          I'm 1/3rd of the way through and if he sells the car, he has to pay taxes on the net profit. If he keeps the car it's considered a business deduction and he effectively pays no taxes on that $43k he got from youtube videos. If he keeps buying cars and not selling them, until he's owned them for 5 years, he gets to have his cake and eat it too. By the time he's had the car for 5 years it is depreciated as a business asset and the resell value is much lower. At some point he has to turn a profit, but it benefits him to continue buying new car stock to feed his channel, to offset the revenue he's getting from the videos. He gets to take the full purchase price as a business deduction, even as the car depreciates -- think about that, he gets to deduct (not pay taxes) on the original purchase price of the vehicle, even when the vehicle is depreciating in value as he owns it. He can then resell the vehicle and he only has to pay taxes on the money he made above the original purchase price.

                          24? sigh. I'm here working 9-12 hour days, 7 days a week for the last 15 years and I can afford 1 car, and no not a new car... a 90's car. Almost 40 and If I sold everything I own I still will not be able to buy a Porsche GT3.
                          I should have vlogged.

                                          You should do a video about getting started. What has worked well and what doesn't work. My daughter much like a lot of kids these days want to be YouTubers. Nice cars by the way! As a car guy myself I am impressed by your collection. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

                                                2 years insurance at 2000$! That's just 85 bucks a month. That's amazing. Out here in Ontario Canada average rates are around 250-400$ per month.

                                                  Since YouTube would be your job and yourself self employed, it’d be like an LLC wouldn’t it? At that point your business expenses, food, traveling, cars, etc would be a tax write off. There for buying the GT350 for an example would of been a tax write off wouldn’t it?

So when he said it’s costed 57k, he really means he’s made 57k, by writing off the mods and maintenance on the car, which probably goes for most of his vehicles
