    To be fair to him, I think he is basically self-made. His family are certainly not poor but not rich, rich and he made his original money working a job in the City and then with a non-YouTube business he started. His first car was a souped up Cleo IIRC, so prior to YT he was not exactly rolling in it. Mostly his success seems to be down to hard work and having started car youtube very early.

    Yes I'll give you that, I guess it doesn't hurt though throwing your eggs into a YT basket knowing you aren't going to be down the food bank if it doesn't take off.

    Have saved that Barra engined Bedford for a later watch, it is a stonking motor and much underrated outside of Oz. Pity it never made it over here.

    He thinks he is Clarkson, I can't watch him either.

    Cannot stand Shmee, stupid name and a very affected manner to me, soooo pleased with himself, anything he is on is a switch off for me.

    Number 27 is watchable, initially not convinced but have watched most of his recent stuff so I guess I do like it.

    To be clear he is very dull and I blocked his channel ages ago. Indeed I finally seem to have trained the youtube algorithm off car content altogether. Now it's mostly shoe repairs and Finnish nutters camping in the forest in winter with only a pocket knife and a tarpaulin :)

    Similar delivery but without the purile bits that are half funny when Clarkson delivers them.

    This is what I think. They are just messing about on YouTube. Sort of ****ing their egos off. Jayemm possibly being the best example. No way he makes enough YouTube cash to buy all the cars he buys. But he never lets on that he makes cash elsewhere like others do

    I feel the same way, cannot stand him. Thankfully he doesn’t appear on my YouTube feed any longer I guess because I haven’t mentioned him. Aw , he’s going to appear again now isn’t he!:mad:

    Forgot Jonny Smith/The Late Brake Show. A great mix of old barn finds, new Evs, new ICE stuff etc. plus he knows how to present.

    Although I don't mind him, I thought Shmee is of the Burton family (as in Burtons' clothing chain before they were bought out)?

    Quite like samcrac, keep an eye on Soup Classic Motoring for the Esprit. Vice Grip/Iron Trap Garages when the subject matter is intriguing.

    Savagegeese are good. US centric but when on form with interesting cars are hard to beat.

    Did a great multi part series on MX5.

    Not interested in supercars. I prefer nostalgia oriented stuff, so Hubnut and Twin-Cam for me.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    Same list as me largely, the owner Italia Auto’s is a friend of a friend, fairly local to me, nice guy and would be my go to if I bought anything Italian, knows his stuff, down to earth and won’t rip you off.
