You are correct on how YouTube conducts itself. If its flashy and cool it will get upvoted by the internal algorithms. The more real or historical it is the more it will be ignored by the site and not get upvoted. Basically the more click-baity the better from a monetary standpoint.

YouTube's algorithm really took a dive in recent years. Oh, you clicked one video on something you're not actually interested in but accidently watched the beginning 12 seconds before hitting the back button? That must be all you are interested in from now on, here's 50 recommended videos on that subject you don't care about, despite watching hundreds of offroading related videos ;)

Just pursuing the "trending" section it's obviously just YouTube pumping the money markets and little else. (I'm saying this as I'm Chromecasting YouTube to my tv from my Google phone ATM... pass me a glass of that koolaid will ya? :) )

nice green one already in CA in original condition - https://www.ebay.com/itm/1999-Mercedes- ... fresh=true

I do like these but I think my G cabrio would be a 460 since it's an occasion car anyway, I can live without the modern amenities. Besides a 460 cab is still cheaper (so far at least)

DeMuro gets a lot more bearable if you close your eyes a few times throughout the video and pretend you're watching a car review done by the The Muppet Show. His voice would be dead on compatible with the original 70's-80's Henson production.

Funny and accurate.
It amazes me he has built a following, but then these are "amazing" days

Wonder if Doug sold his Defender 90, G Cabrio definitely an upgrade
