Popular car YouTuber TheStradman has revealed how, after one day of owning a Chevrolet Corvette C8, he has already suffered vandalism to his new set of wheels.
Like many other cars focused YouTubers, TheStradman has a wide selection of vehicles that he makes videos around – be it because he’s taken them for a few laps around a track, thrown on some modifications, or wanted to present a mini Top Gear-inspired review of his vehicle.
Just like plenty of other car fanatics, the popular content creator – who has over 2.4 million subscribers on YouTube – took delivery of a brand-new Corvette C8 and quickly moved to show it off to his legion of fans. However, one thing had already gone wrong as he had suffered some minor damage right off the bat.
In his new video, TheStradman had been taking his newly delivered vehicle for a spin but before he got behind the wheel, he noted that things hadn’t got off to the best of starts.
“I can’t believe this has actually happened, day one of C8 Corvette ownership, somebody has already ‘vandalized’ the car,” he said, zooming his camera in on the back of the car and noting how someone had “ripped” his temporary tag and broke his license plate frame.
Though the damage was pretty minor, and it wasn’t like somebody had damaged a wing mirror or wheels, it was enough for the police to get involved – with the YouTuber heading back to his dealership in order to get things figured out.
With the old plate reported as stolen, TheStradman managed to get a new temporary tag fitted so that he could get back on the road, as he headed down to Miami, Florida on a 15-hour drive.
Thankfully for the YouTuber, his car managed to survive a night without any further damage and kept the new temporary plates in place.
As his ownership of the car continues, TheStradman will more than likely have some pretty neat ideas up his sleeve for customization so we’ll just have to wait and see what he does next.
