    Um... electric cars don't have exhaust systems.

    A friend of my brother has one of those. My brother drove it on the historic Watkins Glen road course.

    I think I agree with you: the only "real" Top Gear was the one with Clarkson, Hammond, and May.

    I watched an episode after those guys were gone, and it was just as bad the one with the three American clowns.

    If you drive a 78 Ford F-250 extended cab long bed bought 2nd hand from the Border Patrol, all them there fancy cars will get out of your way. Must be the pea green color, or maybe the likeness to a 3 ton battering ram. Oil change is $25, takes 20 minutes.

    Matt LeBlanc was pretty good, but the others have all been pretty awful. (Except Sabine Schmitz.)

    I moved to London in the summer of ‘78, June 3 to be exact. I arrived early in the day and later my new step brother took me to Regents Park because I’d always wanted to see it. Along the way from Golders Green to the park I counted 33 Rolls Royces! First I had ever seen in person.

    .

    When seeing those types of cars: Tickets and ludicrous gear grinding by their owners.
    Ridiculous conspicuous consumption.






    They are all limited by those pesky speed signs.

    Legend has it that, back in the day, Mr. Bugatti was being taken to task for the poor performance of the braking system in his cars.
    His response?

    We get a lot of Ferraris and Bentleys out here. The Ferraris mostly only venture out when the weather is perfect. I don't know where they go, because you almost never see them head somewhere where there would be any traffic. Even if you have good enough roads, can you really learn to drive a performance car if you only take it out 2 or 3 times a year?

    My daughter used to see the Bugattis all the time when she was in SoCal. At least there you can drive somewhere where you can be seen, which has to be 99% of the point.

    McLarens are defiantly badass... and as for the 21,000.00 oil change... a few years back I had decided to treat myself to a once in a life time motorcar... So.. I did a little research... it seems pretty much ALL the used versions only had a few thousand miles.... the reason it seems.... a set of tires 6000.00. . . new clutch etc.. 18,000.00 . . if ya drive day to day you replace both the tires and clutch once a year..

    Jeez I wonder.. I didn't even think to check on the oil change... anyway. I decided against it, and just got another Bimmer instead, which is bad enough.. that was a couple of cars back...

    anyway... they routinely have the Bugatti flagship at Amelia every year... a hellova car.... I wonder what insurance on that bad boy would set ya back... but.. all thing considered...If I had a million to throw away on a Supercar.. I'd go for the Ferrari... I mean.. every one loves a cute little Fiat .. right... and the VW can . . well. I never really cared for WVs.. despite what name they choose... :p

    Oh.. here's an interesting factoid for those that wanna "car" like the Millionaires drive... the number one "ride" selected by those making a Million or more, is.. taaaa daaaa... the Ford F-250 pickup.. like is asked.. How do ya think a man like "me" got to be a man like me...

    Remember, Sam Walton drove a 70 something Plymouth until the day he passed on..

    when I moved in here in Brixton my Audi seemed a bit posh. Now my neighbour has a new Bentley Continental…. And a Range Rover (for the dog, obviously).

    I still have my old Audi. Which is definitely a blight on the street these days being over 17 years old.


    I can only assume he is a mate of Hancock.

    One of the guys I play with every week is an exotic car collector/trader. I got a ride in his Spider 458. What an experience. It's impossible to describe the acceleration, what a thrill.

    Like this one:

    The exhaust should have been a dead giveaway.

    Two Vs for a W16. And if it's the Divo, something closer to 1500hp. Pure madness.
