Hey there! My name is Nick and I've been visiting the site for a while so figured I should join up and introduce myself. I'm from Canada, I'm a big Top Gear fan (I mean who isn't?), I love cars, and I love motorsports (F1, WRC, Le Mans, Touring car...) :)

Hello Everyone

Hello Everyone

It?s about time to stop lurking and simply waiting for the next episode of Top Gear and join in the fun.

Hello everyone, Final Gear has been my Top Gear resource for quite a while now, ever since season 9 or 10. Prior to religiously watching each episode, I rarely scoped out the forums besides from torrent updates or other news.

My first exposure to Top Gear, and eventually Final Gear, was through various You Tube clips with some middle aged British bloke rambling on about automobiles (the old Top Gear). He wasn?t slow and he wasn?t short, either. It wasn?t until seasons 9 and/or 10 that I started to get the entire episodes and see the full show from start to finish, rather than vehicle review tidbits. From that point it was essentially catching up on the first few seasons and starting on the new seasons just like everyone else.

My favorite TG episodes so far (a non exhaustive list) are usually the long road trip episodes including the gang?s two trips to the US ? first in the deep south (S09 x E03) and second trip starting out in the west coast filming their ?serious educational documentary?. The Aston Martin DB9 versus Train (S04 x E01), the trip to France in the super cars (S07 x E03), the Stelvio Pass (S10 X E01), and the Romania trip (S14 X E01), African road trip (S10 X E04) - you may start to see a general theme here.

Now for a bit about myself. I?m not a petrol head but I do enjoy cars in general. The look, the performance, the sound, and the essence of human kind using machinery are what attract me with some general idea of the engineering behind it.

My interest in Motorsport, and cars in general, only recently picked up after my passion for photography ? I?d say around 2007 or 2008. It?s an interest I think I?ll like to continue to pursue as it?s a general real world topic and good conversation starter that can lead to friendly debates.

Automobile shows including the commercial (dealership promoted events) and fun events (show and shine) are my field day to take photos. I?m not an expert at all, but I enjoy taking photos in general ? a shutterbug.

I occasionally have time for fun things (watching Top Gear) when I can find time from my job and night time college classes majoring in accounting.

Other interests include commercial and residential architecture and interior design, sensible practical fashion (an oxymoron), photography, light running/jogging when the weather permits, Toastmasters, and sim-racing (currently enjoying Forza 3).

Now onto the waiting game for the next Top Gear episode ? 5 days prior to Christmas.

Evening folks, apparently I've been a member here for just over 3 years, and could've sworn I had posted before, but apparently not, so - I am now.

I'm old enough to remember William Woollard's TG, but young enough to still be awake at 9pm on a Sunday... Love the site, always something to read and entertain. Still love TG, although the ideas are starting to run a bit thin in places - but it's still one of only 2 or 3 programmes I actually go out of my way to sit down and watch.

:happy:

Hi all,
Just found this site tonight. BIG TG fan (as I suspect, are many other girlies!) I have a 1990 Audi 100 (sucker for old cars) that's only starting to fail on some factory original components now, at 190,000 miles plus! It was my Husband's car and he was it's second owner (but he has his own wheels now) so between us we've owned it for about 15 years!
I'll be popping by as much as our two little ones will allow, time-wise! Nice to be among other 'petrolheads' and J.C fans, Jeremy for P.M! :)

Lol No worries! My first avatar choice was a rather cheeky shot of James in his leather gloves...I shall promptly change it to the afore mentioned glove shot...! Thanks for the heads up on the "not a dude" group...!
