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.”

Jay is covered in fine dirt at the end from following the camera vehicle with his windshield open. in viet nam all we had were 3/4 ton pickups in my unit(MACV). One of these would definitly solved a few problems(i.e.-small arms, ChiCom.,m79's etc.).Overandout.

He is right about the speed as well, many people will tell you that they did 45mph, they did way more than that given a good runup and 60mph was not unusual.

Used to have to "pedal them up" by pumping the gear change pedal (GCP) several times to ensure the adjustment in the preselector was working, otherwise you could get a nasty kickback which drove your knee into either the steering wheel or your teeth. Needed lots and lots of grease for the propshafts and universal joints to a bevel box behind each compound epicyclic reduction hub. I love these old beasts, I was REME back in the day and did Stalwarts, Saracens, Chieftain, 430's, pretty much all the stuff still in service in the 70's and 80's.

I used to drive one in Germany in the 60’s don’t forget to pump up the bands in each gear the start of every day it’s something like 12. Good for the left leg. If you want something with a bigger armament look at the Saladin it’s a six-wheeled armoured car. Cheers

I drove Ferrets between 1978-81. The ferret was produced between 1952 - 71. In service between 1952 - 91 (UK) Very stressful to drive, Right, no, Left, Right, NO! LEFT. You have to drive one with the shields down and being directed by the commander to understand the left right comment. LOL

If memory serves, the tyres aren't actually bullet-proof; they're foam-filled. So a bullet can go straight through and not flatten the tyre. I remember hearing this many years ago now when you needed stuff like that in Northern Ireland.

The word he was looking for at the beginning, "H drive", does he mean hydrostatic? He said fluid couplers which makes me think it's hydrostatic. Especially if it is also able to move the same speed in both forward and reverse "gears"

For the record, this was still being used in the 1980's, we had them as troopy's vehicle in my squadron in 1987, through until about 1989 and I know some went to the Gulf during the first lot of shenanigans out there.

Price has gone up in the last couple years. It wasn't that long ago you could get a running Ferret for $10,000. The one he's driving looks like it's near mint.

Nice vid. Having spent ten plus years in tanks, that is not a tank. A tank has firepower, mobility and protection. Armored cars have plenty of mobility, not much protection and no gun.

Hey Jay, study some history about the use of these in northern Ireland. Then see if you still want to pay your respects. Americans back then didn't agree with how we were treated by the Brits and neither should you.
