Welcome back to our weekly Automotive Follow Friday helper, letting you know who to follow on the wide world of Twitter. This week, we’re sliding over the foot stool so we can reach to top shelf of Twitter warriors. Follow these folks and supercharge your feed.
- K&N is like a professor of a large class in a small university. They teach Modding 101, and nobody gets their diploma without at some point having completed their course. Their unique, groundbreaking air filters use oil-soaked cotton rather than plain-ol’ paper, which makes them more efficient, more effective, and eternally reusable. K&N guarantees them for a million miles. Literally. But what they’re really known for these days are their cold air intakes. They dyno test them all and refuse to sell one unless it offers a horsepower improvement over stock. Follow them for the latest news on product releases and their extensive racing program.

Focusing mostly on Japanese beauties, and exclusively on unique and interesting customs, Speedhunters’ posts are jam-packed with high-resolution photos and detailed descriptions. Their posts just sortof stitch you back together. Keep up with all their incredible stuff on Twitter.

Ford Motor Company
- Even if you’re a GM or Mopar fan, you can’t deny that Ford has been killing it lately. The Fusion is stunning, the Focus and Fiesta ST are beating everything under the sun (on a budget), and the Mustang is about to emerge into the 21st century. And as always, the F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in America. They must be doing something right. Now if we could only get them to build a RWD Lincoln. Keep up with Dearborn on Twitter.

- The 1960s saw the era of car customizers as household names. Guys like George Barris and Dean Jeffries were known from sea to shining sea. Thanks to his unique eye, his cool show on Velocity, and his all around brilliant work, Chip Foose has become the preeminent American car designer, fabricator, illustrator, and customizer of our time. Perhaps we’re entering a new golden era of customs. All that said, follow Chip on Twitter.

Andy Sheehan is a blogger, aspiring novelist, and relentless hoon. He plans to will his 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon to his firstborn, plans his daily commute around the swoop of its roads, and doesn’t plan to ever buy an automatic. A cool-car omnipath, he loves the common Mustang or Chevelle, but hunts for the weird and wonderful Velorexes and Cosmos of the autoverse. And when he can afford a garage, he’s going to turn an MX-5 into a race car.
