Default All Things Tavarish

Tavarish has an entertaining youtube channel. He wrenches on his cars a lot. Much more than most youtube car guys. Tavarish buys a lot of the cars you see other youtubers give up on. Ferraris that burned up, blown motor cars, etc.

Here, he is buying a Lexus LS400 with 1,000,000 miles for $1. He's going to install a turbo and go for Hellcat level power. Should be interesting. Can a million mile Lexus engine/drive train hold up with that kind of power?

Yeah, Farah sold it to him for $1.

Farah had friends drive it everywhere and write about their experiences in a log book. He and his friends put over 100K miles on it in a few years and got it to 1 million miles.

Lot of history in that car. Now, the engine is going to go bang after Tavarish adds insane levels of power.

Comments from viewers convinced Tavarish to change his plan for the Lexus. He's going to restore it so it's like new then sell it for charity.

That should be cool.

Tavarish talks about his history, how he got started in repairing cars, his past life, etc. I didn't know he's a Russian immigrant. Shows how immigration is a great thing for the immigrant and for us when people like Tarvarish immigrate to the U.S.

Interesting video.
