    I don't regularly watch any YT channels. I have watched one or two episodes of a few of the ones you listed but that's about it. Most automotive-related YouTube channels just to make me squirm. Too corny and playing to the lowest common denominator.
    I rarely feel like I've learned anything or been exposed to anything I didn't already know. I guess I am just more difficult to entertain than your average car guy.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    I watch a lot of the Motor Trend videos mentioned above. In addition I watch

    Dirt Everyday (good truck and 4x4 tips)
    Finnegan's Garage (Roadkill co-host Mike Finnegan, good fab and welding tips)

    I started listening to The Driving Show. It's hosted by a close friend of mine with a true passion for racing, as a racer, and many years in Motorsports media coverage as a pit reporter and motorsport PR personnel. His enthusiasm is genuine and infectious.

    I don't know why but I really have a hard time watching most of the YT car videos. I have been enjoying the Randy Pobst and the bearded guy videos when I watch them. I honestly can't figure out why it's so difficult to make good car related television, especially in the US.

    Road & Track has some good videos on YT as does Consumer Reports. Granted, the latter includes all types of vehicles.

    SCCA has recordings of prior year's Runoffs races. It's fun to watch those.

    99% of the YT videos I watch are race videos, SM and whatever decent SPM races I can find. General automotive videos just don't interest me anymore.
