Hi All

I am sort of addicted to YouTube especially after the recent lockdown, so thought I would start a thread for my favourite car based ones with a brief what and why.

M539 restorations - German guy who takes unloved BMWs and brings back to life, good humour, very knowledgeable on BMs, really well produced videos and nothing more than you or me could do given the time and money.

Bad Obsession Motorsport - probably does not need much introduction but they have three projects now, Binky, Escargot and the race Citroen C1. Again really great mix of humour and well produced videos, skill level well beyond me and most others!

Retropowercars - most famous probably for the Mk1 escort they did for Gordon Murray, there is a series of videos on it, but have started a weekly uncut series of videos on current projects and their status. Leaves you wishing you had the money to commission them to restore a car for you...

Those are my starter for 10, please add to the thread if you have any recommendations.

Great idea Peter. Same as you, also addicted!

My subs are, in no order: My favourites:

Building Tally Ho, a wooden boat, by Leo Sampson...binged from the beginning during furlough!
Car Wizard.....mechanical reviews and talk, no spanners, one of the more honest.
Binky and the other two projects
VinWiki.....some really great car stories
Jonny Smith....... now called The Late Brake reviews.
Jim IT expert on scammers, best of the bunch.
Tavarish..... salvage rebuilder....he's doing a Mclaren right now. He's a bit loud, but quite engaging.
Cruising the Cut.....cruising and living on a narrowboat, very well narrated and produced.
Big stories
Number 27.......a likeable Brit who spanners on an old 308 amongst others.
Arthur Tussik.....a body repairer, old school leading features a lot. No speech, just ok music.
Diagnose Dan......Dutch chap speaking English, shows extreme logic on finding mostly, electrical faults. Detailed.
DriveTribe.......a mix, apparently owned by Clarkson, Hammond and May.

And occasionally:
Hoovies Garage...mad yank
Jay Leno......
Samcrac......nutty yank
AutomatricsMTrack.....searching for stolen stuff, not posted for a while.

I'll stop there in case it gets embarrassing.....

1984 2.0 Carb HPE [ex Aus] Silver
2007 Mazda 6 2.3 [current daily,highly recommended]
The past:
1980 2.0 HPE White in South Africa [hope it survives!]
1976 1.6 Coupe lancia Blu [PFG 76R] [probably deceased]
oh,and an Uno Turbo 1992 also in SA [stolen,never recovered]

For me:-

Itchy Boots - engaging Dutch girl travelling the world solo on a motorbike- not 'biker' biased at all and beautifully shot. Presently in Scandinavia having been booted out of Peru in Coronavirus scare. Makes Ewan McGregor/Charlie Boorman look like the posh softies they are with their support teams.

Hub Nut- I am sure I am not alone on this one- Brummie collector and reviewer of unloved cars- I like to watch him spannering as it makes me look quite competent!. Have thought about letting him loose in the Lime, but then thought better of it.

Bad Obsession Motorsport- although I am well behind.

The Doghouse- Midlander tinkering with bikes in a shed. A bit custom for my tastes.

Michael Waller- Geordie tinkering with bikes in a shed- big shed.

Random one for old hippies:-

Dave Simpson- Lincolnshire-based guitar-obsessed 'unusual' chap, very open about his demons but a hell of a guitar player.

Hi guys,

My addictions ,

Davide Cironi is a legend ,finally someone has catalogued Italian Genius. Interviews with Stroppa, Gandini, Dallara et all are superb.

Harrys garage may need no intro but the Fulvia Sport is highly relevant.

Neil at Italia Auto's knows how to de-mystify things and Colin Byrne is up there with Black Nickhurst ant tother bloke' with deaths horse.

Also nearly forgot... check out Erik Comas Stratos... the Senna connection is poignant to say the least.

I love youtube  Smiley
