I'm back to the exact same place I was 5 years ago with this car. It's crazy to think about how much has changed since then. . . . #SupraSunday #Supra #ToyotaSupra #Mk3Supra #A70 #MA70 #7M #7MPowered #7MGTE #7MFanClub #7MFanGirl #ToyotaTechnician #ToyotaSpecialist #WomenWhoWrench #GirlsWhoWorkOnCars #FemaleMechanic #LadyMechanic #GirlsWhoLoveCars #GirlsWhoFixCars #GirlMechanic #AllGirlsGarage #FayeHadley #PistonsAndPixieDust
Her father, who has a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), had a lot of influence on her career, as under his wing, she took an interest in mechanics, and was more of a tomboy than a lady. As she was grew-up her interest in the automobile industry intensified. While at the university she took a road trip in a Volkswagen GTI which had its engine die, and as she didn’t have enough money to pay for a new engine, she entered a car repair shop as a volunteer to learn all about engine repairing. This turned useful for her later career, but before she started living off repairing cars, Faye studied at Harvard University, from which she obtained a degree in psychology in 2010.
Faye was a psychologist before she switched hospitals and private offices for garages and repair shops – she moved to Portland where she joined a repair shop on an unpaid internship. After a while, she was employed a Toyota dealership, where she earned a few certifications which enabled her to move further in her career. She joined a garage that specialized in older vehicles, and eventually started her own auto repair and education foundation, Piston & PixieDust. Based in San Antonio, Texas, it is a repair shop but also an educational course about cars for women by women.
Rise to Prominence
Her career progressed and she was becoming more successful – numerous people heard about her work, and she started teaming up with other women car repairers. This earned her stardom in the US, but she broke to international fame in 2019, when she joined the reality TV show “All Girls Garage”. The show was hosted by Jessi Combs, who sadly died in a car crash in August 2019 while trying to break the women’s land-speed record which she had set in 2016. Teaming up with other female mechanics, Faye worked on such vehicles as BMW 325i, Ford Mustang GT, Chevy Camaro 1971, GOT Convertible from 1967, and many others in the 15 episodes in which she appeared in the popular show.
In addition to her success on television, Faye has also launched her online career with a YouTube channel. Although she opened her channel in 2013, her first video was uploaded just four years ago, since when she has claimed more than 50,000 subscribers, and has around three million views. Her channel features videos related to her profession, which often feature her classes and advice to various car problems.
Some of her most popular videos include “How to Service a Sealed Toyota Transmission”, which has around 350,000 views, then “I Bought my Work Truck from a Junkyard!!… Here’s Why.”, (280,000 views), and “How I Started my Mobile Mechanic Business, and How I Market Myself?”, with just over 200,000 views, among others with thousands of views that have contributed to her wealth and popularity.
