Ever wished you could be in the auto shop 24/7? Well thanks to the popularity of livestreaming, you can be (or at least watch others who are).* Livestreaming on Twitch may have been popularized by the video game industry, but now it’s found a home for car enthusiasts and mechanics as well.
We’ve found five automotive livestreams that focus on real-world cars and motorcycles (as opposed to racing games). Here’s the good news: we can watch automotive stuff 24/7! But, there’s some bad news, too. Our sleep schedule is about to be severely impacted. Time to increase the caffeine levels and tune in!
This professional automotive technician has a passion for Volkswagen and Audi cars, but works on anything. His stream strives to accurately portray the real environment in a typical repair shop, which makes it interesting for both professionals and casual enthusiasts alike.
Ken Hoff is a hobbyist mechanic and automotive streamer who enjoys fixing up project cars. Though he personally drives a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS, he works on everything. He posts his upcoming projects on his Trello, so you can always keep up to date with his custom builds.
If motorcycles are more your jam, Choppertown doesn’t just show chopper builds, they also stream other motorcycle content as well. They post their schedule updates on Twitter (in addition to some up-close and personal views of awesome choppers).
Variety makes for good content, and that’s exactly what Faris provides. His channel has cars (especially supercars), photography and other random stuff. If you’re a fan of New York, you’ll catch some familiar sites, as Faris tends to film in different areas around town.
Based out of Japan, Noriyaro is an auto-enthusiast and gamer. The content from his channel ranges from car shows to stunts and pit walks. Racing fans will definitely get a kick out of his drifting videos.
We never imagined there was such a large automotive community available to watch via livestream! And more importantly, the community is growing with new channels popping up every day. Maybe this will inspire you to start your own channel, or chat with the pros.
