Here is Richard Hammond reviewing the new V6 Noble sports car. Only the year is 1999, and he's not on Top Gear.

Nope, Hamster is on "Motor Week" some British car show I'd never heard of. I knew MotorWeek for John Davis' soothing baritone, but this Brit one is news to me.

And Hammond isn't terrible! It's hokey, and he is surprisingly upbeat about one of the ugliest sports cars ever made, but the guy is polished. Now I see why he got the gig at TG.

MotorWeek Theater is our showcase of some of our favorite classic reviews from public television's finest motoring program. How does this video only have 86 views on YouTube? it has the little dude from Top Gear in it!
