Aaron Kaufman VS Richard Rawlings
So what happened between Aaron Kaufman and Richard Rawlings? D Magazine went to the bottom of this last year. Aaron told them that they didn’t have “unfriendly rapport,” except now they don’t have any sort of rapport at all. He simply explained that he sees “the world very much differently,” especially with relationships. He simply explained that they “interact with humans differently.”
Richard’s point of view is that Aaron was just an “employee.” He contends that Aaron wanted to do things his way, but “Discovery wouldn’t let him.” He then went on to say that since Aaron left, Gas Monkey Garage is “building better cars than we’ve built before.” Ouch. That sounds like a bit of a dig on Aaron.
But Fast N’ Loud fans may wonder if Discovery had issues with him, why is Aaron still doing shows with them and why is it that Richard and Aaron no longer working together? According to Discovery executive producer Craig Coffman, Aaron wanted to strike out on his own. “Aaron was a partner with Richard. And it’s like anybody else. After a certain number of years, you just want to go out on your own and try something. I think that’s really, at the core of it, what Aaron wanted, to just do something on his own.” Coffman called Aaron and Richard business partners, contradicting Richard’s quote.
Is Fast N’ Loud Canceled?
What about Aaron’s old show, Fast N’ Loud? It has been 14 months since the last episode of Fast N’ Loud Season 14 aired on Discovery. Has Fast N’ Loud been canceled?
Not even close. Season 15 is starting on July 8. Richard is also traveling around the country, fixing up cars and having some fun. In the first episode of Season 15, Richard is in the Bay Area. The project is a 1968 Fastback Mustang that Chad McQueen, son of that late actor Steve McQueen, wants fixed up like the car in the classic McQueen movie Bullit. After the stellar rebuilt, they get to reenact the classic car chase scene.
