Default Top Gear Replication?

Ford says "Built Ford Tough" so I thought tree should be a gauntlet laid down. They should try to do what Top Gear UK did. They have to do exactly what Top Gear did. There needs to be a proof of doing so. This would be to see how the Ford F-150 could compare to an 80s Toyota. A brand new 2014 Ford FX4 in red. 5.0 engine and do EXACTLY what they did. PLEASE, SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!
Thanks guys so much for looking at this thread, Caleb

*****UPDATE*****

How about same year model truck, and same color, the basic engine, just a nice old f100

Well, if I ever get the urge to own a truck that's been sank in the ocean, or dropped off of a building, I'm getting me an 80's Toyota, other than that, I'm sticking with Ford.

That show was awesome!! They were trying to determine if toyotas really are post apocalyptic cars. I think it was what, a 20 story building they blew up with it on the roof and they still got the truck to run?

That early '80s Toyota didn't have 25% of the electronics of a modern vehicle. It would be finished after is was sunk in the ocean.

The fuel pump, for one, was manual, not electronically controlled.
