Aaron Kaufman’s journey from Richard Rawlings' Fast N' Loud and Gas Monkey Garage to his own company, Arclight Fab and show Shifting Gears has been quite a marvelous. He is a former mechanic on Fast N' Loud and his passion for cars has a long history.
Aaron Kaufman is All About Cars
He bought his first car, a 1984 Jeep Cherokee, by saving up his allowance and income from odd jobs. The car was also the very first vehicle that he customized and would be the breakthrough for his career as a mechanic. After getting his jeep running, Aaron was motivated to fix up his friends’ cars.
In an interview with Motor Trend, he said,
..I would do anything anyone wanted to do for free just to gain the experience because I didn’t know anyone else that did it, and if I did, I was the only one that I knew how to do it.- Aaron Kaufman
The experience Aaron gained as a teenager paved the way for his successful career. He understood that knowledge comes at a price and dedicated himself to the art throughout his teenage years. He went on to sell the Jeep Cherokee and bought himself a used truck after his high school graduation. To continue his passion, Aaron fixed up cars on the side even after high school. Clearly, he’s not in it for the money.
...I absolutely adore what I do….If one of my friends wants to do something and it’s really beyond what they’re capable of paying, I still want to do it. I get around to it when I get around to it, but at the same time I enjoy doing it, sometimes for the challenge and sometimes because I just want to do it.- Aaron Kaufman
