The most entertaining social media accounts to follow for car enthusiasts in 2023
Everyone likes informative, interesting, or funny social media accounts. Here are a few entertaining ones about cars and the people who drive them. And don’t forget to follow us, too, at the following accounts:
Obscure Cars Daily
Obscure Cars Daily covers (you guessed it!) obscure cars, featuring photos and video of unusual cars ranging from classics to restomods. They even cover obscure car meets, like this video from Pittsburgh’s North Side Coffee & Cars.
ChrisFix also makes car repair videos for YouTube, although he makes videos on other related topics as well, like how to replace your entire driveway and what it takes to race a $500 car for 24 hours. He promises daily updates on his Instagram, where he also posts about drifting his Mustang and mechanic memes.
If you like to hate-scroll on supercars, this is the account for you. It features lots of photos and videos of street-legal, high-performance exotics smashed, on fire, flooded, and more. Responsibly, they don’t post any serious or fatal crashes, so you can enjoy your schadenfreude with a clear conscience while you’re watching Mustang drivers do Mustang things.
Antique Truck Club of America (ATCA)
ATCA is the premier organization for collectors and lovers of antique, vintage, and classic trucks, so if you’re looking for photos of Crosley trucks at a car show, this is the account for you.
Blake 4 Life
Blake 4 Life posts antique and classic vehicles. Here you’ll mainly find trucks, although there are cars and vans as well. The shots aren’t as artsy as Scott Brown’s, so if you’re looking for something less pretentious, this is for you.
Petrolicious is dedicated to quality, original videos and articles for car enthusiasts, with a focus on both classics and racing. They have many documentaries on car history and interviews with collectors. Both their Instagram and YouTube are worth follows.
The Smoking Tire
The Smoking Tire is a podcast and YouTube channel from Matt Farah, Editor-at-Large for Road & Track. As you would expect, it features a lot of automotive video reviews, but there’s a lot of other automotive-related content as well.
Wataru Kato is the founder of Liberty Walk, a Japanese company that specializes in widebody supercars. Of course, widebody kits are controversial, as some purists think they ruin the supercars and destroy the chance of these high-performance cars ever being raced. But if you’re into widebodies, Wataru’s accounts are good ones to follow for photos and videos of those cars, as well as other vehicles.
Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) racing, a.k.a. the German Touring Car series, hasn’t launched a North American series yet, despite attempts to do so since 2015. As such, it hasn’t really taken off here in the States. However, if you’re into DTM racing, or just interested in getting into it, there’s no better place to start than the official DTM Instagram account.
Humble Mechanic is a YouTube channel from a master certified VW tech about cars, car parts, and DIY videos. He also does videos for aspiring mechanics on how to get started. His Instagram and Facebook are also good follows for additional photos or videos related to his YouTube videos, or other mechanic-related content, like this pet peeve about hood cables.
If you want to check out some cool prototype cars from the past, this is the account to follow. Many of the posts have a lot of information on the story behind the show vehicle, so you can get a little history lesson as well!
Robin Trajano is an LA-based automotive photographer whose clients include Mercedes-Benz, Kia, and Porsche. Follow this account for some sweet shots of those makes, including these shots of the crazy-looking Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR.
Club Mulholland is a luxury automotive club based just north of London, so if you want to see some beautiful shots of Ferraris, Porsches, and McLarens in the British countryside or across Europe, this is the place. They also have a YouTube account where they document their tours and track days.
In the interest of disclosure, please note that Dorman Products has business relationships with the following accounts.

Sally McNulty races in Touring Car America. Follow her social media accounts for progress on her racing career, or for photos and videos of her collecting and building Hondas.
Rich Whiteman has been drifting for over eight years and began competing in 2019. While building his skills over the years, he has gotten the opportunity to tandem with many legendary drivers, like Chris Forsberg, Vaughn Gitten Jr., and Yoshinori Koguchi.
