I hadn't checked the thread in a while, and didn't realize it lived! That's awesome, and it looks fantastic!

And not to over-focus on the threads, but the Bitchin' Camaro combo pack shirts; c'est magnifique.

Yeah, love the simple Bitchin' T-shirt.

Thanks for making this video, taking the time to edit around my costume changes, and being a fantastic home for this build.  You all are the best!

 

As far as my "Bitchin'" shirt, it was a gift from a friend.  https://www.amazon.com/Superluxe-Clothing-Bitchin-Vintage-T-Shirt/dp/B0778P9VJV

Thanks for making it fun. Maybe the coolest part for me was the realization that our video feature cars are developing enough of their own personality that our subjects are finding ways to have fun within the existing structure. Stuff like that is what separates a boring talking head video from an integral piece of our shared culture. It's cool to see folks embracing the new stuff we're doing.

Also, someone on the GRM staff might have shared this video with someone in the Dead Milkmen. The reply: SWEET!
