    they just raced 3 old beefed up pickups to a glacier in alaska, an old ram, chevy stepside, & the f150 was the oldest i think. they also had to camp out & sleep in them. they beat the fuck out of those trucks & had a good time doing it.:cool:

    Which TopGear, the good one or the shitty American knockoff? Tanner Foust is a douche.

    BBC Top Gear is fantastic. I'm not even "into" cars and love the entertainment of that show. I loved it when they traveled through Southeast Asia and also the US. They certainly do have some of the best jobs out there! :)

    If you enjoy the American one, watch the BBC version and you'll love it.

    The personality of the 3 Brits is tenfold of that of their American counterparts.
