    [04x06] June 13th, 2004

    While I'm here, albeit temporarily, allow me to indulge in a bit of thread necromancy if you will (I turned 25 on the date of the last post, I am now 38, and this was by complete coincidence the oldest post in the sub-forum) because this episode has recently aired again on Dave. Probably not for...

    Top Gear Magazines - The Grand Giveaway

    Something else I could mention: I've also got all the Official F1 season reviews from 1981-2002 on VHS - and these all need to be cleared. Let's just say I've... made some arrangements, given that none of these ever had a DVD release. Some of the tapes are 1990s reissues (such as the 1981 and...

    Top Gear Magazines - The Grand Giveaway

    Seeing as it's been a long, long time since I was a regular member of this forum I have no idea if this thread will even work, if there's been a huge exodus since The Big Three left for Amazon, but if I don't ask, I won't get... I am clearing out my house, and among the junk I have three boxes...

    How to succeed Top Gear. Format ideas, presenters etc. (Assuming BBC wants to)

    I'm back. Five years away and I'm back, with an idea I've had spinning around in my head for a long time now, which always surfaces every time there's a "shock horror Top Gear is about to end" crisis. With that now all but a certainty, it's only fair that I share it with those who might be...

    I have grown a beard.

    It must be revived. Only I can't be bothered.

    Season 14 slid off track

    Yes. I am aware of all of those, including Barry Purkis' stage name. See that "rock family tree" in the liner notes of the quadruple-vinyl version of Best Of The Beast? I've had that since its release. ...you know what? Bollocks. I'm going to spoiler-protect the rest of this post because I...

    I have grown a beard.

    You may now officially post in the Man Thread. Where'd that go, anyway?

    Another Marina owners club thread...

    That would explain why I thought I'd seen it before - I'd just watched Duel and recognised the numberplate. But not I'll have to watch 14x03 again and look for the rear lights, because that'd give the game away. Which means I'll have to look at all those Lancias again. I'll go and get my drool...

    Or m??se antlers. They may come in useful for clearing a space through hordes of Christmas last minute shoppers.

    TATA Nano Europa - Full details

    Yes: my brother had one, and I never found it short of space. Neither did he, and he's two inches taller than me. That it was a 1978 model with a completely bare dashboard might have had something to do with it, but it never made me uncomfortable. Sounds very similar to what Daihatsu tried a...

    Season 14 slid off track

    I've had a sudden brainwave. Top Gear is actually Iron Maiden! Iron Maiden's first seven albums were brilliant. The production on their first effort was thin and weedy, but it still had all-time classic tunes on it. (Top Gear's equivalent of the weedy production was Jason Dawe). In the...

    TATA Nano Europa - Full details

    Even then, it still looks like it's on castors. Look at the Nano and the original Mini side by side (if the layout of the forum allows it): ...the Nano is too tall for those wheels. They're hideously out of proportion, in a way that the even smaller wheels on the Mini aren't. 21 days from...

    Post a pic of yourself

    Can I get one thing clear? Are either of you referring to the ear-gougingly ugly robot voice (possibly) pioneered by Cher and mercilessly ripped to shreds by an early episode of South Park, and for another example that "one more time we're gonna celebra-a-a-ate" bilge as written by someone I...
