Jay Leno's Cars Watch

New, 4 comments

Vanity Fair talks to Jay Leno about, what else, his crazy vintage car collection and learns the story of the time he got stopped on the freeway driving a wooden car: "I do have the distinction, however, of having the oldest car stopped for speeding on the freeway. My 1906 Stanley Steamer. I got tagged at 76 miles per hour. The cop was more intrigued that it was made of wood, and it was carrying an open flame, than the idea that I was going 76. But when you go by a cop in a wooden car that’s on fire, going 76, they tend to go, 'Hey, hey. What’s that?'" [Vanity Fair, image via Jay Leno's Garage]
