I've tried to watch Cold War Motors. Hour long videos are a commitment, and he just seems to ramble too much. I also don't believe the guy owns video editing software. The cars are cool, but...

One of the reasons I like Coldwar Motors actually is the hour long videos...it's like sitting down every Saturday evening to watch your favorite TV show.

Yeah, I think it's a bit of an acquired taste, but I'm with you, I look forward to to watching his latest episode, Saturday's at 4:00.

I have four that I watch that I didn't see here. 
Finnegans Garage - I think everyone knows or can picture that one

Ambition Strikes - it's a husband and wife that build things. They made a boom docking camper truck that I found interesting. It's just kind of calm and interesting and not annoying to me so decent casual watching

Andrew Camarata- this guy builds and does a lot of stuff  pretty interesting and clean so I can let the kids watch it  

tech zone- it's kind of weird digital automated talking deal but cool top ten kind of deal

I'm not sure all episodes have made it to youtube yet, but this PBS from the UK show was great. Henry is really into motorcycles, and has a few Land Speed records on them. But they restore/fix nearly anything, from ancient race cars to tractors. And then they actually USE them as intended. Love of all things mechanical.

Here's the YT promo vid:

Uncle Tony's Garage never fails to teach me something. I'm not put off by his New York swagger as I grew up around people like him. Some people can't stand him. For me, it's like hanging out with a guy I knew in high school.

His mopar slant 6 into NA Miata project has been pretty interesting.

I don't think anyone has mentioned Robot Cantina.  His project is very strange (still a car tho) but he does a lot of technical discussion.  His helper Gnome is a bit of a personality though.  He's also one of us..  I mean literally he's on the forum (I appologize I can't remember his handle) but his channel is growing massively.  

Hey, thanks for the mention!     Robot Cantina is GRM's Doc Brown  and formally Fujioko.  The channel is dedicated to getting an old Honda Insight to go as fast as possible with a lawn mower engine and recently a fuel injected 420cc Hemi cement mixer engine.  Its all just for fun, but I do try to throw in a little bit of knowledge.

I really enjoyed Bad Obsession Motorsports and I really like Vice Grip Garage with the road trips.


I'd suggest a lighthearted new guy in OK having doing some  junkyard "make it run" videos with oddballs like Internationals and several Datsuns called:

"Puddin's Fab Shop"


Also some cool field find rebuilds, tv car replicas and a few BMW Isettas on
