Bad Chad's Bugatti

Interesting guy. Part genius, part something else...full marks for working hard in the middle of nowhere to make a living doing what he loves.

He has a lot of stuff on YouTube, here's his latest short update. If you are interested check out some of the crazy cars he has built.

Bonus pints for recognizing his accent.

He has his own show on the Discovery channel, i've seen most of the episodes....his wife is smoking hot, and his son helps him out in the shop.

I think he's Canadian ?

He reminds me of the guy from CK Wraps, but odd.

I spotted the way he said "ouwt" instead of out like a lot of Canadian hockey players say it.
The video was annoying and I couldn't take more than a couple minutes. I skipped to the middle to see if it changed and after about 2 sentences I shut it off. That said, thanks to the OP for sharing. It never hurts to check out new and different things. Some work out, some not so much.

I have watched a few CK videos and think he is pretty good. Bad Chad, I watched the first season but I just do not care for the builds he does.

Only thing worth looking at in the Bad Chad show is Mrs Bad Chad.
The cars he makes are cartoon-cars, gimmicks.

Yes. He is way overchicked. And cartoon is a good description of his builds.

I like the CK Wraps stuff, they look and sound a bit similar. Bad Chad seems to always be looking off somewhere else.

Chad is located in Canning, Nova Scotia, Canada. That's in the Annapolis Valley, an agricultural area now producing excellent local wines. Not quite "the middle of nowhere" as suggested earlier. However, don't let secret out !
