Rust Valley Restorers is a Canadian documentary series produced by Mayhem Entertainment for History (Canadian TV network) in association with Corus Entertainment.

Premise[edit]

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains is one of the most unique car communities in the world: Tappen, British Columbia, or “Rust Valley.” You can’t miss it: acres upon acres of old and abandoned cars; a junkyard as far as the eye can see. At its heart is a remarkable restoration shop run by a team of colourful and charismatic characters. Using their impressive skills and experience to restore, trade and sell classic cars, they're transforming piles of rust into collectible car treasures.

Cast[edit]

  • Michael (Mike) Hall
    Mike Hall

Mike Hall is an eccentric entrepreneur, rust collector, and hippy capitalist. As the owner of a car restoration business in the Rust Valley, Mike combines his passions to turn his rusty car collection into gold.

  • Avery Shoaf
    Avery Shoaf

Avery is Mike’s lovable right-hand man and sidekick. He can do a little bit of everything when it comes to car restoration, earning him the nickname “Muscle Car MacGyver.” Avery will stand up to Mike when he thinks he’s making a bad business decision, but does so with a characteristic sense of humour and an endless parade of one-liners.

  • Connor Charman-Hall
    Connor Charman-Hall

Connor is Mike Hall’s only son and has been working for his father since he was fourteen. Like his dad, Connor loves restoring cars, but he also has the business skills Mike lacks. It often falls to Connor to ensure his dad stays organized, focused, and actually turns a profit – that’s his inheritance after all.
