Yes, the answer is the Ford Transit van. Ford could'nt decide which was better so they offered both. The smaller engine one gets FWD and the bigger engine (more payload) gets RWD. Congo Stratos.

Funny, that the JC-loving Stratos was the one who knew about the Transit... JC HATES the Ford Transit. 99% of the world's evils can be blamed on young men in white Transits, according to Clarkson.

I don't think JC really hates the Ford Transit van. It's at #48 in his Top 100 cars of all time. He says many things just to add a little humour to the show.

A24: easy one
Name the present TVR boss, and the man before him.

A25:
Name the founders of Aston Martin.

A26: easy again
This man was the genius behind an all time great car. He then went out on his own, made a car that was a total shambles and a failure, and then got involved in a drug scam. Who is this man?

A27:
Name the design feature that all BMW's have and has been patented by them. (no it's not the most obvious feature we identify BMW's by )

Stratos please give the others some time to answer and then do your thing!!

Correct answers Aditya.

Revvmaster, you must specify the full name.

Shall I give the full name, or can one of you guys do so?

Mpower, A27 is the Hoffmeister kink, good on you man.
