Have a mate who owns a Cayman and this made it over to their forums as well. The car was actually built by one of the forum founders and was sold to that current owner with a lot of goodies, including that 911 front end conversion. To make things worse I believe the insurance company is not going to pay the owner for all the custom work, so he's about to lose a good amount of $$$.

That's a tip for everyone. Modification are covered under accessory coverage. It doesn't take much to exceed to standard coverage if you have any at all. Also you need documentation for the work.

I am subscribed to a guy that showcases his Corvette Z06. He has over 400,000 subscribers. He has posted how much he makes per month, it's a third of his yearly income, and he is a financial analyst. Youtube pays him $15k a month! But again, you need a lot of subscribers. And he's 23.

Damn, that's some good coin! At the end of the day it's mostly from advertising, so more subs = more views and the ads reach more people.

What a shit position to be put in by a reckless rider.

I really feel for the Porsche owner. I hope he gets a settlement.

What gets me the most is the seeming lack of remorse from Yamminoob. His video following the crash doesn't offer a single apology to the Porsche driver, only blame for "cold tires" and "gravel" or a "boulder" in the road. Even if it truly wasn't his fault in the slightest (and there's a lot of doubt in that statement) the least he could do was offer some condolences to the driver for the accident. Instead he goes on to talk about himself and his channel as if this is really isn't a bad thing at all.

You know screw the gofundme. He needs a gofundahitman. Yamminoob needs a good ass whipping.
