I saw the trailer for Top Gear US, Meh ! seems like a white boy trying to be hip, I will have to watch and see if it can keep up with the original. Doubt it!

The first few years of the show they actually reviewed cars!

I don't think Jeremy Clarkson was even in the first few series, he didn't show up til the late 80's

The show was going at least as early as the late 70's
