TORONTO, ON – The Rust Bros, a dynamic trio consisting of Mike Hall, Avery Shoaf, and Connor Hall, are the charismatic stars of the hit series Rust Valley Restorers on The HISTORY Channel. Hailing from Tappen, BC, the entertaining and creative auto enthusiasts breathe new life into tired and rusty relics, transforming them into stunning classic cars via their passion, creativity, and expertise.

The Rust Bros will be at the Toronto Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo on Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10 courtesy of eBay Motors. The show takes place at The International Centre, across from Pearson Airport. Mike, Avery and Connor will – for most of their time at the show – be located in the eBay Motors booth, at the east end of Hall 1. They’ll also be participating in fan Q&A sessions on the Meguiar’s Stage, on Saturday and Sunday.

Mike Hall, the seasoned veteran of the group, brings decades of experience and a keen eye for restoration to the table. With his extensive knowledge of classic cars and unwavering determination, Mike serves as the driving force behind many of the team’s ambitious projects. He loves to buy cars… but isn’t as fond of selling them.

Avery Shoaf, the team’s resident artist and fabricator, infuses each restoration with his unique artistic flair and craftsmanship. From custom paint jobs to intricate metalwork, Avery’s attention to detail and creative vision elevate the Rust Bros’ builds to new heights. And his infectious laugh is a favourite with the show’s viewers.

Completing the trio is Mike’s son, Connor Hall, the young and ambitious apprentice who is learning the ropes from his mentors, while bringing fresh ideas and energy to the shop. Connor also often serves as the voice of reason as Mike and Avery are formulating a plan.

Together, the Rust Bros tackle each restoration with enthusiasm and determination, showcasing their talents and camaraderie as they breathe new life into forgotten classics. Through their show on The HISTORY Channel, they’ve captured the hearts of viewers worldwide, inspiring a new generation of automotive enthusiasts along the way.

Known to never do anything in a boring way, Mike and Avery will drive cross-country from British Columbia to the Toronto Motorama show in a ’68 Chevelle that they dug out of the snow a few weeks ago and have been working on ever since.

“We’re looking forward to a big road trip all the way from Salmon Arm, BC to the Toronto Motorama show and to meeting a lot of people there,” said Mike Hall. “Our partners at eBay Motors are the show’s sponsor and a big ‘thanks’ to them for presenting our appearance there.”
