    EOI: Adelaide (South Australia) Meet / Come And Try Hillclimb

    Hi fellow Adelaidian FGers. I'm seriously considering going to a Come And Try Hillclimb day in April (date TBA, will confirm with SCCSA), but I haven't been able to rope in anyone I know IRL to try and get their daily driver or spare beater up a hill as quickly as possible. Then it occurred to...

    Now Ewen's saying they're back next year...

    I wonder if Ben Elton will be one of the stars in the ute in Series 4? :lol:

    Research suggests higher speed limits may mean safer roads!

    Funny how this went completely unnoticed in the Australia media. :| I concur with the article. I find that I'm a lot more alert when doing 150km/h than I am at 110km/h. In a modern car, 110km/h feels a lot slower than it is, therefore one becomes bored and complacent. I suspect that crashes...

    I'm surprised anyone could tell the difference.

    Imported From Detroit

    So much great music has come from Detroit over the years; WTF were Chrysler thinking by using one of the worst? I'm guessing the reason they used Eminem is because The White Stripes just broke up.

    TBH, the "Bentley" is what made the Albanian film so awesome. Had the REAL Bentley turned up, the film would have still been good ... but it wouldn't have been as good. Sure, the Albanian Rozzers made those Aveos dance (and the Motorbike Cop with the ciggie in his mouth made me ROFL, you...

    The Albanian film was a lot of fun, especially the last 5 minutes. It was an enjoyable story, and the Bentley provided endless mirth. News was a bit meh. Subaru Cossie vs Focus RS500 vs that Volvo thing seemed a little 'same old same old' too. Jonathan Ross pisses me off. Big time. He...

    The who have Top Gear insulted this week thread

    I can't take the Coogan article seriously. Firstly, I keep hearing Alan Partridge's voice every time I read it. Secondly, I went to see his last live show. Alan Partridge was brilliant; the rest of it was horribly past its use-by date. To act as some great moral crusader when the final act...

    Autoblog: Hyundai says "Hey 2billion, you should buy a car from us next time" with Veloster.

    Looks tasty from the side. The back looks pretty sweet if a little fussy. The front has just way too much happening. Other than that, if it drives anything like a 1st Gen CR-X (which is the first thing I thought of when I saw it), and is reasonably priced, then Hyundai could have a winner on...

    James day on Dave.

    Nice. Would be even better if they changed their name to 'James' just for the day, but you can't have everything. :P

    Autoblog: Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio coupe enters production with Saudi investment

    Nothing says 'Fuck you, peasants!' quite like a (surprisingly exquisite) Maybach coupe.

    Jezza made ?850,000 on top of his BBC salary

    I was going to say that I'm sure I'd read this before. Oh, that's right, it wasn't the Daily Fail that had a crack at Clarkson's business arrangements last time; it was The Guardian.

    [16x00] December 26th, 2010 [Middle East Special]

    There's a reason why I don't normally give TG 10/10 ... it's because I wanted to save this score for something special. Such as this episode. It was very poignant in parts, and it was very educational in others. The Middle East really is a lovely place filled with great people, but those of...

    2011 Ford Territory teaser pics + spy

    You can usually tell how bad a Terrortry or Craptiva driver is by the number of My Family stickers on the back window. As for the new model ... that front end is bloody awful. It looks like a fish with braces. :barf:

    Why TGA is much worse than TGUK

    The reason TGA now sucks sweaty nutsacks (whereas back on SBS, it didn't) is because of Channel Nein. FFS, these cocksmokers are STILL pushing the Shane Warne thing: :shakefist: Just when you think Nein...
