Street Speed 717 Wiki Bio: Early Life, Family, Education
Mike grew up in Pennsylvania with his mother. At a young age, he fell in love with cars when his mother bought him a couple of Hot Wheels toys, and his initial fascination with toys turned into a true passion for anything car-related. As soon as he was old enough, he bought his first car, a 92 Silverado truck, which he used to learn the basics of driving. When he was 18 years old, he decided to leave his family home and start taking care of himself.

Start of YouTube Career
Mike launched his channel in 2015 and named it “Street Speed 717”.

As it turned out, his sincere joyful, down-to-earth style of talking and easy-going personality attracted a solid number of viewers, resulting in almost 90,000 views of his first upload. After this, Mike realized that there was a lot of people online who shared his passion for cars, especially Corvettes, and decided to continue uploading videos, in addition to his regular job as a financial advisor.
Rise to Prominence

As a result, his channel saw a surge in the number of subscribers, and he managed to climb his way up to become one of the most popular car-related YouTubers on the platform. He gradually expanded the content of his channel to include car reviews, modification videos, and to answer questions regarding the cars and his personal life. As his fan base steadily grew, he was able to invest more and more time, as well as money, into his channel. Eventually, YouTube became an equally important part of his career as finance. The popularity of his channel enabled him to regularly buy new cars, and he now owns six of them in total, some of which are worth more than a $160,000.
