Cassidy Mceown is a well-known automobile lover, restorer, ambitious mechanic, and television personality who became popular after she joined the Rust Bros Crew in December 2018 and she starred in Netflix’s popular series Rust Valley Restorers based in Tappen, British Columbia.
Mceown is 21 years old and she is pretty interested in being a mechanic because of her love of cars or automobiles. Many even call her an automobile guru and today in this piece we will be talking about 21 years old Cassidy and her life behind the ‘Rust Valley Restorers.’ By the way, many people have been asking if she has a boyfriend or not, and certainly, we will also talk about that in this article.
Her real name is not Cassidy Mceown
It is no surprise that she decided to choose a different name on screen and I think that it is pretty understandable too. Anyways, her real name is Cassidy Waardenberg as per her Facebook account. However, it is also believed that ‘Mceown’ is her middle name.
As mentioned, she is 21 years old and she was born on December 21, 2000, and this year she will turn 22. Although she was born in Cherryville, North Carolina, United States, she grew up in Enderby, British Columbia, Canada. Various sources have claimed that she is not the only child of her parents but unfortunately we don’t have any information on her family.
Reports have it that the city she grew up in was pretty safe and she used to play various like baseball or dodge ball games with her friends there.
Cassidy Mceown is a student of Okanagan College
Mceown went to A.L. Fortune Secondary School and after she completed her studies, she joined Okanagan College where she studied Auto Collision Repair. Later she joined Prestige Collision-Vernon (an automotive repair shop) as an intern.
We can say that she was interested in automobiles as she joined the repair shop and after she joined the auto repair she got new knowledge, and experiences, and she got the opportunity to sharpen her skills.
Cassidy Mceown in Rust Valley Restorers
She joined the series back on December 13, 2018, in the second episode “All in the Family” of the series. And if you don’t know then Rust Valley Restorers is a show where various car experts turn old and rubbish antique cars into reusable ones. She was just 17 years old when she joined the series.
She is a pretty fast learner and the most valuable member of the show because reports have it that she is the most loved member of the show. She is also the only female to appear on the show and she assists the other members (car experts) of the show.
She got her driving license on the third try
Although she is an automobile enthusiast she was not good at driving a car and when Mike (the main star of the show) asked Mceown to drive and pick up a few car parts in episode 1 of season 2 she says that she does not have a driving license. Mike then says that a driving license is a must to work at Rust Bros, she then gets instructions from Mike and Avery to drive.
By the end of the episode, we see that Mceown gets much better at driving and she also passes her driving test however, it took her three tries to pass the test.
Why is she interested in automobiles?
Mceown is pretty interested in cars but how did she grow interest in automobiles? well, according to various sources, she grew up in a family of automobile lovers and she used to spend time with her father in the garage. She also claims that she used to work on automobiles ever since she was a kid.
Well, it makes perfect sense because Mike wouldn’t have hired her if she didn’t have any knowledge about the cars, and more than that she was just 17 at the time she joined Rust Bros.
