Jay Leno’s Garage
February 28, 2012 1:19 pm ET
Legendary actor and funny man Jay Leno has lead his life on network television, entertaining a crowd each night and delivering the news in punchy chuckles. But when Leno’s not performing for millions he’s devoting his life to his second love, his cars.
Closest estimates put Leno at nearly 90 cars and 80 motorcycles. He collects the best of the best so it’s not shocking to find out that 4 of his cars are made by General Motors.
He’s chosen to collect the 1955 Buick Roadmaster, for Leno this car is chalk full of memories. After buying it in 1972 for $350 Leno spent the next year fully restoring it. For him this isn’t just a car he rebuilt, it’s the car that not only took him on his first date with his later wife, but it is what carried him to his first night on the Tonight Show.
Continuing on with the classics Leno expanded his growing collection with the 1965 Chevrolet Nomad.
As much of a fan of the new as he is of the old Leno’s garage wouldn’t have been complete without the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette C6.
Jay Leno has an impressive collection and we’re glad that some of his most favorite cars were built by General Motors. Click here to see more about the cars in Leno’s garage.
