I enjoy this guys channel, but his review of the 86 GT was very unpleasing to me.

He uploaded a video today of him driving an 85 GT. I was pleased to hear him say nothing but good things about it.

I figured the owner might be someone of the forums.

I love RCR but his original Fiero review was very... Artistic... But this one was fun! He totally digs them. Wish the guy could of offered up more info about Fieros to him though...

It's funny when he hits reverse at a light. Don't know why he insists on driving with the lights on.

He is actually writing for Road and Track, you can hear his take on the Fiero here.

It is not a "positive" review, but it is not negative either. He points out some important faults about the car and why it has social status that it has. Keep in mind that this is based on the Fiero(85 GT) he drove, not all Fieros ever.

Because head lights go uuuuuupppp. If you never have, watch his car reviews. He focuses on the culture of the car way more than the specifications or driving feel, and he does an amazing job.

Sorry just not a fan. When you spend more time reading the visor and really not having a clue about the car how can you share much with those who don't know.

I would think before driving a car he would brush up a little bit at least with the owner.

The owner I think was about ready to take over by the time he hit reverse.

That is the whole point. It is not about driving the car, it is about the culture that surrounds it. Here is one on the Dodge Ram. It is a comedic take on car culture, not a real review. That being said, his humor is not for everyone and I totally understand not liking the reviews.

Sorry but that is my point I just am not a fan of this. I do not find it informative. I do not find it funny Etc. Just not a fan.

If I want to laugh I like Larry the Cable Guy, Jerry Seinfeld, Ron White etc. But I hate Russell Brand.

The only comedian I really like on cars is Jay Leno as you can tell he has the passion for cars of all types.

I just found nothing of value to me here. If you like him that is fine but I just don't.

That make sense, he certainly has a style that is not set up for everyone.


Jay Leno's garage is incredible. Watching his interview on Top Gear where he discussed the F1 completely changed how I see him, he is hilarious and a huge car nut. It is like watching your sarcastic, loaded, grandfather talk about your favorite hobby.

I have dealt with Jay and I have friends that know him. He is what you see. The guy is an honest true gear head and nothing less. He is open minded and a good judge on cars. He knows his stuff history and equipment wise.

I have a Tonight Show hat signed by him in my car room. He sent that for some work I did for him. Means a lot to me from him as being a car guy more than a TV host.

Cool vid. I also want to point out the negatives of this production, but it is just always welcome to see interest in our little obsessions.

Jay Leno... Incredible car guy! I watch his featured cars. Really cool to see just what is out there.

The silver Fiesta that is so often in the background is one of my all time favorite cars. A V8 mid engine rocket.
