I have read that in London they will have driverless Cabs by 2021 . I thought you need eyes up your bum with the people and bikes it’s a nightmare during the week .

It's all good on paper, but in the real world it won't always work!!

Owning an automatic was bad enough....I like to drive the car, that was the whole idea of getting my licence.

Yes I think it did I wonder what happened , Clarkson said on GT that if a car had to hit some kids one side and a old boy the other has it been programmed to pick the man ?

Maybe the BBC should employ this fella reviewing his dads lovely 3000E!

My word, what is he wearing?
Very nice car though! 8-)

Andrew.

Nice car and sounds great. I wonder if it's sold and how much he was asking.....

The Count is back on for a new series of Counting Cars- Friday at 8PM on Blaze. Fans of American cars, especially the custom scene, will be happy!

Thanks for sharing, Andy!
The trouble with Blaze is that it's not one of those channels that I watch much as there is hardly anything on it that's worth the bother.
I saw the trailer today about the new series of Counting Cars and thought it was my duty to report that info on the forum....... :whistle: :lol:

I thought it had been mentioned within this now quite lengthy thread :?

We have Blaze in our favorite channels, but only for a couple of programmes...

I watch American Pickers and Forged in Fire, but that's about it.

Just watched the new Fifth Gear, as they had the new Mustang and Camaro which is also now available in the UK.

VBH also road tested some older Amerian V8's for £10K.

It's on Quest again tomorrow at 3pm :cheers:

Andrew.

Watched this last night as there was nothing better on....Elo admitted he doesn't read the buyers brief.

Scirocco for under £5000 was surprising :o

I thought he would have picked the Scirocco or Stag too.

I did but sort had it on in the background again . After you said the classic bloke does not read what the customer wants it has made sense . But some of the cars are really nice but the price seems a little high to me .

Me too, I don't pay that much attention to the show now.
The big surprise for me was that Elo's hairdo fitted inside that Mini! :lol:

I try and watch Jay Leno's Garage on Dave Tuesday at 8pm.

He is quite a humourous guy :)
