Garage Monkey Garage has had some pretty epic moments over the course of Fast N’ Loud. But, to kick off the 15th Fast N’ Loud season, the Dallas, Texas-based shop really turned things up a notch when they helped recreate the classic car chase scene from the 1968 Steve McQueen movie Bullitt.
In the season premiere of the Discovery Channel TV show, Richard Rawlings, Aaron Kaufman, and the Monkeys hooked up with Chad McQueen — Steve McQueen’s son and an accomplished racer in his own right. McQueen asked the team to take a 1968 Fastback Mustang and turn into the legendary Bullitt Mustang.
Doing what they do best, the Gas Monkey crew worked its magic on the ’68 Mustang and got it into iconic muscle car condition. Then, as you can see in the above video, Chad McQueen did what he does best and whipped the ‘Stang around for some incredible Bullitt-inspired driving. What an awesome homage to one of the best car chases in Hollywood history!
That first episode — called “Bullitt In The Chamber” — perfectly sets the stage for the other 11 episodes in Fast N’ Loud‘s second-most recent season. In “Scout’s Honor,” for example, they work on a 1979 Scout with a 707-horsepower engine, while in “Beyond Reasonable Scout,” they drop a Hellcat motor in a ‘79 International Scout and earn a world record in the process.
In “”Brady Car,” they work with Barry Williams of Brady Bunch fame to build the show’s iconic station wagon. How awesome is that?! Before that, in “Chop Shop Truck,” Richard turns Brian Bass’ antique Ford into an awesome shop truck, and in “No Second Chances,” the season’s finale, the crew attempts to finish the ’72 Buick Riviera super-build in time for SEMA.
Needless to say, if you haven’t been keeping up with what Gas Monkey Garage has been up to on Fast N’ Loud, you need to start binging ASAP!
