Excellent!! I saw their little blurb about talking to some owners and a small pic of a Locost, but had no idea it was anyone on here. I will try to watch it.

Got stage fright, or has it already been filmed?

It has already been filmed we did it at the ProSolo in Ft Meyers, (we were supposed to do a little more at the Dixie tour but my car broke and I ended up driving the Jeep). I spent about 10 minute talking about Scrap metal, it was totally unscripted so just me waffling on about the car. I think he also took some shots of me driving, but we were in the same run group so it was tough.

Not sure how it turned out as I have not seen it. He said it flowed well and I enjoyed doing it. Obviously I am not an actor and it is just me talking rather than an interview or questions. I look forward to seeing how it came out, I'm also really proud about getting recognition for the car that I built.

I'm going to try to watch this one, sounds fun. I'm sure you did fine. I've been on camera a couple times with local tv crews with my car, and it's definitely weird. Both times they managed to edit it so I didn't come of as a complete moron though.

That was cool, right on. It was the first one of these that I've watched, I'll have to make a habit of it maybe. For some reason I hadn't realized or had forgotten you were from England, so the accent threw me off a bit. JG talking about you giving a ton of info wasn't wrong, cool to hear people so enthusiastic about their cars. I'm sure most people's eyes glaze over right away when I start telling them about mine, but I really like the little detail stuff like that.

Thanks, I thought I did really well in the video. He edited the photos in a slightly changed the order of things and I think he did a great job. I think my wife is happy I got everything about the car off my chest, so she does not have to listen to it all the time.

I'm originally from the UK but have been in the states for about 10 years. It's funny how get to know people on a forum and when you meet them in real life or see a video in this case they seem different to how you imagined them and it changes the way you see that person.

Great job Paul!

I liked how you told everyone that you regularly cut up the car and
change things!

Yes the car is my Prototype of nothing. Constantly making changes to go faster.
