Gas Monkey Garage
The fun loving folks at Gas Monkey Garage are connected to three cars selling at the Barrett-Jackson Auction this week. Funny how things can quickly change. Last year a car, previously featured on Gas Monkey’s “Fast N’ Loud” TV reality show, sold with little fanfare or publicity.
Since then, Richard Rawlings sold a COPO Camaro at the Reno auction. And he is now selling a CRC Camaro ready for the dragstrip.
Now the 1991 Ferrari F-40 that arrived at Gas Monkey Garage as a wreck; was fixed on the TV show and sold to Dennis Collins, his business partner, is a featured car on Saturday night in Barrett-Jackson’s Salon Collection.
The folks at Gas Monkey Garage knew their limitations and imported some hired guns to help out on the frame and body work. The Ferrari has less than 7,200 miles and is no longer a stocker. The car was repainted black, rather than keeping it the original red. The turbos are changed out (or enhanced), new shocks added and new seats were added, along with custom 18″ wheels in satin black. The original aluminum V8 engine is intact with 2.9 liters displacement.
Given the rising fame of Richard Rawlings and Gas Monkey Garage it’ll be interesting to see what this thirteen year old car fetches. Will the purists despise the mods or will a buyer want the car featured on Fast N’ Loud.
