i was a bit disappointed with the show. Thought maybe they can get more into the cars and really talked about why they were the most dangerous cars. (eventhough iz already know)

They basically smash them up like they usually do on the track.

I like it simply because of the stupid shit they do with the cars. Like when they had the GM cars and filled them with water before driving around the track.

My dad tells me stories about the corvair when he use to work at a chevy dealer in Geneva back in the 50's and early 60's. He almost quit because of that car.

LOL, he would probably use the same loving phrases for US Top Gear that he does for Porsche.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I am amused by the show and the stupid stuff they do. Yeah, some of it is childish -- like using the Samurai to tag the back bumper of the Pinto -- but it amuses me.

I had a Samurai and never had the tipover issues that made it so dangerous. Maybe it was the wider tires. Maybe it's because I didn't drive it like it was a Corvette. Tanner did okay with it until he was cornering half off the track.

Nail on head right there. Problem is alot of people think they can drive their high c/g suv like a sports car. They may get away with it for a while until it bites them in the ass one day.

Watched 5 min of the US version and turned it off.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.
