  • The cars are cool, but Jay is better. Just a great man's manly man, avg cool regular dude who really knows and loves cars. I met him many times up at the rock store in the 1980s on our two stroke motorcycles. You could talk to him for hours about engines carbs cars. Truly a great guy and the best late night host ever. Actually funny and likeable

  • I must say I hate the way Jay always trashes old muscle when he compares it to new. The way he describes that 70 hemi challenger you'd think it was 78 Dodge Aspen. I'll tell you what Jay, if it's too much of a burden for you to have that 70 hemi I will relieve you of the burden.

  • My second car was a 66 Coronet… And here I thought I was the only person on earth to identify it as a Muscle Car…
    Beat tons of Fords and Chevy's in the Quarter…
    Lots of top end runs too now that I think back… Pretty sure super fast reflexes and guts had a lot to do with that…

    Vanishing Point (Barry Newman) was one of my favorite movies… Two Lane Black Top was good, but too much drama and the best scene in Dirty Mary & Crazy Lary was the last scene… Not because the movie was over, but because it was a supprise… I took better care of my Guts after that…

  • One of the aesthetically pleasing outcomes of the '70 Challenger was the exterior front fascia. The designer did a beautiful job in filling the front cavity that was sandwiched between the bumper and slightly overhanging hood. The result was a purposeful and slightly mysterious appearance.

  • I know Jay Leno is worth like $400 million but it’s crazy he can afford all those cars along with fixing and detailing them.

  • And Jay Leno uses a Tesla as his everyday driver.

  • Sorry Jay but unless you're doing stock, these are not real muscle cars. Converting a Tornado or a Ford that way? Ummm, no. Maybe favorite modified muscle cars and even that isn't all that accurate. Crap, you can stuff a big V8 in a Vega and get muscle….but it's no true muscle car. NO GTO's, Stage 1's, big block Mustangs, Corvettes or Camaro's?

  • I have a 70 challenger would not trade for the new one

  • We HAD to do a whole bunch of work. Had to. Jay loves to do any tedious job he can think of.
