In this episode, you’ll get a chance to meet one of the most interesting and detail-oriented car enthusiasts on YouTube. Matt Moreman is the founder of Obsessed Garage and is building a lifestyle brand for car enthusiasts and gear-heads alike. Over the past few years he has amassed over 21,000 followers on his YouTube Channel and he’s just getting started.
In addition to talking about some of his incredible cars, Matt also is an expert-level auto detailer and shares his love of DIY projects and hobbies with his audience on a weekly basis through YouTube and his personal website, www.ObsessedGarage.com.
This episode is very introspective and we spend a good chunk of time diving deep into the man behind the garage to help set the stage for a fun and lively conversation about Matt’s cars (Porsche 911 GT3, BMW M3) and we discuss several trends in the enthusiast automotive space. We also help out a friend who’s looking for recommendations on a fun weekend car.
