The next Project Car

As of late I walk out into the driveway, look at the X, and just do not see a project truck. I have completed all of the major repairs, created videos on all of the major maintenance items, and made the changes I wanted to make to it. I’m not gearing up to get rid of it or anything but I really am seeing it as a bit of a dried up well.

What this says to me is that its time for another project car…

I have been going back and forth on a few different vehicles but at the end of the day I wanted a car that’s very different from the X. My criteria included:

Sports car
Manual/paddle shift transmission
Rear wheel drive
2 or 2+2 seating

The rest really doesn’t matter to me. Things like color, whether or not its a convertible, engine size, etc.

Now there are plenty of cars that fit all of those criteria. Rides like the Mazda Miata which is a classic and incredibly popular roadster. The Toyota MR-2 which is (relative to the miata) rare and rather unique looking. The Mustang, Corvette, Camaro, Challenger, BMW’s, Audis, etc…

I got to thinking about all of my options and referenced the list of cars I have already owned. I did this to remember why I hated certain cars/brands and reminisce about the cars I loved to decide if I wanted to relive any of that magic. Going back through that list reminded me of how much I hated my German cars so that immediately helped me eliminate any of those (like the Z4, TT, 3 series, and slk). I have always loved the “domestic muscle cars” so when I got to the Mustang on my list I knew the search was already over. It was cherry a cherry red GT convertible, manual, loud and ridiculous. I remembered how fun it was and how powerful it felt to drive a nice big V8.

That being said I immediately started shopping for my next mustang! I found one that fit the bill and now the fun begins! Take a look at the video below as my introduction to it!

More Moves

By now you probably think that I am running from the law…..

I really do move a lot. I feel like I say this every time but I am hoping to stay here a while. We have relocated to another city in Florida. I’m particularly excited about this move as this place has a really sweet garage. I mean look at it. Slat walls all over the place. TONS of tool storage and plenty of workbench space.

You may have noticed that I have already made a few videos here. Its working out well for the most part other than a particularly noisy water heater.

Anyways that’s all. Just wanted to update you on my latest move and show you newest studio space. Move videos coming soon!!

Taking a Short Break

A while back I mentioned that I need to move back to Florida. If you watch my videos you know that I just cannot stand the cold winters of Michigan. So a few months ago I started looking for a place down south and signed a lease about 3 weeks ago in the Orlando area. I have been creating content and stock piling it so I can release it during my move. I hope to only have a few weeks of gap while I get settled in and will hopefully be back to making videos on a regular basis shortly.  Below are some things that I am hoping to accomplish in future videos:

– Painting the trim on the X

– Painting the rims on the X

– Installing off-road lights on the X

-Install seat heaters in the X?

– Vinyl wrapping parts of the 300

– Cabin filter replacement on the 300

– Radio install on 2005 Mustang

– More radio reviews

– Car Review of the X

I am really looking forward to returning to the tropics. I will be able to make videos throughout the winter and not be stopped any incredibly crappy weather. I’ll be making the move in just a few more weeks and I hope to be seeing you soon from down in sunny Florida!

The Merch Store Is Now Open!

Other than the obvious car questions that I receive, I get two questions more than any others.

One – Where can I get that T-shirt that you wear in your videos?
Two – How can I support your channel?

Well to be clear, just watching RTCG videos is support enough. I appreciate everyone who comes to check out my channel and I would never expect more.

However, for those of you who want to do something more to support the channel, I have created a store on Represent.com. Here you can find official RTCG t-shits and sweaters for purchase. Represent.com handles all money transactions, inventory, and shipping and RTCG gets a percentage of the sales.

Race on over to https://represent.com/store/ry-the-car-guy and get your RTCG swag today!

Thank you for your support!
