Ford Escort (1997) by Charles01


  • I don't bother wearing a seat belt... The reason being... I only have a motorbike... No seat belts 😏 I do however wear full gear whenever I 'swing a leg over my bike'

  • 100% split podcasts

  • ALPINE A110!!!

  • Jack would be the dodgiest, most battered e36 there has ever been...ever.

  • thanks for the recommendations! will probably go for the paseo :)

  • Not wearing a seatbelt as you are worries about your clothes getting creased, but you're OK with your legs and face getting creased?? Moron.....

  • That 'Coventry' accent was strangely very Brummie :D

  • Never worn a seatbelt in 23 years of driving. I've been fined 3 times but I'll never wear one because its my choice

  • My dad doesn’t like wearing a seatbelt because he has broken his shoulder and collar bone and the bone sticks out and he said it pushes/pulls on it when he is driving also he has been told he is medically exempt

  • I don't care where you put the podcast on EEclone because I listen to it on Spotify so I don't have to look at you lot! Keep up the good work

  • Main channel

  • Alpina, Bugatti..LADS

  • Everytime I watch/listen to this I giggle at Gareth asking is it VAG early on in 20 questions but taking it back 😂 so close to the key!

  • Pirates wore the patch so they could go below deck and see instantly without waiting for their eyes to adjust, not at night.

  • Keep them on the channel but make sure they go in the Playlist

  • Keep on the main channel but if you start pumping out a lot more content (daily or so) then create a new channel.

  • Ethan is a Gwizz

  • 52:05 are you prince fucking charles or something, and by ex you mean late?

  • SF and SG Fozzies are 200k mi on the new gaskets, no problems (with the engine).

  • Main channel

  • If Jack were a motor vehicle, he would be a Royal Mail lorry

  • I dread to think what Alex was doing in Moreton. Maybe it was less... yuck back in the day.

  • Main channel

  • Fredrick I’m in the same boat my friend! I’m 19 and looking for something to fix up this summer. I hope you find something cool!

  • Keep it on the main channel!! Pleaseee

  • I just found the podcast because it's on the main channel and I've gone on a binge. I'd say keep it here.

  • keep it in the main channel!

  • I hear earls Court is quiet and more open than it used to be, boris is a complete money grabbing wanker

  • Cov ring road is a national treasure! The inside lane is for normal driving and the outside lane in for entering and exiting, it’s that simple. The slip roads however, well they’re promoting bumper cars.

  • 16:09 car has since been scrapped

  • Main Channel! I always catch it :D

  • Gareth's a south African bmw 325is

  • New channel + clips

  • Keep IT on the Malin channel

  • Bloody Ethan stole my search engine mention from my email I sent them but didn’t play my story hahaha

  • Keep the podcast on the main channel I reckon, I can’t listen to anything during work and it’s the only podcast I want to watch/listen to

  • The moment they mentioned there were no other french cars ... I was literally shouting Bugatti till my parents were looking at me and asked me what’s wrong 😂. Well done Ethan 👍🏾

  • Why is everyone from cov a yam yam in your accent 😂

  • as soon as ethan said french i thought of bugatti🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Jack has got to be a royal lorry.

  • i thought it was a dacia.... love this feature

  • yes yes yes yes more old school content on you guys!

  • To me, keep it on the main channel. Keep it all together, but make sure they are in playlists. After the podcasts I often click through other interesting videos I might have missed.

  • I would prefer to keep seeing it on the main channel. There are so many YT channels already. Lover the show!

  • Absolutely screaming Bugatti! Ethan what a lad! 😂

  • Coventry: outraged Rest of the country: I'll take it but what about Birmingham?

  • I went with the Venturi Atlantique, remembering from my Gran Turismo days. I didn't get the Veyron in 20 questions, as I was thinking it was German by being part of the VAG group.

  • glad they mentioned the mazda 2 , its actually my first car, cheap to insure with a bigger engine than a fiesta or corsa, very reliable and looks great

  • imagine car throttle sponsorised by car wow

  • Fresh deer on the side of the road means supper... My dads done that many times

  • Forget the podcast channel, we want BikeThrottle ;)

  • Make a dedicated channel

  • main channel

  • why u not using the van?

  • If only Gareth had asked is it VAG

  • When you guys start having guests on again you need to keep Gareth on as well

  • If Jack was a car: he has to be a dark green Subaru Forester

  • Mazda 2 is amazing. My wife has the JDM version and it handles like it's on rails and somehow manages to keep up with my mapped 150bhp diesel Pro Cee'd in the straights because that CVT gearbox is witchcraft. It walks away from my car in the corners though.

  • I got the Bugatti after he said French and not the big 3 french company and didnt know if it was maybe 4wd :D My second guess wouldve been Venturi

  • Go Ethan.

  • Jack would be a RoyalMail Lorry :D

  • Alex: A Hummer H2. Loud, wide, uses fuel like there's no tomorrow. And not quite as large as the H1 (but trying to be). Jack: A Reliant Robin. You never know what he's gonna do next. Ethan: An 80s Jaguar. High maintenance and never quite as posh as he thinks he is. Garreth: A Holden UTE. Kinda cool, kinda exotic but not the most useful car. And keep the podcast on the main channel, please.

  • Jack would be a Volkswagen Bora pd130 with a MK4 golf front end. Alex would be a Honda civic that lives in the VTEC. Ethan would be something like a Chevrolet kalos. Gareth would be something like a disco 3

  • I need more midlands accent!!!!!!


  • Not knowing bugatti is French..... HOW THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS CAR GUYS????? My mum even knows this and she thinks our Boxster is a Beetle

  • I was thinking of calling him "Post Office brake pad wear reduction" But it's not fast off the tongue.

  • Haven't got a "racing driver" friend... but I guess almost everybody has that friend that considers himself the best driver on the road,;always being critical and raging at other drivers... even being that annoying passenger seat driver... but he's also that one friend that gets the most tickets, damages his car the most and has totaled multiple cars. And of course, never his fault.

  • main chennel

  • What if the car is so old it dosent have seatbelts

  • Keep on Main channel

  • I was screaming Bugatti at the bloody screen 😂😂

  • “That just leads you down dark holes” Gareth is acc the funniest, not appreciated!

  • Main Channel!!

  • Keep it on the main channel please

  • Keep it on the main channel

  • when you did say french car company ( with 2 guest left ), i had alpine and bugatti since there are french, but i was more for the chiro or diva , but not the veyron

  • 29:00 going off of size, Jack Is a honda city and alex is the motocompo in the boot

  • Gareth that's the afrikaans thing to think. Mmmm dinner. What a chop.... 😂😂

  • Love the lack of any attempt to hide their contempt for some of the absolute bells that email in 🤣🤣

  • Bugatti maybe?

  • Did you guys forget to include the story in the thumbnail? Either I'm getting dementia or I don't remember a story about an escort and getting air... Also Jack would be an old escort is he was a car

  • Separate channel, allow swearing because the bleeping sound is so piercing and massively irritating!

  • Dedicated channel for the win

  • For some reason I really think Alex is a Dodge Neon SRT

  • Tell you what 'grinds my gears'. Morons that pointlessly vandalise interiors of lovely old Volvos!!

  • I got Bugatti as soon as he said French!

  • I'd say keep it on the main channel but, I'm happy with whichever option gives us more content. Keep up the great work guys.

  • Not trolling, a genuine question from a fan - why is Alex’s face pulling an expression on the thumbnail for all of these videos as if he’s the star of the channel? All of you guys are great together, but it seems as though it’s always about Alex.

  • 33:28 bugatti chiron/veyron but dunno if ethan would think of that

    • hell yeah supprised he went that niche

  • 32:32 my guess is 2cv

  • Good show! How about you check out The Duke Of London premises, perhaps the studios qualify as 'open space'.

  • Leave the podcast here. You guys post rarely to the point I alsome forget to watch your videos, separating the podcast from the usual videos might end up biting a piece of your overall audience. You guys are great, I love watching your cheap car videos, down to eart stuff. Wasn t impressed by the RS6 video because I personally won t ever be able to aford one

  • Keep the podcasts on the main channel Keep it all on one space

  • Ventrura for the French car

  • I live in cov, it’s a shithole

  • Bugatti was the first thing I thought about before anything I swear to god

  • Although I like the podcast being on the main channel, it may help the main channel by putting the podcast on its own separate channel.

  • An OLD mate saw a sheep at side of road when he saw it had 4 legs But after he left it was a 3 legged sheep..My m8 had leg of lamb for dinner..

  • Separate channels, some people dont like podcasts in general so its crap to see a car throttle upload for it to be a podcast!!
