He's a douchebag...

But like a lot of his other stuff, it's hilarious. :lol:

Clarkson hates U.S. Cars...fine. I am not going to cry over the loss of one or two PA's at his hands. But I will take this opportunity to mock him back.

1: American's eat because we actually have food that tastes good. Notice the lack of "British" or "English Isle" restaurants.

2: British car companies are owned by the U.S. and China now. Does Britain even produce anything any more?

3: The Full Monty We can make a whole slew of bad cars to make up for that cinematic wonder.

I do love the show though. And the Beer from England is pretty damned good as well. Besides...there is not a person on this site who would not do what the machine operator did in a heartbeat. You cannot say it did not look like fun!! I would do it!

I wish they brought that machine in to mangle the Prius instead. That would have been far more satisfying.

You also have to realize the untold story was that he likely bought that car for $500, so what can you expect? Its also for entertainment and it sure is fun to make fun of America. Anyway, it clearly wasn't an Ultra and wasn't even well-equipped, so whatever. Also, its obvious the other red one was a pile, too - look at the paint.

I do like how he says it though. Buick Park Avenuemmmmmmmmm...nice!

Actually, the most upsetting part of that video is the first minute or so...

What was the point of that? Specifically, what was the point of disassembling a car and placing it all through an airplane window? I guess it's that "sophisticated" English wit that a dumb, fat American wouldn't understand.

I've always hated Jeremy Clarkson with a passion, and have often advocated for his death. As both an Anglophile and an American of Puritan English descent, I think it's absolutely ludicrous for him to suggest English superiority over American culture. What if we compared the people and culture of Cape Cod, MA or East Hampton, NY to the more common English classes, or the rough and rowdy footballers? Which society seems more orderly and advanced, then?

That Park Avenue was one in need of repair. The red car was a LeSabre. Look at the bill pillar of that Park Avenue. That LeSabre rear door was a dead giveaway.

I'm not sure what's more stupid...

Crushing a Park Ave. because it sucks while pretending that

somehow European cars are better... esp. if you're from the

U.K., a country that has made some of the biggest pieces

of &#036;h&#33; ever and then priced them to compete with Mercedes.

OR

Racing a Dodge RAm crew cab against an Ariel Atom.

He's such a pompous duechebag. How about we race

a DC-10 against his grandmother?

I wish they brought that machine in to mangle the Prius instead. That would have been far more satisfying.

Fantastic point!

I feel a need to apologize to mr Clarkson. Were it not for us Yanks he could read the owners manual of his Audi in a native German rather than a translated into English version.

This blowhard has absolutely no room to talk about automotive quality, coming from Britain. And I love his statement "...a 1994, and it's already ready for the junkyard!" What the hell is he talking about. Everything depends on how the car was treated over the last 13 years. I dare him to put up any British vehicle from 1994 against that Buick.

Why don't we write him a letter slamming him and his audacious hatred for GM and America in general. May be he will make fun of us, and we can retort by suing him. :AH-HA_wink:

Those British B*tches cannot even win the game they proclaim to have invented. -- Cricket. Every time they play against Australia, they get mauled like a zebra fowl attacked by a herd of 15 hyenas and they still have the pomposity of the sixteenth century.

I usually find his shows funny, but it seems like lately I'm seeing more episodes where he blatantly skews things. There's no way in hell Stig was mashing on the gas in that Ram, and I can't help but think that all the swerving off the track was done on purpose. How much do you want to bet the AC in that Park Avenue was working fine before Clarkson got his hands on it. By fabricating all kinds of problems, he keeps the stereotypes going.

I too would like to see him focus on the bottom half of British society for once. I haven't been to Britain, but when I lived in Italy last semester it was clear that there are those who are educated and cultured and those who frankly weren't (and they tended to be the ones that thought all Americans were rich, spoiled, and lazy). I'm sure it's no different in Britian. Go outside of the posh flats and into the drug-infested ghettos of London and lets see what Clarkson has to say about that. Let's see Clarkson name all 50 capitals of the US; I know I can name the capital of nearly every European country....London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, Madrid, Lisbon, Rome, Vienna, Bern, Warsaw, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Budapest, Prague, Bucharest...as well as at least two dozen European non-capital cities. Yeah, we're all a bunch of dumb, fat, lazy slobs that eat all the time and inbreed with our cousins.

Sure, there are some really dumb Americans out there, but doesn't every society have that? Let's see him take us through the backwater parts of Britain for a change where they speak English so poorly that a native speaker can hardly understand it.

Clarkson is the prime example of British snobbery.

The American's are a "wasted society"? Did he just say that? That sounds like a pretty ignorant comment to me, especially from someone who is supposed to be above that kind of stuff.

This guy has no credibility at all.

I wish my buddy Tall Paul would do a similar review of his newly acquired 1972 Triumph Spitfire.

He bought the car for a few hundred bucks to flip & make money with, now he has been working

on it while he daily drives it and his 1973 Oldsmobile 98 2dr ht sits under a car cover. Pauls'

descriptions of the Triumph's crappiness are much more funny than Clarkson's of the LeSabre.

You can't say it wasn't awesome to see that 3800 get its juices squeezed out like it was a watermelon, but Clarkson really is sort of a turd. I, too, do not get why he thinks American vehicles are so damn awful when his country makes some of the worst &#036;h&#33; going.

I think it says a lot about the quality of British vehicles when a high profile figure of theirs like Princess Diana gives back the Jaguar she got FOR FREE and turns right around and PAYS for a Mercedes. So not only was she dissatisfied with a Jaguar, but she also did not see it fit to go out and get any other British vehicle, most likely for free as well, when it was up to her to find a replacement for the Jaguar she hated so much. Guess she wanted something that ran on foggy days too.
