Watching Our FIRST YouTube video (Uploaded 13 years ago)

It was exactly 13 years ago that we uploaded our first episode of Mighty Car Mods... (even though it wasn't called that when we filmed it) So we decided to watch it again on our 13th birthday and bring you along for the ride.
Exactly 13 years ago today, we uploaded our first episode of Mighty Car Mods. We never knew it would take us on an amazing journey into the lives of millions of people and send us traveling on automotive adventures all over the world.
From a driveway in suburban Sydney, we ended up on the streets of Cuba, the car department of Fast&Furious, the mountains of Japan, the desert in Abu Dhabi, the forests of Slovenia, the outback of Australia, the Autobahn in Germany, and many more incredible places.
Eventually our show even hit “real” TV on the Discovery Channel - broadcast into millions of homes around the world on TV - it was at this point that many people said we “made it” - yet to “make it” seems like a final destination and we feel like we’re only just getting started.
It really has been an amazing ride so far and we quite literally could not have done it for this long without you!
We’d like to thank all of you that have been watching and supporting the show, whether it’s been 13 weeks or 13 years and we’d also like the acknowledge the MCM fans, and the families of those that we’ve lost along the way.
In this special episode we go back to the beginning to watch the first episode and explain how it started and reveal what the show was called (it wasn’t called Mighty Car Mods when we filmed it... that name came later as you’ll see)
So let’s go back to the very beginning - that early day on the 7th of January, 2008 and check out the first episode of “MIghty Car Mods

I watched shit loads of your back catalogue and am glad to see the essence of mighty mods has not been diluted, but actually become more concentrated. Enjoy your time off dudes, looking forward to seeing what you get up to this year

    been watching yall from the start. I was building a 1994 civic sedan. did a d16y7 engine block with a d16y7 engine head. put Eagle rods & wiseco forged pistons in it, and boosted it. your channel was climbing at the time, and the car scenes everywhere were blowing up. you guys made the videos during the time where cars became super trendy. its weird how enjoyable this all was back then. I used to get hyped for your videos, stay up way too late at night watching them even tho I had work and school the next day. now I'm suicidal and don't give a shit about anything ;D wheres the time go, lads.

    That pic of the two little cars with the red one being the Daihatsu is interesting as Daihatsu during that time was in partnership with a Malaysian Government sponsored initiative to build the nation's second national car under a company call Perodua. The model that was based on the red Daihatsu was called the Kelisa locally and has since become a cult favourite now after going out of production in favour of newer models. I'm quite surprised that Daihatsu sold this model over in Australia. Happy 13th Years of wonderful distraction for me and I look forward to another 13 or more from you guys! Cheers.

    Australia has had a history of taxing is citizens to death and restricting freedoms. They sell "petrol" by the litre, which is retarded. The only thing to be sold by the litre should be soda, But I digress, if I had to pay $2 for a litre of gas I'd want a rice burner as well. But here in Freedom land we sell one unit of gas we call a Gallon which converts to 3.78 of your litre's. We pay 2$ per 3.78 Litrees'

    Been with you guys since the TRD Laser. Loved your format from the very start, and always had a soft spot for the silly stuff, cause that's what I saw first. Been randomly thinking it would be hilarious to see you do a train style AWD conversion with coupling rods on some POS nugget. Don't know if anyone's done it before, would making steering impossible... but would be good for a laugh.

    My favorite moment of bonding over MCM was when I've had a serious work meeting over Zoom with people from other companies and different continents. I was wearing an MCM hoodie to the office that day and then there is a guy starting the meeting by saying "So, I want to start by a huge shout out to Marty and Moog". We chatted about the latest video for a bit and then moved on to the topic with a light heart. Happy birthday guys, love what you're doing!

I hope you keep going but even I know it’s probably getting tiring to come up with content, but you’ve reached the point of the original top gear trio. A lot of us really enjoy your comedic friendship and chemistry. The cool cars are a fun bonus. Cheers from Nebraska.

And tell about 2015 cuz I remember dating a girl in 2011 and I was making video blogs and she had no idea what that was you she thought that was the stupidest thing you could do and that was when ShayCarl with making a daily video every day but she can't understand what the reasoning behind the video vlog was and then look at 2015 the same girl who thought I was dumb start making videos with her phone because eventually it started to get popular. That's the thing with you to from 2005 to about 2014 it was more of an underground Wild West now people looking NLcameras as a means of transportation AKA a paycheck

Now just carry in car to car and office Loud Bluetooth Battery powered speakers played from streaming my cellphone unlimited playlists. No worry about wiring, powering, theft, etc... just remember to charge speakers every few days or plug into a power port while driving once in awhile. Gauges sorta the same used to be an install more wiring routing maintenance etc.. now ECU tells tablet dash anything you care to monitor and able to review it later. The future is here and makes old cars all the more enjoyable.
