Random guy fixes up a Prelude for around $700 total. 2.7m views in 6 weeks.

Some time ago he sold his first car, the Prelude to a friend, who ran it into the ground, and owed the main guy $300. The friend was going to scrap the Prelude, but the main guy told him to give it to him and they would call it even. He did not feel that it was a fair trade, it needed a new engine and other components, but he wanted his old car back.

$300 for the car
$250 Scrapyard Accord engine
$100 wheels
$20 wheel repair
$50 Rustoleum paint job
$50 lip

I get $770 just for the stuff that he mentioned. I thought it was a cool video and all, but I am still surprised that it got so many views so quickly. He is keeping the car, but how much do you make on 2.7m views?
