What better way to arrive at the Emmy Awards than in your very own limo that you've designed and built yourself?
That's exactly what the "Top Gear" (Tues., 9 p.m. ET on History) team did Tuesday night, and they not only raced each other there, they also dragged some nervous-looking celebs along for the ride.
Glamazon Terri Seymour had to share a ride with Rutledge Wood in his old jalopy masquerading as a stretch VW Rabbit pick-up. "I'm not going to have to drive, am I?" she asked anxiously.
Meanwhile, "DWTS" judge Bruno Tonioli was paired with Tanner Foust in a much more impressive looking ride: a 1987 stretch Corvette (in red, natch). However, judging from Tonioli's pleas to be let out and his shrieks every time they hit a bump, it wasn't a smooth ride.
"That was like the Titanic hitting an iceberg," Tonioli said of one particularly ferocious encounter with a pothole. "We are going to sink, darling! We are going to sink!" he warned.
However, Cloris Leachman and Adam Ferrara had a much more fun time in their "Popemobile," a.k.a., a converted 1969 Lincoln Continental. Ensconced in a comfy armchair in the rear turret, Leachman yelled instructions at Ferrara as they raced through Los Angeles.
Then, disaster struck and Ferrara crashed the Cloris-mobile. She swiftly hopped out and left him there to fix the problem.
Eventually, all three celebs made it to the Emmys in one piece, but it seems a safe bet that Bruno never envisaged himself hitting the red carpet while yelling "Somebody help me!"
