That was great. Mine is the Bugatti Veyron when he races the plane, and is calling insurance companies to find that none of them will insure the car lol. I also like the abuse they give to a Toyota truck and find it to still run !

.... wasn't there already a thread like this?

And if i had to pick a favorite.... i think it'd be a tossup between the Koenigsegg (or however it's spelled), and the Lotus vs. Apache

YouTube - Koenigsegg CCX Review

YouTube - BBC: Lotus Exige Car Review with Apache Helicopter Gunship - Top Gear

freakin LOVE the Exige.... and the Evora is sharp, too.

Actuall saw a new style Lotus Elise right here in Lehighton a few years back. Yes.... Lehighton, PA. Look it up on Google Earth/Maps. You'd NEVER expect to see such a car here.... EVER.

ps

why don't we have the youtube extension for the vb that encodes the embed automatically when you paste the link?

it works with most flash embeds so I think we should get that extension

Bugatti vs plane is one of many that I liked.

I think it's worth mentioning Top Gear Specials, such the African Desert episode, as a separate list to that of the normal episodes. :)

I know how to do it johnny, I didn't do it on purpose to make my point

there is an extension for the vb board, once installed all you have to do is paste in the link and the board creates the imbed tags

this is an old extension and we should have had it by now

As much as our international members seem to be loving top gear more and more, I just can't get over how fake it all is now. Every week there is something in there that just takes it too far.

I still watch it of course ;)

My favorite is the Vietnam Special, love that episode. But then I love every episode. Top Gear is the greatest show on earth. Too Bad Youtube took down all my uploads had like a couple million views of lots of Top Gear episodes (including the vietnam special)

I love a lot of the top gear episodes posted, the Peel P50 had me laughing out loud because of the crazy stuff they do with it!

most episodes are nice
Yea, they do them well. Just watched one from the current season. The one where Hamster keeps having to have Picnics :p They are so friggin hilarious, which is why I think the American Top Gear will fail. I think if it had had Adam Carolla like it originally was planned to have it would be much better although never as good.

I watch it on BBC America every Tuesday at 12:00 am. It is a great show. I really enjoy.

Oh cool,
Man... I love Top Gear, every special is great like Bolivia or the Polar Special, and as I said, my favorite is the Vietnam special. This years season ended really quick though, and I may be mistaken but they didn't even tell us it was over did they?

I do know what your saying. Didn't really think about it til you mentioned it.


Edit: Kinda expected to see the USA version coming out this fall but I don't think it will compare to the current UK one. Also Im disappointed that none of season 15 has been shown on bbc america :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
