Alan Kaufman was born on 26th January 1982 in Texas, United States of America. He is a prominent television figure that carries the all-American personality with pride. He is a self-taught mechanic who grew up taking things apart and joining others together.

Kaufman is a member of Gas Monkey Garage Team, the prodigy team of mechanics that scour Texas for forgotten cars and abandoned classics to restore them in their Dallas headquarters. The “FAST N’ LOUD” show features motor mastermind Richard Rawlings alongside Kaufman trying to turn their sweat and beer nights into money.

Alan Kaufman shows many of the cars they restore via his Instagram account, @thearclight, where he has over 555k followers; the Gas Monkey Garage continually updates its efforts via @GasMonkeyGarage on Twitter and the 2.4m followers Instagram account.

Career experience

Kaufman is considered a mechanical prodigy with a high aptitude for mechanics. He never attended a university, but he has become a well-known and passionate vehicle restorer with a full-throttle attitude.

Aaron was working on small car shop in Dallas when he met Richard. The older mechanic arrived at the store and ask for their top guy to air ride his 1953 Ford Mainline. Aaron took the job and quickly impressed his future colleague. Richard opened the Gas Monkey Garage on 2002. He remembered Aaron and the pride the young mechanic took on his work, so he called him to work in his workshop.

On 2012, the Gas Monkey Garage debuted as the main scenario of the Discovery Channel’s car restoration show, where Aaron demonstrated his surprisingly simple strategy: a restored car has to be cohesive from the back to the interior and the front end. There are no extra pieces.

Fast N’ Loud

Fast N’ Loud is a reality by the Discovery Channel featuring Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman as they scourge derelict cars and restore them alongside the Gas Monkey Garage crew. They always work under a tight work schedule, and after they finish restoring the cars they have to auction the vehicle.

The most successful season of the show was the first one, and it has become one of the favorite shows of American men. In fact, a 2016 survey by the New York Times found that Fast N’ Loud is the most favorite show by men.

Personal life

Aron Kaufman is not married. His loud personality and talents have left little room for romance. He was once in love with Lindsay J., a Dallas girl. They started the relationship early 2009 and were together for about 3 and a half years. However, they parted ways in 2012 and she never became her wife.

There is not much more information about his private life on the media. There are rumors about his sexuality and gossip pointing that Aaron is gay. He doesn’t have a family, he has never been married, and he is apparently single as of now, something that is weird for a talented, rich and handsome young man with a net worth of $3 million.
