    So these Brits are really diggin our cars now. I will have to check them out if its so.

    I believe I stopped watching a few years back because I felt a negativity was expressed towards the American brands..

    You would be missing out on some of the best TV ever made. Their Florida to New Orleans trip was one of the funniest things they have done that nearly got them shot.

    I would sooner meet the three of those guys, or even any one of them, than meet any of the past 3 presidents of the US.

    I had a slim shot at meeting them when they were at Willow Springs about 3 years ago. I have dreamed of going on vacation and meeting them at their live studio.

    Those guys have the best job in the world and I am jealous as hell of them.

    There was, Clarkson was always slagging off the US cars, but Hammond has always loved the Stang, has a few I think.
    Also now with the BBC one loving the Stang, they have copied them,
    And as Amazon Prime is big in the US, it helps to sell the programme if the presenters love the cars where they want the programme to be sold to

    This is really just a running gag that they have going. Clarkson bought a Ford GT. Hammond has a few different mustangs and always shows love to the american "muscle cars." They play up the amazingness of British cars without mentioning their total lack of reliability.

    As much as I want to not say this I kinda have a very deep gut feeling that it was subliminal product placement lol. But yes, he does love his Mustangs.

    TBH, I never foresaw myself buying anything American for the longest time. They were cheaply made, inefficient, heavy, and not great looking. There were a few select models I did like such as the z06s, cobras, Ford GTs, etc. Ford has been changing that. The coyote engine, the s550, the new gt350, the upcoming Focus RS and the new Ford GT have all shown that ford has made a complete 180 in making great cars.

    Top gear loved Vauxhall/Holden/Pontiac muscle car from a few years ago to bits. Hammond loves his mustangs full stop. I was lucky enough to race clarkson,tiff and may a few years ago on sega rally which was hilarious. Tiff won obviously.
