Video Car Culture Has Changed: 2012 vs 2022 (Part 2)

Video ✅ Car Culture arguably saved me from a lifetime of no direction. It gave me a sense of community, purpose, and goals in life. However in the past ten years the car culture of 2012 is long gone and 2022 is almost unrecognizable… for better or for worse. Let’s take a look back and see what’s changed over the past decade in car culture. This is part 2 concluding this series for now! ✅ Car Culture Has Changed: 2012 vs 2022 (Part 2)

0:00
I released a video a few days ago called
0:02
car culture has changed 2012 versus
0:04
2022. it actually seemed to resonate
0:06
with a lot of people and was really
0:08
great but oh man oh man I made some
0:10
people angry because the people who did
0:13
say very mean things in the comment
0:15
section below kind of misinterpreted
0:17
some of the things I said and in this
0:19
video I Decided why not go a little bit
0:21
deeper into some of the subject matters
0:23
that I talked about and really what I
0:26
meant rather than kind of breezing
0:27
through them so this is a part two of
0:30
car culture 2012 versus 2022.

evolve Bank and Trust member FDIC so I
1:55
kind of wanted to go through my last
1:56
video and make some things clear about
1:58
the scene that was different but maybe
2:00
needed a little more context or
2:02
understanding
2:07
in my early career my main mission
2:10
statement of this YouTube channel was to
2:12
make this channel the most open-minded
2:14
car community on the internet this was
2:17
also due to my really rough experiences
2:19
on forums back in the day where I just
2:21
wanted to ask a question and God called
2:23
horrible things in return but I was also
2:25
still very young and of course my skin
2:28
hadn’t been hardened yet of course that
2:31
was gonna affect me I took a lot of that
2:33
to heart and that’s just human nature
2:35
especially since a lot of us have not
2:37
trained ourselves yet into how to react
2:40
to social media and how not to take
2:42
things so close to home so basically I
2:44
had this message that everybody in that
2:46
dude in blue is welcome they’re
2:49
completely welcome you have no problem
2:50
if you want to show up in a clapped out
2:52
piece of junk car as long as you’re a
2:54
cool dude no problem you’re fine with
2:57
that statement I found that I shouldn’t
2:59
have to explain myself all too much that
3:02
being more simple was effective and I
3:05
think the whole respect all builds thing
3:06
was more about the people themselves
3:08
than the cars but it was mostly the
3:10
people that had really awful cars and
3:14
taste and a bad attitude or they would
3:17
say things in utter confidence about a
3:20
fact about a car or some platform that
3:22
was completely wrong and you couldn’t
3:25
convince them otherwise right for
3:27
example guy pulls up and a new Edge V6
3:29
Mustang that’s clapped out and says oh
3:31
yeah I didn’t need the V8 because the V6
3:33
is faster true story are you really
3:37
going to have a first impression respect
3:40
of somebody who says something so
3:42
blatantly untrue and unfactual and they
3:45
just keep being in denial of course not
3:47
of course not number one I stated you
3:50
could buy something like a 240SX for
3:52
under a thousand dollars for the most
3:54
part the 240SX was considered an old JDM
3:57
car that was kind of a relic and a
4:00
novelty in a way as a drift car or just
4:03
a fun project to mess with and they were
4:06
really cheap cheap I mean really cheap
4:08
the car was revered but not five
4:11
thousand dollars for a shell on Facebook
4:13
Marketplace for full transparency my 2JZ
4:17
s13 project when I first bought it down
4:19
here in Georgia it was around a thousand
4:22
bucks but it had a blown head gasket and
4:24
had rust underneath so I should have
4:27
paid less obviously that was considered
4:30
a lot for a shell a bunch of my friends
4:33
who had s chassis cars started with
4:35
240SX s13s that they paid 500 600 bucks
4:39
for a full running and driving car did
4:43
it probably have issues
4:45
yeah it’s a it’s an s13 but at the same
4:48
time they could still get from point A
4:50
to point B A lot of the times Hondas
4:51
were the exact same way crx’s EG hatches
4:55
they weren’t really considered collector
4:56
items either a B series engine I
4:59
remember a friend buying one for like
5:01
600 bucks a GSR motor now is in the
5:05
thousands so many times have changed in
5:08
that way but it’s pretty clear-cut
5:10
number two you needed an in or an invite
5:13
to go to nighttime car meets or you just
5:15
showed up on your own alright so this is
5:17
one of the biggest points I wanted to
5:19
clarify on where I was accused of
5:21
gatekeeping and no I think gatekeeping
5:24
is overall pretty dumb it’s like going
5:27
to a music concert for a metal band and
5:30
some dude wearing some edgy t-shirt
5:33
being like yeah you’re not like a real
5:35
middle fan if you like listen to
5:36
Metallica and not post hardcore like
5:39
that kind of crap validating your own
5:41
taste and saying that other people
5:43
aren’t allowed to have your thing that
5:46
is what gatekeeping is to me it’s
5:48
useless hate basically for no reason
5:51
other than you’ve taken something and
5:54
made it your entire identity so nobody
5:57
else is allowed to happen which is dumb
5:59
don’t do that don’t make something your
6:01
entire identity that does make me sound
6:03
kind of hypocritical because my entire
6:04
life is around cars
6:07
but that’s not David right I don’t go
6:09
like I’m the car guy from YouTube I love
6:12
filming cars it’s a passion of mine am I
6:15
okay on days without talking about cars
6:18
yeah I’m I’m totally fine with it I
6:20
mostly meant it was hard to find these
6:23
places and as an after effect the
6:26
quality of people was overall pretty
6:28
good because they really wanted to stand
6:31
in a parking lot and chit chat with
6:33
other enthusiasts and they had to really
6:35
dig into the internet or the local scene
6:38
to find these spots you had to be
6:40
proactive to really find them so if you
6:43
compare that now to where on Facebook or
6:46
wherever it’s a lot more accessible
6:48
which is Amazing by the way but that
6:51
also means like naturally you get more
6:52
bad apples it is what it is you know
6:55
it’s not one of those things where I’m
6:56
like 2012 is 100 better blah blah it is
7:00
what it is more donut having idiots in
7:02
the wrong setting makes the culture look
7:04
worse than it is like cops in Virginia
7:06
at one point when we ran nighttime car
7:09
meets in Virginia
7:11
would come hang out with us like they
7:13
would park see that we weren’t up to no
7:16
good get out of their patrol car and
7:19
literally get to know each other and
7:21
that was really neat because those cops
7:23
that would keep coming back and I’m not
7:25
saying they all would do this because
7:27
they wouldn’t it’d be like 50 50 right
7:29
you’d get like two cops that were having
7:31
a bad day and showed me like ah a bunch
7:33
of hooligans these guys suck or the cops
7:35
would get up be like oh what’s up
7:36
officer so and so it’s awesome to see
7:38
you again they would keep the peace if
7:41
you weren’t up to no good if you weren’t
7:42
going out racing or whatever it was
7:44
usually the racing happened miles and
7:47
miles and miles away if that did happen
7:49
and but two they kept the peace it kept
7:53
the idiots out basically if you had a
7:55
bad intention to come to a car meet to
7:57
show off for the wrong reason you know
7:59
like doing donuts and a lot and ruining
8:01
it for everybody that was not going to
8:03
happen if they were there so it was this
8:06
weird kind of 50 50 Presence at the time
8:08
however there was a story where
8:11
I’ve told on this channel before where
8:14
the police knocked on my friend’s door
8:16
and asked if I was a street racing
8:18
Kingpin so hard flex but sorry no I was
8:21
not that guy I literally organized a
8:24
nighttime car meet with four other
8:25
friends and we cleaned up the trash
8:27
afterwards that’s what we did so there
8:30
you go was there gatekeeping in the same
8:32
way if we think of the word gatekeeping
8:34
today
8:36
no it was you weren’t welcome back
8:39
if you were an idiot it was clean cut
8:42
it’s like somebody getting banned from
8:44
like a local establishment or small
8:46
business when they cause a scene and
8:47
they’re not allowed back so if you
8:49
viewed your nighttime car meet and say
8:50
I’m the manager and you come cause a
8:52
scene and like get in a fist fight or
8:54
whatever you’re not gonna allow that
8:55
customer back why would you it’s the
8:57
same exact way and so it’s much harder
8:59
to weed that type of person out now
9:01
because there’s so many people who come
9:04
to car meets now that’s a big win for
9:07
car culture it’d be absolutely Clear Car
9:09
friendships were a tight-knit community
9:11
in 2012 but not in 22. this is not what
9:15
I meant at all uh if it came off that
9:17
way what I admit is since you knew
9:19
people in this small community you
9:21
tended to bond with these people more in
9:22
person more often if you have any sort
9:25
of social media presence whatsoever big
9:28
or small you don’t always know who is
9:31
being your friend for your social media
9:33
presence or you have a cool car or
9:37
actually to be your friend so that is
9:39
just another thing that I just wanted to
9:41
clarify find that that wasn’t ever an
9:44
afterthought or an issue back in the day
9:47
because social media just didn’t have an
9:49
importance as much back then so real
9:52
quick one very short and sweet no who
9:54
your real friends are great I don’t know
9:57
why I did that I don’t know takeovers
10:00
aren’t dumb and you just don’t get it my
10:03
personal favorite sideshows have been
10:05
around forever and as far as I know this
10:07
all kind of started in the Bay area of
10:09
California decades ago and I would never
10:12
justify them
10:14
but you thought I was gonna totally
10:17
defend them did you no no of course not
10:19
back then it probably was really hard to
10:22
find somewhere to legitimately Hoon
10:25
around in your car and I don’t mean like
10:27
going to the drag strip or an autocross
10:29
or whatever I mean like
10:31
you know intentionally hunting like
10:33
doing burnouts doing donuts and stuff
10:34
that was probably hard to find but even
10:37
back when drifting wasn’t accessible the
10:40
move was to find like an industrial area
10:43
or Warehouse in the middle of nowhere so
10:46
you weren’t seen so that is the major
10:49
difference I’m much more on the side of
10:51
the people who do that rather than
10:54
you know public intersections maybe
10:56
blocking an ambulance with somebody in
10:58
the back of it maybe in critical
11:00
condition and they can’t make it to the
11:02
hospital because your stupid cute little
11:04
takeover is blocking lives being saved
11:06
that’s a scenario that drives me insane
11:08
because it has happened in the past and
11:11
I think that’s when a lot of people are
11:12
like yo this stuff has to like this is
11:15
insane but now if we go to 2022 drifting
11:18
drift schools academies so many things
11:21
are accessible now that there isn’t an
11:23
excuse I had a debate with a uh how do
11:26
you say it um take over attendee I guess
11:30
basically his main point was but I can’t
11:33
afford to go to the track I can’t go but
11:36
here in Georgia
11:38
what are you talking about you can go to
11:41
caffeine octane linear Raceway which is
11:43
just North of Atlanta you can pay 99
11:45
bucks every other Friday so it’s it’s
11:48
happening all the time you can go there
11:51
and get as many laps as you want you can
11:52
do as many dumb things as you want you
11:54
can do 360 exits or entries like
11:57
whatever you want to do you can do it
11:59
there you can do figure eights to
12:01
practice your skill they have a figure
12:03
eight section they have all these things
12:05
and this is a pretty common format in a
12:07
lot of parts of the country but I’m
12:09
using Atlanta as an example because this
12:11
is the area I live in so the argument is
12:13
money look everybody is in a different
12:16
financial situation I completely
12:18
understand that but I’m going to say
12:20
this in a way that isn’t super mean but
12:24
more educational so hear me out here if
12:27
you can’t afford to go to a 99 drift
12:30
event have fun getting your car
12:32
impounded getting a reckless driving
12:34
ticket losing your license so now you
12:36
can’t go to work or get there without
12:39
paying for an Uber every day or a family
12:42
member taking you or a friend taking you
12:43
every day and you don’t want to put that
12:45
responsibility on someone you’re
12:47
probably a grown adult by now in most
12:48
reckless driving tickets if you can’t
12:51
get a lawyer typically in Most states
12:53
like a five thousand dollar fine plus
12:55
the court fees plus if you know plus a
12:58
lawyer fee if you somehow get one five
13:01
thousand plus dollars plus your car’s
13:04
gone and transportation’s gone all
13:06
because you didn’t want to take the time
13:08
to go to a 99 drift event like 40
13:11
minutes away oh yeah also by the way
13:13
shooting lasers at a police helicopter
13:16
while you’re doing a takeover is a
13:17
felony so don’t do that either so
13:20
basically your life is on hold if you go
13:23
to a takeover and you get arrested and
13:25
yes Spectators do get arrested too my
13:27
point is you want to go through all that
13:29
all that heartache
13:31
to avoid a 99 day which yes you’re still
13:34
gonna spend money on tires you’re so
13:36
gonna spend money on fluids and pads and
13:38
all that stuff but you’re still doing
13:40
the same thing you’re still being an
13:42
idiot on track in a fun way without
13:44
worrying about a helicopter following
13:46
you around at the end of the day it’s
13:48
education a lot of people who go to
13:49
these events do not know about these
13:52
facilities that they can go to so
13:55
they’re just very enamored in this one
13:57
scene and they’re like this is the way
13:58
it is and we don’t have any options but
14:02
they don’t have anybody to tell them a
14:04
lot of the times and it’s like hey man
14:05
like if you want to do it the right way
14:07
try this give it a chance and a lot of
14:10
the Takeover kids here in Atlanta
14:12
started coming to Lanier and they’re
14:14
like holy smokes like this is great and
14:17
it’s really cool to see the change that
14:20
can happen if the effort is put forward
14:22
anyway we’ve talked about this enough I
14:25
don’t think I want to talk about this
14:26
anytime soon again okay we’re good but
14:29
anyway I thought this was just a nice
14:31
video to clarify by what I meant in the
14:33
last video dig a little bit deeper some
14:35
other opinions kind of rebuttal some of
14:37
the comments down below just for fun and
14:40
along with that I upload on Tuesdays
