    Does anyone watch them?

    It seems in UK I keep coming across:

    Harrys Garage
    Becky Evans

    In USA I see one called Ever Day Driver quite often. It loks like a highly polished outfit yet loads of their videos get in the low tens of thousands of views and they only have about 300,000 subscribers. And there are three presenters to pay!

    Does anyone know how they make money? It must be more than just the views and subscribers (leading to more ads and sponsors) but they all seem obsessed with getting you to subscribe,making me think maybe that is where the money is. People like Jayemm never seem to get more than 100,000 views per video, which is nowt really. And he seems to have Ferraris, Loti and Porsches coming out of his ears.

    I realise Harry Metcalfe and Jay Leno are already loaded and I think Becky Evans presents on a 'proper' TV show somewhere now. But as for a lot of others...are they actually making money from their channels?

    Harry’s Garage, and that’s about it.

    I like his presentation style (no shouting, just for starters) and he seems like a nice bloke.

    For me the only ones that have stuck around are

    South Main Auto
    Car Wow
    Car Wizard
    Hoovies Garage
    Italia Autos ( perfect cure for when I have the urge to buy another Alfa)
    Missindon Flyer
    Railman Ray’s Repairs.

    There are quite a few others that have quickly been deleted / unsubscribed that really started to piss me off!

    Suffolk Tony Aim low, achieve your goals, avoid disappointment.

    Harry's Garage. Harry's a great presenter & his programs are really first-class, no silly histrionics or childishness. I've taken to watching Harry's Farm, & that's very good too.

    Tyrrell's classic Workshop's very interesting; I reckon Ian Tyrrell has been strongly influenced by Harry Metcalf in his manner of presentation. Oh, and Ian's a rather fine singer!

    Car Wizard occasionally, High Peak Autos sometimes (a great Range Rover lover)

    Just Rolled In - garages showing some of the truly dreadful states of the cars they're asked to fix - "Just check the tyres..."

    'Barn Find Hunter' with Tom Cotter is a favorite. A much younger me on moped did surprisingly often find old cars in barns.

    Still, as long as the nasty bully with curly hair previously on TG isn't in it I can watch pretty much everything.

    Friends Green Porsche
    Harry’s Garage
    Nick Murray
    Peter Windsor
    Supercar Driver
    The Race
    The Car Guys
    Top Gear
    The Porsche Network Tv.

    For detailing kicks:

    Detailing World
    Forensic Detailing channel

    Don’t/can’t watch them all - just dip in & out when they have something of interest.

    Have had to take to Googling the videos because the ad frequency is making YT hard to watch these days. Don’t mind a couple during a 10 minute clip but 4 or 5 is just taking the pi$$.

    I forgot to mention Number 27. Jack's a good presenter and fixes up some old but worthy wrecks. He's just bought an "Interesting" Mercedes...
  12. hifilover1979

    hifilover1979 Bigger than you...

    Mainly Harry's Garage, M539Restorations, It's Joel, some CarWow and then it's other bits of mainly TheRing driving (and crashes/spin offs etc)

    I’ve found myself occasionally watching old racing videos. More are appearing all the time. This one fascinated me, a few chuckles.

    Out of Spec reviews/motoring

  17. Seeker_UK

    Seeker_UK Is this all there is?

    Hubnut FTW.

    Also enjoy:

    JayEmm (always an honest evaluation)
    High Peak Autos (even though he's using it to sell his stock, fairly down to earth opinions)

    Car Throttle ( budget Grand Tour...)

    Car Wizard (Hoovie bought me there)

    Fair play to him, he's turned dreaming about owning exotic cars into a way to get people who dream about owning exotic cars into buying him exotic cars.

    Made slightly easier with a load of daddie's money no doubt. Like Mr JWW, a lot of them are already rich before they start.

    I'm quite liking AutotopiaLA at the minute, they're having a run of stunning cars on of late.

    I like the videos done by the bloke on Carwow, because they’re funny as well as informative.
