Everyone I know that has met Mike says the same thing. Iíve been watching his videos since he got his truck, and he hasnít forgotten where he came from. He doesnít even vlog at events because heís so busy meeting fans and subscribers. I hope to meet Mike, RPM, and the 717 crew at the callout.

I canít wait to see whatís in store for his Z06 and what yíall are cooking up for the ZR1(s).

We will deff all be there. Yes that is correct. Mike doesn't vlog at events Bc he takes the time to meet fans etc. if he record the entire event it's not special to go to them. If you met him you would never ever guess he has money. He worked for it regardless of what anyone thinks is a "dumb" job or anything like that.

Fran, rolling up the window on your camera guy is a douche move kidding, I always get a kick outta that! I agree, Mikeís a cool dude, probably one of the few who use cars to their potential,rather than collecting dust!

I've seen a bunch of his videos but must have missed the parts where he drives like a maniac.
Mental health issues? Dude lets kids sit in his $200k McLaren at car shows. Always seems to talk to everyone with respect as well. Not sure where you're coming from with all this craziness. I caught your responses in another guy's thread on an annoying neighbor and I'd have to say to me it seems like you have the mindset of a liberal twink. Now my rants over.

Do I care about his clickbait videos and his youtube sensationalism? No.

Point is, Mike is bringing more young people to like Vettes. That's a win in my book.

Yes all from youtube.... He made like 40k a year as a financial advisor before he was able to quit and do youtube full time. Hes not a dumb kid at all like most people think he is.

I certainly donít think heís dumb, was just curious how he made so much money. I donít understand how people can make so much on YouTube with less than a million subscribers. Sponsors?

Ad revenue. Itís not the amount of subscriber but the amount of views.

I have a close friend that is just starting the youtube thing. You have to have over 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time before a channel can become monetized.

I was told that roughly every 750,000 view equals about 2000.00 from ad revenue.

Mikes videos usually hit around 350K views in just a couple days. Some have well over a million views and they will always continue to get more views.

starting watching his channel when he got his C7 stringray. He was one of the first to offer owner reviews. Been a fan since. Like him, hate him no matter I'll still watch him.
