The Rust Bros run a little shop which is owned by an extremely chilled, dread lock wearing father – Mike, and his son who can never see eye to eye with his father – Connor.
Avery is Mike’s sidekick and often keeps making Mike from making over eccentric business decisions. He has a big range of skills and often helps around with everything in the shop.
They have a small team of very talented individuals who make some of the most unique modifications on the junk yard treasures that Mike has hoarded over the years, and Mike ultimately always ends up getting his way with the builds.
