Hi Everyone,

Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage is giving away a hot rod. We need your help in 2 ways.

1. We need a worthy charity that we can raise money for. We aim to sell T-Shirts in order for people to go into the draw. We want to give the profits to a good charity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

2. We are going to be documenting the build out and posting the film on you tube - The first video is posted. What would you like to see in the build out - specifically???

Check out the video here:
Gas Monkey Garage Hot Rod video

I am adding a couple of pictures of the 31 etc.


:evil:

Jon,

Thanks for your post. The intention of the post was certainly not to offend. The picture will be removed immediately.

The goal of my post was to go to the people directly who may have the best input into creating a show and obtain feedback. We absolutley want to make a show about the building of a hot rod but, as you know, there are many shows on the networks (not particularly hot rod specific) out there that are very similar and a little bland. We want to do something different. ( By the way I am not with Gas Monkey Garage - I am with the production company. There are many places to post information or links to the video on the internet but I thought this forum would be good because you guys build hot rods and would know what you like to see - as opposed to the usual stuff out there.

With regards to the charity - there are some charites that have more of a car/bike focus. There is one that was at Sturgis called "kids and chrome" - a possibility. It would be possible to link up with a general charity. However, I was looking to see if anyone had any information about charities that have been involved in car giveaways/hotrod giveaways in the past - a little more specific I guess.

My intention was to be clear in my post that I was behind the video and was asking for help as opposed to just advertising the video. I am sorry that it was seen as a marketing ploy.

If I have caused any other offense I apologize unreservedly.

If anyone has any feedback on a charity or what people would like to see in a show I would greatefully appreciate it.

Jon - I would be happy to chat with you on the phone at anytime so that you can hopefully understand my intentions were genuine and not intended to offend.

I am suprised I thought people liked the burn outs etc and a bit of attitude. I was down it at a hot rod festival in Austin a few months ago and there were probably over 1000 people lining the streets with all sorts of cars (hot rods) - not many "rat rods" doing burn outs etc etc in front of the police.

Do people have a thing against Rat Rods or Gas Monkey, or just Richards attitude in the pod cast? - as for language - the podcast is pretty clean - maybe a couple of swear words maximum....

I know Gas Monkey have built many other cars that are not considered Rat Rods.

Just to clarify: Gas Monkey did not post anything on this site. The production company did. They did not ask me to do so or know I was going to.

Please feel free to rail on the production company. :spank:

My original intent was to get feedback on the video not self promotion. Unfortunately it became a rant against rat rods, Richard and or Gas Monkey Garage.

I understand that you may not like the content of the video. I acknowledge your position and your opinion.

I do believe Gas Monkey build quality Hot Rods and Richard and Aaron are quality individuals. I think the many people who have met them or have seen their cars can attest to that. Thanks to those of you who have PM'd me to say so.

willowbilly3 - there were two cars built like the one in the video - one for The Bullrun in 2005 which was sold. A similar one was built for David Coker after he was told The Bullrun car was sold.

I am a car lover not an expert however both cars had some amazing details.
