richard Rawlings on Muscle Car like he was a legitimate builder or something. Whatever, just had to vent.
