Today we talk a little bit about our year in review, show off a new car for Car Side Chat and discuss the controversy surrounding H2Oi and what Greta's climate speech means. Tune in!
The year in review for What It's Like to Drive, Season 1.
When I came up with this crazy idea for my first real show I really didn't expect much attention from it. I mean seriously, who would hand the keys of their prize possession over to me to experience?
Well, try 600 of you! That's right, 600 people from our car community volunteered to allow their cars to be on the show. It just showed how awesome our community is! We didn't have time for 600 so the list was broken down to 24 and then for the weeks we had to film we landed on 12 episodes for the year. That was the goal.
Although some people had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, some of which were very sad, we still managed to land on 10 episodes for the year! That to me was a very successful year.
What we learned was incredible. We learned that people who work on their own vehicles have a passion and quality that is unmatched. That every quality car doesn't have to be a show car to master what it does. I cannot tell you how rewarding it was to drive my dream cars. Yes, every one of them ended up being a dream car for me.
We though the Drift AE86 video would dominate, but by the end of the year and people caught wind of the show the people had spoken, putting the 1966 Cadillac: Land Yacht episode as the #1 viewed video in the series and it's still gaining popularity.
So, is the season over? We hope not! We were able to get some volunteers that would like to be slipped in before the end of the year and we're going to make an attempt at giving them a swing, which one is very special so I don't want to spoil it.
So stay tuned for more episodes of What It's Like to Drive and for the coming announcement of Season 2 in 2020! But wait, there's more! We have been dying to give you what you want so 2 more shows are absolutely in the works! We'll have those hashed out well before the end of the year as well.
Here's to a great year. Thank you guys for watching and thank you for sharing our passion, and yours, on our channel, here at AggressiveDesign.Net

If there was any drive event we were looking forward to, it's driving this piece of history! This is the first year of the Camaro and this particular RS/SS was the king of the crop at the time. It's automatic and made to cruise. We find out what that means and how it drives and it's an incredible experience that we're happy to share! Check it out!

We're actually featured in many videos, but the goal of our organization is to give you options to watch all the cool channels, so if they'll give us air time we would certainly be happy to return the favor!

Few car shows really wow me, especially when they're small. So when a little car show ends up being a unique and big deal I have to share. The Somerset Car Show will not wow you in attendance. Nobody will feature it on their big event pages, but you'll experience more here than 90% of the other shows you go to. No kidding. A live band, unique displays, vendors, a water front view, not to mention the retro ladies in vintage gear walking around, just to name a few. This little car show just seems to pull it all in and for that reason we want to share it with you. Don't forget to hang out to the end for a very special green monster at the end.
It's happened to all of us. You're ready for the big cruise and something happens to put you out of commission. What do you do when it happens on the cruise! Well, if it's an old car you get three guys to fix it in 15 minutes! Watch as we have a great event and show how car community come together to make a possibly catastrophic problem an easy fix all while supporting a great cause.
As I was coming back from another show I stumbled upon the closing of the Wheels of Time show and I was impressed with what I saw. Cars straight out of time that I hadn't encountered before. So here's a great review of the event as well as some awesome exhaust sounds.
Hot Rods on the Hill 2019
The Creeps CC always put on a great show and today's show is no exception! We loved going and here's some great vehicles to check out that are creative and pre-'70s! Hope you'll love it as much as we do!
It's been a long time since I covered HIN and just like they have roots that run deep in the import scene, I too have some pretty deep roots in HIN, so when the offer to cover the event arose once more I was quick to pack up the equipment and head out! What we found was an amazing event full of vibrant cars and even more radiant personalities. Everyone was super friendly and the DJ played the entire time. From unveilings to great product displays, it really was hard to soak up everything the show had to offer, but soak it up we did until we were completely saturated. With full camera in hand we returned to home base. Here's our quick rundown of the event. Hope you enjoy!
