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
