    No series 16 until next year

    I'm ok with this. Sure it sucks to have to wait but November and December are usually busy months anyway. I would rather have them to look forward to in January and February when things are bleak and depressing. Cheer up those months a bit.

    If you're reading an article from today then the RSS is down. Neither my comp or phone is picking it up.

    Not to advocate anything against the rules but I would imagine there will be ways to get the articles. When did this start? I'm still getting RSS feeds for it oddly enough.

    TG USA Coming to My Hometown!

    Don't hold back, tell me how you really feel. Like I said, I knew it would happen, I don't mind it happening. I just wanted a little more time for my own reasons. Btw, make up your mind, am I an idiot or a douche?

    TG USA Coming to My Hometown!

    Yeah, I knew it would happen, I'm not that naive :) I was just hoping it wouldn't happen that fast! Thanks for the compliments. My biggest regret is not taking the nice camera. I just didn't expect to get that close and I didn't want to have to worry about lugging it around all day. In other...

    TG USA Coming to My Hometown!

    Yeah, suppose it was pretty naive to hope this would remain quiet for a while. I'm not really worried about the History channel getting pissed. The guys were just so cool about letting us video and take pictures that I wouldn't want to ruin it for people in the future. Oh well. I did post it on...

    They're showing fine on mine and from my phone. Let me see what I can figure out. Are the vids working? Can someone else report in on this?

    TG USA Coming to My Hometown!

    Finally everyone gathered in a backlot where we got to spend some time talking with the guys. I feel a lot better about this show after seeing two of the personalities interact. They're very cordial and fun to be around. We spent about 45 minutes talking cars, Top Gear, local landmarks, and just...

    So then filming took a break for lunch and about an hour later it resumed downtown. We first went atop the parking deck for the courthouse and got some great flyovers from the Cobra: I know this vid is longer but wait it out till the end for the best one: ZF--InL3pIk This video is from them...

    Apparently some old cat who lives out by the airport has two Ford GT's which he volunteered for film cars. While the guy himself was an idiot his cars were very nice!! The second picture was taken moments before he drove it over the curb it's parked next to and scratched the hell out of...

    Then something great happened. A friend of mine knows the city planner so he came out and we got to meet Rutledge and Tanner. They are both very nice guys and quite funny!! I also snagged this which should dispel any rumors that our version will be called "Gear" instead of "Top Gear"

There's a lot of content so please wait to post comments for me to get it all up. I also took great care to avoid putting the words Top Gear into the Youtube videos as I...

    TG USA Coming to My Hometown!

    My city counsel just released this: "A film crew will be in Griffin on Tues., 5/4 and Wed., 5/5 to film an episode of ?Top Gear?, a cable TV show. The shoot involves a sports car and a military helicopter. Please do not be alarmed at the presence of helicopters flying over the city. Scenes will...

    Rental Car Roulette

    Well, since my car is a 97 Miata and they needed something comparable they skipped over words like "convertible" "rear wheel drive" and "sports" and based comparable purely on lack of man points.

    Rental Car Roulette

    Well, maybe it's not quite as bad as the Marina but without ABS and with tiny wheels it's one of the more unruly and scary rides I've ever driven. Not to mention with the pedal to the floor it can't reach the 6K redline. Then, to add further insult, when it does finally shift it drops back down...

    Rental Car Roulette

    While my poor car is in the shop I lost the Rental Car Roulette. I ended up with a PT Cruiser. Instantly upon driving it out of the lot I remembered a quote that fit the occasion that I thought you guys might recognize. "I'll guarantee that nothing exciting, vibrant, dynamic, new, creative...
