In the age of Rodrigo Duterte and Donald Trump, social media has never been more toxic. Fake news, flat-out lies and hateful comments now drown everything else in your news feed. But while you sometimes think of leaving Facebook and Twitter for good on account of these, the truth is that you need to stay connected—either because your work requires you to, or your relatives expect you to. Guess you just have to roll with it.
Thankfully, there are other social-media platforms that are not soul-sapping. For those moments when you simply want to mindlessly browse through fun content, there’s Instagram, for one. Photos after carefully filtered photos are uploaded by the second, all yours to appreciate.
And Instagram also happens to be a good place to see jaw-dropping car photos, posted by like-minded speed freaks who live and breathe automobiles. Guys like Jay Leno, Elon Musk and Jerry Seinfeld are a breath of fresh air in this generation of trolls.
Here, we list down our 12 favorite Instagram accounts that consistently deliver entertaining car images, including a pair of local ones. And in case you didn’t know, your favorite trio from the old Top Gear TV show are back with The Grand Tour, which now also has its own Instagram presence.
So if you have the popular app on your mobile phone, be sure to check these out if you haven’t been following them already. We guarantee a welcome break from all those depressing news about drug lords and unrepentant plunderers. Enjoy.
