The Take Away My Lift

There have been some comments to my EricTheCarGuy videos lately about me working on a lift. Some of those comments seem not so nice. Some of those comments seem a bit resentful. I get it, believe me, I do.

Therefore I thought I would take the opportunity to answer to some of those comments in this episode of The Take Away. I look forward to your comments and the discussion they bring.

One more thing. To the real fans of EricTheCarGuy and ETCG1, thank you. I know I would not be here today, and working on my awesome Bendpak lift without you. My success is just as much yours as it is mine. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Also special thanks to Bendpak. Without them, I wouldn’t have a lift!
