    What a great show it was tonight. I've actually done most of the same drive myself two years ago, albeit in the opposite direction (New Orleans to Orlando), and it's a very long way! Brought back some great memories, although we stayed in NO before Katrina struck. Glad they gave the cars away at the end, too.

    Only bad thing was the graffitti to piss off the locals. That was pointless and insultive - I think they got off quite lightly really.

    I thought this was hillarious. They did try to explain it was only a joke but the backwards "Hicks" (In the womans own words) could not take a joke. This for me just somes up the vast majority of Americans. Especially "The Bush" mentallity of retaliate first then ask questions later. The car salesmen was very proud of his guns.

    I think the car decoration part was funny. Just a shame so many americans can't laugh at themselves.

    True, but "when in Rome" and all that. Wouldn't have been hilarious if a local had taken a gun to them - and I'm sure many people have died in America for less.

    Makes my point exactly about the Americans being shoot first ask questions later. TBH I really dont think they could have forseen that they would have actually wanted to shoot at them or throw rocks. If they thought for the slightest second that they would, then they wouldn't have done it.
    Just the fact instead of asking what it was all about and listening to the explanation first, then give them a chance to removed it, the "Hicks" just decided your gonna get linched, shot etc. F'ing simpletons with guns!

    Any ways rant over.

    THAT IS BY FAR THE BEST EPISODE OF TOPGEAR EVER!!!!!

    The grille might have been $100 as the one that is on the website appears to be a new super-dooper version and thats only $299 so maybe he got it on sale. coz its an old model. LOL

    I got stoned for climbing up a 200ft Rock face in Coeburn, Virginia and replacing the stars and stripes and dixie flags with the Union Jack!

    It was on Independence day though... and they eventually saw the funny side once they realised my mate I was staying with was the town police trooper...phew...
