      5k for a 300zx??? (Edit) I understand now

    2. Adam Robledo

      My pt cruiser is a different animal compared that one 😂

    3. Mcbgaming95

      Lol carwow do it better this is wtf

    4. Jaime Butler

      Usa:*has a bunch of great sports cars* These guys: hey let's use something that isn't a sports car

    5. DR SensuBean

      U you ain't getting noooo z for less then $8000 here in America u less it's a au.....ohhh an automatic.... riiiiiiiight...and you didn't get the turbo or cruiser....

    6. Jason America

      How did anyone find a Porsche and 300z for 5k

    7. T Szyd

      I wish Ethan got the pt cruiser with the 2.4t, that would have been much better

    8. Nate Whitehill

      no shot they got a 300zx for $5,000

    9. Patrick Grieves

      Why would you buy a pt cruiser for America….

    10. Mechanertainment

      terrible american car like apples to oranges

    11. MalexPC's

      the 300zx is undoubtedly the best

    12. FishCap

      anybody else getting topgear vibes

    13. Mean Man

      “They scream America” As an American, I take great offense to that comment and suggesting that pice of garbage is representative of “American” fun vehicles.

    14. Uber sausage

      "JDM cars are so expensive nowadays". Meanwhile in Finland: Cheapest mx-5 on the general car website is 5300€ :(

    15. Martin Rupert

      Love the 300z

    16. 1980JPA

      So you guys just happened to get two "decent" sports cars and a pile of shit for the U.S. car. Thx.

    17. RiC SNARE

      300zx out there looking like it just came out.. aged beautifully

    18. theman inback

      Should have been a v6 Mustang, even playing field V6 RWD.

    19. Potato rocks

      I want jack to put a an RB in his 300zx

    20. transparent trash

      I don't think they could have chose a worse American "sports car"

    21. Keijo

      How ? How.. here in Finland that Porcshe costs atleast 15ke. And that Nissan same.

    22. tirekilling new-edge

      Man they really did america dirty on this lol

    23. Telefusion

      PT Cruiser: 1st, 2nd, 2nd = 1.67 300zx: 3rd, 1st, 3rd = 2.33 Viagra: 2nd, 3rd, 1st = 2 I'm pretty sure that means that the PT Cruiser won the competition and it's not even a sports car!

    24. dachanist

      Obviously the Boxster is the right choice, but where are you getting this magical $6500 clean Boxster 986? In Canada your looking at paying double for a rough one and triple for a clean one, and for that money I went for a 60,000km gt86 that's safetied, comes with summers and winters both on rims, isn't going to break and has a roof that won't leak. For that money you're looking at a questionable rx8 at best.

    25. WTF Car

      Not expected a 300zx here

    26. The Mike Fisher Channel

      Why on earth would you not pick up an early 2000s mustang GT of some sort for the American car? There’s no portion of a PT Cruiser that American car guys even care to think about

    27. Mrjarvisful

      Did they really have to take the tops down.

    28. squad master

      Smells like a hospital because that's the last place the previous owner went

    29. squad master

      God no please not the PT cruiser

    30. Dakota Williamson

      Putting the PT Cruiser in for America is like putting Seth Rogen in for the Olympic 100m dash

    31. Vincente Dearmore

      Doesn't even bring a turbo PT Cruiser. Shame.

    32. ace cnc


    33. Hunter Nash

      Why the fuck would take a pt cruiser get an old shitty mustang or like a freaking cobalt ss

    34. davin reeves


    35. jamie c

      This is some too gear level stuff

    36. Jurie Verster

      Just because of the pathetic choice of the American car, I will not continue to watch

    37. Aaron E

      I just love how they picked the PT Cruiser for my home country😂

    38. Michael Clark

      This is stupid af... For 5k there are so much better American cars, I mean fuck who buys a 5k boxster or 300zx those are legit platforms then you represent america with a PT loser, yes I am American however I daily a M3 and have a 570 with dp and tune for a track toy so I am partial to European cars but everyone was 16 at a point and most 16 year old Americans that are into cars with a 5k budget for an American car will go camera or mustang...

    39. Elitsa Georgieva

      “what we did wrong? “ literally lost time with the roof that didn’t got anything to do with the car speed

    40. JSlice1026

      Hmmm, why a pt loser instead of an sn95 mustang, or a catfish camaro or trans am ?

    41. Ciaran's Cars & Bikes

      I literally watch you three instead of the new top gear

    42. ChxrlieT407 T

      Pull the handbrake and not the foot brake on the PT!

    43. Adam Simpson

      What's the song name when Jacks drifting into the cameras?

    44. Michael Cronin

      The 300 is a beauty.

    45. Rich Revs1


      1. Rich Revs1

        I retract my previous statement the second I saw it’s an auto… it makes perfect sense of how he found it for so damn cheap. Holy fuck

    46. mds00

      The shitty American car for the price is about right. In the UK you get a good car for a packet of crisps. Here in Canada, you can just barely get a running car with an interior for $5k.

    47. Asmahan Umer

      Would you guys like to turn these cars into track versions by adding extra juices power I mean, it would be interesting content seriously!

    48. YesItsNineInches

      for me the 300ZX aged really well

    49. ZimmyMTB

      you'd think that a well-established automotive youtuber would know how to perform a burnout in a fwd car. tried to do a burnout using the brake pedal instead of the e-brake? cars use a front biased braking system, applying more braking to the front than the rear, rendering your fwd burnout efforts futile. unsubscribed.

    50. Adam Hamilton

      If I decided on a Chrysler for less than £5k I’d have gone with the 300C 😂 this is funny though

    51. Jamrug

      Very Top Gearish... I love it, please do more!

    52. PRL Reviews

      @ 11:33: that look you give your friends when you know your doing some dangerous but their going to love it 🤣🏎💨

    53. PRL Reviews

      The PT cruiser gear shifter reminds of the days when the only game console I had only contained two buttons and a joystick and we had to plug the game in with red, white, and yellow wires 🤣

    54. PRL Reviews

      Them: “boxster stands for boxer engine & roadster Me: I thought the tried to name it after the dog 😭

    55. Brendan Schoen

      Hold on now, you mustn't use the PT Cruiser as the bar for anything other than how fast you can ruin the reputation of of a car company.

    56. Kevin Mitchell

      This reminds me on the old top gear except not as vulgar 😂😂

    57. Yuku Hanna Montana

      When I think of a cheap American sports cars I think of the usual suspects, either a mustang or camero but a pt? A very very bold choice but damn if it wasn't the right one. Color me suprised...maybe I'll get one as a fuckaround vehicle lol.

    58. Greenwolf70

      Should gotten a crown vic or somthin

      1. Greenwolf70

        @yasio bolo ikr

      2. yasio bolo

        Maybe it’s because I’m american, but the idea that a PT Cruiser is not the most boring of these cars is nuts

    59. Rock girl

      “This or an imported MX5” Big up to Jack for taking one for the team and dealing with that car just to bring something a bit more unique

    60. Marcello Mori

      American: SN-95 Mustang GT European: Porsche Boxster Japanese: Mazda Miata

      1. Bogdan Rus

        Miata wouldnt stand a chance it can't drift, it has no power for the drag race. Least you want is an MR2, something with just a little more power to make the challenges somewhat competitive. Maybe a NA 180, but i dont think any clean ones of those exist.

    61. Relevant16

      The PT Cruiser is the last thing I would call American.

    62. Kron's Clips

      I think this is the real new top gear

      1. Rock girl

        Out of All the American cars you picked A PT.why?

    63. benanderson89

      I don't care that it's an auto; I'd have that 300ZX in a heartbeat and cruise like fuck everywhere.

    64. Cruz McKenzye

      I love that Porche!!!

    65. J.T. Rudik

      That pt cruiser looks way more euro stock than American... But first thing he thought was "oh that's merica right there" lol it's like you've never crossed the pond before... Lol

    66. J.T. Rudik

      You guess just can't help shite on American cars can you.... Don't be jealous the world fears American v8s...

    67. Joe Schubert

      Sounds like the boxster needs a new water pump soon lol

    68. Kyle Holcomb

      Should have chosen a old SVT Focus not a PT. Lol

    69. MrFreshman149

      Why a PT Cruiser for gods sake😆🙈. There are so many other cars…

    70. NO LIMITS

      That 300 sounds so good.

    71. Tom Robinson

      What has Ethan been smoking to consider a PT cruiser train wreck an actual sports car.

    72. soiung toiue

      Conspiracy theory: Ethan is secretly a car guy pretending to be clueless

    73. Shane Ducholke

      You can get a Turbo PT cruiser for under $5k and the Z300 Jas a 320hp option but you wouldn't get one for under $30k. Both would.destroy the hairdresser boxter

    74. Pat Johnson

      Jdm:300zx Euro:Porsche Boxster American:Fuckin Pt cruiser

    75. John Willis

      Maybe it’s because I’m american, but the idea that a PT Cruiser is not the most boring of these cars is nuts

      1. soiung toiue

        It’s funny that Jack could could have got a Nissan 350z and a mint condition Celica or even a RX 8

    76. Jordz Northover

      Are these guys even into cars😂😂 sounds like they like handbags on wheels

    77. Jonathan Kaufold

      Out of All the American cars you picked A PT.why?

    78. Bowser McDonald

      Whatever happened to the Honda prelude project car? I've been waiting for years now and still no mention of it being finished. Come on car throttle you slackers.

    79. M I L A Nミラノ


    80. Hex Core

      the greenscreen is so obvious tis uncomfortable

    81. GetMe OuttaHere

      The PT cruiser though... Why? I can't think of a worse choice in that era of cars.

    82. Duster Buster

      A pt cruiser is not a sports car they could have used so many other cars I mean damn use the HHR SS if you go that way at least that can keep up

    83. 12 5.0 Luna

      In what universe is the PT cruiser a sports car??..garbage comparison 💩💩

    84. El Dios

      Bro that turd better be srt4

    85. Ramy Fal

      choppy choppyyy

    86. Steven Foster

      This pisses me off I don't understand how these people can take a PT Cruiser and call it a sports car it's a CRUISER calling it a sports car is an insult to all sports cars not just American made ones. And yes I disliked the video without even watching it for that fact alone

    87. Minifan101

      It’s funny that Jack could could have got a Nissan 350z and a mint condition Celica or even a RX 8

    88. one shot

      Me expecting the American car to be a 2003 mustang and sees that shitbox 😔

    89. Bavarian Banshee

      Whenever Ethan beats Alex to saying something, or says something actually knowledgeable about cars, I just think *"He's becoming too powerful"*

    90. Ailsa Ni

      Conclusion: A boxter is faster in a straight line, but a pt cruiser is faster around a track. The more you know

      1. Vurph

        Stolen comment from this video and also it’s Boxster not boxter 🤦‍♂️

    91. ian Machiz

      Sports cars 💀💀pt cruiser??

    92. ras 47

      That 300z sweet

    93. ras 47

      If that pt is not a srt this is bs and yes im commenting before i see the video.. i mean come on ik alot of people hate the us but you didnt haft to do us like this lol

      1. Ailsa Ni

        Is it just me, or are the guys at top gear looking kinda weird this week?

    94. John Rodriguez

      I don't like American cars, but to be fair you guys picked the worst possible American car for this video

    95. north sider

      For 5k you couldn't find like a cadillac cts 3.5 or a dodge magnum or at least something better then a pt cruiser?

      1. benanderson89

        Magnum was never sold in the UK. Cadillac failed in Europe so they're really hard to find (the only CTS we got was the 2005 3.6L, and that's only 255hp and way heavier than the other two anyway).

    96. Piotr kukliński

      That jdm sounds amazing

    97. Mark Hillan

      American : your only cool if you have more Horsepower than the guy next to you. Euro : your only cool if you have the most expensive version of an already vastly overpriced car. JDM : doesnt matter what year it was made, how much bhp it makes or how many bits of the stereo no longer work....your still cool AF driving it 😎

    98. Lil Nito

      next time fiat multipla vs bugatti veyron maybe?

    99. Marco Gallo

      I'd keep that zx in the fleet if I were them, that thing looks mighty fine even if it has an auto trans. Great project

    100. Man ne

      That pt cruiser is just stupid. Should have bought some real american sports car like mustang , corvette or camaro for example..
