About

What the hell is CAR BROS?

In January of 2015 a group of three car enthusiasts from Central California decided to blend their love of automobiles and a satirical + occasionally stupid sense of humor into a YouTube channel called CAR BROS. 

In the nearly five years since, we've produced a number of videos poking fun at the often too-serious world of car culture. In the summer of 2018, we began a weekly light-hearted automotive podcast that has since picked up a small but loyal audience of like-minded folks who enjoy both cars and humor as much as we do. 

Enter the Fierri

A few years ago we decided to make our biggest leap yet, and spent $4,000 real life American dollars on a 1986 Pontiac Fiero that has been converted into a stunningly detailed replica of a Ferrari Enzo supercar. 

To this day we know almost nothing about how the car came together or the visionary behind its construction, but we can certainly say that it's a one of a kind creation. And from the moment we laid eyes on it we've had a desire to share its beauty and craftsmanship with the world.

To this point the car has made appearances in two of our short videos, but from the beginning we've had the goal of taking the "Fierri" to one of the biggest and most prestigious gatherings of classic, exotic, and important cars in the world - Monterey Car Week. There it will take its rightful place among the world's greatest and most exclusive automobiles. 

Now, after years of scheming over the possibilities, our goal is to make the dream in reality in August of 2019 and this is where your support comes in.

The Absolute Worst Car on Earth. Literally 

If you've read this far, it's time to let you in on a little secret. A truly shocking one. Our little Enzo is a pile of shit. It's an absolute basket case of a car that was sketchy when it was built and is even sketchier now after sitting for most of its life.  

In fact, when you factor in the Fierri's aesthetics, performance, reliability, comfort, build quality, safety or any other metric one would use to judge an automobile, we can make a legitimate claim that it's the single worst vehicle on the face of the earth. We've yet to determine whether its original builder had the world's greatest sense of humor or was just high on bath salts the whole time he was working on it.

Cosmetically we consider the Fierri's flaws to add character and style, but mechanically it's a different story.  Over the years we've done our best to address some of these issues, doing the bare necessities to get the car on the road. But it soon became apparent that the car's needs a significant amount of work and money invested into it before it can be "enjoyed" to the proper extent.

In fact we've had ambitions for using the car a lot more for various video projects, but the car's general sketchiness and need for proper repairs have kept both its miles and camera exposure to a minimum thus far. 

Among the items that need to be immediately addressed before we can confidently and safely drive the car include -

  • A nasty exhaust manifold leak that basically poisons anyone who is in the car, makes an awful sound and worst of all poses a sizable fire risk given the overall shoddy quality of the car. Because of the Fiero's - we mean Fierri's mid-engine layout this isn't the easiest problem to repair and requires removal of the cylinder heads to properly fix.
  • Lights and turn signals that currently don't function
  • Bald tires that were already of questionable quality and safety when new
  • Brake system that is 51% rust
  • A number of other small but frustrating issues that are common on any modified vehicle - especially one as head-scratchingly bad as this one.

Car Week or Bust!

Ever since the Fierri made its first video appearance we've been asked by both hard-core and casual viewers alike to feature the car more, and combined with our long-standing desire to take the Fierri to Monterey Car Week, we decided to enlist the help of Kickstarter.

Our goal raise is to raise enough funds to get the car fully roadworthy, cover the expenses of bringing the Fierri to Monterey and entering as many events as we can, and most importantly documenting the entire experience in a film that we are tentatively calling Concordo Elegants.

Assuming the Kickstarter is succesful we've come with a tentative list of plans for Car Week and they include taking the car to few different events and in addition to a whole lot of cruising around.

Planned events and "appearances" include -

Exotics on Cannery Row

Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion

Concours De Lemons

- A whole lot more.

In addition we plan on holding a casual meet and greet on a day and location TBA where any supporters, fans and friends who happen to be at Car Week can come hang out with us and check out the car. Maybe we'll even let you sit in it!

In the limited amount of time we've actually driven the Fierri on the street, it gets attention in ways that are beyond comprehension. Entire intersections come to a stop, and faces fill with astonishment, laughter and occasional disgust.  

It's simply one of the funniest and most entertaining sights in the wold, and we can only imagine the shenanigans that will happen when we take the Fierri to Monterey Car Week and capture it for Concordo Elegants.

Where Your Money Will Go

We've done some number crunching and have come up with a minimum figure of $4,000 to pull this off. 

The majority of the money raised will cover the aforementioned repairs and mechanical refreshing to be taken care of by a professional mechanic, along with the expense of getting the car to and from Monterey, event entry fees and all the other costs involved with producing Concordo Elegants.

Anything raised beyond that will simply allow us to do more during both during Car Week and after. If funding allows, we also have schemes to take the car to additional events in the future so the masses can enjoy this one of a kind machine.

What's in it for You?

We've come up with a number of reward tiers suitable for everyone from normal VIPs to very important high level VIPs. 

All supporters will get early access to the film, and we are also offering everything from souvenir stickers to your own logo placement on the car and grandest of all - the keys to the Fierri itself.  Be sure to check out our reward tiers for more info.

Making the Dream a Reality

Needless to say this is CAR BROS' most ambitious project yet, and it's something we've been dreaming about for way too long. Now we want to make it reality. And with your support we'll be able to do exactly that.

Thank you for your consideration and generosity. Please don't hesitate to contact with us any questions, suggestions, or anything else. 

Risks and challenges

The greatest challenge for this project is simply to get the Fierri into a good running state and getting it to Car Week in August. Fortunately we have the help of a great local mechanic who is fair and trustworthy, and we are confident handing the car over to him. There will likely be plenty of awkward moments once we arrive in Monterey, but it's those moments that will make the film especially entertaining.
