Richard Rawlings Stars in New Discovery Show ‘Garage Rehab’

(Discovery Channel)

Audio clip:

Richard Rawlings, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, followed in his dad's footsteps and developed a passion for cars from an early age, building cars and attending car shows with him. The earliest photograph of Richard, aside from his infant years, is of him sitting in a Volkswagen Beetle pedal car. His dad worked two and three jobs at a time so he could afford to have his one toy -- a car or motorcycle he could call his own. Richard bought his first car when he was 14 years old: a green '74 Mercury Comet. By the time he hit his senior year in high school, he was already on his third car, a '77 Bandit Trans Am. Richard says he has always worked just so he could have cars. He even took a bullet in the early '90s as he fought off a carjacker who was trying to steal his '65 Mustang 2+2 Fastback.

Rawlings is now starring in Discovery Channel's 'Garage Rehab' in which he goes into garages around the country that are under-performing and revamps them to their full potential.

FOX's Michelle Pollino spends "A Few Moments With..." Rawlings to discuss the new show and how he got involved with motorcycles.
