Agreed!! Well Said...

Re: Top Gear features the srt8!

Rutledge is a bum, total disgrace to the show and car world. Plus the '14 SRT would've run that RR closer. Nie trucks all around and I didn't know Lingenfelter messed with Escalades but why not I guess haha. All in all, a solid episode of a crappy show.
