From another thread here the talk turned to luxury cars. Any "Top Gear" fans here? My DH and I recently got into the show which is being shown on BBC America (which is my go-to channel). We just laugh hysterically at their antics. The recent show with the limousines and another one with them trying to cross the Channel were so funny! I want to drive a test lap!!!!!:happydance:

I love it! especially when they pit the cars against people with strange hobbies, like the rock climber who jumped off the edge to reach the bottom before Jeremy. Great show.

I wonder if there is a group on Ravelry. Will have to check that out sometime.

I think I have a crush on Richard Hammond. He's so adorable. :heart:

I love those boys so much, they make me laugh. The last special in Africa was just amazing. I have a t-shirt that says 'I am the Stig'.

I have a crush on one of the presenters but I'm not saying which one!

I was going to start a 'Top Gear' group on Ravely the other day but didn't think it would interest many people.

We :heart: Top Gear! I watched all 10 seasons! My favourite phrase is Jeremy's "How hard can it be?!":rofl: The Africa episode was great and i also loved the Polar special, but i hated that Richard lost, he tried so hard and worked much harder than Jeremy and James. And one of my favourite episodes is when Jeremy lost to a race in London to a marathon runner :teehee: We should make a pattern of Stig and start a fashion:think:

Can't wait to tell hubby that there are "Stig" T-shirts somewhere. I'll have to try and find one for his birthday.

Nobones, please start the group. I'm Sunshinesmom on Ravelry too and I'll be there.

My hubby and I are addicted to Top Gear! We got hooked on it a few years ago when they ran one season on Discovery, then it disappeared so we hunted down all the old episodes online. We Tivo and watch it religiously now! I loved the Polar special, but I think my favorite was when Jeremy (in a Lambo or Ferrari--can't remember which) raced Richard and James (who took only public transportation and a plane) to Switzerland. It was hilarious! And Richard is adorable. Tiny and adorable. :lol:

I'm so off to join the Ravelry group now.

Anyone else watching the boys on sports relief wrecking that poor guys garden - it must be a wind-up

Top Gear rocks! I love the one where they go across africa - particularly the bit where Richard yells OLIVER!

TBH, I don't watch much Top Gear because I don't get great reception and have to download any TV I watch, but after watching Top Ground Gear Force the other night at a mate's and almost peeing myself laughing I think I'm going to get a few more. I haven't seen anything so funny in a long time! Poor Steve, he looked like one of the Mitchell brothers in that still! My favourite bit was seeing the mini cat just .. fall.. in the background.
