      I really enjoy savagegeese for reviews He has good commentary and I really like the "In the Shoppe with Scott Turbowski" segment of each episode.

      That's totally inappropriate. It's lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!

      MPZ Race Video - high quality hillclimb videos with excellent sound.



      NoriYaro - Australian dude in Japan who covers drifting and all kinds of grassroots stuff.



      The Hoonigans - Anyone who has a [HOONIGAN] sticker on their car is probably an idiot, but I still like their brand anyway; the videos are highly entertaining.



      Drive Tribe - everyone subscribes to this channel already right?



      Carfection - Formerly XCar. The production can be a little amateurish, but they get their hands on a lot of cool cars and do a good special every now and then.

      And since you can only post 5 vids per post, here are a few more:

      Donut Media - creative dudes, couple of ex-GoPro media team employees.



      Drifts n Lifts - Canadian dude who drifts Volvos on the cheap. I get a kick out of this dude.



      Анастасия Трегубова - I don't even speak Russian and I like these videos. The host is cute and it seems like they always abuse the cars.



      hushypushy - you may have heard of this guy

      If you like to watch project and fix-it episodes, DeBoss Garage stars a friendly small town hoser with great skills and filthy shirts.

      He has tons of video: documented a Cummins swap into his Tahoe, turbo LS V8 into a old Mercedes wagon, lawn tractor repair, GTO restoration...it's a bit of everything, with the realistic skills and tools a guy would use in a small town garage.

      ...so I unsubbed from Dahm's channel.

      A few not mentioned:

      Eric The Car Guy: I ended up hooked on his videos when I got a '97 Accord because he has a clear, concise, real-world (i.e. no high-dollar/shop-only tools) repair video for every single thing on that car. He's a former Honda/Acura tech who now has his own shop and most of his videos now are his own Fox body Fairmont build.

      South Main Auto: Not really how-tos, more like just watching over the shoulder of a real world working mechanic as he does real diagnosis on customer cars.

      I almost watched this guys ZL1 review over the weekend but I just couldn't do it. I just knew he would launch it all over the steering wheel at some point, at least once. So annoying.

      I know B is for Build has been mentioned but I'm not sure if any of you watch Tavarish.

      Both of those guys are pretty limited in their knowledge, but they don interesting things and sometimes they fail. For whatever reason, I appreciate that.

      My person favorite is Nathan's Garage. IMO, he's very enjoyable to watch and explains what he's doing. Thus far, most of his videos cover basically three old truck swaps on to Crown Vics.

      ChrisFix is also an excellent channel and has some great how-to's.

      Those are who I'm currently watching, in addition to Tmartn2 and Achievement Hunter.

      1. He advised that simply jacking the car and working under it with the hydraulic jack is okay. NO NEVER.

      2. He gave some really vague information about "older cars" (a late 1990s Celica) not taking advantage of synthetic oil and "newer cars" (a barely more recent Matrix) needing it. Both of these cars have the exact. same. oil requirements. At no point did he just say "read the owner's manual for the correct oil type and do exactly what it says."

      It's stuff like this that I just shake my head. Basically when it comes to advice, because there is no much bad/misinformation out there that unless I am hearing it from the engineer himself I mostly just cast it aside. I watched a video the other day on some guy with an E92 M3 coming up with all kinds of reasons to not use the spec 10w60 in that car . Buddy, at the end of the day there's one reason - You're cheap.

      There is a channel for a automotive lawyer - couldn't tell ya much more but he is smart and very entertaining. The issues he discusses are very relative to modern car purchasing.

      He tells one great story about a Mercedes with "chromed" wheels that would never properly balance.

      Also addresses the "accidental winning key" scenario.

      Anybody know which guy I am talking about?

      Came to post Noriyaro but Hushypushy beat me to it.

      I like this channel because its just raw footage from Japan. Meets, drifiting, cruising around, and just endless hours of cool cars.





      Same with this channel




      I know TCL hates stancey stuff but theres a lot of really talented Cinematographers and photographers in the scene.

      Some of my favorites;

      Wendover productions, just incredibly interesting vids on everything from aviation to quantum suicide.

      Wendover Productions is all about explaining how our world works. From travel, to economics, to geography, to marketing and more, every video will leave you with a little better understanding of our world. New videos go out every other Tuesday.


      Engineering explained; pretty self explanatory, with tons of info you can learn from;



      Grays Garage;

      I am a PhD student specializing in automobile aerodynamics and I am an avid car enthusiast. I have a 1988 Toyota MR2 and a 1987 Mazda RX-7 Turbo II which I am rebuilding and upgrading. This channel is where I host all my videos.
      His stuff is absolutely brain candy to me. I slept through every fluid dynamics course I took, but put some model cars into a fluid channel and I cant take my eyes off the TV. If you have a roof spoiler, you need to watch his series



      Stop a Douchebag;

      "Stop a Douchebag" - is a Russian youth movement that attempts to enforce the traffic regulations in Russia.
      We do not fight for the law. We fight for people to think about the rights and convenience of others regardless of whether there is a police officer near them or not.
      Because Russia. Like a can of Pringles, you can't stop at just one.



      SavageGeese

      Probably my favorite automotive review "youtuber". He has incredible production value for being a one-man-band, great insights, a technical background to pull from, and is a very capable driver--which means you can actually put weight behind his commentary on dynamics. I once watched a 30 min minivan review of his, and enjoyed every minute. True story
