i agree that whatever they are doing is for making their show stand out - but then can't help it if it hurts me looking at what they have done to those beauties.
HOLD UP!! This thread is the LAST place on T-BHP where you would want to rebuke anything about what Top Gear does. Trust me

Let's not go down that path ok ? I say this as someone who is hoping that, since it is past midnight, we can let the sleeping lie, and maybe certain members of T-BHP will be without power or internet access for the next few days, by which time your post will have receded into the far back pages of this thread.

In any event (backing away slowly), I totally agree with you .

True that!

The Evo belonged to some drug dealer and was confiscated by the court and ordered to be destroyed. So we cant blame TG. It would have been destroyed anyway.

True indeed, but why kill the poor bloke's car for the crimes he did, but clarkson has given it a true heroic end than let it go into a crusher. and who the hell is blaming TG , i just wanted to give the dude a heart attack.

Heres a similar car for sale for just about 4000 Jaguar XJS V12 HE Coupe For Sale, classic cars for sale uk (Car: advert number 134081) | Classic Cars For Sale, Which is about 320000 INR. So less then the price of most new small hatchbacks. These cars aren't really extremely valuable in the UK.
This episode is going to be epic. I can't think of a better way to enjoy three British classic cars then a epic cross country road trip.
You stand corrected there mate!

Jeremy ends in trouble (again) with his comments.. Hope he holds on to his job.
