Top Gear Fans
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!!!!!

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.

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 Top Gear! I watched all 10 seasons! My favourite phrase is Jeremy's "How hard can it be?!" 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 We should make a pattern of Stig and start a fashion

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.
