Richard Hammond helps terminally ill girl live pink Lamborghini dream

Emilia Palmer, an eight-year-old from Kimbolton, Herefordshire in England’s West Midlands, suffers from a rare lung illness, requiring her to constantly be on oxygen.

And last Sunday, she got to [...]

Hamster on Old Metal

It seem Richard Hammond, of Top Gear fame, has a 1968 Ford Mustang GT, complete with a big-block 390 under the hood. Unlike my relationship with American iron, Hammond’s has been largely drama free, dishing up the kind of reliability only the most crude forms of internal combustion can deliver – until recently. A recent [...]

Jeremy Clarkson Ties Chrysler Sebring to the Iraq War

As much as I dislike (most) hardtop convertibles, I like the Chysler Sebring even less. It’s simply not a good car and one of the many reasons why Chrysler’s in so much trouble, and I imagine a folding hardtop version is about as bad as cars get. And — according to Top Gear’s top man Jeremy Clarkson [...]

Top Gear: Nissan GT-R Takes Off The Gloves

We brought you Top Gear’s epic race between Japan’s flawless mass transit system and Nissan’s newest incarnation of Godzilla. If you’re anything like us, you were probably somewhat stunned to hear Clarkson bemoan the car’s performance, but that was jaunting through the island country side, suffering Nissan factory speed restriction (110 mph) the entire way.
