    Yeah, except it's not even really as the S-Max is designed and sold by Ford Europe in Europe, which as far as I know has little to do with Ford North America.
    i was waiting on a moment, but the moment never came. all the billion other moments, were just slipping all away. i must have been tripping, we're just slipping all away. just ego tripping.

    Who would trust Top Gear? I would not let Jeremy Clarkson decide my next car. He would probably suggest I buy something weird.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    Who would be as stupid to think that Top Gear consisted solely of Clarkson?
    Thanks for all the fish

    They were damned right to give the Roadster win to the MX-5 RC... but not the Big Car win to the Ford S-Max.

    Well the S-Max became Europe's COTY.

    Too bad Top Gear aren't based in Australia... or the Big Car win would go straight to the VE Commodore.

    Well, the 599 is an excellent car. Plus, the LP640 has been very crash prone.
