you’re in dallas make sure you come by here because that’s pretty crazy you’re gonna get to pick between i don’t even know how many cars are over there but any car you want now let’s get on down outside and start talking about the pos row because there’s pos out here so out here on the pos i have got tons and tons of stuff going on and one of the things that i do you see them around the shop here like that big one there is i’m a big fan of classic signs and i’ve got probably 20 or 30 of them over here that i haven’t yet put up that is a 30 foot firestone double-sided porcelain and neon it is unbelievable i’m gonna get it put up one day we’ve got some old motel signs we’ve got some cadillac signs from a dealership in 1938. uh it’s just a constant thing decorating and throwing cool stuff up around here now i don’t have a lot of cars in inventory right now we’ve got our big international if you haven’t seen the video on that make sure you go to our youtube and check it out pretty freaking cool i’ve got some grandiose ideas for it i don’t know if i’m going to be able to pull it off but i’m going to try funny part about over here none of this is part of gas monkey except for that’s uh daphne’s car but the other ones don’t even belong to me people seem to think that they can oh i’ll just leave it over at richard’s place no big deal i’m charging them for storage watch now we got el wapo here i love el wapo and this is one of my favorite trucks we have in stock right now it’s sort of for sale but i’m going to tell you it would be pretty expensive like 35 000 bucks because it’s rust free it’s killer and it’s the right color it’s the color of money green that’s what i’m talking about so the school bus you guys might have seen this we had it up for sale for a while it’s actually sold it’s going to london england i believe and that’ll be out of here the dodge truck you’re gonna be seeing a video about it here in a little bit uh we’re filming this afternoon with that uh so it’s sold going well not too far i’ll tell you that in the video this little lovely piece of fordness or ore and uh it’s the only thing in stock right now besides el wapo and uh it’s for sale it’s cheap it’s on craigslist here in dallas probably a thousand bucks will get you this pretty cool body very very little rust this one is sold this is a service cab and service truck and we sold this to our friends at river city hot rods and they built some killer stuff usually have something really really wicked every sema so i’m pretty stoked about that and if you haven’t seen this video at my own uh embarrassment please go watch it this is probably a truck that’s going to be here for the rest of my life uh it seems as though i had one too many beers at the local watering hole and offered somebody 22 000 for this a100 and well i own it so uh if you want to pay 22 grand as a matter of fact you want to pay 20 i’ll sell it to you i’ll take a short loss on that one and uh that’s the pos row i’ve got to get out there and i need to buy some inventory so if you guys have some cars or trucks for sale hit me up at info gas monkey garage dot com we check it every day all day i’m looking for especially trucks i’m looking for hot rods i’m looking for low mileage originals i’m looking for porsches ferraris lamborghinis i need cars and i have money please send me some leads so like i said a lot of things going on out here at the shop and we got sir loin hung up if you hadn’t seen that video we went out to a swap meet and had a good time and i ended up picking up old sirloin there and uh hanging him on the wall i think he’s a pretty good addition for gas monkey since we uh are here in texas the greatest state in all of the states uh this is my car uh obviously it’s not for sale but the other one you can win and we’ve got a lot going on here i’m not sure what the what the covers are in there for to tell you the truth but uh let’s see if we can get a little uh sneak peek at what’s going on this is a project we’re going to be unveiling at sema and uh look at that we just got through uh building all our own control arms and what have you these are one-offs this is going to be a pretty wicked vehicle i’m pretty excited with the people that i’m working with on this one and we’re not going to talk a whole lot about it until sema and then you’re going to freak out because no one’s ever done one of these the way we’re doing it you saw the video where we pulled this out of the storage container it’s now going to london england it’s getting loaded up and going overseas there’s a lot of hot rodders over there hats off to you guys i’m going to be over there in september for the petro hedonism event so make sure you’re paying attention i will be over there all right so here’s one of my favorites you know me and dennis are pretty tight friends and uh between him and a few other guys we all know where all the cars are or most of them and uh i had a need for a black on black 67 or 68 mustang and i didn’t have one there wasn’t any on the line for sale on the old interwebs so i called dennis and he’s like hey i happen to have one and i’m like cool so we did a little negotiation and now it’s here this car is being built for a collaboration with a client slash product manufacturer in spain and it’s going to be going over there i’m really stoked arnett because uh we’re just going through the car front to back it’s going to be kind of stylized they got a lot a lot of rules in spain on customizing cars and what you can do what you can’t do with them so basically this is going to be a very stock car from front to back with a little bit of style spain’s got too many rules hopefully one day they’ll lift those rules but for right now we got to obey phipps is going through it rebuilding the rear end servicing it new brakes front and back all new bushings a-arms control arms all new brakes components just beefing it up getting it ready to go again we can’t really customize it the way i would want to but it’s going to be a bitching solid hot rod running around spain over there so look for it all my spaniards i don’t know what would a spain person be called spaniard okay i don’t know sir so uh the guys are working away uh the bus project i know you guys have been watching that and uh it’s really really coming along good and i hate to even curse myself but it’s ahead of schedule like a way long way ahead of schedule so yesterday we just got the new front springs in and we shifted the front end up about three inches on its own chassis that is the only modification we did to the actual chassis itself so the bus now sits on the brand new duramax 5500 chassis you saw us take a brand new truck we paid like 50 something thousand for ditched the body everything else and we’ve mounted the bus to it and then we use the original firewall uh from that brand new truck to replace the firewall in this old chevy bus so that all the driving components and the drive-by wire and the braking components everything could go in there original settings on the original firewall and that was important because we want this truck to be able to be serviced anywhere it goes at the local chevy dealership so i’m pretty stoked on it yeah sure phipps throw that hood up check this out guys oh the entire no over here i’m talking about here check this out the entire dash from the brand new truck is in there nice and complete it’ll be finished on both sides we’ve finished all the floor work and we finished putting in all of the originally spaced fuel modules and fuel tanks so this truck is 100 brand new duramax 5500 pretty stoked on it of course we got some big wheels coming from american force and if it ever has a problem they just pull into the chevy dealership and after the sales manager and the service manager have gone completely bananas they’ll realize what they’re dealing with and they’ll be able to service it fix it on up and get them on their way comes with a full warranty uh just like it does from chevrolet this is a project i’m pretty stoked about uh i think we put out a video the other day on the camera truck uh we’re still working on it i’m letting the millennials learn how to work on cars as you can tell like with everything millennials do it’s about halfway done it’s not finished you know how it goes and uh then back here you know the guys are making little parts when we’re in the building stage that we are on the bus this is what i call the doldrums it’s because it looks like a bus it drives like a bus it does what it’s supposed to and now it’s all the little bitty stuff and that’s pretty boring to watch so those guys are doing that stuff and uh chase is back there working on our super secret project that we have underneath the black tarp here more on that to come and uh this thing like i said is going to spain that’s going to london that’s staying here and we’re building that for kane’s chicken fingers so it’s going to be a pretty big bill for my friend todd so make sure you uh visit keynes uh and and keep them flush with cash because when he gets the bill for that it’s gonna hurt could say it’s gonna cost him a finger now let’s go see what’s going on in the monkey trap so we’re over here in monkey trap and i’m pretty kind of i’m kind of upset but i’m kind of elated because i like to keep my monkey trap clean and come over here and look at all my kick-ass cars and have some fun but now with my new commitment it’s full of boxes this is tons and tons of merch uh that’s lined
