Tavarish Net Worth – $2 million

What is Tavarish’s net worth? Who is Tavarish’s wife?


Tavarish is one of the most influential automotive tinkerers on YouTube.

With 2.62 million subscribers and more than 416 million video views by the end of July 2023, his expanding fan base almost outgrows his ever-growing car collection.

Tavarish is known for renovating and repairing broken-down vehicles, salvaging parts, and creating custom—if a little bit quirky—vehicles for his own collection.

The beloved Russian American car enthusiast works with $100,000 engines—like this one—just as readily as he’ll repair an abandoned van worth $850—this one from Pimp My Ride.

Here’s what we know about Tavarish—why his fans adore him, why auto enthusiasts watch his videos, and how he’s become so successful in such a short amount of time.

The Origin Story

A post shared by Tavarish (@therealtavarish)

Freddy Hernandez was born on April 25, 1987, in Novomoskovsk, Russia.

At the time, this was a part of the Soviet Union.

Hernandez’s family moved to New Jersey in 1990, which turned out to be perfect timing with the collapse of the Soviet Union the following year.

Initially, Hernandez’s family struggled.

They dealt with poverty early on, but Freddy’s parents both worked hard to put food on the table and provide for their young children.

In the late 90s, the Hernandez family bought a house of their own in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and Freddy attended elementary, middle school, and high school there.

When he graduated from Elizabeth High School in 2004, Freddy already had one achievement under his belt—he’d come up with the name Tavarish.

Tavarish is the romanized spelling of a Russian word that means friend or comrade.

The screen name would become his YouTube channel when he turned 19.


Tavarish has lived with his wife in Florida since 2016. The pair bought their first home there, a 3,000 sq. ft. mansion on an acre of land. Tavarish has explained that Florida was cheaper than New Jersey as far as property prices and taxes went.

He also mentioned that Florida’s motor vehicle laws are a little more lax—something that will suit the petrol head perfectly.

Before the pair bought their dream home, they’d lived with Tavarish’s parents in Elizabeth since their 2013 wedding.

In 2019, a car enthusiast posted online that he was looking for a cheap car.

Not just any cheap car—he was looking for something he and his wife could fix up and put in a playground for her special needs students to tinker with.

The internet responded with gusto, but there was a problem: the car needed to be narrow enough to fit through a 1.5m wheelchair access gate.

Nothing that the generous netizens offered could fit.

Then Tavarish reached out.

Despite being oceans away, he had a solution—he’d donate money for the couple to buy a car that fit the bill.

If there was any change left over, it would go to the special needs center.

To make things even better for the kids, a company called ADP Recovery also chipped in—offering to deliver the car to the center for free.

Tavarish has a breathtaking car collection.

It might change over time, but here are some of the rides he’s featured on his channel.

  • 1990 Chevrolet Camaro: a classic American muscle car.
  • 1995 Toyota Supra: Old school boy-racer style, which Tavarish plan’s to update with a large Mercedes grille.
  • 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo: This is the infamous Lambo that went down in YouTube history as the cheapest ever sold. The car had fire damage, but once restored—it was a thing of beauty.
  • 1996 Lexus LS 400: The Million-Mile Lexus. This car—famously owned by journalist Matt Farah—racked up a million miles on its clock before it was retired. Tavarish scored it for $1.
  • 2003 Marcedes SL55 AMG: One of Tavarish’s most beloved projects.
  • 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago: A $76,000 Lambo two-door coupe with a 6.2L V12 engine and 600HP.
  • Ferrari F355 Spider: The Spider was almost destroyed when Tavarish swooped in to salvage it.

Re-Pimping My Ride

On Christmas Day, 2019, Tavarish posted a video to YouTube of an old, pretty abandoned-looking 1999 Dodge Caravan.

The minivan had a bright purple paint-job and had been sitting in a car yard while its owners tried to get rid of it—for $850.

Tavarish, of course, snapped it up.

As it turned out, the Dodge Caravan had been featured in the early 2000s hit MTV show, Pimp My Ride.

What the show didn’t explain at the time is that they had swapped out the original broken-down 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager for a good condition 1999 Dodge Caravan.

The crew on the show pimped the Caravan and gifted it to an ecstatic owner. And then, some two decades later, Tavarish added it to his car collection.
