So, who has the biggest Facebook following in the hot rod world? Thought I’d do some informal research on the subject for my own satisfaction. When I say informal, I’m using my own interpretation of who or what is a hot rod site.
For example, I’m not including West Coast Customs’ 92,023 followers or DUB magazine’s 14,389 or the 5,929 that follow Jay Leno’s Garage. And it might be argued that Viva Las Vegas is more lifestyle oriented, but in my mind it’s very hot rod focused. This is my Top 25 List and the results (compiled today) were interesting. Cool to see long-time T-Bucket kit and component supplier, Speedway Motors, at the top of the list.

Oh, I also didn’t include sites that were drag racing specific — and that’s a point that can be debated, too.
I’m sure there are pages I’ve missed, so please comment and let me know what you think should be added.
