From the Editor…
“TV shows seem to be a recurring theme in my recent editorials…”
I’m sure you’ll have noticed that our cover star this month is the star of the hit TV show Fast N’ Loud. Built by Gas Monkey Garage, the episode including this car has just recently aired in the USA, and is the current episode on the Discovery channel (UK) as this issue goes to print.
If, like all of the team here at Ultra VW, you’re a fan of the show, you’ll be sad to learn that’s It’s also one of the last episodes to include lead mechanic, Aaron Kaufman who has been part of the show (and Richard Rawlings‘ right-hand man) since the very beginning. It’s an amicable split, I should add, as Aaron is simply taking time out to pursue some personal projects and to slow down his pace of life (there’s a video explaining all on the Fast N’ Loud website).
Of course, ‘the show must go on’, and whilst we’ll all miss Aaron’s input and eye for a good project, I’m 100% sure the Monkeys will continue to entertain us, and the show will continue to be the most popular automotive reality TV show ever.
So, have a read of the feature, then check out the Discovery channel to watch the episode all about the little VW – I’m sure you’re gonna enjoy it!
