American reality star Thomas Weeks was enthusiastic towards cars from his early age. During his childhood days, he carefully observed his father’s (military and mechanic officer) work in the garage. His love for the engines was so much that he saved the cash he got for lunch. And, then he would buy the hot rod magazine, a monthly car-based magazine.
Interestingly, his parents admired his passion and supported him. His father even gifted him a 55 Chevy truck. Eventually, Thomas got interested in aircraft. He dreamt of flying and achieved his pilot’s license at the age of 16.
But, unfortunately, he could not achieve his ambition as he was color blind. So, he gave full attention to automobiles and mastered over the engine making. The Dallas native quotes cars and four-wheelers as his 'drug of choice'.
Misfit Garage, a reality show, is famous for constant arguments between the cast, endless disputes with Richard Rawlings and mechanical problems.
