Default Jaguar videos

Hi everyone,

I'm a long time Jaguar owner and enthusiast but I decided to add something new to my hobby this spring. I decided to try and document my cars and what i do to and with them in video from.
The result is this youtube channel, Living with a Classic: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyx...22r_aA66Y7MYnA

With having kids and a family I've sometimes found it hard to set aside some "me" time to spend in the garage, this channel is my idea to set aside some time every week to work on and enjoy my cars.
So far it feature 3 of my Jaguars, an XJ12 series 2, an XJS and a 3.8 S-type. There are plans for more to come!
XJS:
XJ12:
3.8 S-type:

Is anyone else doing anything similar? Let me know what you think of my channel and if this sort of content on Jaguars is appreciated. I have found that most youtube channels that feature cars don't feature Jaguars so I thought it would be a nice change.

Many thanks,
Adam

I am probably an outlier for the entertainment industry, so take my comment with a lack of seriousness.

I avoid videos with annotations on the preview thumbnail.

Since a lot of video makers do this, I assume it must work for the majority.

Thanks for your input. Maybe I should try one with no text and see how the video does

When I saw "Video" in the thread, I was thinking along the lines of commercial and broadcast video featuring Jags....and what came to mind were the various installments of Top Gear (and the Grand Tour devoted an entire episode, called "Jaaaaaags"), and there was a brief one on Caffiene and Octane last year.

Didn't think about YouTube. Senior moment, indeed.

It was probably my mistake for wording it wrong. They are videos that I've made and I just chose youtube as the platform to share them since it's easy to use.

I saw and commented on your spark plug video (about the cruise control heat shield). Glad to see you've found this forum.
One suggestion for your videos would be to work on your narration. They're well-shot and edited, but your narration is very flat and dry.
(I have no problems with titles on the video thumbnail, for what it's worth.)

Watching car videos is how I turn my brain off from all the troubles of life. On YT king rose archive has some good vids.
