The 2904 of 2008

Top Gear goes slumming

Well against all odds, and after belching out the carbon emissions of a small banana republic, The 2904™ arrived in San Francisco on a cool November morning! Lessons were learned from 2007: more power and more fuel!

So this year's adventure was dominated by American steel with big engines and huge fuel tanks. Last year's losers were transformed into this years winners with Team Creative Film Cars rolling into SF after 38 hours and 41 minutes defeating their well rusted opponents with aplomb (and plumbing in the form of a extra 22 gallon fuel tank in the trunk).

Once again, against all odds and rational thought, everyone car made it across. And, more importantly, fun, and a funky stench was had by all.

The results:
1st: Team Creative Film Cars: 38 hours, 41 minutes. (1996 Chevrolet Caprice Classic - Police Spec)

2nd: Team Flying Hellfish / Stealth Bucket: 40 hours, 59 minutes (1999 Buick Regal)

3rd: Team CFC 2, Electric Boogaloo: 41 hours, 8 minutes (1996 Ford Crown Victoria - Police Spec)

4th: Team Wheels on Meals: 45 hours, 8 minutes (1995 Honda Accord)

5th: Team Top Gear: 53 hours, 50 minutes (1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic- Police Spec)
