Anyone else watching Top Gear?

Anyone else watching Top Gear where they have a viggen as one of the cars? It's on the History Ch if anyone wants to watch it. Repeat will be on next Tuesday at 8pm eastern.

I wanna know where he found it for $3500.

Nice that the Saab was the only one to do it. Imagine if it had intake exhaust rescue kit and a tune....

1. appropriately missing the jack covers
2. pretty sure the "strange sound" he heard at about 140 was the speed warning lol.

Checked out that other thread. Seems like it started all and well, then turned into a flame thread about which Top Gear is better, US or UK ha ha.

And looks like the Viggen made a return in this weeks episode, this time it gets banged up a little =/
At least I think it's the same one? It's a Yellow one this time, maybe they painted it? Tore the whole thing up lol.

The car was definitely ruined. I think it was the same car from the previous episode though. Looks like they just painted the three cars from last week yellow.
