In the 2-hour season premiere, the crew attempts to recreate the iconic chase scene from the movie Bullitt, where Steve McQueen's '69 Mustang Fastback rips through the streets of San Francisco, with Chad McQueen himself joining the team to recreate the epic scene. In addition, a familiar face will be joining the Gas Monkey team this season, Russell J. Holmes from Discovery's GARAGE REHAB is the company's newest 'fixer' and oversees keeping the builds on time and on budget.
Motor mastermind Richard Rawlings and mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufmann search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, Texas. While 'in Rome', they'll sometimes get in with the local customs and characters - the all American, full throttle road trip with attitude. Ultimately, Richard and Aaron will work days and nights to finish their cars to make auction. But will their blood, sweat and beers translate into cold hard cash?
As far back as the 1950s, America has been a virtual graveyard of classic cars. Across the country, vintage vehicles can be found rusting in overgrown fields, abandoned back lots, and musty garages. From '57 Chevys to '73 Trans Ams, these machines are screaming to be brought back to life. To most they're just rust buckets, but to Rawlings and his crew they're a goldmine waiting to be excavated. In fact, that's their specialty: they turn rust into gold.
