Top Gear (UK) is my favourite british car show. i've done a few models of the more interesting cars they've used on the show, the ones from their various challenges.

I think there may be . But as the prices hilux command I'd hate to see one beat up. Unless it was built before they messed it up. Lol

I know I have seen some newer ones on evilbay were the sellers were asking well north of $100, I would love to get my hands on one, but not at that price, and like you said, there is no way I would do what they did to the real one to kit a cost that much.

These are great builds. Makes you wonder how you could stop laughing after each show long enough to build.

Love em all. TGUK is one of my favorite shows. It is also the only car show that my wife will watch with me. The US version cant hold a candle to the original. Someone told me yesterday that TGUK is one of themost watched TV shows in the world.

I've heard the same. If you search You Tube there's a segment from 60 Minutes where the three of them are interviewed. Something like 35 million viewers.

I haven't watched more than 35 minutes of TGUSA.....
