Top Gear just lost all credibility...

Anyone else see where they said Chevy was producing the Z28 with the LSA?

We all know it's true ... but this was filmed how long ago? They just lost all credibility in my mind...

saw that.I hope they are going to make more HP then top gears predictions...I also hope the Z is affordable.. The wife asked me tonight if I was going to sell the SS to get the Z ..I told her it all depends on price.

Not being able to see out of the car might keep you from seeing their crappy wanna-be show. So, really it is kind of a good thing. I watched about 5 minutes of it today and it was like watching paint drive.

I think the stripes are CGM. They wouldnt be that glossy if it was matte black.

I really didn't like what they did to the Cutlass. I DID like their Roadmaster concept minus the wood grain

That might not be a bad call. It is a realistic option for the Z28.

Heck if it's not coming with the CTS-V engine then I'll spend my money on the SS. Time will tell. Hope someone will chime in if they know for real that they are not using the LSA

I liked the concept too! GM could bring over the Commodore wagon and put on a Buick or Chevy badge.

Lets see..Top Gear UK..the biggest car show in the WORLD..with following all over the world. They had the same test almost exaclty. I would say yes.

Top Gear is much more than just cars..its much more.

When I wrote the First Drive for GMHTP of the all new (at the time) 06 Z06 which I did in October (2005 IIRC) I mentioned the LS9

Not sure why you guys are riled up about that comment?
