Top Gear coming to America

It just came out that November 21st on the History Channel is the premier of Top Gear in America. It's a spin off of the very popular British show which talks all about cars.

Top Gear is that it's an awesomely funny show on the BBC, it's up to 17 seasons and has 350 million viewers per episode world wide.

Some of my favorite episodes include things like:

  • Driving across Africa in a $500 car
  • Drive to the North Pole in a truck (the first people to ever do it)
  • Homemade electric car
  • Turning a car into a boat (the best out of the 3 they made is the one below, the TOYbOTA)

If you want to know the most economic Chevrolet for 2011, don't watch. But if you want the know whether the Maclaren F1 is faster than the Bugatti Veyron, or if you have $1000 and need to buy a car to drive across South America then this is the show for you.

The thing that makes the show so great is the 3 hosts. If the new hosts of the American Top Gear are even half as funny then it will be worth watching.


New TV Show?

Back in October i was driving by I-75 and the Davison freeway, through an industrial park and i saw people filming a movie or tv show. It's not the best picture, i took it while i was driving. Right next door there were tons of trailers and semi's with filming equipment in them.
The cameras weren't there yet but they had the green boards set up to look like columns or something. If it's for a tv show it might be that Detroit 187 show??
