I think you were at the same TVR reveal as I was, vaguely remember you, remembered your car more (only discovered video blogging, when you were videoing the TVR at Goodwood (who the hell is this guy, talking to his camera I thought?)

that aside, when did you put your order for a Griffith in? presumably at least before the reveal you went to, which means, you might get hold of a car quite early for review? (ie date of deposit - order of production)
Most likely that was the case, it was incredibly exciting to get to see the car after such a long wait. I can't entirely remember off my head how long ago it was that I placed the deposit but it was years ago now so fingers crossed on a fairly early car.

I'm in good communication with the team at TVR and I would like to do everything I can to support them in terms of exposure so if the opportunity is there to shoot some content about it in more detail then I will of course do so. Fingers crossed it's as exciting to drive as we hope but there's a lot to go before that, even if it's hearing more from Les himself, or viewing the sites they will be using.

Ahmed I am still very disappointed you got rid of the FF. I still think it's one of the greatest ferraris ever made (which is probably an unpopular opinion tongue out )

Hopefully one day an 812 or Lusso can enter the garage; I do miss the sound of a Ferrari V12!

James latest video is rather good, but he's not ticked that "paid promotion box" inspite of essentially admitting it at the start - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rus67C44inE&t=...

His last one with Michelin didn't have the box ticked for the first 24-48 hours, then at some point it did. I wonder if he's found a nice little way out of all the negativity it brings.

Interesting that Paul & Sam aren’t staying in Monaco for Top Marques. Instead the new crew of TGE, JE and Archie (& Tony?) are heading down. Chaos etc.

Maybe they realise how repetitive it is when every car YT'er attends the same event and churns out the same content?

You really can’t help yourself can you? New thread, I was hoping for a less ****y mood to the place.

Given that it they’ve both been down there for years and it’s a big thing for their followers it’s was surprising that’s all.

im glad they've jetted off to Usa, its cool they're going to do their own thing as I hate it when every single youtuber has their cameras out in each clip of each video.

I like how Paul's changing up his channel & being more inclusive of everything. we're doing more bits together later in the year it should be a lot of fun. hes a cool guy

About bloody time.

Speaking of which, doing the bushes on the M3 last night involved a lot of blood and swearing. Interesting to see if YouTube will flag the video up! scratchchin
Ive only ever been demonitized completely for using copyrighted music. I swear all the time & I get roughly the same views across all of mine, although i did notice the videos I dont swear in (Monster video & Toyota Video) got almost half my usual views! pretty weird but obviously theyre not my normal content so i cant imagine my viewers really wanted to see it, shame as i think they're cool videos lol

Anyone seen 'Fastest Car' on Netflix?

Look out for the chrome wrapped Lambo owner. Sure I've seen him before somewhere? wink

I see TGE's latest video is him shilling a 'supercar investment club'.
For £500 you can own one share in an SPV company that supposedly owns an F40.

Said company has been encorporated for less than 10 months, no accounts filed and is run by a 26 year old. What could go wrong?

And TGE is so confident in it, that he's got a whole £500 share in it (presumably gifted to him for doing the video).
