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 ;)

Perhaps you'd be better suited to a new Corvette, or one of the Chrysler "Hellcats" models at 700HP plus.
