    This just keeps getting better. They keep using cars I have owned. First a 300ZX Z31, now a beat up Fiero rebody (tho mine didn't have that body obviously). I love seeing people hoon things that I can hoon. Apart from that, a generally normal episode. I don't get nearly as excited when they...

    Odd, thats exactly why I did like it. I'd rather watch a Top Gear show for cars. Not mountain bikers/parachuters/skiers. And thats saying something this time around because I used to do downhill mountain biking. The whole time, my friend kept saying "No way! My 90 CRX DX is faster than that...

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

    Just gotta say for some reason this just didn't work for me. Probably the most boring Top Gear I've ever seen. Saw the Stig at the end coming a mile away and honestly, I enjoyed this weeks Top Gear US more than the special, sadly. No real challenges, just messing about. Only reason it didn't...

    Shopping for headlight bulbs

    Had to remove the whole front bumper and grille on the Escape to change em. At least for the turn signals. Also the best bulbs I ever had were Sylvania's "Cool Blue". They weren't really blue but came off as a nice brilliant white that you could see with more clearly than their more expensive...

    Car Speakers - What's good value?

    Granted Xplod speakers aren't great but as an upgrade from older stock speakers, they are pretty good for the price. And I've never had anything but good experiences from their head units and amplifiers (but I've always sprung for their more expensive options).

    Wow, probably be a good battle then. Although from managing an auto parts store, I've never seen anything but heartache and issues from Dodge trucks from the mid 1970s on. Chevy has a good engine setup for them if they can keep em running, but that time period had a lot of em down on power a...

    Wanna see a Nissan Titan or Toyota truck in this. And a Ford/Chevy Battle as well.

    Hopefully the style in which it runs over Bret Michaels.

    I have to echo this to the letter. Always thought Tim Allen and Christoper Titus were shoe-ins for Top Gear of any kind. I bet the interview will be awesome.

    [15x07] December 21st, 2010 [Special]

    OK I think we all can tell you are actually Richard Hammond on this board, trolling under a fake name. Anyway, now that the rodent has been put down, its time for me to express my opinions on the greatest episode... in the world. Apart from a few foibles with the news, and hair that made May...

    Cars I want to see on Top Gear: America...

    To be honest, I think its good to show the world that we like our cars, but I don't want this to be the muscle car hour. I'd rather see some more rare cars in the states so that people here get to see new and unique things and learn a bit more about car culture in general, instead of "so this...

    At least I know who Kid Rock is. Last episode I had no clue, and there are a couple Kid Rock songs I even like. Not many though. His latest Sweet Home Alabama/Werewolves of London mashup was an atrocity. Way to rhyme "things" with "things" there, paco. Seems like he would be one to flog the crap...

    Loved it! The cheap car challenges are my favorite part of Top Gear, for any country. Plus I feel a bit more proud of my car now. :) Chemistry still coming along nicely, improving bit by bit. They are starting to loosen up and some of the anti-PC-ness seems to be growing. Never was a fan of...

    A Forum Star In A Reasonably Priced Car [Suzuki Swift, flying start]

    Top Gear's journey from Georgia to Israel (also: Iraq)

    All I can say is good freakin luck, Clarkson. I'm not sure the year of the Miata or the actual size of the Clarkson, but when I test drove an 89 Miata, my 6'3 250lb self could barely fit my knees under the steering wheel with the seat back all the way, and I had to take the top down because my...

    Well finally I get to see the exact type of car I have in a Top Gear. Thats a major victory for me in any case. Well, apart from... the UK one where they made police cars and I owned a Suzuki Sidekick/Vitara/Tracer/Escudo and Richard got one that looked like a pride-mobile.

    Was hoping the moonshiner challenge I keep hearing about would be in this one but no dice I guess. I'll still tune in. It will be cool to see how the hosts progress.

    Top Gear Apocalypse DVD

    Honestly, it was OK, but I found I got more enjoyment out of TG:USA's 1st episode. This DVD is like a cartoon, an obvious one. You can tell everything thats going to happen, it leaves you going "no, they seriously aren't going to... thats so cheezy... welp I suppose they DID do it *sigh*"

    I still say Adam Corolla, Tim Allen and Christopher Titus would be the ultimate trio for hosting this.

    [01x01] November 21st, 2010

    My apologies. But that also goes to show, along with my poor memory, the fact that the interview was nearly non-existent. It doesn't really bother me that much, as SIARPC is my least favorite section of TG:UK. Also, the people that are saying this first episode was horrible and they won't be...
