Top Gear Botswana Lancia Beta Coupe on ebay

Post by chazjeffries » Tue Jan 01, 2008 11:04 am

Those Brits have a weird sense of humor ! Or are they serious and this is the British equivalent to our "General Lee" Dodge Charger? http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Me ... toId=36159
And the bidding is starting at only three thousand British pounds which equates to $5958.59 US dollars!!! WHAT A DEAL !! :lol:

Well, TopGear does have 300Million Viewers.....

No really!

Anyway, it was Hilarous watching the guys try to take 3 bog standard road cars (an Opel called Oliver... Yeah, it's a it like my Sylvia, a Merc w123 and a Beta coupe) across the spine of afirca showing up the middle classes in the Home counties that have to drive huge 4x4's on the School run...

But if you do own a huge SUV then this is what you should really do with it!

And you lot think I'm bad, lol!

Both of those videos are a hoot to watch. A handful of codgers doing foolish things in old oddball cars.

Hmm... sounds like some people I know! :lol:

The episode with the Beta will air Monday 3/17 on BBC America. It then repeats the following week an hour later, as well as Sunday sometime in the AM I believe. No excuse not to watch it, unless of course you don't get that channel. :wink:
