    In phoenix where I used to live there was this big blue bus with the top-half of a van welded to the top and what looks like a house attached to the back.

    You know, that arrangement might actually be feasible if you remove the engine block of the top vehicle, to save weight and crap.

    In case anyone`s wondering this is Channel 5 UK`s answer to TopGear. Called Fifth Gear, it`s, erm, not as good a show.

    And actually, TopGear raced double-decker cars at least three years ago. So the title is inaccurate.

    How about some sort of wagon to pull behind it to fit more people that you can detach when you dont need it.

    You see this is why I don`t like IAB, making me watch this thinking "Hey this is the worlds first and it`s going to be a serious invention, but it may not be road legal". If I was imformed that this was a joke, I would have been more inticed to watch this.

    There are double decker busses the world over, but not double decker cars.

    But this isnt really a double decker car, its one car on top of another.

    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....

    To clear up the matter of which program it is:

    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.

    I think I`d need the toilet too if I`d just spent the time it took for my life to flash before my eyes on two wheels in a top-heavy suicide machine like that.

    Well, actually, I`d have probably already been... In my pantaloons.

    I used to hate smart cars till I got a ride in one. A smooth quiet ride, savings on gas pay for the vehicle quite quickly and it has a surprising amount of leg room (with my long legs I was appreciative)

    to everyone saying that fifth gear is no good. I love them because I won the porsche boxster from the first show of the new series!!! So i wont hear anything against them!! Yes it`s in my avvy!! Funny the only reason I joined is to stick up for fifth gear, if the truth be known, I hardly ever watch it and only caught the last five minutes of the show I won the car from! (which was just the competition and the credits!!!)

    ... well, at least the music was good, even if the cars weren`t in the end.

    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?
