Richard Rawlings Net Worth and Work
Richard was born in Fort Worth, Texas and he had a huge interest in cars since childhood. An unbelievable fact is that he started buying his own cars at the age of 14.
When he was a child, he also started to build cars and going to several popular car shows around the country with his father.
In his life and even before turning 21 he has worked as a firefighter, paramedic and a police officer.
That’s a pretty impressive thing to do by the age of 21 in my opinion. I must say he was raised well by his father.
Afterwards, he owned and operated his own advertising and printing company. But he wanted to do more than just printing cars. He wanted to modify them and build them.
So he sold his printing firm to launch Gas Monkey Garage. Under this name and company, he produced and shipped a lot of cars for his amazing clients all over the globe.
His work in the garage led him to have a show on Discovery channel named, Fast N’ Loud. The show started airing in June month of the 2012 year.
Overall Richard Rawlings the American guy became a car builder, cross country racer and a television personality.
Along with the Garage, he also started Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill at two locations. One in Northwest Dallas and second at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport opened in March 2014.
Apart from this, his new restaurant has supposedly opened at Foxwood Resort and Casino in last year (2017).
With all these qualities and his work, his estimated net worth is around $15 million to this date.
