Publisher's Summary

The breakout star of Discovery's hit automotive restoration show Fast N' Loud takes listeners on an entertaining ride through his wild life and behind the scenes of his hit show in this memoir and automotive handbook, revving with outrageous details and jaw-dropping stories and injected with the quick-witted, foul-mouthed charm viewers love.

"If we're gonna have fun, it better have a motor!"

In Fast N' Loud, Richard Rawlings pushes into high gear, sharing the story of his rise to success, his show, and the automotive know-how that has made him famous. He begins with his own story - how he went from flat broke to a seat at the table with some of history's most iconic car guys. His road to the top is full of dangerous twists and hilarious turns, with a few precipitous cliffs in between, including getting shot defending his beloved 1965 Mustang fastback from carjackers, blowing out of town Fear-and-Loathing style, and picking up chicks and vagrants along the way.

Rawlings then takes listeners behind the scenes of Fast N' Loud the series, sharing details on everything from the toughest car to restore to the easiest, his favorite restorations, travel and war anecdotes, and the best and worst cars to make it to the small screen. He finishes with a handy guide for classic and antique car enthusiasts that includes insider tricks of the trade. Want to know how to find a Model-T in mint condition? Need a carburetor for your '73 Ford Mustang? Want to meet other '60s Porsche owners? The answers are all here.

    "Need More"

    Just like the show I want more. I think it would have been "cooler" if Richard actually narrated the entire audio book since it is his story but Alexander did a good job. I will be listening to this again and the information in the book applies to more than just car sales.

    "Get You Some Of That"

    Being a fan of Fast and Loud I was not to sure what to expect, was it judt going to be about Richard's exploits at the garage? It was way more than that, an amazing story about his life and love for money that drove him on, I did not want it to end. Listen right to the end, there is a cool ending.

    Story
    "More honest than your average used car dealer"
    Where does Fast N' Loud: Blood, Sweat and Beers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen to a lot of audio books, but very few biography's as there's far too many. It tends to be the standard now to write a biography as soon as you've had any fame and most of these books are like their subjects dull and boring, but this is neither dull nor boring and amongst the best I've read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty. Most "celebrities" these days wouldn't dare to tell it as it is, but Richard appears to have done just that. I know it's been edited and there's clearly some artistic licence, but hell some people aren't this honest with their friends.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There isn't one scene I can put above the others, but the Wacky Wednesday nights struck a cord with me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The love and respect Richard shows for his father throughout the whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    Some people may look a Richard and just see a show off or chancer, but read the book and see him for what he is, an inspiration.
