Porsche would charge $32,000 for "999 Everything Delete" option.

What's "funny" is in his next video release he rails for 11 min about how the drug dealer Chen in NYC and the latest Cannonball Run record holders are giving exotic car owners a bad reputation with their bad driving displays. Yet it's OK for Casey to drive around like an idiot doing donuts in this video. I guess it's "do as I say, not as I do". Wreaks of hypocrisy to me.

I watch his videos but am not a subscriber because he recently has had a lot of Porsche content (944, 928, 987), but generally they only contain 50% of usable content and the other 50% is him blithering endlessly about something. I guess he has to have a certain length video on YT to get paid and his rants are filler to get to the magic money length. His video about changing a timing belt on a 944 by memory & w/o following directions was frustrating when he constantly had to go back and redo something b/c it was wrong. Luckily he didn't ruin the 944.

This project where he's de-contenting a 987 to use it as the underpinnings of another car is typical Casey. I don't mind him stripping a 987, I just wish he hadn't sacrificed such a nice example. With all the cars running thru COPART, I'd venture he could have found one with some light damage to the panels he was going to remove anyways and had the same finished product. He's taken what looks like a nice Boxster out of commission. Kind of a shame in my estimation. But he said in an earlier video about the 987 that he chose a nice one on purpose - probably to anger Porsche purists so they'll complain in their forums and generate more clicks to his videos. Mission accomplished.

I enjoy Hoovie's Garage, WatchJRGo, and Sarah-n-Tuned much more.

OK, 'get off my lawn' guy has spoken. Happy Easter to everyone!

I hope he still has a career as a pro driverl. "No front", but some people really try hard to be funny and you can tell, it will never happen. It is just not in their genes, I guess.
