That video in itself was a better display of a car than the Adam Carolla video (of the Aston Martin) in another thread. Bravo!

If you had someone working the camera, you could have been on screen and it would have been even cooler. POV shots for extrended periods aren't my cup of tea.

The subject matter is much more photogenic than the guy filming.

At least you don't look like my grandmother in that picture. :lol:

I vote Jesda for US Top Gear. :thumbsup:

By all means, Jesda for "Top Gear U.S." host. Adam Carolla and his sidekick should be consigned to the auto show dust bin!

And while we are at it, Jesda should replace that dumb Eric Stromer on the home improvement shows. Jesda could do bathroom segments on "How to spend $100 grand on your bathroom remodel and get $20 grand results" on the Home Improvement Channel.

Not only can he talk and chew gum at the ssame time .... but he fills the whole screen with ease!

Nice video! I should do a video like that for the GS. I've done a few acceleration run videos, but nothing as comprehensive as that one. Maybe I'll videotape some of the drive down to Chicago this weekend..

I used to think that Saabs were really quirky. Now thanks to you and that girl I was going out with, who was also into Saabs, they're starting to grow on me more.

I still prefer Volvos. I always liked something about their boxiness.

^The only cars on the road that make the 70's & 80's RWD Cads look aerodynamic.

Jesda - you out-did yourself on that you. I reallyenjoyed it & that Dancing Queen song and the way you balance the camera on your head and never dropped it. Saabs? I like them, especially the newestones. Especially the 2010 Turbo Convertible. Good cars. Well made.

No, sadly they had a few hits over here in the '90s.

Ace of Base definitely made it to the US. I think anyone who ever lived in the 90's could recognize "The Sign".

Anyone.

AOB continued to release several albums and remixes long after their popularity in the US waned. After picking apart the collection down to just the items I wanted to routinely listen to, it was still 1.5GB.

Digging the avatar. Can't wait to see Wall Street 2!
