If you’re one of the hundreds of millions of people who used to watch the BBC version of Top Gear, also known as “The Greatest Show…In The World,” you’ll be happy to know that the new show with the three idiots should be back before your kids graduate from college. The new show is called The Grand Tour and the boys will be on the road most of the time doing ridiculous things that we all wish we could do while driving everything from supercars to rental cars. Here’s Erica’s Top Tip of the day: If you ever want to rent another car in your life, never answer yes when a car rental company counter employee asks you if you know who used to be on Top Gear, because they’ll know that you consider every rental car “The Fastest Car…In The World” and you’ll be at the mercy of Uber while you’re in Vegas for a “convention.”
Admit to nothing and refuse to answer anyone’s questions about why Hertz no longer permits you to rent vehicles from their Adrenaline Collection. I’m sure it has nothing to do with a long weekend in Las Vegas about 10 years ago and a black and gold Mustang Shelby GT that was allegedly returned in limp mode. There’s no need to explain what happened to the little clip that defeats the traction control button and why the back tires were almost bald. Maybe it just happened after politely filling up at the Chevron on Tropicana because of a bad batch gas they had in the tanks.
Anyway, here is a clip of the three idiots on location of their new show that I’m sure you will be illegally watching very soon. Click here for The Grand Tour: Gentle Rentals
