Stock #: 75280z Exterior Color: Green Interior Color: Black Body Type: 2+2 Transmission: Manual Engine: SR20DETT Title Condition: Clear Vehicle Description 1975 Datsun 280 Z Street Tuner built by Gas Monkey Garage on the hit show Fast N’ Loud! Documented on a 2-part episode of Fast N’ Loud, we started with an exceptionally clean 13,000 mile, one owner car that had been stored in a garage in Arizona. With such a clean and straight car to start with it was immediately apparent that the end result would have to produce an equally clean product. And clean is what we have here, starting with... the body which was stripped in preparation for filling and contouring to remove the side marker lights as well as smoothing the rear roll pan after deleting the rear bumper. A custom front bumper was fitted along with lower spoiler and BRE rear wing. Body mods included the pocket style fender flares to cover 17” Rays Wheels shod with Nitto tires and period correct fender mount wing mirrors. Sprayed in the original factory green, custom one of a kind billet GMG emblems replaced the original Datsun units. Chassis mods include Full Billet Aluminum Front and Rear Z car Track Pack sub-frame and control arm setup with adjustable coil over struts and rack and pinion steering along with oversize Wilwood 4 wheel disc brake and Master cylinder. All required to handle the incredible boost in performance from the built S14 SR20DETT engine swap w/ Garrett GT3071 turbo feeding a Hypertune Billet intake manifold through a custom one off air box. Power transfers through a S14 5 speed transmission. The interior was customized with custom faced gauges, purpose built sport racing seats and the rear seat was covered in a matching upholstery to complete the race inspired transformation.

Photos About Gas Monkey Garage [zipedit]
“I’ve been obsessed with cars since… I was born.”
Richard Rawlings had a car by age fourteen, and had gone through nearly twenty cars by the time he was out of high school. His father worked three jobs his whole life—two to make ends meet for the family, and one to buy toys. Neither a mechanic nor a fabricator, his father took pride in his car collection. Needless to say, this stayed with Richard.
Rawlings was always working, and always chasing pipe dreams. By twenty-one, he’d been a cop, a fireman, and a medic. But he wanted more. After a rough stint of sleeping on his sister’s couch, he got his act together and entered the world of trading sales. Here he solidified his business savvy, and went on to build an advertising and printing firm from the ground up. The company grew to become a “juggernaut” in the Dallas area. A mere four years later, the company sold, and with that money Gas Monkey Garage was born.
Aaron Kaufman worked at a shop Rawlings frequented, and loved the stuff Rawlings brought in for him. Kaufman always went above and beyond for him. When Gas Monkey opened, Rawlings called him up and asked if he wanted to work for him. The premise was simple: Rawlings wanted the fastest, most expensive, most badass hot rod shop to be found, with apparel and a show on Discovery to boot. Kaufman thought he was crazy, but signed on anyway. Eight years later, the shop is all that and more.
They owe their success to a strict business model. They don’t buy parts—only whole models without too much rust. Owing to his business background, Rawlings has a handle on the market, and knows the price he ought to pay. In ninety days or less, the job will be done, whether they start with a decent model or a carcass. Then it’s onto the next job without hesitation. If a finished car sits too long, Rawlings will sell it at a loss. He’s interested in a killer operation, not a stockpile.
Their roles within the shop are clear. Rawlings is first and foremost an entrepreneur. He wants to sell a style, push a brand, and make sure Gas Monkey Garage never stops growing. Kaufman runs the shop, armed with his mastery of mechanics, electrics, and fabrication. The dynamic is vital, the common ground being their mutual love of classic cars. Rawlings has always been an old soul when it comes to cars, and his style has brought in a steady flow of clientele who trust his no-B.S. methods. “Anyone can go out and buy a Ferrari.” Rawlings’ dream car? “A 1932 Ford Roadster—the holy grail of hot rods.”
