Default BBC UK Top Gear, greatest Car show on the planet?

Well, I think so, but then again, I'm easily pleased. The total refusal to deal with the mundane, the superb mates chemistry between three disparate presenters, the sarcasm coupled with blatent sexist banter, the stupid challenges, etc, etc, set this masterpiece apart IMO. The most successful TV car franchise in history, they must be doing something right. Stolen from the Harry Conway thread, here's a clip that tickled MikeM;

And who can forget the "Convertible Challenge":

And the crazy "Channel crossing challenge":

And for me, the best piece of car engineering stupidity in history: Only let down by one release bolt, totally awsome! This is the "boys toys" clip to end all boys toys clips!
