Our family journey on Youtube all started back in late 2012… right before our second child, Jaka, was born. Those first years of videos were a learning opportunity and our way of sharing our daily lives as a family with you and the world.
Youtube for us is a way of life; a method of documenting life’s challenges and victories as a family. It is also a way for our children to remember their childhood and the adventures they went on. This journey we are all on is truly magical and by sharing ours with you, we hope to inspire others to embrace each and every day to the fullest. We all have a story to tell and this is our way of doing it.

James Stauffer You Tube Channel
The Stauffer Garage YouTube channel includes detailed tutorials about how best to rehabilitate both the exterior and interior of vehicles. Stauffer explained his motivation for starting the project on his LinkedIn page:
Lets start from the beginning… Back in 2010 when I first started detailing in college as a way to make an income to pay for school and fund those enjoyable experiences college is known for. I learned that whether I was detailing a junked up civic or a Ferrari, every car deserves some love and ensuring every nook and cranny is touched. This is where my attention to detail originated from and the need for the best detailing tools to do the job done well and right.
