Rust Valley Restorers Mike Hall
Rust Valley Restorers Mike Hall – The makers of Rust Valley Restorers first spotted the potential for a TV show about Mike Hall and his Canadian restoration shop when he hit the headlines for making an unusual business move.
Mike Hall was a high-danger-pay-scale rock climber who appeared on the show Highway Through Hell. This show was a rather edge-of-the-seat series about the treacherous mountainous highways of British Columbia, and people who went through accidents, recovery, and towing.
In 2017, Rust Bros Mike Hall had decided that he wanted to get rid of his property and the cars on it and put the whole lot on the market for $1.19 million. Instead of lowering the price when he didn’t have any takers, Mike Hall increased the price to $1.45 million for Rust Valley Restorers and suddenly found himself at the center of a media storm, which led to the History Channel approaching him about a series.
Hall has two primary sources of income. These include his work on television and the restoration company he set up, ‘Rust Bros.’
Mike Hall’s net worth is $5 million.
Rust Valley Restorers Unlike Other Reality Shows
Rust Valley Restorers Mike Hall- Many of the motoring reality TV shows have become victims of their success. The repair shops in some reality shops and even the mechanics themselves have become so famous that they often carry out custom work for celebrity customers, while their other vehicles are priced well beyond the reach of ordinary motorists.
That isn’t the case with Mike Hall’s Rust Valley Restorers, as anyone who is a fan of the show can buy a car that has been given a new lease of life by the Rust Bros Restorations team, often at a very reasonable price.
Today, Hall continues to pursue his passion for restoring cool classics, even if it means selling them for less than he spent to repair them. And though he admits that fixing up cars doesn’t go as fast as he’d like now that he’s a reality TV star, Mike has a highly supportive wife (who’s also a classic car enthusiast), son, and friends who help him with this business.
Mike realizes that he owns more than he could possibly fix, so he is looking for a savvy investor to take over. Until then, he keeps working on the cars with his team as he pursues his passion for vintage car restoration. His friends and family worry that he often falls in love with the car they’re working to restore. They believe that this can cloud Mike’s judgment and cause him to sometimes sell the car for less than he spent on the restoration in order to give people their dream vehicles.
