What I’m Watching: James Glickenhaus Garage

Car collector, Pinninfarina collaborator, and now manufacturer. James Glickenhaus is a man we can all aspire to be, someone who has made enough money to last a life time, and chooses to spend that money building and racing bespoke vehicles. This video gives us a great insight into his history, present, and future.

What I’m Watching: Jay’s Restorations in Progress

Aside from the many guests Jay has on his show, Jay Leno’s Garage, he also has a plethora of vehicles in various states of restoration. This ~22min video showcases some of the unfinished projects in the shop, perfect for people like us who want to see the bare bones more than the finished product.

What I’m Watching: Roadkill Corvette-Kart

I remember seeing the article about this cut-down C4 Corvette many years ago, so to see it re-born on the Roadkill show has made my day. To add speed, add lightness!  

What I’m Watching: Giant Killer 510

Yes, I’m biased towards Datsuns (and especially 510s), but what did you expect!? Build Threads Discussion Group member John recently posted up this video that was created about his F20C 510 build. It’s a great piece that gives you an insight into not only the build of the car, but the owner, too, which is […]

What I’m Watching: Honda, the otheR side.

This would have to be one of the best car advertisements I’ve seen. While my YouTube digestion usually revolves around DIYers, it’s nice to see what a powerhouse agency can do when given free reign and a chunk of manufacturer dollars. The main thing you need to know about this video, is that you should […]

What I’m Watching: Harry’s Garage

Huzzah! Another YouTube channel to add to your subscriptions has just popped up. This time it’s Harry Metcalfe, founder of EVO Magazine, getting in front of the camera to share his exotic automotive shenanigans with us mere mortals. Definitely one to subscribe to.

What I’m Watching: Project CARS simulator demonstration

I don’t know if I have the patience (or bank account) to delve into the world of realistic car simulators, but if I did, I would LOVE a setup like this! Project CARS website.

What I’m Watching: Ferrari F40 – Analogue Animal

Yes, I am obsessed with F40s. No, I don’t apologise. This lovely 17min film from XCARFilms combines a touching monologue by F40 expert and former racer, John Pogson, mixed with some on-track footage of a pair of special F40′s. Make sure you turn your speakers up when the two prancing horses step on it.

What I’m Watching: Welding Tips & Tricks

This is a channel whose value I cannot put into words. When I first bought my MIG welder and started learning how to use it, weldingtipsandtricks.com was one of my first stops. The amount of information and the way it’s presented is extremely helpful for a noob like me, and there’s probably content that suits […]

What I’m Watching: Bamse’s Turbo Underpants

Bamse

When Bamse was asked what the difference was between normal underpants and turbo underpants, his response was “the skidmarks are bigger”. Who can argue with that? Despite these videos being in Finnish, there’s no subtitles needed for the amount of rev-limiter bashing, exhaust popping, tyre frying burnouts that you’ll see. These guys are very entertaining, […]
