The ‘Queen of Sh*tty Robots’ Just DIY’d Her Tesla Into a Pickup Truck
YouTuber Simone Giertz (aka the Queen of Sh*tty Robots) got tired of waiting for Tesla to release their pickup truck, so she made her own—and named it Truckla.
To realize her dream, Giertz teamed up with Bay Area mechanic and artist Marcos Ramirez, Tesla DIY enthusiast Richard Benoit (better known on YouTube as Rich Rebuilds), and German designer/YouTuber Laura Kampf. You can see a highlight of the entire build in the second video embedded above which shows all the trial and error it took to complete the Truckla.
Giertz first gained online fame with her viral sh*tty robots, but most recently was diagnosed with brain tumors and has had to undergo life-threatening brain surgery on multiple occasions.
