      If you're interested in doing a e46 LS let me know. My car isn't going to get the love it deserves and i think it would make a pretty dope track car for your channel. E46 Widebody w/5.3L.

            Can you also write off the cost of buying the car as part of your business?

              Adam, love your videos, question, why a gt3rs versus the gt2rs, specially since you love turbo cars?!

                              because they value the attention. 200k is a cheap price for tens of millions of views not to mention the path of success being laden with materialism and fitting in. ITS BECAUSE YOU GOTTA LOOK THE PART JACKASS. im one second in and this is a generalization for "non car people bloggers" of course some people just like the cars, very few are selling them for a profit and most are buying attention.

                                These Vlog channels are weaksauce bull shit from a content perspective. Literally nothing of value to add what so ever.

                                            Interesting to think ab the economies of scale and how the bigger vloggers who gets millions of views on each video could hypothetically buy their super cars for free and make huge amounts of money with them

                                                Flogging a dead horse is the saying you were looking for. Although Americans do tend to ruin and shorten sayings so you could say whatever you want I guess. I have never seen your channel before but disagree that you need many cars to keep the audience entertained. There are channels out there where the presenter owns 2 or 3 cars and they do well enough to make a good living from YouTube.

                                                    Save 25 minutes and read this. Pay taxes or (invest in your business) buy vehicles. It’s business. And a tax game with the IRS.

                                                      You factor selling the cars to rationalize a profit, but then explain how you have so much into them it would actually be a loss...have you sold any of them at all? How do you make money when you arent selling them as you explained in the beginning?

                                                        I learned how stupid it is to buy a car at a young age, I bought a 2002 M5 Brand new when i picked it up from the dealership it had 3 miles on it. I went to swing past my business partners house to take him for a spin and he said when we get into the office on monday im gonna make you mad. So on monday morning he comes into my office pulls up Kelly Blue Book on my PC and proceeds to show me that i lost 7K just by driving the car off the lot,i only put 98 miles on the car over the weekend so the milage was 101 and the car was worth 7K less than i paid. Cars are the biggest depreciating asset you could ever waste money on.

                                                              Adam - when you're sitting down and are stationary with respect to the camera, turn off its auto-focus. Go back and look at around 22:00 the autofocus is hunting between your face and the Michelin stamp on the left-front of the GT3 RS. Set the focus, check it, and turn off auto-focus for stationary shots. Otherwise our visual interest is stolen.

                                                                Really interesting breakdown. I think you may not have to pay any taxes though on your endeavor. Im not sure how your relationship with youtube works. But if they basically subcontract with you then I think it creates an interesting situation. Because making these videos is your business then you should be able to write off all your expenses for said video or "series". You purchased the car for $57,000, but it only generated you $48,000. This is a net loss of $9,000 plus what ever other production costs you may have. Then, when you file for taxes you should technically have a net loss of $9k. When you sell a car for less than you purchased it for, you dont owe any taxes, only the buyer does(this is another issue i wont get into lol). So, I dont think you owe any taxes in this one instance. Obviously you need to do this on a larger scale with all your videos and figure your costs vs revenue in total. But dont pay more taxes than you need to! Id be interested to hear back from anyone that may know better than me lol, im not a CPA.

Lol plus now new viewers will go watch more videos because of this video about the mustang and give you more views on other cars. Plus all the mustang videos got you views of other videos. It’s never ending-keeps going and going . Lol And your slick , during this video you talked about other cars and content so people will go watch those. Oh and you talked about the future of the channel so to keep views coming from this basically mustang profit video. And that’s why you’re doing so well . It’s impossible to figure out the chain reaction revenue from any of these videos or cars. Keep up it bro

From the outside it looks like the ultimate lifestyle when in reality it’s actually better! LOL. I would assume it’s not all sunshine and rainbows but still a pretty extraordinary opportunity. Well done, I love the channel, always entertaining and engaging. Cheers mate✌🏻
