Top Gear USA – episode 5 this weekend

As Britain continues to disappear under what appears to be a massive Britain-shaped iceberg lowered from the sky with unerring accuracy, we’ve been eyeing the balmy footage from California-based Top Gear USA with some envy this week.

For episode five, Tanner, Adam and Rutledge head to Detroit to choose their favorite old GM cars and put them through a series of challenges to decide which one should be brought back into production. The choice? The Buick Roadmaster, the Pontiac Fiero, or Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme…

Elsewhere skateboard legend and game designer Tony Hawk gets on the Top Gear test track, and there’s our favourite “news” segment of the series so far.

Enjoy, America-based TopGear.commers – remember, it’s on as usual this Sunday evening on the History Channel at 10/9c. You can also catch up with old episodes and out-takes right here on the History Channel site (if you’re American). Let us know what you think as always.
