I know they played Modern Way by Kaiser Chiefs when they were unloading the cars in the beginning, and Honest Mistake by The Bravery in the dodging part. I can`t remember the name of the parking one, but it sounds way familiar. Anyone else know?
Well, actually, I`d have probably already been... In my pantaloons.
Top Gear started in the 1960s. By 2000, viewing figures had dropped and the BBC stopped making it. They didn`t formally cancel it, but they weren`t making new ones. The whole Top Gear people (presenters, producer, etc) went to Channel 5 instead. Since the BBC owned the copyright to the name "Top Gear" for a TV program, the Top Gear people renamed the program "Fifth Gear". So Fifth Gear is Top Gear.
A year later, the BBC restarted Top Gear in a different format, making it an hour long instead of 30 minutes. No adverts, so that`s really 60 minutes, not the usual 44 minutes with 16 minutes left empty for adverts - if it`s fitted into a 60 minute slot on a channel with adverts, a lot has been cut. Top Gear resurrected was built around an old Top Gear presenter who did the silly segments in the mid 1990s before leaving the program - Jeremy Clarkson.
If you took out the engine of the top car, the wheels, the base, and just stuck the upper Chassis + Chairs to the roof of the other smart, I reckon you could bring the weight down quite a bit, make it more stable....
But this isnt really a double decker car, its one car on top of another.
And actually, TopGear raced double-decker cars at least three years ago. So the title is inaccurate.
You know, that arrangement might actually be feasible if you remove the engine block of the top vehicle, to save weight and crap.
Just put some lawn chairs on the top of the car and duct tape them in place. :-P
