The Cadilliac said Hilliary for president (as in Hilliary Clinton, AKA bills wife) that can also cause issues in the south since the south is tradionally Republican and Hillary is a Democrat. BTW don't know if you noticed but the Caddy also had "I'm Bi" painted on the hood.
The Camaro (sorry Chevrolet not Pontiac), said Country and Western is rubbish..... Well it hasn't really been called country and western in about 20 years, it's just county music now. And I won't even go into the rubbish bit, NO one in the states uses the word rubbish....

The all Americans are fat and rude was a little much, mostly fat: maybe.... but rude.... of course they were rude, look where they started, the Ghetto of Miami, their lucky they didn't get killed or robbed for just being white in those neighborhoods.
No offense but just about every brit that I have met here was very rude also, thats what stopped me from going to England with my dad when he was transfered there when i was younger.

All in all that was a very funny episode but i was kinda grossed out about them strapping a bloated dead cow to the roof of the Camaro, that was just sick not to mention who would help them put it on the roof when it could explode at any minute.
Don`t worry
usa & uk peeps have different outlook on life
And none of us is wrong with it
rubbish is trash in usa talk

this is not the only UK TV program that has come unstuck in alabama
Dom Jolly (comedian) done a drink based fact finding program & moon shine came up ,that got a bit iffy as well

seems like the alabama peeps are really close to the Edge of insanity with only a slightest wrong sentence or word set`s them off on one
hell they even shoot there own State sign (mind you if we had guns we would shoot the speed cameras in the same way

Bloated cow
see we find that really funny to see what clarkson had come back with ,knowing he was upto some thing anyways ,better then the squirrel

Since you guys are Top Gear fans, i have a question for all you brits...

The driver they have for all the track runs, they call him "The Stig" (sp?).....

What the heck does that mean? Is it a British slang term or just a nickname?

Oh did you see the USA version of the Stig!! ,just about got in that car`s with he`s belly

Nickname to hide he`s real name ,Got T-shirts aswell out now

perry Mcarthy was the first one (black suit 2003 era)

The original Stig was former Andrea Moda pilot Perry McCarthy.
The present Stig is none other than British GT ace & former Indy Lights racer Ben Collins.

That car is freaking fast! I seen how the car was built: I had Bugatti send me a DVD about the car a while back when the car was about to be unveiled. It is practically two engines slammed together, with four turbos on the assist. The transmission is like no other: it has no shift lag, so you don't have that sudden lunge forward when you shift. The interior is also wicked...... they actually breed the cows for that perfect leather, no wire fences, and no cattle prods!!!

A 250 mph car that you can drive on city streets without worrying about gas for a million buck? It's worth every penny. But if you use that special key....... you can kiss that tank of gasoline goodbye in about 10 minutes!!!
