    Seems that some factions in Argentina aren't quite over losing the Falklands / Malvinas war...

    This is absurd, when are the Argies going to get over it already?

    This is like if the United States claimed the Bahamas just because it is next to Florida ...

      Old news. I think this was already run here at ACG about two weeks ago. But then...so what if Top Gear got ran out of some place, like TV programing?

        I saw that episode. It didn't help that one of the license plates end FLK which apparently means Falklands to the Argies.

          Technically, they were run out of Tierra Del Fuego. While they were in Argentina proper, they had no problems. But, we know the Argies are just a bunch of sore losers

          My biggest gripe is that they kept referring to the General Belgrano as a battleship. Even May did that, and he's supposed to be an "expert" of military hardware. Whatever.

          Actually, that's not my biggest gripe. Ruining that beautiful Mustang is my biggest gripe. Especially since I'm looking for that exact year and model at this time.

                  Shouldn't that have been MLV?

                    Too bad, tough love. Big deal. They do have their right to their own opinions. Clarkson isn't easy on the US, but I'm not easy on the UK. They're also hard on themselves and the UK. No one is safe, and that's okay. And yes, they are sarcastic...they're supposed to be, it's not a serious documentary on cars. Just some old guys that know their cars and have a love for what they do and try to have fun with it.

                    Yeah, that was funny. But so what?

                        That's Funny! you used Beautiful and Mustang in the same sentence.

                          Hey! Yes I did, and I will continue to do so. Unless it's some later versions of them. Then I won't.

                          To even things out, I never use beautiful and Spitfire in the same sentence.

                              I'm pretty sure Clarkson would make an excellent Frenchman, if he'd only embrace his inner beret-wearing snail-eater. He'd love France, if he'd only let himself.

                              He did a series over a decade ago, "Meet the Neighbours", and the first installment featured France:
