I Bought @Robert Mitchell The BIGGEST Surprise! HIS FIRST CAR!

Αυτοκίνητα και οχήματα

Yesterday (31st of March) it was @Robert Mitchell his birthday and I had a -quite literally- a big surprise for him. Back in December 2020 I bought him his first ever car: 1989 Chevy Silverado K1500. In today's video I will show you everything that was involved in this process: planning, buying, shipping, importing the car and of course presenting the gift itself that was met with great excitement!
Go wish Robert a belated Happy Birthday:

    When I saw that the seller for the truck was in Pennsylvania I immediately went oh no when you bought it. Then I saw the inspection part of it and there's no way that was a Pennsylvania native farm truck. It would be completely ground to rust at this point if it was. That's definitely a southern truck judging by the video of the under carriage. It's one hell of a clean example for a truck.

    Winning bid: Somewhere between USD10.000 and USD15.000. And why aren't we supposed to see that number exactly? Because then we'd know you paid too much for it since these trucks go for 5-9k? I don't understand your philosophy... You don't hide your underbite but THIS you hide? Fascinating.

    Hi Misha, whats up with 3rd different license plates on Roberts truck "KLAW1H" ? Is there any additional story regards to registrating car? You talked only about "KLMC383" and "KLR991H" plates. Firstly I noticed those additional plates on AutoAddiction "Car Friday" video and then today on Your "Yaris lap" when truck blocked your view to the street.

    Over my life time, I have lost everything, but one thing. The only thing that I've been able to hang on to, and literally the only thing, was my 92 Chevy Silverado. I'm currently fixing it to be my sons first ride. Looks like you got a nice piece. Thats the kind of truck that will last for ever. Roll up windows, simple V6, easy to work on, I bet it's even decent with fuel mileage. I've had many of those trucks, and worked on 100's of them. Robert may be a 83 model, but I'm a 77 model, and I find it hard to believe that they are becoming "classics". Time slips away, Great video, Thank You for sharing.
