(Los Angeles) – Richard Rawlings has built an empire as the owner of Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas, TX, and last year he set out on a new venture – investing in the transformation of struggling garages across America. Joined by project manager Russell J. Holmes and auto shop consultant Chris Stephens, Richard travels the country to find more shops in need of restoration in an all-new season of Discovery Channel’s hit motor series, GARAGE REHAB, premiering Tuesday, January 8 at 8PM ET/PT. New episodes will continue to air Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT.
In each episode, Richard selects a garage and invests his time, money and contacts into the shop, making all business decisions as he works to overhaul the company from top to bottom. Using his entrepreneurial acumen, extensive knowledge of the auto industry and versatile marketing skills, he sets out to restore the struggling garage into a profitable business. From a failing hot rod shop with a distracted owner to a filthy run-down garage full of damaged equipment, Richard, Russell and Chris race against the clock each week to turn these shops around.
This season, in addition to working the biggest build in GARAGE REHAB history (a 20,000 square foot collision repair shop), Richard and his expert team take on their most important rehab yet – a veteran-run garage that teaches automotive repair skills to men and women transitioning out of military service. Richard is thrilled and gratified to be part of such a special project and works with Russell and Chris to ensure the garage and its owners are set up for tremendous success.

What do you think? Have you seen Garage Rehab? Will you watch the new season?
The show is horrible. I like Gas Monkey Garage, and even the arrogant Richard Rawlings. However, Russell on rehab ruins the show. He is a condescending bully who is unprofessional, with a smart mouth. Who would actually put up with a guy like this? Richard can do better.
I loved this show! I think You guys should get together with Harley Davidson and Big Wheel and make toy Harley’s. Plastic wheels that thump optional (after the emergency brake fish-tails)
I enjoy this show but I am always amazed by Russel and his skill on a forklift. It is very clear that he had never had proper training and as a person who trains forklift operators. I would fail him in a heartbeat. Maybe he should wear a pare of safety glasses once in a while as well.
I think in most cases it a good show. Better than most of the junk on the TV. Richard is just the bucks and backer, the other guys are the real skill. They just did one where the guy was doing golf carts. I’d like to know what they did for the lifts and tire machines. I kind of got so names, at all. Would be nice if that stuff was listed somewhere. Thanks, Motor Head Mic
This is probably the worst program on Discovery. This guy Richard (the Punk Monkey) Rawlins from the gas monkey garage just kills it. He is a self centered, egotistical, narcissistic (look that up if you don’t know what it means) punk …
66 year old man, into rebuilding and repairing vehicles needs dire help in completing his garage. I have a dirt, some gravel floor covered by boards and wood heat. I built a carport for extra space but cant enclose the walls, nor finish my garage. I am still working in the old garage and on gravel outside in the elements. I would appreciate your help in achieving my dream and lively hood. Thanks, Bill
