List Criteria: No planes or trains on this list. It's all about the automobiles.

The very best car shows on television, ranked from best to worst by hot rod fanatics like you. This list of the greatest car TV shows is a compilation of all the best car repair shows, the top factual car shows, the best sitcoms featuring cars, and the greatest DIY car shows. Automotive TV series have been a television staple for years, so there are plenty of great car TV shows to choose from when selecting what you consider to be the best car TV show. This list of the top car TV programs is made up of long-running car series like (British favorite) "Top Gear" and "Wrecked" – "Life In The Crash Lane" as well as car related sitcoms like "Car 54, Where Are You?" and "Home Improvement." 

What are the top TV shows about cars? What are the most informative car shows? What are the most entertaining car shows? Since this list is ranked best to worst by other car TV show enthusiasts like you, it should be a good staring point to answer those questions. If you don't see your favorite car TV show on the list, make sure to add it to this list of the greatest automotive series.

If all this car talk has you in the mood to look at more cars, skip the Netflix binge session, and first check out the worst cars ever (which have probably been featured in some kind of "Top Gear" demolition derby at some point) and the worst race car crashes of all time to see what they likely looked like after.
