as our lead mechanic, Wade, was leaving Thoroughbred Diesel
he heard the sound of a revving diesel truck engine. The sound
was like sweet music to Wade's ears. He could not contain
the urge to find out who owned that finely tuned machine.
Much to his surprise he found a muscular, Kentucky bred Thoroughbred
standing in the shop. Wade immediately knew he and that fiery
stallion were destined for great things.
composed himself, he immediately asked if the gray horse wanted
to join the ranks at Thoroughbred Diesel. With a sly smirk
and a nod, Turbo accepted the position of Diesel Mechanic
Assistant. The bond that Wade and Turbo formed working together
was nothing short of magical.
Let's rewind a few years. Turbo grew up on a small Kentucky horse
farm. Even as a foal Turbo was immediately drawn to working
with his hands and fixing engines. But Turbo wasn't like the other horses his age. While they passed the time
grazing in the field and racing each other, he spent his days
in the farm's barn tinkering and fixing engines. As
he got older, he freelanced as a mechanic for the neighboring
farmers. He worked on anything with an engine from trucks,
tractors, and even some cars.
was happy, but still longed for more. One day, he finally
had the courage to go visit his favorite diesel shop, Thoroughbred
Diesel. For years he followed their YouTube channel and soaked
up all the information he could. On a foggy September morning,
Turbo packed his bags, loaded up his rig, and hit the interstate.
The destination --Winchester, KY. The rest, as they say, is
history. He joined the Thoroughbred Diesel team that very
is timid at times, but has a bit of a hot head when pushed.
Turbo is extremely passionate about anything diesel related.
He loves working on diesels and lending a helping hand around
the Thoroughbred Diesel shop. He especially loves to lift
heavy objects. Turbo also loves to meet other diesel enthusiasts
and fans. Turbo, of course, loves to take lots of pictures
with people. Just make sure to get his good side!
