Early Life and Restoration Beginnings
There is limited information regarding Jared’s family, and education. It is known that he learned a lot of his skills at a young age thanks to his father, whom he joined in restoring old aircraft. They often looked for broken or run down air vehicles to restore, which would become the foundation for his restoration techniques. Soon, the two also started working on old cars in the same manner. The two also built cars such as hot rods, and this allowed him to gain an early understanding of vehicles in general.
He learned the nuances of automobiles including bodywork, fabrication, electrical, and tuning. After serving many years as a virtual apprentice of his father, he then decided to expand his skills even further. He trained in welding and took up classes to help him learn more about circuits,which allowed him to craft gadgets and do automobile-related electronics repairs. In 2006, he became involved in creating vehicles for salt flats racing – such vehicles have set numerous land speed records, and the Bonneville Salt Flats Race track is known for being the location of many of these.
Transition to Television
After Zimmerman worked on Salt Flats cars for the next four years, he then found his next opportunity in television appearances. This was during the time he was working for Rad Rides by Troy, which would be featured in the reality television show “Rides” for the TLC Network. The show follows automobile enthusiast Jason Priestly, as he explores concept cars and commercially released cars, including aspects of building and creating them. He was subsequently featured in the television show “Muscle Car” which is about rebuilding muscle cars, showcasing their history. He worked with Lou Santiago during the first season, but decided to quit during the middle of the season to return to his former employer.

In 2012, he participated in the “Scarface” parody called “Scartape”, which follows a video producer becoming a production assistant in a television studio with hopes of rising to power. Two years later, he also made an appearance in the television show “Superhuman”, but which only ran for eight episodes before getting cancelled.
Eventually, he made his way back into automobile-related reality television, becoming a cast member for the show “Car Fix” on Velocity TV. The show follows him alongside Lou Santiago as they find, fix and restore cars. They fix various types of vehicles from classic to modern day ones. They feature various products available in the industry today, and how easy it is for people to do fixing or restoring projects at home with the right tools.
The show features a return to the partnership of the two, who previously worked on “Muscle Car”, showcasing that they ended their partnership not because of each other but because of disputes between management and Jared. Like Jared, Lou is also an automotive builder, and a retired US Navy Seabee. The show has been airing for more than six seasons, also on Motor Trend and one of the main points of the show is its two hosts. According to the producers, the two are not afraid to take on any project from simple maintenance to concept builds. They’ve worked on high-end fabrication, superchargers, whole restorations, and tasks not usually tackled by the average automobile worker. According to his online profile, Jared can create complicated electronics from scratch due to his training and experience.
