I don't know how many of you know of this show, but it's name is Top Gear. It's a British show that stars cars. They test drive Lambos, Ferraris, etc. In this episode, they are supposed to go to America and buy a car for under $1000 US. Supposedly, they are in Miami, but if you skip ahead to 5:54, you will see a sign from the corner of Wyoming and Michigan... unless I'm mistaken. Help?

Heh, seems you're right. There's a Yum Yum Donuts at 9515 Michigan and Club Venus at 9506.

How do you "skip ahead" on a streaming video?

Damn, Top Gear is a great show. Try and find the clip where they almost get mobbed by rednecks, pretty funny.

But yeah, you're right, it's Michigan Avenue. Good eyes.

That sure was... I pass that corner every day. Seem as if there were a couple of Detroit scenes where they always seem to say they are going to places that are the "lowest of the low"...

So was the theme of this show basically to rip on everything American? I won't lie. I chuckled a lot, but geez. How dumb were these guys to think they could buy a decent car for a grand?
