I still don't buy a Lambo being beaten by a mere 473BHP Nissan.

Once TG get their hands on it in season 11, then we'll see what's what.

On the topic of Top Gear, I heard a rumor that the original Stig, was retired F1 driver Damon Hill. This was the Stig they catapaulted off an aircraft carrier. Does anyone know if this is true?

It's not. The Black Stig was Perry McCarthy, a former formula one driver and tester. They supposedly "killed" him for him being a little too old, and it showed - Black Stig's time in the Liana was 1:46, whereas White Stig did it in 1:44.4. So there is a clear difference between the two.

I'm getting so sick of waiting for Top Gear to start. That show is so awesome, especially because Jeremy gets away with saying so many things that would crucify you in Canada or the United States.

I don't have very high hopes for "Gear" (The American Top Gear) since it won't be as funny.

Anyways, for anyone that likes ALMS, my source for desktop wallpapers has a new gallery of the 2008 Audi R10 TDI. Link

I currently have a screensaver consisting of exactly 918 high resolution wallpapers mostly from that site.

TBH I'm surprised he wasn't slaughtered when he pretty much trashed the entire American car manufacturing business in "The Good The Bad The Ugly".

Also, TG has at least a 4 month break in between seasons, in order to get various film clips, interviews arranged, etc. And with Top Gear LIVE 2008 happening on a global stage, I'm not sure how pre-occupied they are with that. So yeah, we just gotta be a little bit more patient.

And 918 images? Overkill FTW, anyone?

The even more surprising thing is how he gets away with all his Nazi and German jokes. I read somewhere about all the complaints that the BBC gets because of Jeremy's antics. The BBC usually says something like "Anyone that watches Top Gear knows what it's like and if you don't like that then don't watch". I'm kind of surprised that a TV corporation actually backs their people that strongly, here in North America they would dump your ass so fast. It's good to see that the BBC values their excellent hosts.

I started off with a couple dozen pictures from random sites but when I found that site I would check up every week and they would have so many cool car wallpapers so I just ended up saving them and after a year of doing that I'm at over 900 pictures. When I got a couple hundred I figured why not make a screensaver from them and from there I just kept getting more and more pictures to make the screensaver more interesting. You should see it when my screensaver comes on during a lecture, half the people sitting behind me have their eyes glued to it.

Oh, and I have a friend who's a serious BMW addict. He's never owned a car that wasn't a BMW. He has 2000 (!!!!) pictures of only BMWs if you can believe that. He just told me yesterday, I told him he should make a screensaver out of those.

Lawl BMW junkie. I suppose if you pulled up a faster/better car than his beside it he'd probably tear it to pieces.

Well, whatever works. If you have lectures, then by all means put loadsa pictures in your screensaver. Helps if you put in the occasional pronz picture, then people would be REALLY interested.

And also, you can't exactly disrespect aspects of your own corporation, can you? It's almost like disrespecting yourself. So naturally, the BBC would want to look tough and be supportive of their work. Even if it is a bit... crude.

He constantly tells me that Skyline's suck. But since the GT-R was tested he doesn't have much to say anymore.

As far as pronz go, my background of Eva Longoria does that pretty nicely. Surprisingly some people don't recognize her, I have literally been asked a dozen times "is that your girlfriend?". Man, if I had ever even met a girl that hot . . .

The thing with TV in North America is the lack of loyalty. If someone says the tiniest offensive thing they either get a huge fine or they get fired. Jeremy would never survive North American TV, people are just to pathetic over here. That's why I know that "Gear" won't be as good. But hey, as long as the real Top Gear airs it's all good.
