    Save 25 minutes and read this. Pay taxes or (invest in your business) buy vehicles. It’s business. And a tax game with the IRS.

      You factor selling the cars to rationalize a profit, but then explain how you have so much into them it would actually be a loss...have you sold any of them at all? How do you make money when you arent selling them as you explained in the beginning?

        I learned how stupid it is to buy a car at a young age, I bought a 2002 M5 Brand new when i picked it up from the dealership it had 3 miles on it. I went to swing past my business partners house to take him for a spin and he said when we get into the office on monday im gonna make you mad. So on monday morning he comes into my office pulls up Kelly Blue Book on my PC and proceeds to show me that i lost 7K just by driving the car off the lot,i only put 98 miles on the car over the weekend so the milage was 101 and the car was worth 7K less than i paid. Cars are the biggest depreciating asset you could ever waste money on.

              I'm a YouTube red member. Does that mean you don't make any money when I watch since I have no ads?

                Adam - when you're sitting down and are stationary with respect to the camera, turn off its auto-focus. Go back and look at around 22:00 the autofocus is hunting between your face and the Michelin stamp on the left-front of the GT3 RS. Set the focus, check it, and turn off auto-focus for stationary shots. Otherwise our visual interest is stolen.

                  Really interesting breakdown. I think you may not have to pay any taxes though on your endeavor. Im not sure how your relationship with youtube works. But if they basically subcontract with you then I think it creates an interesting situation. Because making these videos is your business then you should be able to write off all your expenses for said video or "series". You purchased the car for $57,000, but it only generated you $48,000. This is a net loss of $9,000 plus what ever other production costs you may have. Then, when you file for taxes you should technically have a net loss of $9k. When you sell a car for less than you purchased it for, you dont owe any taxes, only the buyer does(this is another issue i wont get into lol). So, I dont think you owe any taxes in this one instance. Obviously you need to do this on a larger scale with all your videos and figure your costs vs revenue in total. But dont pay more taxes than you need to! Id be interested to hear back from anyone that may know better than me lol, im not a CPA.

                      Wait a second. You are making at least 9,000 (this far) off this video talking about the mustang. Add that to the list. Lol plus now new viewers will go watch more videos because of this video about the mustang and give you more views on other cars. Plus all the mustang videos got you views of other videos. It’s never ending-keeps going and going . Lol And your slick , during this video you talked about other cars and content so people will go watch those. Oh and you talked about the future of the channel so to keep views coming from this basically mustang profit video. And that’s why you’re doing so well . It’s impossible to figure out the chain reaction revenue from any of these videos or cars. Keep up it bro

                                              Thanks man, I wasn’t sure of the exact breakdown, I assumed probably 90% correct but I appreciate you taking the time and effort to explain this from someone that actually lives it. From the outside it looks like the ultimate lifestyle when in reality it’s actually better! LOL. I would assume it’s not all sunshine and rainbows but still a pretty extraordinary opportunity. Well done, I love the channel, always entertaining and engaging. Cheers mate✌🏻

                                                            Thank you for explaining this in such the way you have. You've put a lot of sense into you You Tubers buy lots of cars. very simply put, you have lots of equity. I guess this also means that just in case your channel were to flop for whatever reason you'd still be fine because you kinda have a whole bunch of money laying around in your garage.
