Pretty good production. Should help hold me over till the new series starts.

Anyone know the name of the song that starts at 7:47 in the last one?

I watched the whole thing and it was pretty good, especially for an amateur effort. Funnily enough this is kinda exactly what I've wanted to do for awhile, especially after that "greatest driving roads" episode lol.

Favorite things: The San Francisco montage was pretty well done (driving through San Francisco is a rather interesting experience, and they captured it pretty well), they had good cinematography and audio for a low-cost effort. I rather liked the guy who drove the Fiat.

Meh things: The Dodge driver was kinda douchey and they really did not pick very good roads. I know all the roads they drove, whether they were featured or not, and I could pick ten more roads in those areas that are superior drives.

Overall, now I wanna film my favorite roads tongue.gif

Just watched the whole thing as well. Like Clark said, it was a great for an amateur production. I wish I could drive out there in CA. No roads like that around here thumbs_down.gif

Makes me wanna go driving now!

thumbs_up.gif overall. Worth a watch.

It's 3AM, and I just spent the last hour or so watching that and I must say that it was extraordinarily well worth it. That was an excellent amateur production - I really hope they make more.

Clark, to your point, if the Neon driver toned it down just a bit, it'd be a great crew. I think their personalities played off each other quite well.

It's definitely worth a watch and I found it genuinely entertaining. thumbs_up.gif

I kicked around a similar idea but never got any further than that.

Yeah that's true. It felt like he was playing it up for the camera, if he had just been himself he would've done a lot better. Fail for saying the BMW had a V6 though.

I wonder if the guy that drove the BMW really dresses like that in real life or if he just wore that kinda clothing because he was driving the BMW canadian.gif
