Now, he owns this ZR1 and the Z06, but the latter will be replaced by a ZTK shortly.

He does crazy stuff with Corvettes, but I like it.
Yeah, this knucklehead will take this car and drive 200 MPH like he did with his Mclaren on the Interstate. If he gets caught or if he kills someone someday I donít think GM will want any part of this negative publicity. Can you say lawsuit? Just wait and see. This guy will take this vehicle out on the highways and byways of Pennsylvania soon when the weather warms and will make this irresponsible attempt. He has more moving ticket violations than you and your entire family will get if you would all live 5 life times. No thanks SS717. Youíre an irresponsible, immature, and reckless clown. Someday you will get killed or kill someone doing what you do. Pennsylvania State Police should take this guy down. He is a reckless menace to the motoring public.

^ Yeah, he needs to work out his goals on a track and not literally on the street. Unfortunately, he has made some questionable decisions in the past which an ordinary person wouldn't think of doing, even if we had the same selection of vehicles. Whether that's youth being wasted on the young or something else is left for debate. He just needs to be smart about it.

Living in PA my whole life I thought all our interstates were 200 plus mph, guess I'll have to pay attention to those signs.

Is there any track who would allow going 200 mph with a convertible?

That things looks awesome and it sounds monstrous too from the limited amount he got on it. I know the general opinion of most of the denim-shorts-crew on here is he's a douche but I find his videos somewhat watchable if you skip around and watch the ones that are actually about cars and not just some "Vlog" about BS. He's definitely a lot better than The Tool -- I mean, Nick, GuitarmageddonZL1.

And when he says doing 200 MPH I bet he means on a closed course and doing it for real instead of just opening it up on the interstate. At least, I would hope. I still bet his McLaren achieves 200 MPH much faster than his ZR1. That car just ripped to 200 MPH like most cars get to 140 MPH.

Let me guess, this the first verse in the prelude to a novel about a new Chevy ZR1 and itís rogue new owner. Great start....I like it. How does the story conclude?...death? It has potential.

In reality he seems like a cool guy. Doesn’t seem all that unresponsible either. Sure he does the occasional run in Mexico but so do a lot of others and he seems smart about how he does things. I’m sure a lot of guys are hating on him but he’s a grown man and came across his $ legally so I don’t see the issue.

I totally get you and this is why I don't watch his videos, except the one where he ran a heads/cam c6 z06 with his Mclaren since I was interested in the outcome.

How he came to fame says more about the "market" than him, IMO. Whatever he's doing is resonating with the market and creating his success, I wouldn't let that define who he actually is. Most people in his position would likely continue to "milk the cow" that he found

Met him at Carlisle. is he a little full of himself? yeah.. but he's got the fame/credit to back it up. he's a youtube star.

One thing i will say is he is respectful to the Police when he does get pulled over. there are plenty who aren't on youtube. He does need to spend more time on closed courses though because unlike reality "TV" he's doing some of these things where he could put himself in harms way with cars that run like his. Hopefully he picks up on some road racing. i think he would make some good videos if he were out there doin it. seems like a very smart young adult as well.

If you met him in person, i think anyone calling him a derogatory name would feel different. he was very nice to everyone speaking to him from what i witnessed. Of all the corvette internet people, he is the most personable and "open" bringing people into owning a car like this than anyone else out there (mostly robotic in their vids or too technical, his videos are raw, like speaking to a friend or young nephew).

Anyone who drives like a maniac threatening the motoring public with his immature, irresponsible behavior has mental health issues. This guy is truly a menace. Someday it is not going to end well for this guy. Nobody can justify what this guyís does... 200 M.P.H. on the pubic Interstate not to mention the numerous other times he drives well over a 150 M.P.H. I pray the Pennsylvania State Police locks this guy up. He needs to learn an important lesson about acceptable behavior in our society before he kills someone. And no, I could care less how much this guy makes off of YT vids, his perceived status, nor do I care about his acquired wealth. Rant over.

Wow...I didnít catch that! So if I understand you correctly youíre saying this poor soul has a dissociative identity disorder? You think maybe he is doing this so when he finally gets caught by State Police he can plead innocent due to mental health issues? Brilliant strategy you think? Great catch, Iíll have to be more observant next time I view him. Thanks.

He will get his comeuppance. Itís inevitable. Karma is a bitch and when it catches up with him his channel will achieve itís highest viewership. Jeopardizing peopleís lives every time he enters his vehicle is not my idea of a hero. Just hope innocent lives will not be lost because of this guyís ignorance.
