I first discovered Common Automotive Critiques throughout my freshman yr of Faculty at Penn State all the way in which again in 2015. The duo of Mr. Common and The Roman instantly caught my consideration by displaying me that automobiles can be enjoyable. (Sure, I do know I write for Jalopnik now, and it’s undoubtedly a enjoyable publication, however I wasn’t a reader on the time. Sue me).
Anyway, I fell in love with the enjoyment (and bathroom humor) they delivered to automobile evaluations. I began consuming nearly all of the content material they put out, the podcasts, the RCR deep dives, the weekly movies, and the music. All the things. I used to be hooked, and I nonetheless am right this moment. If I’m being trustworthy, they’re nearly the one automotive YouTube channel I nonetheless watch.
One thing else I’ve all the time beloved about RCR is how unabashedly Pennsylvania they’re. I could not have grown up within the state, however I spent 4 of my most youth smack dab in the midst of it. I met my girlfriend there, and now we’re in NEPA nearly each month. It’s actually a second dwelling to me. Not many automobile reviewers are from that neck of the woods, and it offers them a unique perspective from the LA, New York and Detroit based mostly journalists who dominate the trade.
However, I digress. I assumed now could be nearly as good a time as ever to look again on a few of my favourite Common Automotive Overview episodes in no explicit order – save for the ultimate video, which is certainly my favourite.
