It would seem business is booming for the boys at Rust Bros.
Rasta Blasta and his crew are pretty much living the dream out there, huh.
Of course, the work that Mike, Avery and Connor do out there is anything but easy, but fans would be lying if they said they wouldn’t want to give it a shot and shadow them for a week or two.
Everyone’s new Netflix obsession – Rust Valley Restorers – landed on the streaming platform in August and gearheads were quick to pounce on the show, racing through it in mere nights. However, perhaps what was more surprising at first was just how many people who weren’t necessarily into cars were championing it.
Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, there’s genuinely so much to enjoy here, to the point that they’ve had to address the surge in interest on their website.
The wonderful world of Rust Valley Restorers
If you haven’t already, it’s definitely worth heading over to the Rust Bros’ official website.
On the main page, we’re immediately struck with information in the wake of the series’ success: “Due to the overwhelming amount of requests, we are unable to take additional pictures of the cars for individuals – please make an appointment to come view them in person!”
It comes as absolutely no surprise that this is the case, and if you’re serious about cars, we’re sure you’ll be keen to head on down there and find the ride of your dreams. So, where actually is it?
The website outlines that Mike doesn’t ship his cars and only sells to people in person to avoid issues. If a Rasta Blasta restoration is on the cards – if it is, we’re very, very jealous – then here’s what you need to know…
Netflix: Rust Valley Restorers location
The location really adds to the show, and honestly, there aren’t many ideal places you can house a sea of cars like that.
It’s a sight many have been keen to see with their own eyes since the series arrived on Netflix, and fortunately, we have an address, as found on their website. The shop’s address is 4439H, BC-1, Tappen, BC V0E 2X2, Canada. Also, you can find it on Google Maps here.
As highlighted by Wikipedia, the garage is located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, which gives it that idyllic and somewhat distant feel; just a bunch of guys going off and doing their own unique thing. Nevertheless, the show’s setting has captured the attention of worldwide audiences.
Sure, similar series out there exist, but the chemistry, dynamic and passion of the trio arguably give this latest take on the restoration docuseries an entertaining edge. They’re incredibly humble – the kind you’d like to have a beer with, or you know, buy a car from!
It’s definitely worth citing their opening hours too, which appear to be 9 am – 5 pm Monday to Friday, giving the guys a much deserved weekend off to refuel.
What restorations do they have right now?
Obviously this is subject to change, and given the demand for their stellar work it’s likely the vehicles will alternate far more frequently courtesy of the exposure.
At the moment, they have such cars as a 1941 Ford Super Deluxe ($40,000 OBO), 1955 Chevrolet Belair ($20,000), 1957 GMC 1/2 Ton ($30,000), 1964 Ford Fairlane 500, 1964 Ford F100 ($20,000), 1967 Dart ($8,500), 1971 Dart Swinger ($12,000); for images and further info be sure to head over to the restorations page.
It’s certainly an exciting time for Rust Bros Restorations, and while there’s no news of a series renewal yet, the overwhelming response to the show – and furthermore, to what Mike and co do – we hope some season 2 news reaches us soon.
