This man said it best.
He knows. They all do. Good job representing, guys.

The best part for me was the description of the commute required to get to their cars. I liked the inclusion of the Baja Bug – it shows this isn’t solely a rich man’s game.
I have to say my dream all my life – only briefly achieved in when I moved back to Miami and coul take the Metrorail back and forth to the museum – is to be able to work and shop without having to take my car, and have my car for only the things I want to do.

Time to move north? Philly, Boston, NY, DC should all be possibilities. Maybe also a few others.

yeah i think adding the bug was a good idea, even the GTV6 for that matter. It was a little more laid back kind of like his older “depth of speed” videos where I feel like they showed a little more of the “everyday car guy”.

Depth of Speed was great. Glad you remember it!

Excluding some of the really high-dollar cars we have profiled, do most not seem like “everyday car guy”? I feel like a lot of those guys we have done are what I would consider “everyday car guys”(like the BMW’s, Skylines, etc.) That could be that I spend a lot of time with them and get to know them more in depth than I can show in a video.
Thanks for your comment, I will try and see if I can capture that a bit more.

I was including the high dollar cars in my first response. But yeah I suppose excluding them, yes, most of the videos are still the “everyday car guy”. I was sitting and trying to decide how I was going to explain myself in that first response without coming off like an a-hole. Thats not me, I love every form of automobile from the stance scene, a perfectly kept factory stock car to a rat rod. For some reason the ones that stand out to me are the ones that seem ocd and their garages look like they belong in a magazine and, well, fake in my opinion. No garages I see come near that. They have oil on the floors, jack stands everywhere, tools scattered all over…thats just more of what Im accustomed to and I guess thats what I want to see. What you are doing is great, dont change it! I do love seeing the other side of the spectrum. I just feel its been more one sided lately. Keep doing what got you where you are Mr.Clason, your videos are really a work of art. I just really enjoyed this latest video for many reasons.

No worries, I think in my original response I had a good understanding of what you were referring to. I agree with you though, I need to push to get into more garages where people are working on what they love.

A great reminder of one of the big reasons I never had any urge to move back to NYC. The enthusiasts interviewed certainly demonstrate an impressive commitment to the car hobby, and I respect that. But seriously, getting to their cars is only the beginning of the hassles of owning and maintaining a car there, not to mention the added expense, wear-and-tear on the car and the owner, planning and execution time to just “take a drive,” etc. Impressive, but no thanks.

Well put, Larry. It’s certainly not for everyone. One might even go so far as to say it’s not for most car-loving people.
