The ever outspoken Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson isn’t one to hold back saying what he feels and in the past has often given a mouthful to American made cars. However in recent times we’ve seen a change of heart as he’s grown fond of some of the meanest muscle cars to come out of the USA, for example the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Cadillac CTS-V.

Well, it now appears that Clarkson won’t be receiving a Christmas card from the top dogs at General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. In a recent BBC interview he stated why he was against the US government bailing out the big 3 American Auto brands.

“General Motors and Ford are massive. Ford’s been technically bankrupt, so far as I can gather, for many years - and if it were a corner shop it would’ve been gone many years ago. But it can’t go because it employs too many people and it’s too important. That’s the same with General Motors.”

“We’re coming to the end of days, economically speaking,” said Clarkson.
