Favorite T.V. Show about cars

Just wondering what car themed T.V. shows are your favorites.

Counting Cars on the History Channel is mine. They kick butt restoring those 60's and 70's muscle cars.

People may disagree with this but mine is Top Gear....wait for it....USA...

I don't think I've met someone who likes the US version...me on the other hand dislike the UK version.

Second to that would actually be a tie between counting cars and fast and loud. I hated fast and loud when it started but I like it a lot now.

I like both of the Top Gears but you have to appreciate them in a different way...haha

Counting cars isn't too bad but like any "reality show" you have to ignore the things that are obviously scripted.

I need to set my DVR for some of these. Right now its only set for Top Gear US.

Early Top Gear is still the best. Ya know, when they actually reviewed cars?! The last few series are way too scripted and campy. I want to see more awesome cars on the track and less "segments" where they act like idiots.

Fast and loud...could be a Tx. thing...could be that I identify with the attitude.

You can choose to be anything you want on the internet...why choose to be so stupid!

Any show related to cars I will watch if it is on. The only two shows that I have set up in my DVR are Overhaulin' and Fast N Loud, so those are probably my favs.

To Gear UK was good until the latest shows.... They seems to be sponsored bu Toyota and their reviews are skewed. Clarkson said the best car he ever drove is a Toyota.... What a bunch of BS.... The challenges, they used all Toyotas Hilux any other truck with the same.mods can do the same things.
