I don't normally watch any shows that aren't fiction, and
I really don't care much about cars, but this show is pretty
entertaining. Jay Leno, former host of "The Tonight Show"
has always been a huge car collector and fan. He has
hundreds of cars. He collects cars like I collect beanie
babies or Star Wars figures.
Normally if I forget to record a new show, I can find it
online or On Demand. Finding this one was tough. CNBC is not
"On Demand," apparently, at least with my cable. I could
only find it on Amazon Prime. It was worth it, though.
Jay interacts with various other car collectors and others,
like race car drivers. Apparently Tim Allen is also a big
car fan and collector, and they've had a friendly rivalry
going on for years. They both like what's called "Muscle
cars" - big cars with powerful engines made between 1965 and
1972. I grew up around that time, so that part was kind of
Jay Leno is a comedian, of course, so he keeps the show
light and fun, and often humorous as well. I would actually
rather watch this show than "The Tonight Show." It's a
lot more fun than watching Leno joke around with some actor
that he doesn't care about. He gets to pick and choose
what's going on with this show.
I read an article about the show in Entertainment Weekly.
They said that normally, a show like this would cost too
much because the cost of insuring all of those vehicles
would be astronomical. Since Jay owns the cars, and he
doesn't care if they get damaged, then it doesn't cost them
much. That's the way to do it. Hey, when do I get my
show about my Elvis collectibles? Hello????
You should check it out if you like cars or Leno. I think
most guys would like this show, and probably a lot of women
would be surprised, like I was, that it was very
