Jay Leno And Tim Allen Is America’s Response To Clarkson, Hammond, And May

Top Gear has had a great run up until it was ruined by some unfortunate circumstances. And then it was further destined for failure when it was rebooted for series 23. For awhile many worried that the days of automotive entertainment might be gone, only to be forever replaced with old reruns of Top Gear. While we wait for The Grand Tour to grace our streaming screens, there are other great alternatives are totally worth your time.

Jay Leno’s Garage surprisingly has had some really interesting things happening in the show. The most interesting event is probably him almost dying in a 2,500 horsepower stunt car that managed to roll over and over and over again. In the latest episode, Jay invites arch rival Tim Allen for a sleeper car race. They both showcased their “stock” cars, with Jay initially showing off his 1966 Dodge Coronet with a 426 Hemi. When Tim showed up in a highly modified 1955 Ford Club Coupe, that’s been surgically implanted with a supercharged Ford GT engine, Jay had other tricks up his sleeve.

We haven’t seen much interaction between these two guys, but given enough airtime and plenty of adventures, we might be on to something that can be as great as the old Top Gear Trio, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. We think American has to get on the ball with these two and get them a proper automotive show! What do you think America?

  1. I’m going to hope you’re joking here. I record and watch Lenos garage and I love Tim Allen, but you are better than hilarious to think they compete with Clarkson and company. I’m talking comic gold.

  2. Tim Allen has never been funny or interesting at all…I mean EVER..and to compare these two to Clarkson, Hammond or May is jackassery at its best…Leno and Allen equal zzzzzzzzzzzzz and that is being polite. Obviously you just don’t understand what makes those 3 guys tick, you are a retard or just plain hate cars…either one.

  3. I somewhat agree. They are truly car nuts/plus/their likable/plus/totally cool cars/plus/not quit the likable knuckle heads as the Clarkson crew, but that’s ALOT to ask for. STILL CAR ENTERTAINMENT!! Thanks Jay and Tim. It takes time to rose bud the seed. Hmmm

  4. Hold up nothing can replace those 3 monkeys but Jay is as close to petrol head as James may as far as tim Allen he’s more like Hammond still missing the Clarkson elements if we could find one that could be a great American version of the show

    • I agree with Jason,Jay and Tim are funny men,comics,they both need a “straight man” to bounce off of to make it work. I hate to say it but Matt LaBlounge ,(how ever you spell his name.) may be a 3rd that would work.
