The Rogue Tesla Mechanic Resurrecting Salvaged Cars

Опубликовано: 27 июл. 2018 г. 4 202 838 просмотров

Rich is a car enthusiast whose passion is to find wrecked Teslas, bring them back to life, and then share his repair adventures on his YouTube channel Rich Rebuilds.

When he found out that Tesla would not service or support his salvaged cars, he took it upon himself to scour the internet and harvest working parts from several busted Teslas. He Frankensteined them together until his creations were fully operational, at a fraction of what it would cost to buy a new or certified pre-owned Tesla.

Motherboard travels to Massachusetts to meet with the rogue mechanic leading a grassroots movement of DIY fixers who are taking back the right to repair the things they own.

    Em Em 9 месяцев назад You haven't met my imaginary dad. He is Rich Rebuild + Steve Urkel all-in-one. and then I grew up..... now i'm in a mental institute they say I share too much information and it makes people uncomfortable..... How was I supposed to know that Melting cheese on the hood of a Tesla while making sex jokes is inappropriate. Especially when you tell them that i got the car out of sewage water and I shaped the cheese into elon musks face.... Oh well, long story short I had an amazing positive imaginary dad

    chuck thomas 9 месяцев назад He is essentially trying to make "chicken salad out of chicken shit" and winning on levels. I say stay positive. Which might be humorous on it's own level for being said on as post about electric cars.
