    [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...

    Post a pic of yourself

    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...

    [14x04] December 6th, 2009

    And at this point I'd like to say a huge "cheers" to Dave for showing a Fifth Gear episode where a stuntman attempted to loop the loop with a Toyota Aygo. He made it... but only just; the Aygo was a fraction of a second from falling off. The exact speed needed to get it right without demolishing...

    Unveiled: 2010 VW Amarok

    Never mind the pickup... :clarkson: ...don't forget the TVR Valhalla! Although, realistically, that's a name Koenigsegg should have had. Especially if it's going to throw you into a tree and burnt into flames. It's a unique selling point. "Comes complete with its own Viking funeral!" In the...

    Coolest taillights ever

    One more vote for those. And a special mention for the most recent Gallardo that has used the same layout, just not quite as bonkers. Definitely with you on that one. Now, I know my cars, but I've still been tricked into thinking a Jaguar XF was an Aston from a way off when I saw it from...

    Or, maybe, "get in a Mercedes and hope your child is a girl." It works - I was at school with a Mercedes, and I'm not talking about the teachers' car park. In fact, there are quite a few cars that you could get in and hope for a girl. An Alfa Romeo Giulia, for instance (though your future...

    [14x03] November 29th, 2009

    Now, I don't usually comment on TG episodes these days, having long since given up on the "WORST EPISODE EVER!" versus "THIS IS BRILLIANT I'LL GIVE IT A 10!" hyperbole that has pervaded every single one of these threads for the last five series, but there's a good reason this episode meant...
