    Very happy for you and the family Derek. Warmer weather and having some land can definitely do something for a fella or fellette. God bless you all!!!

    If you can still make your wife laugh uncontrollably just by looking at them you are doing good in life. NEVER and I mean never change Derek and Jessica. I was subbed long before you became big but somehow I knew you were going to shoot off and be able to have a career out of it. By far my favorite channel and family to watch on Youtube. Can’t wait to see more from Jessica, little grip garage and maybe from Bradley if he makes a channel for his rockets or whatever he wants to do. I’m disabled and can’t support financially but by golly I will watch every video with ads because you guys deserve it. Thank you guys for your dedication and for the content and genuinely hope you guys are making content for a long time. Or at least till Derek gets his hand stuck in a muffler trying to change a battery.

    Derek and Jessica, don’t ever feel pressured to get content out. I’m glad you made the right choice to spend more time with family, but I wouldn’t be a good fan if I didn’t say I’d feel really bad if you took away precious time with the kiddos. I moved to where I moved to from the cold midwest to the desert now, for the same reason. I can run dot-legal drag slicks in the middle of winter and not have a concern in the world of black ice.

    I can certainly relate to the not being able to work outside for months. It seems that around here from about November through June the cars are either buried in snow, coated in ice, frozen to the ground or buried in the mud. Sometimes a combination of the four and very unpleasant, icy mud being my least favorite. Your content last winter though with the snow machines did actually teach me a good bit about those type of engines and especially the carburetors which are very similar to other stuff that I own. I also live out away from other people, so I can do what I want with my property without people complaining. I hated living where officials were called because of a car sitting on a trailer in the driveway for a few days was a “problem”

    As someone has already said, you didn’t need to give you’re reasons, but thanks anyway! Loved Jess getting the giggles at the beginning 🤣🤣. Hope the move leads to bigger and better things and of course a better family dynamic! All the best from Edinburgh, Scotland. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿👍🏻

    This is YouTube gold..when you invite fans behind the scenes and share a little bit of your personal life people can’t help but love the VG channels even more! Seeing your guys success is so awesome and it couldn’t have happened to a more a deserving and hardworking family. ..Jeff


    Outstanding, proud of y’all, I can really relate to kids growing up in the country vs the city, just a drive down some old country back road see a 7,8,9, 10 year old cutting grass on a riding lawnmower or tractor knowing that kid is going to be well rounded in all things in life….Best thing my father ever did was move us to a small town. I’m sure the boys will thank you later on in life.

    Congrats on getting things set up the way that is best for the both of you! Working on cars in sub zero weather is not fun. I live in Northeast and have spent more time than I care to remember working on cars in the cold. Thanks for all the great content that you have given us and I look forward to seeing a lot more!

    Love the family aspect; 26 years in the Navy ended up costing me 12 years of my kids’ growing up I cannot get back. Y’all did the right thing.

    Congratulations on a really great series of programs. Your droll delivery, your wonderful off the cuff comments, your immense knowledge of matters mechanical have kept me in awe for the last year or so. I am glad that you have made a move that will allow you to continue to do great things and also to not have to freeze in winter. I am in Australia and a lot of the vehicles you are working on were never available here. But several of the Mopar vehicles reminded me of my father’s VC Chrysler Valiant which I learned to drive on. That Torque Flite transmission was a ripper behind the 225 Slant Six. My mother drove a Morris Minor for many years. 803cc of raw power. When we bought the Valiant she decided it was too powerful for her and she would continue to drive the Morris. One day I was driving the Morris and she had to go somewhere so she drove the Valiant. She never drove the Morris again. She loved to burn people off at the lights. She said ” I just push the pedal and they are all left behind.” Mike

      What a great story! Not many of those cars on the road here in NZ either but it’s still great to watch this channel. I do remember admiring those Valiant Chargers when I was a kid, and the old Falcons. Glad I’m not driving one now though, with petrol at $3 per litre & predicted to hit $4 by Christmas…
