Makes me even more nervous about their review now, as mine is IOM as well!

I'm a Brit, living in Dallas, watched Top Gear back home since I was a kid! Love that show. I hope they do me proud both as a Brit and a Camaro owner and reinforce the fact that simply, the new Camaro is ace!

And with Hammy driving, there's a good chance that could happen.

I love all of the hate that Top Gear gets because they like to rag on American cars.

Guess what guys, American cars were absolute shit for a long time and the Brits love to remind everyone of that. The Top Gear guys don't hate on all things US though. They LOVED the ZR1. Clarkson even named it his car of the year last year. Clarkson owns a Ford GT. I believe Hammond owns a classic Mustang and Charger.

Top Gear is THE best car show on TV right now and probably ever. That's a fact. So what if they give American cars shit? I don't care because where else do you get to see a show where they put all of the worlds super exotics through the ringer? You don't.

They like the LS3 when they reviewed it in other cars from Australia.

I loved his reactions to those cars! That's why I think Camaro at least has a chance with Hammond. Yeah - Clarkson and May will rip it after, but it's all in good fun. They rip on almost all the cars - though American cars get it a little more, lol.

And they are quick to point out how crappy the British cars are too, in fact they did a whole episode on how crappy their manufacturing techniques were.

It's all a shtick, they are entertainers not journalists.
