Parker Nirenstein is an American YouTuber and car collector who is best known for his popular YouTube channel – ”Vehicle Virgins.”
Nirenstein was born on June 24, 1994, in Palo Alto, California, USA.
He has a sister named Madison who is also a YouTuber and a fitness expert. His father started a technology company.
Parker said in an interview about his dad:
”My dad started a technology company with his friends. I guess growing up in Silicon Valley, everybody who lived around me was a business owner.”
Nirenstein went on to say:
”They didn’t work for big companies, or maybe they did for a little while, but then they’d start a startup business.”
He went to Redwood High School in Calfornia.
From 2012 to 2013, Parker attended Tufts University. From 2013 through 2016, Nirenstein studied engineering at the University of Michigan.
From May 2014 to August 2014, he was an Electronic Systems Engineering Intern at Toyota. In the summer of 2015, he was a Product Development Engineering Intern at Ford.
Nirenstein started his YouTube channel (Vehicle Virgins) on January 12, 2012. Parker created the channel to help his followers decide what car they should buy.
His YouTube channel has accumulated over 2.21 million subscribers and over 573 million views. He said about being a YouTuber:
”I really love doing the YouTube channel. So I work 40 hours a week at Ford and that’s been good.”
”But filming the car reviews doesn’t feel like work. I work 80 hours a week but it really only feels like 40 (which) is the internship.”
One of the most popular videos is titled – ”6 Reasons Why I Hate the Ford GT.” The video has more than 8.4 million views. He said for BBC:
”The love and hate videos are just me figuring what I love and hate about the car when I’m driving it for the first time with no preconceived notions.”
”It’s kind of just raw opinion. Then I do a review that’s more cinematic. I spend a lot more time on that, get a lot of nice shots, do a lot of research on the car.”
His first car was a 2006 BMW 3-series. Some people said that he bought the car with the help of his father. He said:
”These people don’t actually know there’s a lot of second-hand used cars, that are now $10,000 – $15,000 that were once more than that, but can be great buys.”
His second car was a yellow 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo. Parker said about the car:
”The Gallardo came out when I was 10 in 2004. Ever since then, it has been my ultimate dream car.”
”I knew I had to own that car someday. I was going to do everything in my power to make that happen.”
In January 2020, he sold his Ferrari 458 Special and bought a 2015 Rolls Royce Wraith and a Ferrari 812 Superfast. He said:
”I’ve always wanted a Wraith. When I got my S-class, a Wraith is what I wanted. When I got my E63, as funny as it sounds, a Wraith is what I wanted.”
Nirenstein also said:
”And, finally, it’s in the price range. This is 2015 with 16,000 miles on it that I can afford.”
There are no reports regarding Parker Parker’s romantic life.
”One of the craziest cars I’ve ever driven. A 1250whp sequential manual swapped R34 GTR.”
”I’ve always been silly and ridiculous I have just kept that off Vehicle Virgins to be more professional.”
In 2018, he bought a $2.6 million house in the Calabasas hills. It has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, and a 3 car garage.
In 2017, the driver of a green Chevrolet Corvette Z06 smashed into a tree after traveling at around 125 mph on a public road in Michigan, reported The Drive. Later, the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office arrested the driver (Gong) and charged him with one count of reckless driving.
In July 2016, Gong and Parker were seen in a ”Vehicle Virgins” video driving the green Chevrolet Corvette Z06 on the same section of the road.
Another famous YouTuber that has a car-related YouTube channel is Mo Vlogs.
