5 of Our Favorite Car Blogs
If you love cars as much as we love cars, you no doubt can never read enough about them. From learning about antique cars, reading about famous racing cars (and their drivers), viewing new luxury cars, getting tips on how to fix cars yourself, what to look for in 2016’s model year offerings, and on and on and on, the Internet and its blogs provides us with a true cornucopia of everything about cars.
So just in case you haven’t found these gems of the car-blog genre, below are five of our favorite blogs about cars.
- NPR’s CarTalk Blog
The blog for the beloved CarTalk radio show is a compendium of great car blogs from all over the world as well as posts written specifically for the blog. If you’ve never listened to CarTalk itself before, we urge you to do so. The show no longer broadcasts new shows due to the death in November 2014 of co-host Tom Magliozi, but it has decades of archived shows that still air –and are still as hilarious and informative as ever.
The CarTalk blog itself offers blogs from the world over on topics such as car-buying guides, “my first car” memoirs, the “AAA Car Doctor Q&A” in which readers can send in questions about problems they are having with their car, blogs by the bureau chief for Automobile Magazine, tips on how to stop distracted driving, even posts by a writer who describes great drives across the country.
If you love the CarTalk, you’ll love this blog.
