    [22x03] February 8th, 2015

    Sniff Petrol had a brilliant idea the other day: With Top Gear back on BBC2 this Sunday, car forum RevWheel has taken the unusual step of getting its discussion thread about the programme out of the way in advance. ?We decided it would be quicker and easier to get the Top Gear thread done...

    This site is a decade old later this month

    I don't remember how I found out about Top Gear and Fifth Gear, but it was back in 2004. I stumbled upon Final Gear and have been forever thankful for the service it provides to the whole world, not just the US audience. Above all else, it brought many people together and helped to form strong...

    Christmas DVD 2013

    I feel for Jeremy and rest of the group, it's not very easy to operate on a tight schedule and stay focused when every single second you are occupied by the fans. They're professionals though, so I'm certain they have learned how to buckle down. Good to see the Tifosi being strong TG fans.

    Fantastic news! The 2014 MY worst car in the world has been reviewed!

    Oh and also for thick headed...to clarify further, there is no White House obsession...I mentioned Ari Fleisher (former WH PS) because he was classic at taking a viewpoint, no matter how valid it was, and then spinning it in a manner discrediting the person who presented it.

    Fantastic news! The 2014 MY worst car in the world has been reviewed!

    I've met quite a number of Germans, as I have been friends with, drank with, worked with, and never once have I met a German I didn't like. So generalization derived from my personal experience? I wouldn't say it's a generalization, more like a long-term observation. I think I'm smart enough to...

    Fantastic news! The 2014 MY worst car in the world has been reviewed!

    Really? That's the definition of a troll? No dude, I was not backing away from my post at all, I was merely reiterating and dumbing down what I was referring to in simplest terms that everything you, your buddy Frank and other 12 year olds could comprehend. Just because you didn't get the point...

    I advise to lower the level of sensitivity and raise the level of intellectual curiosity. Don't take everything so literally.

    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    I like this exemplary response. When something is done wrong the responsible party tries to correct the situation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-23930675

    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    In fairness to Britain though, I believe that today the business community is a lot more competent than they were in 70s, 80s, 90s.

    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    I understand Clarkson's point, but there are major differences between the point of TG episode vs. the documentary.

    Fantastic news! The 2014 MY worst car in the world has been reviewed!

    Agreed. Whole point of this post was expressing my opinion of what Corolla embodies from a human lifestyle, cultural, social observation regard rather than to say that it's bad in literal terms. I know the quality is there, but that's where it all stops, and if one wants quality then there are...

    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    Perhaps the message of the documentary was that, especially in the end, while Britain still manufacturers car, the actual ownership of plants belongs to foreigners, such as VW, BMW, Tata Motors and so forth.

    BBC Documentary - Das Auto The Germans Their Cars and Us

    Excellent documentary which I just finished watching on BBC World - it discusses the rise and eventual domination by the German car manufacturers and also compares their success to the British automotive industry's hardships, especially in the 70s. Very interesting video, I appreciate its...

    Also, holy wheel gap! You could fit another Corolla in there. Also does anyone else think this thing looks like a Roewe MG6 at the front?

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    We have it unfairly easy in Michigan when it comes to boat storage during winter months. An employee will navigate the yacht towards a crane, raise it out of the water, a marina will send out an F-250, which will drive for 0.125 miles, and then tow the yacht another 0.125 miles towards to a...
