oh doug. I liked him better when he was writing for Jalopnik. To me, he never had any camera appeal. He has one of the most annoying whinny voice for a car reviewer on Youtube. His behind-the-wheel reviews are filled with arbitrary "doug" scores and useless comments that tell little to nothing about driving dynamic. His static (non-driving) reviews are better where he doesn't drive but to show quirks and random things about a car.

I think his writing and videos are terrific.

Jesus, the sound from that car!

Insane it is 16M now. Maybe 10 years ago the LM was going for 4/5M. OUT OF CONTROL

He's a very genuine guy.

I met him when he reviewed my purple Chevy SSR convertible pickup for his channel.

He's JUST like the guy in his videos. It's not an act - he's genuinely an enthusiastic, nerdy car guy.

Super-nice dude.

yea i enjoy his videos and reviews.

I never thought to take them all that seriously to be honest. There's definitely useful content in there...but mostly subjective opinions over actual technical stuff.
