Starting in 2003, 1320Video started as a single automotive enthusiast (with a prior life in 12 volt stereo competitions) shooting photos and sharing them on niche message boards before YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook (and MySpace) were big. As 1320Video began to be known for it’s amateur street racing videos on these message boards, they teamed up with an infamous pickup tuner “Parish” to cover everything crazy going down with his insane 1000+ horsepower pickup, this propelled 1320Video into more and more visibility across the underground street car scene.
