    Favourite Top Gear moment ????

    Ok guys n girls, it seems like most people are a fan of Top Gear but if you had to pick one, what would be your favourite all time moment???

    For me it has to be the one where they all made amphibious vehicles. Hammonds went down as soon as it hit the water, Clarkson tore up and down the lake in the Hilux with a ridiculously large outboard on it, then tipped it over on the last turn. And after snapping off the mast on the way, Captain slow spent about 2 days crossing the lake and very nearly drove out again.

    Fantastic..!!

    The DB9 vs Public Transport. That was the first insane race I saw. you have admire the fact that the French Rozzers wave Clarkson on.

    Yeah we'd not get that over here..!! I was quite amused when they all bought cars for under £100, and James managed to knock himself out hitting the wall.

    My favourite "banter moment" was when they had to buy cars for £100, Clarkson bought the Volvo whose speedo didn't work so ended up slamming into the wall at about 40mph. And then he drove it away and revealed it cost him £1.

    My favourite "car moment" was Tiff driving the McLaren F1 and how he was reduced to making primeval grunts instead of talking. Quality.

    The Ice Hockey Game - Winter Olympics Special. That was hillarious. Instead of refereeing the game Jezza was chatting up birds and drinking and falling about. Well Funny.
    Or when Hammond built the snow-bank in the wrong place for the Mini being launched off the Ski Jump!!!!

    I loved the when they made a target in a quarry and had to sling cars into it with the caravan as the bullseye.

    Basically any of the caravan destroying stunts worked for me

    Reading back through these posts it looks more like a Carry on film than a motoring show. But I guess thats what keeps us watching.

    I wonder why all the presenters haven't tackled the track in the reasonably priced car though??? As far as I know only Jezza has tried it in the Liana.

    My firm supplies them all the caravans.

    They've had at least 15-20 old ****ters off us i reckon.

    Never get a bloody mention though.......

    When they set fire to that one on the campsite it was bloody hilarious, completely set up of course, they bought a spare set of wheels and tyres so they could tow it afterwards. Classic.

    One of my customers was complaining cos it was their friend that dragged Hammond off for a cup of tea and she had the piss taken out of her. They obviously don't think she's completely ****ing bonkers!!!!

    I have to deal with these nutters.....
