Note: as we have no in depth details of all earlier episodes ..in place of the episode # ..we have the broadcast year.
Also cars only get *** stars if tested on the show (not if just driven briefly by the hosts)

This was Top Gear when it lasted just 30 minutes and talked about residuals, fuel economy, insurance and dodgy dealerships. No wonder is was axed in this format.

No. Thats for new top gear 2002-2009. But there is 2 good channels with old segments from top gear from the 1990s. Here they are:

note the second one some vids have bad sound quality and when you turn your computer and speakers up remember to turn it down again before watching a good quality video.

RIGHT

I have uploaded more than 150 videos of Old Top Gear dating from 1988 (including Jeremy Clarksons first appearance testing a Bentley Brooklands which has been converted into a two door coupe in early 1988
and have uploaded every upisode up until 2001

I added pictures from S11E07 [1983]: "William Woollard is in Warsaw to look at the Polish car industry and motoring in Poland. Sue Baker compares the Zastava Yugo 45, Skoda Rapid Coupe, Lada Riva and FSO Polonez." The whole episode is available at YouTube [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CU6NUInl9dk].

Weasel1984 & Jale: Please help! ;) [Do you guys think we can upload sth more from that episode?]

NOTE: YouTube & end credits says it is 1983, but imdb [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0948362/] shows 1984. I'm not sure which date is proper.

1983, but the rule is we do not list traffic/background cars in this type of shows. What might be added is the white Polonez with red plates, visible during the end credits. I really belive it had to be the car visible from the inside during the episode. Also it was in interesting trim - Lux or X (if domestic version).

Armstrong Siddeley was not formed until 1919.

If AA20 is a post 1919 car I would be extremely surprised, especially as it is a 1903 De Dion Bouton.

Thanks. I don't really understand older license plates. But the other cars, they'll be listed, right? I've also noticed that, besides the RS 3100 and Angela Rippon's Capri, no other ones are currently listed.

This will show you what an Armstrong Siddeley looks like, you do not need to understand the registration system. The plates are not license plates.

I donít know about the other cars, and I donít watch Top Gear, I think I have better things to do.

Ok. I just understand the current reg system, the one from 1983 to 2001, and the one from 1963 to 1982.

No worries, just concentrate on post 1963 cars, there are some of us who lived with the earlier system.

If you'd like to add them, you may add the thumbs on existing pages of the individual vehicles. If there isn't a page for a similar vehicle, you are free to submit them as separate entries :)

UK Horizons went defunct in 2004, but there is a chance you can see reruns on BBC World or BBC Prime.

Just wondering, should we list Rally Report and Top Gear Motorsport, along with other spin-offs of this show as separate movies/tv shows?

Considering that we are trying to limit the number of reality TV shows added to the site, I would say no. I don't think any of the admins are looking to expand this title with offshoots.

At the top is the link to a 1983 episode of the show about hill climbing. At the start there is a few quick scenes of cars participating in the Prescott Hill Climb. Should we add these cars?

Thanks. I was having a bit of trouble, especially since there is no VW logo on the grille, I thought it was a Citroen.
