The car was also in the latest issue of Autoweek. Pretty cool car. Must be nice to have GM build you a one off car.

Must be nice to afford GM to build you a one off car.

"Hey Jay, if you have more money than you know what to do with, send some my way, I got a 94 I would like to overhaul!!"

Lotta respect for Lenno. He could be snooty with his money, but he'* realy laid back and cool. I enjoy reading his articles in POPULAR MECHANICS. More rich guys need to be hands on car nuts. (also more lobbyists)

There was a show where Pauly built Jay a custom Chopper. While they were at Jays Car port getting ideas, Jay Mentioned a guy that he hired to keep all of the cars running including his rare steam engine collection. I know Jay gets into his cars, but not that much mechanically, or so I thought.

Still wish I had a third of Jays money so I could have some fun

A guy?? He has a whole garage team! Except for the engine, his team built the 1000hp RWD Toronado.
