Honda Content Creators that Rock

Honda content creators that rock Youtube and the blogs are killing it!

By Aaron Gaghagen

 

Right now is a great time to be a Honda enthusiast online. There are some really good people out there putting in serious work to bring viewers and readers solid Honda racing/buying/modifying/driving information. I’m not just talking about fap videos and pictures that just look cool with gorgeous slider shots and drone video set to the most gangsta/ratchet/trap music, but don’t really don’t tell you jack squat about the build, builder or anything of substance. I just wanted to share four of the ones that I find myself checking up on most often. I’m not saying that these are the only good ones out there, but they’re just some of my personal favorites in no particular order.

I follow these peeps and if you're in to Hondas like me, you should too!

 

Speed Academy

If you’re in to Japanese import cars, Speed Academy has to be on your radar. Pete and Dave were a huge part of what made Modified Magazine great. Yes, it sucked when Modified Magazine was shut down, but it shutting down gave the boys the push to really venture out on their own and create Speed Academy. I’ve met Peter and Dave around different events and they’re cool, chill dudes with a ton of know-how to share. I love following their Project (BAD)ASS2000 videos where they took a beat S2000 and turned it into something that can rip on the track and look sick while doing it. Just a warning: they aren’t exclusively Honda, so you may catch them talking about some Nissan, Mitsubishi or some other nonsense in their exotic Canadian accents, eh.

 

 

Honda Street Garage

I found Honda Street Garage on Youtube under video suggestions. This channel is great because they have tech information mixed in with humor and true enthusiasm for Hondas. A lot of the videos are shot in a vlog style with tons of jump cuts and handheld perspective. Although, I think the main dude, Mark, uses a windshield mounted (or something similar) camera for a lot of his on cam stuff when he’s driving, but it has the feel of a handheld. I haven’t met Mark or the crew before, but they seem like a fun group of legit Honda heads that it’d be easy to shoot the shit with and that makes the channel fun to watch.

 

 

Hondapro Jason

I met Hondapro Jason a couple years ago at SEMA while he was still selling cars as his job, but about to blow up as a Honda Brand Advocate. Jason was down to Earth and just as Honda crazy as me and Brian. Back then we were still working on Nachospeed Garage and we even shot an interview with him that never made it up on our site because the audio file was bad. Since then Hondapro Jason has taken his Honda loving ways all over the world. The good thing is that he is still just the same real dude (although WAY busier!) and he’s still bringing us the latest information about Hondas and it’s, wait for it, EPIC!

 

 

 

The Chronicles

Everyone and their brother knows what’s up with The Chronicles. It’s a blog that follows the adventures of Joey Lee that has taken on an Anthony Bourdain-type feel as he goes around from event to event, city to city, country to country. This blog isn’t exclusively Honda, but there’s a ton of Honda stuff on there and it’s great. Joey knows his stuff, especially JDM parts that not everyone might know about. I’ve met him a bunch of times around and I think I annoy him, but it’s all good because his posts on his blog and pics and articles in Super Street are spot on killer. I have no problem telling people that they should be following The Chronicles.

 

 

 

 

Nothing but Hondas. That’s exactly what you’ll find at VTEC Academy. Not because some of the other automakers’ cars that inherently drain the life out of the driving experience bore us, but because Soichiro Honda’s passion for motorsports and his company’s ability to express that in the machines they produce make a whole lot of sense.

VTEC Academy is a place for Honda fans who feel the same way and who seek the most accurate technical information and commentary to continue that very legacy and make whatever Honda it is that they drive just a little bit better. And faster.

The editors and contributors of VTEC Academy are some of the industry’s most experienced and trusted, which means the informative, unique perspectives you need are all right here. And, like you, we’re also obsessed with Hondas.

So, subscribe to our channel and hit us up at vtecacademy.com or, if you’re into social media, you can get your daily dose of VTEC Academy on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. We’re always on the look out for cool and fast Hondas.

Aaron Gaghagen
Multimedia Editor at VTEC Academy

Aaron Gaghagen is a veteran video editor and longtime Honda enthusiast. All told, he’s owned seven of them, and has enjoyed every single minute of wrenching on every single one. Except for that automatic one. That was probably a mistake. In 2010 Aaron teamed up with Brian Gillespie who along with another partner launched Nacho Speed Garage, a venture that capitalized on Aaron’s video expertise to do its part in entertaining and educating the Honda masses. Nacho Speed Garage took everything to the next level. Instead of reading magazines and cruising forums for content, Aaron and Brian were generating it themselves. The demise of Honda Tuning magazine in 2014 was the impetus for Aaron to do something even more impactful, though, which led to the creation of VTEC Academy and aims to carry that Honda torch forward in the same spirt of not just Honda Tuning but Nacho Speed Garage.
