    So judging by your vids and that you have away ALL the tesla stuff you collected (haven't watched the vid yet but seems like you're over it) seems like a waste tho! Shoulda kept it going seems like a valuable collection as well!

    All that time and money spent on a salvage when you could have a clean title, which means Tesla isn't actively trying to disable the car.

    No because its a rebuild Tesla banned the car from the supercharger network after a few months - there is another video of his about that.

    Don`t feel bad. I probably am the only person who owned a Vega and a diesel Olds. I do not buy new tech anything anymore. Looked at a new Caddy this week and it has no spare tire. Sales says inflater kit is new tech. I asked how to fix side wall punctures of which I have had two. Thats when I got the new tech answer.

  • Dan R

    With collectable cars you often see asking price of $15,000, $30,000 invested. They are usually telling the truth and that is the one to buy, not the "cheap" fixer upper. Lest us lean from this video. Or a wise man learns form his mistakes, a wiser man learns for other mans mistakes!

    This guys entire courier relies on the success of Tesla because he wants to build a sister company to repair them. I don’t think he’s actually doing anything he says he’s doing, he’s not really building a sister company to repair Tesla, he wants your money for videos of him pretending to be interested in doing this. He wouldn’t be actively trying ruin Tesla if he was really trying to build this sister repair company. Nothing he’s doing for this business model makes sense. I don’t trust this guy to do anything he says he’s doing. I think the Tesla you saw him working on isn’t the one you saw running and working.

    That telsa build. Open doors to new money making opportunities for him. Hes making more money now because of that build. Its what made him a little famous. And he knows that. Weird he doesn't say that. The build probably wasn't that much.... He rebuilds telsa's at his shop. Why would he tell you its profitable and you should do it too?
