Anyone else see that episode of Top Gear where the presenters drive some of the “best of the worst” of British Leyland’s offerings?
They also had one on Top Gear where they tested Russian and eastern European commie era cars. The showdown had Jeremy in a commie BL Austin Marina versus a Russian accented James in a Lada to see which commie car would win.
Clarkson, who I generally do not like because of the fat American and bush cracks to make his BBC bosses happy, ripped commie workers at BL. He said they spent more time on strike than making cars.
Yeah, I’ve seen the “British Leyland Challenge”. I think my favorite part was on the rough-surface test track, where the entire door fell off Jeremy’s Rover. The part where they filled the cars with water and then drove them while breathing through snorkels was quite entertaining, too.
