Hosted by legendary comedian and “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, the series explores our obsession with all things automotive. From classic cars to supercars and everything in-between, Jay is hitting the road to discover the most exciting, weird and wonderful vehicles ever made and meet the passionate people behind their wheels. Each one-hour themed episode features a mix of stunts, challenges, reviews, and celebrity interviews that showcases the colorful history of the automobile. Whether he’s exploring the story of an iconic brand, road-testing the newest super car, or investigating the latest automotive innovations, there is no wheel Jay won’t get behind to tell the story of our love affair with the car.
About Jay Leno: Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

  • Oh wow that is a beautiful, bad A-- Car Jay!!! I don't know what it is but the way they had design these cars back then ain't no comparison from today? I will always prefer the classics. Heck I'm 40 years old and I've been wishing for a 1930s car for a very long time. Though I may never own or drive one? But in Dreamland I can. Thanks for posting the video Jay!! Please take care and be safe.

  • Hi Jay, this is craftsmanship. So many of your cars are incredible examples of the ability we can admire in the deep understanding, knowledge and expertise that these individuals created with. Jay could you do a story covering the most tragic life of young Frank Lockhart . This self taught engineer would have altered history. I am sure you are aware of him. Thanks for your interest shared with so many of us around the planet.

  • Wonderful car. With those monstrous leaf springs and solid axels, those giant solid wheels and heavy drum brakes there's probably tons of unsprung weight, but when you look at the engine and transmission and the locomotive chassis you realize that the unsprung weight ratio is probably pretty low. It's a brute, but a very graceful brute. An elephant in tap shoes.

  • I just do not believe for one second that there is a greater car museum with all-working examples, with a more knowledgeable and passionate curator, anywhere - ANYWHERE - in the entire world. And in my 50 years or so, I have visited quite a few. It should have official national recognition and protection, and that includes these videos. To me, it's that important. And, failure to do this - allowing this incredible work to dissolve once its mastermind's engine finally gives up for the final time - will be hugely regretted in the future when people then realize what it was and what was lost.

  • Amazing car, but then, working on the engine must be a nightmare, so unpractical - no cylinder head, that pully drive on the backside, the drive system of the overhead camshaft, flimsy keys & locks, handbrake & gearshift handle blocking entry on the drive side.... Where was the designer with his thoughts ? Resulting in a typical British Mickey Mouse car... sure, looks great, maybe great to drive - that is if you can keep it in working order.... not simple.... By and large this car is a good example why British cars are nothing to have and why British car industry is so in the doldrums.... Modern Bentley being a case in point: They have stopped production, because nobody buys their expensive, unreliable white elephants anymore.... Even the new German owners - Volkswagen _ could not straighten out the British wrinkles...
