....1966 VW Double Cab.

TMZ claims Wood traded in his "Datsun 521" for the VW.

Top Gear USA still sucks BTW.

It's a tabloid show that tells us about the dump a famous person just took, and why we should care.

Hmm, I've never seen Top Gear USA (thankfully, if popular opinion is to be believed).


Let's put it this way:

Take Jeremy Clarkson, and give him tranquilizers. Put Richard Hammond back into the situation he had with the Vampire Drag Car sans medical treatment. And James May is willing to destroy classic Sports Cars like the Jaguar E-Type and the Volvo P1800 in order for them to haul sewage sludge.

Your Top Gear USA hosts in a nutshell.

it's not all bad.. haters gonna hate... wood is the best of the 3 for sure though..

and to be honest, if you compare it to any other US based car show, it's awesome.. i mean really? "test drive" with tommy kendall makes me want to kill myself.... seriously.. what a freakin copout/sellout..

just don't compare it to the british version of top gear and you're fine..

Wood doesn't come off as an "expert" to me. He says all the right things, but you don't really want him to touch your car for any reason whatsoever.

Tanner is okay, just he needs some work on his hosting. Adam.....um......that comedian guy. Yeah, fire him.

If you're a fan of UK car shows, you'd know that Top Gear and Fifth Gear have continually vied for popularity with Top Gear winning mainly due to the presenters. The Top Gear US reminds me of Fifth Gear more than anything, the presenters let it down, they lack the chemistry that's made Top Gear UK what it is.
I would have to agree that Wood is the only decent presenter they have on the Top Gear US show. You really have to compare it to the british one, because that's what they are trying to recreate, hence carrying the Top Gear name. And they failed, it doesn't hold up. Tanner Foust lacks personality, pretty boring. Adam Ferrara, the comedian, isn't funny or really add much to the show. It's kinda sad, because there are better presenters that came to mind before the US spin off even started, Adam Carolla for one. That is a true car nut with the knowledge, personality and humor that would have added so much to the show.
I think Top Gear may have to face their presenter issue this season, since Speed channel has Carolla presenting "The Car Show". I hope that it at least makes both shows face up to the challenge and improve both... time will tell who wins in creating a quality Car Show for the US.

That show.....they really need to overhaul that show drastically.

* Turn the set over from "ESPN Sportscenter Lite" to more car-themed. Like a garage set with a few lawn chairs. Or the seats out of a GMC Savannah Passenger Van.
* Get rid of a couple of the hosts. The black guy for starters.
* Adam needs to differentiate between being punctual and factual and cracking jokes. Not everything that comes from his mouth needs to be a joke.
* Maybe add a few Juggies.
