Having said that, it's likely one of the first...

Mustangs were nice.

When you work at home, there's only so much driving you can do - you'd be surprised at how much not commuting shaves off your bill ;)

I'm in my 9th year with my ZHP vert, it's rare for me to keep a car that long, but I've enjoyed it that much.

From all outward signs and appearances, Mmy guess is Clarkson's a raging alcoholic, he's not coming back anytime soon - he needs to take a fast trip to rehab, perhaps in one of his fast cars ;)
