    take a quick walk thro & then jay lights it up thro the streets of LA. after warming it up, gives you a burnout & some good speed.

    he even teaches you how to do an italian tune-up. i've been doing it for years, never knew the official name tho..:c

    I like Jay Leno if for no other reason than he's a car guy. And fuck Stern for not being one the pussy.

    Attended the Tonight Show a couple of years ago and they had a little concert in the back lot after the show. We were standing around near the back of the crowd and out comes Jay. He hopped into a pristine 65 Mustang GT350 and took off. Sounded great.

    I did too, but I've come to respect him for being as hands on as he is with his collection.

    when they pass you on the highway it's like the car is all engine: it takes so long for the passenger section to go by.
