I just stumbled upon this one and thought it quality enough to search for this thread to bump. He's clearly a UK GRM'er type.

Mike Patey.  Yes, its home built airplanes.  Except... He design stuff on a CAD system, fabricates stuff on zillion dollar machining setups (think billet wing ribs), custom designs and fabricates most everything that isn't metal out of carbon fiber.   Check out Draco and Scrappy.

Youtube kept recommending me to watch his late 70s Chevy Caprice revival.  I did back in September and got hooked after that.

SuperfastMatt's interesting projects, technical detail and dry sense of humor is rapidly making it my favorite channel.

I've been quite enjoying I Do Cars - it's run by a guy who has an engine recycling business. Most of it is blown engine teardowns, which are very interesting, but there's also some other car stuff as well. Best of all, it's not annoying, which seems to be an ever-increasing problem with YouTube content these days.

I like the "Adventures Made From Scratch" channel, he runs a scrap yard and for some reason it's fascinating to Me

I enjoy this guy's diagnostic work and he is also entertaining. Watch him for a bit and soon you'll be saying "there's your problem lady" and telling delivery guys "don't let your meat loaf"...

Way back in the late 60s my best friend and I were famous for saying "keep a cool tool and don't let your leaf load".  I thought we made it up, but maybe it was stolen.

x2 I came here to post this.

He's got a ratty cbr1000 powered Honda S600 with Miata suspension, and his current project is Tesla swapping a 50s Jag. Just got it driving.

I can't recall if it was mentioned before, but if you like old sports cars (particularly British ones) "This Week In Cars" has some good stuff.

Hunt The Front for dirt late model racing in the south.

Good bunch of guys working their way up the ranks. Been watching since their earlier days.

They're going places.

I watch that also. He finds some interesting stuff. I liked the Studebaker clean out. 

Never knew 'wall hangers' were so popular. Geez, they cut off a lotta front ends.

The Best Motoring videos are still being produced and I still love their comparisons.

There's a bunch of these under similar names, like amazing things, amazing things, official, etc, youtube will suggest them in the sidebar.  They're a good reality check on what actually is possible with very limited resources.  Looks like it's out of Pakistan, but I've seen the same in SE Asia, I assume Eastern Europe, Africa, etc would also look very familiar.

This one is some sort of cast iron 3 cyl diesel, block has stripped head bolt threads and bad bores.  Once you get to the final decking/boring/honing it looks not so different from any engine machine shop operation from the mid 50's.  But getting to that point is pretty eye opening.
