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.”

Love the car! You're just totally boring in this vid, Jay. You repeat yourself and you're obviously not into it. Just go apologize to another minority group for the jokes you've made over the years and maybe you'll feel better. Sorry you've lost your soul.

Cool to see your road tests. I use to work in Arleta and go to lunch at Hansen Dam, Sunland/Tujunga, some of the same roads you cruise. Seen you drive across San Fernando Rd in blue Bugatti roadster about 25 years ago, wonder exactly which car that was?

Thanks to Jay and the owner of that beautiful Cobra. I have had the honor of owning a Kirkham's continuation Cobra. And it's one of the most terrifying & beautiful machines anyone could own. Yet I still truly appreciate seeing a tour of one of the very rare originals.

My friend had the 427 Cobra camera car used in the filming of LeMans! He restored it to museum/show quality! Ford liked it so much they bought it back from him and gave him a special production Mustang 1 of 50 I believe? It was in the early 80's. Revelle made a model of it too! He regretted selling it years later when the prices went over a million dollars! He restored a couple of 289 Cobra's too!

What a beauty. I worked at a sawmill when I was young and they had a jetboat with a Ford 427 in it and man the sound of that boat was amazing.

This car has been changed a bit over the years . NO fans were installed on FULL Competition Cars . This car has a Wet sump , No Dry sump system . Most Full Comp cars had Diff coolers as well . 42 Gallon fuel tanks and Twin Stewart Warner Electric Fuel pumps .There were only 20 Full Competition 427 Cobras (not 23 ) sorry Jay ... Produced by Shelby American . + ONE 427 Super Coupe Full Comp 427s had All aluminum Cyl Heads and 12:4 to 1 Compression . ( Racing Fuel Only ) 3.77 Rear Axle ratio Glad to Know and Hear THIS car was Saved from Destruction by fire !! I was Lucky Enough to Own One : )) WAY back when ... I paid 7900 $ ( in 1969 ) for Mine : ) WOW who Knew the Value that they are today ... Great Car ... Its a Legend for Sure ! Thanks for Sharing ~

I remember seeing a Cobra when I was a kid in the sixties. No idea what engine was in it. I do remember that both the brake and clutch pedals had the AC logo on them. I really didn't know what I was looking at but it looked pretty cool.

You have a true passion for cars and when you reminisce over the details of an amazing Cobra like that it warms the heart! You truly know its history and intricate details from your vast experience gives great depth to the story as you circle round the special guest. I must say you are blessed with friends like that who trust their precious car with you, knowing that there would be no better place to secure it than your garage! Your humor shines through when you say things like "those fuel pumps are so huge you could hook up a fire hose to them". I too have had the pleasure of riding along as a passenger in a real Shelby Cobra, albeigt a 289 version with a 302 replacement installed, but none the less real. It was a fantasic ride and I remeber it being so low i was able to hit my fist on the asfalt outside the door =) Thank you Jay for this awesome presentation! PS. I think it was Rich Mason of Carson City who owned the 289 at the time.
