    [01x08] December 31st, 2016 [Namibia Special, Part 2]

    Did not flow as well as the first part. The "pranks" (tents, poaching, James' car catching fire) felt unnatural and detracted from the flow of the journey and from the cars. I was excited after the first part, which had more of a "epic journey" feel like the old Botswana and Vietnam Top Gear...

    Amazon Prime Video available worldwide before 2017

    Part 1 of the beach buggy special had the bit at the end with Hammond and May drinking beers cut out, which is completely ridiculous.

    How Many Cars Have You Driven?

    Got my licence about 3 years ago. Here's my list so far, with comments: Family cars: 1962 Fiat 1100 - A very conventional 50's style sedan but drives very nicely. I love the four-speed column shifter, very smooth and fun to shift. 1963 VW Beetle 1200 - Our first classic. More precise and...

    Ninjacoco wins fuel light bingo

    Most of my family's cars have unreliable gas gauges. Our VW Bus for example has a completely hacked-up fuel sender and gauge which only works between half-full and full :lol:

    [21x06] March 9th, 2014 [Burma Special, Part 1]

    I was disappointed with episodes 1 & 2 but this was properly good. Loved the soviet submarine base!

    Ownership Verified: 1984 Suzuki SS80/Maruti 800

    It can cruise at 100kph all right. The car is extremely light so 37hp is fine! It's rolled over just once. There is bit of rust, and the paint is completely flaking off so it will have to scraped down and repainted..I'll get detailed pictures when we start with the bodywork...
