Default Fast 'n' Loud

Has anyone seen it? Is it decent or more OCC/American Hot Rod crap?

Eh, it's more of the latter. They don't ever show any work being done but focus on the hunt and the sale, very much like american pickers for cars.

I hate all these manufactured drama shows, especially with these abrasive aholes, the fat prick from atlanta in particular. Richard seems to be a decent cat, and a lot of fun. He also has a hell of a backstory. Read The Driver by Alex Roy for more. I've been enjoying it, esp the Chinese upholstery lady... Awesome.

Another Cheesy attempt at a car show. I got suckered in to watching the first one by the promo.

I thought they'd actually do some work on these cars. He's a flipper. All about turning around the car in the shortest period of time and making the most money for it. Without doing much of anything to fix the car. :/

I do like to see the old cars on the road again though.

It has its share of manufactured drama. If you hate the other shows you'll hate this one too. If you enjoy some of the others it pretty decent and entertaining.

I like how the producers say Dallas but make it look like she shop is in an isolated area. That couldn't be farther from the truth. They are located in an industrial area near I35 & 635.

Saw one show, doing a Riviera and one other (don't remember)
- Bunch of hacks.

All it is is a show about a couple of guys who try to 'flip' cheap cars- slap a quick repair or paint on it, then see if they can find a fool to buy it. IMO, the buyer on the show i watched was a shill just to make the seller look good.

I'm going to pass on the show unless I'm tied to a chair with the TV on.

Agree with what was posted above. The show is not worth watching a second time. The cheapest fastest way to sell a car. Its not about restoring them. Its a hack job.

The only decent part is the oriental lady.

Yes. It screams, "made for TV".

Still watching it though.

Yup.. & the story on the Ferrari boards is that they paid $80K for that wreck, not $400K.
It's basically the US version of WheelerStealers.

Newest? That was the mid season finale. Quite a while ago.
