    I like some of the themes you brought up and I think the best portion of your video was towards the end, where you mentioned there is no magic way to get there.

    You did mention that the viewer may not even own a car, which I think is something you could add on. The "exotic" to your viewer may just be a mid priced car and for them it is a special experience. The credit score numbers you mentioned were a good start with loads of room to expand. Although financial topics can draw out a video. I think you are very approachable and have a fun personality on camera.

    We did have a recent discussion about income/networth ratio https://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/threads/ideal-supercar-expense-income-net-worth-ratio.621895/

    I found the video itself very hard to watch, I didn't like the shakiness of the camera when you were in the car or walking around. Nor did I enjoy the random cuts of full screen photos/videos of the cars you mentioned. I do like that a lot of your videos feature the beautiful community where you live, maybe just have a simple static camera sit down on the ground or at a table? If you want a good example of this, watch former F1 mechanic Marc Priestley's videos https://www.youtube.com/user/F1Elvis

    I'm sure to the guy moving from a 1990 Escort to a Civic probably thinks it's pretty exotic :rolleyes:

    I believe everyones definition of an exotic is different. From my experience no one needs a car that costs over 50k, they want a car that costs over 50K. My dogs transport (a Jeep Grand Cherokee) stickered for 47K new, and it will get me to the same place at around the same time as any of my Ferrari's would have. It smells worse on the inside but in reality who would ever need anything more. Want, well that is a complicated question for you normal brained emotionally driven people. I came to realize that cars like my Abarth, 4C, Miata, and my Porsche's are better suited to me than any of the Ferrari's I owned. Why, because those I take apart, and that is the key, to me no car you can buy off the shelf is an exotic, what I turn them into, in my mind that is an exotic, because no one else will own one like it. Maybe I should start a video series, the road to 500 cars, or what a long strange drive its been.
