    The white TR from BAT finally sold.
    83k to hoovies garage.
    Good deal in my opinion. Lets hope he has no issues.
    Parnelli offered 90k but i guess 83+ youtube exposure was better for Mr Wonder;)

    The 140k figure comes from its original asking price which eventually got lowered over the past 2 years before the car sells.

    I will
    Be curious to see how long hoovies keeps it;)

    Be happy, if it did not sell for 2 friggin years, there are issues. Find a decent car pay the money and go enjoy it.

    Wow - way too much money for that car in my opinion.

    Either way I hope he enjoys it. I love white but those wheels have to go.

    Those wheels wouldnt look so bad if they were silver instead of polished. Are they 16”? The sidewall looks a bit large for them to be 17s

    Ha...cool and fun video! I love his surprise at the hard steering wheel and the look of fear on his face when he was shifting gears lol

    A Testarossa is for men....girlymen need not apply.

    Anyone notice that the car has been painted? The door jambs should be black...not body painted in white.

    I tell ya, every time I get bored with the car, a video like this makes me realize why I still keep it.

    The all gear thing in my experience really can be different from one car to another.
    Mine was easy even cold, although i would do 1-3 for 10 minutes, then it was perfect, and clutch pedal was smooth.
    Some cars i test drove literally i was sore with the pedal and 2nd would not engage...i was told oil can be crucial.
    All and all i think he got a decent deal on this car. It was previously sold at auction i think for 50k or so in 2011 ...
    Is it the cheapest? Not sure as there is one on autotrader for 79k but hey that line gets him views.

    What stuns me is that i know for a fact hoovies got financing on that car+80k loan on his phantom which begs the questiom on how they get so many loans So easily...i am assuming he has a day job too?

    Hoovies father is a realestate and restaurant franchiser for Taco Bell and Freddy’s Frozen Custard. Hoovies works in the Freddy’s department opening stores and does have a “day job.” He has buying power and could have it figured a 100 different ways. He has a successful YouTube channel and just did a new show that is coming soon. He had buying power from the production company. He has some sponsor dollars as well with things he flouts on the YouTube channel. I bet the family business pays him $10k a month?? Has a fairly new 6.2 Denali Pickup as well and probably insurance. He could be generating another $10k a month in outside revenue? His cash on hand is probably tied up in cars which may hurt liquidity a little bit, but he has access to cash.

    He shoots video in front of his home - I have zillowed it. He also shoot video in front of his folks home. Both are nice and the folks is damn nice. They also have a family cabin. Pretty much established money from the fam. Involved in the community and from my googling months ago, the family business is very, very healthy.

    So buying and selling cars, generating YouTube buzz and creative financing are pretty easy for him in my opinion based on a public research. I could be completely wrong, but I had similar questions and went searching one day.

    I will add, I have 13+ vehicles which are as eclectic as Hoovie’s and he stole my complete persona and monetized it, before I could

    Makes sense! Doesnt take away his channel quality and that he is friendly. Much more than vehicle virgins for instance to me. I was wondering how the banks were lending that much. I know some you tubers with 300k followers and that doesnt give them that much every month; maybe 3k tops...
    I like seen trough glass seems like that kid is properly self made, demuro annoys me but also seems self made;)

    Unsurprisingly the car had issues.

    That being said the testarossa rumble at idle is totally normal...
