You probably know who Aaron Kaufman is. He is the member of the Gas Monkey Garage team that is featured on the Discovery Channel series Fast N’ Loud.
He is Richard Rawlings’ other half. The Hutch to his Starsky. The McCartney to his Lennon. The Sundance Kid to his Butch Cassidy.
He is funny, sarcastic, knowledgeable, and, above all, the guy really loves cars. He is the guy who puts the “wheel” in Rawlings’ wheeler-dealer mystique, with his ability to transform a pile of rusting scrap metal into a shiny, sweet ride. When tackling a car restoration project, Aaron’s strategy is surprisingly simple: it has to be completely cohesive, from the front end to the back end to the interior. Every piece has to make sense. And as a project evolves, so does his vision.
His high aptitude for mechanics and passion for cars led him to the hot rod world. But he didn’t want to just be good at what he did. He wanted to be the best at it. And that passion is what has driven him to succeed.
