60 minutes tries To get The Stig to talk while driving a Camaro

Preview: "Top Gear" and the Stig


Quote:
The hit BBC TV show "Top Gear" has a silent cast member, known as "the Stig." Steve Kroft tried to get him to break his silence during a wild ride. 60 Minutes, Sunday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Looks to be an interesting story on 60 minutes

I am sorry - but when Stig gives the comentator that look, I just absolutely lost it and laughed my a$$ off. The Camaro looks great in the Stigs hands.

Some say that he eats bunnies for breakfast and puppies for lunch...all I know is we call him the Stig.

Can't wait to see it;-) Waiting for the next season to start, the REAL Top Gear;-) Don't get the whole TG US, Australia, Russia thing. There is only one real TG and everyone else is just milking the name like a fake purse in china town. I can't believe that the BBC is selling out like that

Actually, I remember watching the episode when they got their hands on the camaro. They compared it to a merc 3x the price. The merc was a few seconds faster, and the camaro did put up a garbage time on the track. But I kind of remember all 3 hosts saying they would take the camaro over the merc in the end.
