One of my favorite episodes of Season 3 of The Grand Tour is when the boys drive from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea. Along the way, they visited the birth place of Joseph Stalin, Gori in Georgia. In the town was a Stalin museum, which included Stalin’s childhood house. While looking through the house, James May (the slowest man in the world) accidentally broke Stalin’s house and thought he was going to the Gulag.
While watching the Top Gear boys’ new show, The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime, they had a funny clip that showed an automotive company with the most unusual name imaginable. The hosts said that in order to search for this company, you have to look through a thousand Google pages of things you can’t unsee.
In BBC’s Top Gear, they had a challenge in which they had to make homemade limousines. Jeremy Clarkson, in particular, took a Fiat Panda and extended it to an outrageous size. By the end of the challenge, Jeremy’s Fiat Panda was eight feet longer than a bus. What would you do if you had a limo that big?
During WonderCon 2017, I got to ride an Iron Man themed car called the Renault Twizy, which I saw James May drive in St. Petersburg, Russia in Top Gear. Because I am a behemoth it was a tight fit, but it was fun to be inside a car that was superhero themed.
James May AKA Captain Slow and the slowest human being alive had discovered a new way to make a car. He constructed a car made of mud and everything went wrong. Too funny!
I have always been a fan of Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond especially since they started their new show The Grand Tour. One of my favorite of their stunts was recreating cars in unique and unexpected ways such as building homemade amphibious cars. In their new show The Grand Tour they took their innovations a step further by building cars made of nature. Jeremy Clarkson’s car, in particular looked like a combination of something from Mad Max and The Flintstones because it had a chassis made of animal hide, meat, and bones. What will these crazy men think of next?
I discovered something extraordinary on the news: a drivable 3D-printed car! The technology to create these cars was amazing beyond words and it gave me some ideas of what to include in my sequel series. Since my sequel series will take place in a futuristic world, I am thinking of including a more advanced version of this technology. I am getting excited thinking about it.
Here is a radically advanced robot I encountered at a car show.
