Anybody else watching the rebuild of the Ferrari F 40 on the TV show Fast and Loud ??

They purchased a totally wrecked exotic for $400,000 and hope to flip it for over a million dollars.

Well the guy is flipping out now that he is in over $200,000 in labor and parts and the car isn't even done !

WTF was he thinking ?? How could he not expect it to cost as much ??? LMAO !

It is a freaking rare exotic car,...a ferrari !!  The frame was totally screwed and the body destroyed.

I am not saying he won't make a profit, but to not expect the cost is kinda,...well dumb.  confused?

I am watching the rebuild.  Many of the cars on Fast & Loud as well as Counting Cars are done as cheaply as possible with extremely short time frame rebuilds if any rebuilding is done.  Most of their rebuilds are ones I wouldn't buy.  The Ferrari rebuild, he is in over his head and having someone else doing the reconstruction.  The last blurb I saw was when installing the windshield, it broke and that glass was $7000.  OMG/Shocked

Keep in mind, it's ALL drama.   :confused: 
I am watching it too, but this one's kinda over board.

You want to get top dollar for a Ferrari...
So let's take a wrecked one that should have been totaled out...
Try to rebuild it on the cheap...
Modify the engine...
Customize the interior...
Paint it black...

 confused?
I would think anybody willing to spend a million on an F40 would want for it to be as close to original as possible.

I wouldn't be surprised if the original owner, took his insurance check and was just having Gas Monkey rebuild it for him. Yeah that's right. I suspect that the entire premise of this build may be a fabrication in itself.

It did look okay. However, if he had 3 people wanting to give 900,000 why did he let his buddy have it for 800,000? Oh wait, I just answered my own question... 900 would be 200 profit... His buddy's share would have been 100 too.
Thus he actually paid Gas Monkey 400,000 to fix the 400,000 wreck that he had bought.

I watched the finale build.  It looked like a PITA to get into or out of. Aaron and Richard both got $50K for their work and the "new" owner picked up the ~$300K Richard spent in parts.

Lol trust me Aaron was not getting to keep the cash !  Did you see how fast Richard snatched it up and Aaron gave it up. hehehe

The car ended up looking pretty bad a** in the end,..better than i thought it would.
