As I start to see (and hear) more and more C8 Vettes the more I want one. Uh-oh!

I've seen this guy on YT and he seems pretty cool, doesn't come off as arrogant or snobbish, seems like a legit car guy!

His knows how to drive em but doesn’t know how to inspect a used vehicle. He bought a used McLaren out of state and realized the lower front end had prior damage half way home in a snow storm (Prior damage probably from parking over a curb). Took the dealers word on the condition, didn’t inspect or pay a pro to look over a $250000 car. Rookie mistake and an expense lesson. I wouldn’t say he is cool but he does decent videos and has learned to make good money doing what he loves, so props to him.

I think that his parents are rich or he has a rich girlfriend, if not, maybe this car is not his, he just made this video for advertising purposes.

He did a video about a year and a half ago detailing how he’s able to afford his cars. He seemed to be a bit annoyed that he needed to do this and I don’t blame him. If I recall he does some coding as an independent contractor as well as some video editing, which makes sense, given the quality of his YT videos. Add to that the money he does get from his YT views (not much according to that video) and it’s plausible.

After that, it’s just a matter of trading up and saving money. It’s not unreasonable to believe that someone can sell a couple Shelbys and buy a McLaren. I’ve done that myself with expensive bass guitars. Buy used, save money, sell the used at the same price I paid for it (or more) toss in the money I’ve saved and buy something nicer used. Rinse repeat. Before you know it, my portfolio of bass guitars is insured for over $50k.

Not to mention jealousy and a good bit of knuckle-dragging misogyny...

I missed this thread first time around until it was brought back from the dead. Seeing who the OP was, it's not a big surprise it started off on the wrong foot.
