  • Hammond's British, for Christ's sake! Can we stick with the British spelling, not the American misspelling?

  • You fell in love with that automobile. Now, you want to change it? So you marry a lovely woman and start noticing things the plastic surgeon could improve during the honeymoon? If you change that car, in fashion slight or profound, no matter what it can "do" afterwards, you will rue the day. If you want to race, you can select some soulless, hideous late-model skateboard designed by a committee of computers, as you will no doubt just crash it into a row of Portaloos anyway. As for Oliver, please enjoy her as she was the day you met.

  • Richard: Get Oliver into the Guinness Book of World Records. Here is how. Instead of making Oliver into something he is not, how about taking Oliver on a trip around the world as he is? "Oliver: Long Way Round" style show -- Now that would be something I'd like to see. Imagine if Oliver was able to drive in every country in the world, every country documented (Even if you could not do the entire trip yourself), it would be a GB of World Record for a car of that age to do the trip on its own with a little help (new tires and normal maintenance would be expected) from his friends. Put a tracking device so we could watch his trip live and donate the proceeds to charities of each country traveled in. Now that would be a show I'd love to see! It would also be a trip I'd love to make!

  • Definitely would watch a show with Hammond and Olver, even if he left it stock and just tootled around for giggles.

  • Sensible modification for Oliver: install a Daimler 2.5 L V-8 or Rover 3.5 L V-8 backed up by a Tremec 5-speed. Your choice of rear-end but maybe a quick change? Ditch the SU carbs on the Daimler or whatever the Rover might have and adapt a throttle body FI. How much extra weight would that be on the front-end? Subframe connectors?

  • I would watch the Oliver show as long as it is called OLIVER!!!!!! and at the end of the introductory credits it has the audio clip of Richard shouting Oliver from top gear

  • Might get killed in the comments for this but you should bring Oliver to the U.S. Drive him on the high banks of Daytona. Do drag racing with him. Then cap it off on a half mile dirt track in a Saturday night feature.

  • I really expected Oliver to have had a full on frame off and be tucked away somewhere. Richard seems to be a lot like the rest of us, more projects then time or ambition.

  • Im not super into cars like some but surely Oliver is more just a chassis? By doing the work talked about in this video you'd change the ride, the sound, feel of the car. Would be awesome to see him out on the road on adventures whatever you do but would it genuinely feel like the same car after making all those changes?
