    My Cars: 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 convertible (summer weekend car), 2001 Ford Mustang GT coupe (winter car & grocery getter)
    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.

          Somewhere in there, they're going to have a week off in December for whatever reason, from the looks of things.

The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

            They probably have a week off for the snooker on the 13th Dec.

              Radio Times have put up synopsis:

              Motoring news and views. Jeremy Clarkson travels to Belfast to conduct a test of the Renaultsport Twingo 133 involving a tunnel, a ferry and the actor Ross Kemp. Meanwhile Richard Hammond investigates ways to speed up summer holidays as he invents the new sport of airport vehicle racing. James May tests the new Vauxhall Insignia VXR in the company of British road signs designer Margaret Calvert, and Jeremy is on and off the track in the BMW X5M, Audi Q7 V12, and the latest supercharged Range Rover.

                Airdate December 6, 2009, with a start time of 8:30 pm. (Before that is an encore of James May on the Moon.)

                          I thought so. I was just watching it the other day.

                          Anyway, on paper it looks meh, but I hope it's good.

                            Man, this sounds like it could be an episode from 5 years ago!

                            James May with a senior citizen, check. (Calvert's in her mid-70s)
                            Richard Hammond and his rally car drivers making a grand mess of things, check.
                            A three-way car review with Clarkson, check.

                            By the way, the guest this week is Guy Ritchie, who
                            a) directed one of the best films of all time -- Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,
                            c) directed the upcoming Sherlock Holmes film, which is probably what he's going to be plugging,
                            b) was married to Madonna until just recently
                            Richard Hammond narrowly escaped death in 2006 when he crashed a jet-propelled car he was driving for British motoring programme Top Gear.

                              Sounds like a well balanced episode.

                                Quite a packed show it seems. Sounds good!

                                  Yeah, this looks quite promising. Fingers crossed!

                                    Please be correct - that was a better show than TG! Cabbi is my new American 'hero' friend too.
