Not even fair, the Isetta would smoke the Vespa, it's weighs nothing and has a 25hp engine. If I try, I can actually do small (one-wheel) burnouts.

Okay, just saw the Chris Harris vid.  I wanted to unpack my gear from the meet and use some decent cans for it.  All of a sudden, I got a GENIUS idea!

 

Magick, you should totally mount cameras on your cars and do review videos of them!!!  I'm serious!  smile.gif

 

Anyone else who thinks this would be nothing short of awesome, thumbs up this post!

That would be sweet!

 

And if he doesn't want to be seen on camera, he can just suit up ala Stig.  We don't need to see his ugly mug anyway.  wink.gif  Kidding Magick!

Me? Video? I hate the sound of my voice when it's recorded, far too nasally. Presenters require a certain vocal quality that I don't have. Also, there's the issue of privacy, I like mine. People, even neighbors, don't know exactly what I have, because I don't make a habit of showing them. It cuts down on burglary and vandalism attempts.

So that would be a "no" then?  How about the wife?  All Stig-suited up?  You can be the producer and run the show, she'll be the presenter.

Well there was that reviewer dweeb a while ago that wanted your cars, couldn't you hire him to be your professional on-screen personality? tongue.gif

Pay him with YouTube views and cheez-its. ph34r.gif

You strongly overrate her skill and enthusiasm for cars and driving. She doesn't like cameras and being videoed/photographed. Like me, it just isn't in our makeup to do things like that. The motivation for such actions is notoriety and recognition, usually to gain wealth. The first two would actually annoy me (we already have too many people who stalk or try to take advantage of us), and the third is fairly well in hand. wink.gif

The short, fat, snarky dude who didn't have insurance and wouldn't sign a liability form? Um, no thanks. I have a feeling there was a reason that McLaren and Ferrari both snubbed him, after thinking it over a little.

Yeah I didn't mean seriously, it'd be like a single video, something like

"Stupid reviewer wrecks [car]"

Would probably get more hits than legitimate reviews too. rolleyes.gif

Dont make a noise then just drive and let the car do the talking wink.gif

He could do it HiFiGuy style - "Hi guys, today we're going to unbox the Lamborghini Aventador ... wow, a lot of leather, I really like that ... very plush ... okay let's look at the accessories, it includes owner's manual, and some twist ties, I hate twist ties ... thanks guys for watching!" popcorn.gif

Would be even funner if he drove them while doing that "Lets drive the Aventador ... wow, did you see me blow past that cop? I doubt he can catch me ... so they've officially called out a helicopter to try and follow me ... this has now become a multi-state pursuit, I don't think they're going to catch me ... hi officer, can I do a video review of your car next?" ph34r.gif

"Hmm, there seem to be some fuzzy dice here... let me just get my trusty blade."

I still remember that "draw your favorite head-fi member" thread, and the one for him was just the first-person perspective with the blade.
