I have a real soft spot for the Top Gear episodes where our boys have to buy a cheap car and do something awful to it (make it a limo, drive it across the English Channel, tape eggs to the ceiling and drive over bumpy road). It brings out the competitive spirit in the mad trio, and there’s little in this world more entertaining than that. Tonight’s new (to the US) episode challenges Jeremy, The Hamster, and Captain Slow to buy a two-door coupe for under $3000 (tune in for conversion to pounds…which is sadly [for me] not very hard these days). Inexplicable challenges–and much pointing and laughing at each other–are likely to follow. Episode airs on BBC America.
