    ^ No, got it.

    Yep.

    Cockney rhyming slang for 'queer', which means any person who likes a person of the same gender.

    When Clarkson called a car a 'bit ginger beer' a while back (Daihatsu Copen?) he meant it was for gay people, and he drew some flack for it.

    Down Low Gear in America (Large Pictures)

    TOP GEAR IN AMERICA! Again???

    Hey all new to the site.. I got news on Top Gear in America.. Today i got a call from a contact at a local hotel and thought I would follow up.. and to my amazement saw the following.




    I got the following half an hour later..







    James May (my favorite of the 3) was gracious enough to pose with my newborn daughter Alyssa!


    If you look at the light you will notice Jeremy in the Vette and the quarterpanel of the Challenger..


    One of the crew was kind enough to tell me they were heading to the Bonneville Salt Flats next in Utah.

    I very much doubt it, given that I've never revealed my taste in Yankeemobiles... or even if I have one. Although if you think that 2010 Camaro is a ginger beer car it's going to take a vast, vast amount of explanation.


    Wait a minute, you can't possibly be talking about that Vector...

    And the Salt Flats? Does that mean someone's going to try and break a land speed record again?

    I'd love to see that.
    They got 10k quid for Italian supercars. Why not $10k for US muclecars. How hard could it be?

    Could just be to see the top speed of the ZR-1 or maybe the CSC Ultimate Aero...

    Nice!!! The CTS-V!!! I wish it had a front end more in line with the standard CTS, rather than the old model...

    How predictable.... Hammond got the musclecar, and James got the 4door.

    Could also be that there wasn't a direct flight to Salt Lake City...there was another thread with photos of them in Nevada, on their way to the Salt Flats of Utah with a ZR1, a CTS-V and a Challenger SRT, I think.

    Is this a 2nd American road trip? Looking at the map around Reno, and in Utah there are some nice curvy roads there, maybe they will like this part of the country better. It will be interesting what they say about the CTS-V and ZR1 but the Challenger is a bit predictable; sounds good, fast in a straight line, classic styling, but cheap interior, too big and overweight. Can't wait to watch this episode, whatever it will be.

    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.
