    I think it will come down to them getting a quality test track and some sweet cars to test early on. I guess the hosts would need to have some workable personalities as well.

    He's too much of a pig. And I dont think he knows what a car is.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Carolla knows plenty about cars. He just has weird tastes in cars.

    He would have been on the show, he was asked a second time. But he is busy filming a new NBC sitcom.

    I think Carolla would have been great, he has no problem ripping on anyone or anything. If a car sucked, he would have let you know.

    I agree their current cast is $#@!.

    I think the cast needs to be tasteful in that it must live up to the same witty dark humor that UK top gear has. It cant just be some 'good ol'e boys' shooting a show. It has to have more of the same content and emotions that the UK show brought. So far it just looks like another idiotic 'bull-run' type show with no meaning and sh1t blowing up.

    I want to hear the cars, give me details on what it drives like etc... lap times etc...

    How much does he really know his cars if he went to RMS for work on his BMW?

    I agree, he knows much more than the average person. Would he have been great? I don't know, I don't like his style or delivery. He wouldn't be better than Jeremy, I know that.

    Nobody is better than Jeremy. Jeremy is actually friends with Chuck Norris... They hang out on the weekends.

    ^ Looks good. One just cant expect it to be the same as the BCC one without Captain Slow, Jeremy, and the other guy... Click here to enlarge
    I wonder if they will have a Stig, and how they'll go about presenting him... british humor is usually better than american humor, as far as Top Gear goes...

    Moonshining and Nascar, two words that should never be used in the same sentence as Top Gear...

    I dont think it will be too bad really... I'm hoping that they entertain in their own new ways but keping some of the topgear touch!

    That being said, I hope they don't try to fuse british humor with american humor and call it a day. In fact, there are things that would only sound funny coming from jeremy's mouth... and no other briton! haha

    They have quite a bit to live up to.

    Exactly, they shouldn't try to be British and that unique quirkiness is what makes Top Gear work.
