How close you came to a disastrous name. I don't think GearDownloads.com would have made the same traction as analgear.com.

ESPNSTi is still active and Renesis still posts here occasionally.

Holy crap I can't believe I've been a member here for seven years. Wow. I still remember watching the Ford GT review that led me to finding this website (thank you whoever posted a link here on the Top Gear Wikipedia page).

First TG-related video I saw was a Clarkson video where he takes a ride with Valentino Balboni in a Diablo and in the beggining it had a link to Viper's site :lol:

First forum I ever joined and also the best, I have to say.

I'm starting to like finalgear.com, but my only issue with it is that it kinda sounds like it's the last show or something.
Yet here we all still are. Well some of us at least.

Oh man, imagine if he'd picked the wrong name. We could have all ended up at JabbasPalace.com or whatever that other site that did lo-fi TG rips was called.

I was gonna post about Jabba too. Remember he put some shit about "hailing the mighty jabba" on all his videos and the resolution was awful. This place was a godsend.

Considering I only joined 2 years after this I had no idea that it went to a vote :lol: Finalgear just always seemed like a good name.

Seriously though - Top5Gears.com? What is this; 2004? Oh...

Jabbas videos were unskippable. Yet, at the time it was the only thing we had.

Jabba was the first thing I ever hated on the internets
