    2. nun

      Rich why don't you approach discovery channel for an Electrified Garage series, you got as much energy as Rich Rowlings you'll give gas monkey a run for its money.

    3. JJBpilot

      If the front end is Corvair, and probably the brakes, Clarks Corvair will have everything that you will need....

    4. Zuhir True

      Being rewarded in life is one of the best feeling seeing everything coming together.

      Tesla used a 1931 perice arrow with a 25hp electric motor and a 8 foot antenna,it was said the antenna was to use static electricity to to never have to stop and charge the batterys

      This video get the award for worst sounding microphones. I swear all of his other vids sounded a million times better.

      when I go to the optometrist they first check me with my glasses on, I can see fine no surprise there... then they are like "now take your glasses off" I usually say "there is no use, I cant see the biggest letter on the chart" and they are like OK well then.

      That's not vinyl, that's vegan leather.

    9. Mr. S308

      waiting for the next video to drop... cmon Rich!!!

    10. DeanRendar84

      wow, everything is manufacturable with a company of 1, modern 3d printers, and machine part printing software, scrapyards really are just for nostalgia at this point, and probably making scrap sculptures on art grants.

    11. Bino 9903

      What camera do you use?

    12. Zak Wharton


    13. Patrick Orduna

      Rich? it's been six days no updare on the rat rod ev?

    14. Leslie Eveson

      If Tesla were more open to 3rd party repairs, they could have a whole new business providing conversion kits for ICE vehicles.

    15. Captain Zoll

      who needs hydraulic brakes when you have regen?

    16. Roadstercycle

      Rich, I'm in California and heard you scream. Hahahaha

    17. Roadstercycle

      Rich, I'm in California and heard you scream. Hahahaha

    18. electrohacker

      The company I work for is auctioning off a model 3 body with the drivetrain removed. The auction ends 9/25. If you're interested in such a thing let me know and I'll buy it for you to buy it off me. If not, no sweat just thought of you when I saw it.

    19. Troy Pickens

      Have you seen this Video about Carl the Tesla Roadster Whisperer?

    20. Tucker McElhone

      Thats awesome. What kind of car was that?

    21. Adam Domonski

      Damn stop sneeking ads on me

    22. Sean Holladay

      Congrats on the brand deal!!

    23. pollodormido2

      Your eyes are ok you just needed a beer!

    24. Straw Man

      An electric rat rod... thats a sin.

    25. Anthony Barthel

      Hey Rich, love these videos. There's a company called Clark's Corvair ( that sells all sorts of Corvair parts and the prices are fair and quality is good.

    26. bobsdavenport

      It's all too heavy for the motors power output. 60mph might come in 3 days though

    27. Kaufman Entertainment

      You can get new wheel cylinders. S-10s, Impala/Caprice, or maybe even Silverado parts might work. If it's the same size, it'll work.

    28. adam ganjaman

      Hi Rich figure out how to enable regen or is your controller compatible ?

    29. centopus

      Why not move the back brakes to front? Are those different?

    30. pipbuster

      Stumbling over the curb and everything else going to the eye exam was hilarious... I literally LOL'd several times including the actual eye exam... LMAO

    31. sean bragg

      Call scarebird convert to disk

    32. Membrane556

      The coupler between motor and transmission input shaft is hard enough to get right many people use a jaw coupling to deal with any misalignment.

    33. J G

      Your videos scare the hell out of me and I love it.

    34. James Hall

      Okay, I "literally" screamed out loud over the eye exam!! Too funny!!

    35. Dave Mitchell

      Jesus Christ - EBAY!!

    36. Adam Blaknovski

      Bmw rack and pinion systems are ace, if you can't find an E30 manual rack, you can run a power rack and pinion system from a later BMW without fluid and a little grease and vented I/0 or with fluid and a loop plate to recirculate the fluid. I imagine the latter would last forever.

    37. Chas Riggs

      I'm pretty sure, You just achieved the "BIGGEST AUTOMOTIVE HACK" on, "CZ-news" Award! Congrats!!!! I guess.....

    38. Seez Santos

      Bruh they for eyes exam got me 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    39. Lawrence Ross

      Go go Clark's Corvair!!! I own a '66 Corvair.

    40. Olexiy Mamchy

      I have no interest in cars and tesla. But I saw video about this channel on vice and subscribed instantly because what you do really inspires! This is just great! People like you actually keeps this world from falling apart! Thanks!

    41. Charlie

      I highly suggest you add a Guibo to your coupler some how. They are typically used on german vehicles on the output shaft of transmissions to drive lines.

    42. Cameron Collins

      Absolutely fucking lost it 13:30

    43. Lobby DaLobster

      I am no expert - but wouldn't it be easier to get disc brakes for the front off something more readily available?

    44. egigster troll

      People who snitch drove those? Sammy the bull owned one?

    45. egigster troll

      If half his subs buy one..

    46. egigster troll

      1 t shirt for over $18 hehe

    47. Hutson Heller

      The brakes not working is this car's last ditch effort to kill you for sinning against the petrol gods by taking you down with it, which is all you deserve.

    48. cwbh10

      Did you go to Desktop Metal??

    49. Thelongmanable

      That intro was to many repeat of the tired old Porsche that confused you with the Tesla logo and car.. Also it simply wasn't satisfying..

    50. Phil Gordon gordon

      Need to convert to disc... It is way easier than trying to find or fan parts and ensures good stoping

    51. Sunjay Sharma

      Since these brakes seem like a hassle, why not upgrade to discs? You could probably get most of the hardware from a junkyard to negate costs too. Just wondering if theres a reason?

    52. Michael Graham

      Rich reminds me of yahoo serious ,young Einstein .

    53. StarMan

      What have you done with the Shop Garage? No news, no videos nothing from it? Was it an April Foools or wt?

    54. Bill Mercado

      I was you I do brakes disk in the front more braking power is just my opinion

    55. glues4wood

      Change the hole front parts to something more common and available

    56. Michael Cook

      I lost it when he tripped on the curb. Subbed.

    57. BostonRacinglife

      Just ls swap it

    58. Adam Martin

      Rich, what are you doing bud? I know you’re trying to be funny and such but as the now owner of garage that works on other people’s cars it doesn’t inspire confidence in the way you have carried on with this build. This was an opportunity for you to be an EV East style garage and your kinda blowing it.

    59. LaForrest Roxbury

      Rich, it looks like you are working in reverse. The old brake master-cylinder in on the car at the end, while your are working on the motor to see if it spins? Keep up the good work. Rich if ain't broken, you can't fix it ! I always say ! Be blessed

    60. Henden Gayoma

      The skillshare plug got me LOLing hard. 🤣

    61. marcos ramos

      Who else skips through the video to seee the actual progress?

    62. mbaker335

      WOW you use the whole word 'merchandise'. You are literally literate. I really hate the use of the word 'Merch'. That's sort of lazy and you prove you are not by all the excellent videos. Literally.

    63. Glen Jones

      ACTUALLY, I think that you might as well go ahead and do a full disc conversion! Might as well since you are doing everything else .

    64. Christien Tiberio

      Yo I live In Methuen shoutout To u man

    65. David M

      When I was a broke college student, I had a '64 Corvair, and couldn't afford brakes. One day, the pads were so worn that the wheel cylinder ran out of play and just popped off the ends. I coasted through an empty intersection and from then stopped with the gearshift until I could get them done.

    66. Bird76Mojo76

      Welcome to the world of hotrod building. You either have it in you or you don't.

    67. Pat O

      Rich is going to die in the next video driving that thing 😢

    68. Mike G

      I got a 23 T bucket kit car sitting in my back yard, wish i never bought it

    69. Khaffit

    70. Sterling Silver

      The interior is looking good! 👍
