This first Hard Top C8 Convertible is gorgeous and one of the nicest hard top convertibles on the market. It reminds us of the Mclaren Hard Top Convertibles as well.

I arrived at Corvettes at Carlisle this afternoon, said “hi” to Mike Furman and our friends from Spring Mountain Motor Resort/Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, checked out Mike Furman’s 2020 Corvette Coupe, and then found Al & Andrea showing off their newly delivered 2020 Corvette Hard Top Convertible (HTC). Al talked with me about their new Corvette and allowed me to check out the top and rear window operation, engine access, and other elements of the new HTC. Thanks to Al & Andrea for taking time to share their new Corvette with us! My apologies for the wind noise during the interview. The wind was blowing so hard that organizers asked people to either stake their tents or take them down.

StreetSpeed717 ZR1

Here is a video of StreetSpeed717’s 1000+ horsepower C7 ZR1 build he got done at Late Model Racecraft. Late Model Racecraft in Texas is StreetSpeed717’s go to performance shop for all his corvettes currently as a few other corvette performance shops  he used locally in Pennsylvania where he lives didn’t work out.

StreetSpeed717 Net Worth

Our educated guess with videos below from him showing many times how much he makes we will go with at least 2 million in net worth.

Based on StreetSpeed717 saying he makes about $80k on average per car giveaway with Inshane Designs, 30-50k per month from YouTube Ad revenues, and the ability to buy 5 to 6 cars at a time like it’s nothing including a Lamborghini Urus and a $800k+ Lamborghini Aventador we would guess it’s at least 2 million in net worth.

He recently went house hunting with his soon to be wife Gina as well and they also are buying a vacation house in the Outerbanks of North Carolina. Again he’s very transparent on YouTube and Instagram about all of this. As well as having a house custom built in the summer of 2022.

And now Mike and Gina have their own “Family style” vlog to gain even more YouTube ad revenue and other sponsorship or giveaway opportunities down the line along with diversification with StreetSpeed717’s income.

StreetSpeed717 C8 Corvette

StreetSpeed717 Mike was one of the first to get a C8 Corvette thanks to the hook up he has with his buddy Matt Beaver at Whitmoyer Chevrolet. And he is set to be the first allocation for the C8 Corvette Z06 from Matt Beaver at Whitmoyer Chevy as well.

As soon as order are allowed to hit the system the Beav has StreetSpeed717’s corvette C8 or any corvette order ready to hit good old Bowling Green Kentucky with some Pennsylvania Corvette order love.

Once Mike Streetspeed717 got his C8 Corvette with another YouTuber TJ Hunt he wrapped it Rapid Blue since Rapid Blue was a color that could of stopped him from getting his Corvette C8 so quick since it was one of those colors the Bowling Green, KY plant wasn’t going to do right away.

Here are some StreetSpeed717 C8 Corvette videos before he had it shipped to Late Model Racecraft in Texas for months on end getting Twin Turbos installed.

StreetSpeed717 Car Giveaways

Mike StreetSpeed717 has been on a tear with Car Giveaways with Inshane Designs. He noticed the trend with companies like Omaze, 80Eighty, and just social media influencers in general using Car Giveaways to make money, sell merch, and get more views, likes, comments and engagement on their social media profiles or YouTube Videos.

In several YouTube videos StreetSpeed717 mentioned he has made about $80,000 on a car giveaway after splitting it with Inshane Designs, paying for the car, and any expenses on mods they do to the car giveaway.

The car giveaways are a win win for StreetSpeed717 because it helps his channel, brand, and makes him another $50-80k per every 2 months or so which is usually the average car giveaway contest time. This is why we included this new revenue stream in his net worth above as well.

That adds another $250k-$500k easy to his net worth each year.

He also did a C8 Corvette giveaway that had some nice Carbon Fiber parts on it as well as Brixton Forge Wheels.

UPDATE: We Do What To StreetSpeed717’s Twin Turbo C8?!?!

Check out this video from Late Model Racecraft where they put StreetSpeed717’s back to stock for sale and removing the whole Twin Turbo system.

StreetSpeed717 JUMPS TRX and GETS fined $53,000

Per Road and Track:

In a York County, Pennsylvania court appearance on Tuesday, the YouTuber, Michael Hyssong, was ordered to pay $53,000 in restitution to repair damages done to the creek during his stunt driving in the video mentioned above, as well as several other videos published to his YouTube channel showing him driving the Ram through the creek.

“I had no idea it was illegal to drive through a creek,” Hyssong told the York Daily Record. “I’m an outdoors guy. I hike and I’ve never even littered in my life. I’m not the type to destroy natural resources.”

Hyssong was also accepted into Pennsylvania’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program (ARD), a “pre-trial diversion program for individuals with limited or no prior record” that focuses on community service, according to the official Chester County, Pennsylvania website. Should Hyssong complete the program within a year, his record will be wiped clean.

Per The Drive:

YouTuber Street Speed 717, whose real name is Mike Hyssong, has been posting videos of the TRX ever since purchasing the truck in January. In total, Hyssong posted nine videos of the TRX documenting its destruction and sale. It appears that selling the truck didn’t get him out of trouble with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, though, who caught wind of his viral videos as it readied charges against him related to his YouTube antics.
