Wow that's incredible craftsmanship. An entirely hand made car.

I don't know what episodes have been show'n in the US but if you can put up with Jeremy Clarkson it's worth watching.

Man, both of those videos were excellent. And I really like the music in the earlier scenes of the Top Gear video. I know it's a movie theme, but for the life of me I can't remember which movie.

If this is true I hate to think of the future of car manufactures and world economy's.

I don't know that ANY vehicle on here is cooler-

Can't say I ever saw one used like that??
But people were pretty inventive back then

Brits were pretty good at building "machines" the withstand nasty conditions-their 3 speeds lasted forever with minimal maintenance-and looked good doing it

We need more Land Rover pictures-more 40's-50's-60's 3 speeds too.ENGLISH RACERS

I'm still pretty wary of Chrysler products, but the new Challenger Hellcat looks BA. Sorry about the link, I'm on mobile.
