If You Go On A Road Trip With Hoovie's Garage, Don't Expect To Make It...

I drive a Mercedes SL600, break it, then trade it for a Ferrari 360 Spider. Also we get to witness a break-in in progress. A lot happens!

In this epic video, I document my experience from the trip to put break-in miles on the @Hoovies Garage Lamborghini Murcielago. @Car Wizard is along for the trip as well driving Tyler's Lamborghini Gallardo. Magic Mike was driving Hoovie's Aston Martin Rapide, and Rob (the guy who sold Tyler the Alpina B7) was driving his new Aston Martin DB9. Unfortunately, it was a one-way trip for the car I drove, but it meant I got to spend some quality time with the Car Ninja in the Car Trek Ferrari on the way back.

    Oh, how I absolutely hate the "jump into the picture"-entry. Hoovie does it too with some funny walk. Why not just enter the scene and present the video? Perhaps it's an American thing where talk show hosts act like Stephen Balmer at every show start?

      Newer convertibles like this have the windshield extend a healthy amount above the occupant’s head. So it doesn’t make hats fly off like in older cars.

      @Elliott Alvis I have mild autism, and it makes me an excellent engineer (my day job), and causes me to obsess over details. I know the torque spec of every bit and bolt in a Model A (not joking). However, I wouldn't know where to start if the new Jeep I bought my wife were to burp. I'm more confident driving a Model A every day because I know everything about it. Very self-sufficient. But in a supercar, I would have to tow it to a mechanic if it broke and write a big check! I respect the super cars very much, but still don't think I want to own one. Maybe I should borrow or rent one sometime and see. But for now, I'm content with a shop full of antique cars and their parts and money in the bank! Ha ha!

    Elliott: I find it hard to watch your videos when you're filming outdoors. Something about wind noise on the mic combined with your audio mix makes my home theater subwoofer rumble like crazy. Makes it sound there's a thunderstorm going on outside. Scenes filmed indoors sound good and so do timelapse stuff with a music backtrack sound good too. Otherwise I like your content! Have fun.

    it was OBVIOUSLY over heating if smoke is coming in the car, you thought that was the car “venting itself” like are you kidding me?! Then continues to push it knowing it’s smoking while all the coolant leaking and the engine getting bone dry that’s why it smoked even more, if he would of pulled over immediately when the first smoke happened regardless of the temperature, tried to put coolant or water in, you would see there’s a big leak and can’t be driven like that. But instead wanted to be a cool and drive it to the end till the engine got bone dry. Smfh you really damaged his car u drove it with no coolant after u realized the first time it smoked; regardless of water the temperature gage said, SMOKE IS NO GOOD. Should of called hoodie and let him know what was up, but instead ruined it Johnny saying it’s an easy fix just to keep goodn spirit . But you my friend overheated his engine the whole time driving it to the destination with that big coolant leak. Blasting the A/C. Smfh

      bellevue260 it can be! But I’ve done the Great Race (cross country vintage car rally) twice in a 1954 corvette with no top. So having the windows up and the wind blocker on this SL with the top down was a lot more comfortable than that lol.

    Coolant warning, steam pouring out, temperature pegged, and you kept driving it? I was screaming STOP NOW at the screen. I'm thinking a cylinder head gasket job on a V12 Mercedes can't be cheap.

      The temp pegged for less than 10 seconds and went back to normal. I thought it just had air in the system. It only pegged at the end because the car was off and the remaining coolant got super hot because it wasn’t flowing anymore.

    If you were a real boomer you'd be old enough to interpret what the car is telling you. It's losing coolant. Not that big a deal if you can keep it full, but a major deal if it runs too low. Aluminum motors don't like being overheated. You'll be lucky if the head gaskets don't go. I'm not loaning you any of my cars. lol

    • Elliott Alvis

      I knew what it was telling me. But it didn’t make it seem like an emergency. It just said “top up” not that it was losing it at an alarming rate. I kept an eye on the temp gauge and it was fine right up until the end.

      There wasn’t another stop. If I had stopped anywhere before where I did, that car would’ve been in the weeds. Also the warning said “top up” as if it was a little low. I didn’t drive it like that for very long.
