I am sitting here watching Jay on Youtube and thinking it must be heaven if I want a car I could go get it. I saw his net worth and I bet they did not take into account his cars because a lot of them are priceless. Also if he does not want to spend current monies he can earn in a week in Las Vegas what I earned in a lifetime.

Don't care much for Leno himself, but I "love" the guy because of all the antique vehicles he has and preserves. Not many will do that today.
I'll watch any of his shows where he's presenting a antique or 2, and I admire him for all of that.

I hope nothing ever happens to his collection.

I agree OBL. I never saw his show but I have seen some of his stand up which is funny but his garage show is one I’ll watch again and again.

He has an amazing collection. Those are only the cars he chooses to show you...

Don't forget, this guy openly shares that collection with all of us on youtube and it
doesn't cost us a dime. I think he really does a great service to anyone who is
in any way interested in old cars and their history.
With my latest diversion, Cyclekarts, I've spent untold hours watching his videos
of the 20's 30's Grand Prix cars in his collection.

Hey Denny (or anyone else), sortta like Jay Leno, but any of you share my enjoyment in watching Kermit Weeks' "Kermie Cam" as he walks us through a flight in one of his beautiful vintage aircraft? Sortta like Jay Leno, only airplanes.

Speaking of, does anyone know what's happening with the Philippine Mars??? Is Kermit going to get to buy it?

I like watching Jay Leno, especially when he has old vehicles. Not so much on the fancy fast ones. He saves a lot of non-automotive relics too. He has the first hot water tank from the white house, I believe. He has steam engines and literature. He still does stand up in L.A.
It would be interesting to know what his collection is worth.

Some guys keep a lot of old stuff running just for us to see. There is a guy Dave Richards that has the Old Steam Powered Machine shop that I enjoy watching. I'm not even a machinist, but I just love seeing him make parts and maintain his shop. Making these videos takes up extra time, and sure appreciate that people out there do this. This is his 1st video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WXHNBMLZZM&t=143s, and there 49 to date.

There is another car collection in Tacoma, Washington that is amazing, https://www.lemaymarymount.org/ , It's the LeMay Collections at Marymount. Not to be confused with the LeMay's American Car Museum on I-5. In 1997, the LeMay family collection was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Largest Antique & Vintage Vehicle Collection" with more than 1900 vehicles. You can check out the LeMay family's vehicles in this searchable database where you can sort by Year, Make, or Model.
