Everyone remembers them, you probably had one growing up (possibly still do)—a Lamborghini Countach poster circa the 1980s. The Countach is a dream car unlike any other, adorning more walls and inspiring generations of automotive enthusiasts all over the world. But everyone knows it’s a piece of crap. Never meet your heroes, kids, you’re often disappointed. Is that always the case? The Top Gear America hosts beg to differ and the producers aren’t going to make it easy on them, so they’re back at Thunderhill Raceway Park to find out if dream cars are more than just poster art.
Dream cars aren’t always the flagship models of boutique Italian sports car makers. Take the Top Gear America hosts for example: Right off the bat, Rob Corddry has a polarizing vehicle in this category, a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Eccentric as always, Rob, but that’s why we love you. Dax
