Don't worry badgebunny - He's known for other things too - Some say he invented Curtins - He sure can drive, but he's not to bright. It takes him an hour and a half to watch 60 minutes...

Gotta love the Stig. Is this Ben Collins, or did the show replace the Stig?

I thought Richard was alone in that debate. Jeremy still believes the Camaro is only driven by murderers. Plus he's a big merc fan anyway. Kinda funny when you think of all the times they bring up how they beat the germans. Don't remember James ever being in that debate. But he did love the CTS-V and I say thats close enough.

They may be hypocrites at times(mostly Clarkson) and hate my favorite country(again Clarkson), but I still love them.

On the 60 Minutes, I wonder if they are going to have the rest of the gang there to answer questions with "some say" style answers.

To my knowledge Ben was no longer the Stig when he went public since the Stig is BBC'c property and not allowed to have a face. And they already replaced him when he announced his book if what was said about seeing Stig at the Nurburgring is true.

Just a reminder that each week CBS tends to run over with the football broadcast. If you will be setting a DVR make sure that you run it over and hour or so in order to make sure that you get the whole thing!

Sadly, Jeremy Clarkson would never say that.
Hammond said he'd take the Camaro- but he LOVES American muscle cars.
Sorry- I watch this show religiously.

It was definitely an L99 you can see the paddles on the back of the wheel in a couple of shots, not to mention the obvious lack of shifting. I would have given anything to see a head-on camera shot of the 60 min guy soiling his drawers on that ride with the Stig. Thanks to Top Gear & the Stig for making our cars look as awesome as we know they are.

I thought the same thing as soon as I saw it and rewound it for a better look. I thought maybe it is because of the paddle shifters, which I don't have, that make the steering wheel look smaller.
