      With all the cars in California why would he review that turd?

      Stock suspension with poly bushings and the most common 350 combo of a mild cam, intake manifold, carb and exhaust.

      Also, not telling Matt the brakes are pure s*** prior to taking off on a spirited drive seems like a insane omission.

      It varies.
      05-19-2017 08:46 PM #7
      One of the first comments said all that needs to be said about that car:

      -Cowl shake
      - No brakes
      - Weak motor w/ "elderbrock" intake
      - Time bomb differential
      - 3 speed auto w/ aftermarket tach
      - Summit special mufflers
      - Sawzalled roof
      - Riced out headlights
      - Rattle can paint job
      This is THE Camaro stereotype car. Christ.
      Searching for "Elderbrock" and other variations of "Edelbrock" on craigslist is almost as much fun as searching for "rare".
      Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.

      Because if you don't drive a turd every once in a while you'll never have any perspective.

      Side note, I had an 81 Camaro and seeing even a picture of that body style brings back memories.....

      God what a tool. "I upgraded the suspension buy replacing the bushings" I'd like to appear humble, but this kid has no clue what the hell he's talking about.

      Also stereotypical flat-black 160 HP 3 speed 2nd gen with a badly installed sunroof and door speakers, and a tach by your knee Probably the most boring car ever featured on One Take.
      Typical forum guy with busted third-hand cars.

      I don't watch Matt's channel, but catch a video now and again. I checked this one out because he was Tweeting about it. The kid wanted him to pull the video down at some point. Also said he was "trolling" afterwards to cover up the fact that he was an idiot.

      The kid probably paid Matt to do a one take on his car to get traffic for his(the kids's) youtube channel. The ironic part is his car is such a hack job nobody is going to watch his youtube vids or subscribe to his channel.

      I checked out the kids channel and some other site he linked to. There's barely anything on any of them, and it's all terrible.

      He got my click, tho.

      I guess he used to have a bunch more vids but could not withstand the withering criticism of the intarwebs.

      I only watched the whole thing to see if Matt could keep it together. He's a lot nicer than I would have been.

      Same. That kid is so stupid that I could barely make it through the video.

      I love part where he's explaining that people were making fun of him for having a V6 in his last car and that he didn't know the difference between a V6 and a V8

      I died when he said he replaced the "suspension modules" on an '80 Camero. This is GhostXenons posting.

      I think his concept is really fun but I couldn't make it through that one. what are the "best" of these I should be watching? anybody? after "the brakes pull to the right because only the fronts work" I just skipped around and gave up on it.
