“I got a call on Friday night to say that the Prime Minister was on his way round to look at one of our cars,” used car salesman Iain Harris told The Daily Mail. “I thought it was one of my mates, winding me up.” Nope. David Cameron himself showed up and bought a £1,495 economy car.
If you live in British Columbia, don’t try to sneak out a quick text while driving just because you don’t see any cops on the road.

Our Jason Torchinsky is at the Lane Museum in Nashville, a place he considers close to his version of heaven here on earth (obviously sans the giant anthropomorphic Q*bert) and he’s done a live version of Jason Drives wherein he’s driven a real Amphicar. On the water!
It’s a little hard to come by any reliable information about the latest iteration of Top Gear before it airs. On the one hand, you have the British tabloids, who seem to have a rabid and unusual desire to take the show down.
