Do you love watching automotive-oriented videos all day like us?

Of course you do.

But where’s the best content? As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we have no qualms about giving these 10 automotive YouTube channels our stamp of approval.

They’re awesome. And if you don’t already know about them? You’re welcome.

Motor Trend Magazine

Gorgeous filmmaking. Fast cars. Car guys with a sense of humor.

There’s simply nothing to not love.


Watch Blastolene’s Randy Grubb showcase the Decoliner—a converted 1973 motorhome with a fly bridge for dual-driver’s seat options, and get a feel for what you’ll see on /Drive. So rad.

Jay Leno’s Garage

Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno is, in addition to his comedy, famous for his love of cars. The Jay Leno’s Garage YouTube channel is a fantastic way to peek inside Leno’s actual collection and get a closer look at some of the highlights within.


The Dragtimes Info YouTube channel is great because so much of the content is essentially two awesome cars racing side by side, just how we like it. It can help settle debates about which car is better in a straight-line race. Like this Lambo vs. Porsche vs. Audi video.

Car and Driver Magazine

Everyone knows Car and Driver magazine. There’s a reason for that. Check out their YouTube channel for more cool stuff, including this video showcasing their 10 best consumer cars of 2014.

Eric the Car Guy

Who’s Eric the Car Guy? A dude named Eric. A dude who can fix cars. And he’s made a lot of hay on the Internet making videos that help people learn things–something we believe in strongly.
Here’s a short video of Eric teaching viewers a quick, easy, safe way to remove stubborn brake drums without pounding them with a hammer:

Summit Racing Equipment

“Oh look! OnAllCylinders is shamelessly plugging their buddies at Summit Racing!!!”

Well, yeah. But we should deal in facts, too. The Summit Racing YouTube channel has more than 1,000 videos—the vast majority of which are short- to intermediate-length videos that will teach the at-home mechanic how to complete certain jobs, how to choose certain parts, and many of the intricacies of adding aftermarket horsepower to his or her ride.

Want to learn how to tune a Holley-style four-barrel carburetor to achieve a smooth idle? Sure you do.

The Smoking Tire

Much like /Drive, The Smoking Tire gives you a first-hand look at a ton of great cars.

Fast Lane Daily

What’s Fast Lane Daily? If you don’t know, watch Derek D do what he does. Then subscribe and watch every day. You’ll probably like it.

Hot Rod Magazine

From the Hot Rod Power Tour to Drag Week to various vehicle features and tech-related content, Hot Rod is a great all-around source of auto entertainment for enthusiasts of all stripes. Need proof? Check out this episode of Roadkill. It’s awesome. See for yourself:
