newly registered 2nd J.K.
My first post is in response to an older forum subject. It inspired me to email Top Gear U.K directly, register and restart the subject.
Top Gear U.K hasn't coverd these three great vehicles together.
Imagine those three goofing around in the 4x4's we know and love.
Here is the email I sent as follows.
Subject: General Purpose?
Hello Top Gear,
I would like you to do a three teared review and compare the Land Rover Defender, Toyota FJ Cruiser and the Jeep Wrangler 4 door Rubicon. On road, offroad functions and features.
Here's a link to the forum that got me thinking.
Why haven't we seen a comparative review in regards to these very capable machines on your program? I've been watching Top Gear for years. Maybe I missed that episode.
Thanks for all the laughs over the years.
The contact list is below, I sent the email to all three just in case.
email general enquiries.
Feel free to contact them yourself

|6InARowMakesItGo||i would rather have a modified modern vette and a stock old vette.|

|Ibuildembig||And honestly that goes for pretty much everything from the 60's and earlier. The only exception would be the tri5 chevys, but....an original convertible will still bring more than 85 percent of the customs. Just do what I do, take junk and make what you want out of it|

We have a vette shop that does the older years near me, he always has about 10-12 different ones there at once, he gets them done, resells them, and buys more. makes a ton of money. the more original the more they are worth.
|06-23-2011 04:12 PM|
|Ibuildembig||never never never mod a vette....especially one that's gonna hold its value|
|06-23-2011 04:07 PM|
this is one of the most entertaining shows on tv. i could really care less what there opinions on cars are. most of the ones they think are good i wouldn't look twice at.
i'd rather have a Z06 with a turbo than a ZR1
|06-23-2011 02:53 PM|
Which he sold.
|06-23-2011 02:36 PM|
He also loves the original Viper, but panned the new one (and rightfully so). He also raves on the Z06.
|06-23-2011 02:27 PM|
|Ibuildembig||^^^^agreed 100 percent|
|06-23-2011 02:25 PM|
Given the money, there's other cars I'd have over the CTS-V as well, but it's still the fastest production sedan in the world.
Short of a Veyron, there's no car I'd have over the ZR-1. It's the complete package. 0-60 in 3.7, 0-100 in 7, 11.3 @ 131mph in the 1/4 mile, 7:19 around the 'ring, yet still docile enough during regular driving to let your mother drive to church and comfortable enough to compete with the best GT cars in the world, all while knocking down 26mpg on the highway. All for a hell of a lot less than anything near it in terms of total package.

|jim turner 1||well, it was grudgingly said but at the end they said they weren't worth having, when they were making the episode when they were driving from Reno to the Salt Flats the Challenger had to be bought as they were told they would not get one on loan as they never said good things about American vehicles. James May actually loved his Cadilac but at the end of the piece in the studio they basically said would you buy one, answer no, don't waste your money on an American car. twats|

the guys on top gear hate american cars of any description. mind you, the guy in the clip above richard hammond bought one a couple of years ago a gto i'm sure.
and jeremy clarkson had a gt40. they only go with the old stereotype that american vehicles are fuel guzzlers and can't take bends or corner very well.
unless they are in a porsche, ferrari, lambo, bentley all cars suck!.
they are prats.

Ok, before I got my jeep i was looking at every vehicle that is "like" a jeep. FJs, Land rovers, ect....
there are some good deals on rovers, but after doing some research i guess they have some of the worse reliability issues ever. glad i found me jeep =)

I would still enjoy driving over the hunk of garbage.

|Ibuildembig||It wouldnt last that long lol....my sis had a range rover and it had so many stupid sensors that would go out regularly and it would have to be towed to st louis for repair. And get this....she wants another one....|

|GoldenSahara00||Everyone on WF donate a dollar, we can buy a Land Rover, do our own test vs all the Jeeps, cj yj tj and jk, then put it on the youtube. then we trash the land rover and drive over it in the credits. we also send it to top gear|

|Ibuildembig||They are just mad they have bad teeth|
|06-23-2011 10:32 AM|
I love the show and it's probably my favorite on TV, but they have a huge bias against American cars. Remember the Camaro vs. Mercedes test? Perfect example. They LOVED the Holden/Vauxhall Monaro VXR, but mocked the Pontiac GTO, and it's the exact same car!!

|Zetsumei||That was pretty awesome lol. Now if I could drive my Jeep on water...|
