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.”

At 5:21 I believe that clam shell hood that was $24,000 in 1996 ( And stayed the price for a loooooooooong time ) Is now down to $13,000 and some change... $13,000 is still an UnGodly price for a hood but it beats the hell out of $24,000

We plugged in the OBD1 scanner at Autozone to identify a check engine light on my 96 Civic. Guy tells me it's the secondary 02 Sensor. I ask him how much and he says $80 for a Bosch, or $70 for a generic... What, do you think I'm made of money? No thanks. Besides, the check engine light is starting to grow on me. Almost like a calm & subtle ambient light in the background. Anyways, so ya Jay, you and I have had the same OBD experience. It's almost like I lived a day in your shoes.

Back when cars didn't need overly complex and detailed bodies to try looking good without succeeding like modern cars, they just did look good in all their simplicity.

I agree about that first year car being better. But it's probably a normal brain thing. It also applies to everything else, like music or movies or stores.

Viper and civilized don’t belong in the same sentence. 😂 Civilized is boring. This car doesn’t have a computer that stops you from driving the car. Thus, it is not boring.

Still my favourite sports car of all time. Just so raw. Loved the colour scheme with the two stripes on blue. Always loved the curves of the bodywork and the headlights, to me just absolutely looked perfect. The newer models had nothing on that styling imo. The engine and the no fuss nature. Just the right amount of horsepower with a V10. Controllable at a canter but wild when you blipped. Just everything a sports car should be.

I was barely 10yrs old when i first laid eyes on a picture of he 1st Gen Viper! From that very moment it became my Dream Poster Car, there wasn't even any internet access to browse the 1000s of pics..OR watch the likes of YT Reviews/Test Drives LoL! I cant remember how many yrs it was before i even heard the engine sound LoL! One day i found out there was a (UK DODGE DEALERSHIP,) With Both The Red 1st Gen & This Blue GTS! My Brother-In-Law Drove Me All The Way To See Them, Just Around The Corner From (OLD-TRAFFORD-Manchester United Football Stadium!) I Had My Picture Taken Standing By Each One! My Face Was Aching I Smiled So Much That Day LoL 😁 I have a collection of almost every 1/18 DieCast model i could ever find, all kinds of different designs & colour schemes & even a couple of limited edition "AirBrushed" designs.😁 I dont really care for all of its drawbacks OR lack of equippment/features I Still believe it has the (Most Exotic Looks & Best Bodylines) of any sports car to this day!!! And me sticking with that haha!!😁

I saw a first generation viper at a bentley dealership years ago and the panel gap between the metal was insane, made a g wagon look tight!! The viper looked cool though and the second generation with the humpy roof is one of the most iconic designs ever, still looks awesome.

You mention that if any workers from your '96 Viper signed their name under your hood to write it in the comment section. Well I wasn't one of the workers but if I would have been and if my name would have been Rasmuten, I would have written RASMUTEN, under the hood. I figured you would like to know!

My Tesla Model 3 has about the same horse power as this. If you would have told someone 25 years ago that there would be a small electric car that makes as much HP as a Dodge Viper and only costs ~50k, no one would have ever believed you it would be possible.
