Matt Farah is a popular YouTube star from New York who became famous for his automotive website where he reviews cars and for his YouTube channel.
He is an avid car lover and the owner of several unique cars which he often drives on the high way or off-road.
Matt was born as Matthew Farah, on December 1, 1981 in New York City. He was an avarage kid but was always fascinated with cars and vehicles.
After he graduated high school, he has decided to enroll the University and continue his education.
In 2004, Matt graduated with Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of Pennsylvania but he never worked in his niche.
It seems that he was obsessed with cars from a very early age. He stated in his interview that his grandmother said to him he could name cars looking at their wheels when he was 4 years old.
He has brought his first car as soon as he could and he has chosen a 1992 Lexus. He bought it from his dad and it was a 6 year old car. He paid $5000 for it although his parents had money. He wanted to show that he earns money too.
His father worked as the CEO for Ralph Lauren, the fashion magnat, so the family always had enough money.
During high school he has worked at “Foot Locker” because he was trying to earn money for a new car. This shows that he was raised to be a hardworking and respectful.
He worked there for six years and eventually saved for a car named Subaru Legacy, which looked like a sports car.
He sold it in 1998 because he wanted to buy something more interesting. He bought a Mustang after it and a lot of his friends from high school drove cars at that time.
He went to Englishtown almost every week alongside his friends, and they drag-raced there when ever they found time.
When he entered the University of Philadelphia, Matt sold his cars because of the bad roads in it. He bought an SUV to enjoy driving more.
After this SUV, his next car was a res C5 Corvette which he still has. Other cars he owned are Audi S4 and a Hummer H1 which he disliked a lot.
After he started working at a rental car company, called “Gotham Dream Cars” he lived in Manhattan. His next car was a Mini and he sold it when he moved to California. He needed the money to start his “The Smoking Tire” project.
After that he decided to buy a truck so ge had chosen the Ford Raptor which was huge. After he moved to Venice he had to sell it because it couldn’t fit his garage and he has no parkingspace either. That is when he bought a Chevy Volt.
Matt always wanted to share his knowledge about cars so he created his own website calles “The Smoking Tire”. Hia own show has this same name.
He is also employed as an actor in “The Car Show” which is airing on Speed Channel.
His dream car he wants to own is McLaren F1 and Porsche Carrera GT but those are extremely expensive cars to own.
His first car was the one his mother gave to him, a 1996 Mercury Village.
He loves to drive cars off road and this way he wracked and destroyed a lot of cars.
Matt appeared in a few series such as Bullrun III, The Car Show and Car of the Year.
His first TV appearance was in Bullrun in 2010. The Car Show came in 2011.
He also appeared in The Joe Rogan Experience, once in Matt Farah & Alex Ross duo, and after that Matt Farah & Todd Mesirow. That was in 2013/2014.
In 2015, he again joined Car of the Year. In 2017, he became a host of a TV show “Drive”.
He drives a Yamaha Zuma 125 Scooter which is not his first choice since he loves cars but he claims that the roads are so bad that he can not think of another way of going to work.
He has pets, a black & white cat named Conrad and a brown Axel, whom he learned a lot of tricks.
Matt often posts photos of the cats on his Instagram account.
He currently lives with his fiancee Hanna who moved into his house. They are planning their wedding which will happen on April 20, 2019.

Matt has a sister Alexis and he often mentions her on social media. Alexis is a beauty writer and social media guru, and works for a cosmetic company.
