Aaron Kaufmann from "Fast and Loud" is one of the hosts of the Discovery Channel reality series.

Originally from Crowley, Texas, mechanical prodigy Aaron Kaufmann is a car restoration visionary. A naturally talented mechanic determined to make things his own way, it was easy for him to fall into hot rod work — and his sharp skills and eye for design landed him a job at Gas Monkey Garage. He is an entirely self-taught mechanic, fabricator and all-around hot rodder. He grew up taking things apart

and putting them back together – he just didn't put them back together the same way they came apart. His high aptitude for mechanics and passion for cars led him to the hot rod world. But he didn't want to just be good at what he did. He wanted to be the best at it. And that passion is what has driven him to succeed.

Richard Rawlings met Aaron when Aaron was working at a local car shop. Richard went in and said he needed someone to air ride his '53 Ford Mainline and asked for their top guy to do it. They gave it to Aaron. Years later, when Richard opened Gas Monkey Garage, he remembered Aaron and the pride he took in his work. Richard found Aaron and asked him to join him in his next venture.

When tackling a car restoration project, Aaron's strategy is surprisingly simple: it has to be completely cohesive, from the front end to the back end to the interior. Every piece has to make sense. And as a project evolves, so does his vision.

As for his favorite car of all time, while a '32 roadster ranks as one of his top picks, his all-time favorite is an AC Cobra. "They're a driver's car and it's just an absolute beast."
