Mighty Car Mods

Uukausi sitten

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 started watching back in 2013 when I started working on modding my own car and wanted to find peeps that were doing the same kind of stuff. Your videos taught me that I don't need to be a professional mechanic or have years of experience to dabble and just try to modd/break/fix stuff myself.

I've been watching you guys since the start. I dont know how many episodes you'd put out when I first found you, but it wasn't many and this was the first video i watched. You guys have done amazing things over the years and knowing that its been 13 years makes me feel really old. Keep it up guys :)

It truly feels like yesterday that in about 2008, I found my way into the MCM universe in small-town PA in high school. I got my first car (in my profile pic) in Nov 2009 and MCM was my go-to on the how-to's for mods. Cheers to you both and to another 13 years! 🤙🍻

I remember when I first found this channel, ahh the good ole days when you guys made the Ford Meteor commercial. I kept watching you guys and then y’all started on the black civic “Type R” lol. I’ve been a follower ever since and I’m not gonna lie, life happens and things get hectic but I eventually found my way back to you guys. You guys rock and I am super happy for your successs! Here’s to another 13 years! 🍻

Man, I remember discovering this channel a few years back and going all the way back to watch this episode. Now I've seen them all, I've gone on to follow Skid Factory and BCW, and I've I've chopped fingers bloody everywhere. Even after all these years, however, I have to say: First step unclear, jacked off my car.

100,000 views for a six-month-old channel in 2008 is actually huge. That was back when 10k subscribers was considered to be doing really well and if you were getting a few thousand views on each video you were considered to be a successful FIpostr. The level of production as well is way above what probably 99.99% of other FIpostrs were doing at the time. These days people don't even start FIpost until they've dropped $1000 on a camera and a microphone without knowing how to use them but in 2008 people literally just used whatever they had. Camera phones weren't quite good enough yet (but would be a few years later) so it was often cheap digital cameras and even old camcorders. I have to assume that the quality of the production played a significant role in how quickly the channel grew. I'm really impressed that you guys kept all of the raw files too. I wonder how many terabytes you've got lying around after 13 years.

Honestly, half of the reason I watch every single one of your videos is because their the best quality stuff out there. the other half is simply because you guys are just, well, guys. You don't put on a false image to be larger than life, you don't do anything clickbaity to draw people in, etc. You guys are just genuine car and motorcycle nerds, and that makes your videos much more relatable and enjoyable.

Love you guys. I started watching last spring, was out of work and the lockdown was depressing. Your humour and skills are a hit. 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'
