Derek Bieriv (Vice Grip Garage) Biography, Age, Height, Figure, Net Worth

Derek Bieri, also known as Vice Grip Garage, is an American car lover and a popular YouTuber. He’s famous for his content on the Vice Grip Garage channel. In his videos, he shares tips on budget car projects, restoring vehicles, rescuing forgotten cars, and explaining things in simple terms. His channel is all about bringing old vehicles back to life.

If you enjoy watching old, rusty cars being restored, you’ve probably heard of Vice Grip Garage. Many of these cars were left to rot, but Derek appreciates the history behind each one and wants to give them a better future.

What sets ‘Vice Grip Garage’ apart is Derek’s willingness to take on challenges without a script or a crew. He doesn’t have a safety net like some other car shows.

Derek was born on May 16, 1984, in Minot, North Dakota, USA. He grew up on a remote farm in North Dakota, where life could be tough. He learned his skills from his father and grandfather over the years. Although he’s not a certified mechanic, he picked up the trade by watching them.

He remembers observing his family working on the farm and ranch, fixing things with what they had, and rarely buying new parts. He’s an “old school” mechanic, relying on his senses more than fancy gadgets or expensive tools.

Derek learned his craft under Roger Zweifel, working his way through school while building and restoring many hot rods and classic cars from the 1940s to the 1960s. Even today, he doesn’t have official mechanical certification. This DIY mechanic, husband, and father of three boys is also known for Motortrend. He started the ‘Vice Grip Garage’ channel because of his love for saving classic cars and muscle cars and to share his experiences in the automotive world.

Derek Bieri career

Before becoming a full-time YouTuber, Derek had a successful career. He was a C-level officer, a former US veteran, and he owned multiple companies. People have always considered him a smart entrepreneur since he was young.

Derek’s connection to a 1956 Buick Special two-door hardtop added a new dimension to his life. It was a special car with family ties. He spent over a decade trying to find this Buick in Texas. He had owned it before, and so did his late father.

The car became an essential part of the Bieri family’s history. It was the first car he remembered from his childhood. He has many personal memories associated with the ’56 Buick. He remembers his dad painting the car in a garage with a dirt floor while Derek rode a plastic trike in the same place. His father had to hurry to paint the car for a parade the next day.

They used the Buick for family trips, and Derek remembers his dad driving with only one gear available. The car could only reach about 30 mph on those trips. Over the years, he worked on the Buick and improved it until an unfortunate fire happened just before the complete restoration. He had to sell it, but it didn’t feel right due to its strong connection to his dad.

Derek bought the car back and documented the 1500-mile journey from Texas to his home in Minnesota on his ‘Vice Grip Garage’ episodes.

Getting the cars he buys is often the most challenging part. Some cars have sentimental value, and he keeps them. He also keeps some for his children and sells the rest to fund his YouTube channel. He donates any earnings from motorsports competitions to charitable organizations.

Derek’s YouTube channel is a hit because many of his viewers have old vehicles with problems but are too hesitant to start working on them. They enjoy watching him do it.

In 2019, Derek bought a Chevy Monza race car, and both he and Adam LZ create vehicle content on YouTube.

Derek has more than 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube and 215k followers on Instagram. His wife, Jessica Beiri, and they have three children together. She actively participates in his work, featuring in some videos and posts on his Instagram, where she has more than 47k followers (hello_jessa_b).

Derek began making original YouTube videos in 2018. His famous video “Will It RUN AND DRIVE 600 Miles Home? 1968 Buick LeSabre 400 FORGOTTEN For 26 YEARS!” has more than 10 million views, and his channel has amassed 297 million views to date. You can find his merchandise on his official website,
