Tyler Hoover s Biography
Tyler Hoover, currently 34 years old, was born in 1987 in Wichita, Kansas, USA.
He is a popular YouTuber who buys, restores, and sells cars.
But unlike other YouTuber who just established their channels for business purposes, Tyler’s
channel was made up of his passion since he was a kid.
Now, Tyler is living his dream life.
As a young boy spending his time in Wichita, Tyler owned around 100 model cars.
This shows Tyler’s interest and passion for automotive at a young age.
Tyler graduated from Andover High School in 2005 and continued his education at Wichita
He was majoring in political science and government.
While studying, he worked as a car salesman for several car dealerships such as Cadillac,
Chevrolet, and BMW.
The good thing with Tyler is that he managed to keep in touch with his passion despite
having a different major.
Then in 2010, he graduated and quickly established his car dealership.
He proudly called this “Ad Astra Automotive,” which aimed to search for good quality cars
at auctions, acquire those, and resell them for profit.
His business was doing good until he decided to expand, and due to reconditioning costs
issues, the firm became unprofitable.
He decided to close it in January 2015.
Tyler then bounced back and started working for FFC Midwest as opening coordinator and
In this job, he was able to go on local television promoting new Freddy’s locations around the
Though he loved the job, Tyler’s passion for automotive still goes noticeable like an itch
until he couldn’t take it anymore.
So he took a part-time job as a writer at a website mainly for car buyers and sellers
called AutoTrader, aside from writing for Jalopnik.
At this time, we could now see the birth of his YouTube channel as “Hoovie s Garage.”
It was finally created on September 8, 2016, right after quitting his job at the FFC Midwest.
It was not his intention to create YouTube videos, but because AutoTrader requested him
make one, he took the risk.
The only catch in this channel is Tyler had the freedom to talk about cars and relay his
passion and love for automotive to his viewers and car enthusiasts.
After a couple of videos, he got the hang of it.
In 2019, he married his Vietnamese wife Quynh Anh Hoover, whom he fell in love with from
the first day they met at an Asian buffet restaurant, officially tying the knot long
after their daughter was born in 2011.
They added a cute baby boy to the family right after.
Tyler s Lifestyle
For those who love cars and, at the same time, really like to watch YouTube, you may have
come across “Hoovie’s Garage,” which is clearly popular as it has 1.31 million subscribers
at the moment.
There are over 450 video uploads on this channel and an overall total of 300 million views.
Hoovie’s Garage is a channel that focuses on automotive, especially in revamping cheap
cars into gorgeous ones, which he calls “The Hoopties Fleet.”
His very cool and amazing transformations include repairing a broken Mercedes S600 V12,
which was bought for 4500 dollars only.
But Tyler s total investment reached up to approximately $13,000 to restore the car.
But that s okay.
He might have cashed out a huge amount of money, but the restoration video that he made
garnered over 5.4 million views.
Another video that brought his channel to fame was when he compared Hyundai and Rolls
Royce stating his opinion on which one is more luxurious.
This video was viewed over 4.9 million times.
Added to the list of his most viewed videos is his stolen Mercedes ML55.
It was uploaded in 2017 and has collected 3.9 million since then.

increasing the channel’s number of views.
It is also reported that as of October 2021, his channel had 4.27 million views for the
past 30 days.
But aside from restoring cars, his channel also shows the whole process involved in his
craft, from sourcing, buying it from auctions, and repairing the cars with his mechanic,
“The Car Wizard.”
Tyler also shares some insights about cars, explaining each pro and cons to his viewers
in a very fun and entertaining way.
This explains why many people say that he is so goofy and fun, but at the same time,
very genuine and passionate.
Through the years, the channel grew larger and larger, garnering millions and millions
of views and viewers enjoying the content he truly is passionate about.
But what makes Tyler so passionate about what he does?
Well, as one can tell, restoring and customizing a car and making it look better cause a hefty
amount of money.
This is what happened to Tyler back in 2017.
He was losing a lot of it.
But Tyler, being the man he is, showed that he is not concerned about what he can make
It is his passion and the love of cars that keep him and his channel going.

on June 8, 2019, on the FYI channel, “Jay Leno’s Garage” in 2019, “Captain’s Log” in
2020, and “Car Trek” in 2020.
But just like any other success story, Tyler faced challenges, too.
Challenges, problems, and losses will always be there.
Tyler included stolen cars, botched auction deals, massive losses, and cars that wouldn’t
But because his job is his passion, he continued doing what his heart desired until he had
risen to the occasion and soon made six figures in YouTube ad revenues and partnerships.
