Should we start with Paul Newman or Jason Priestley?

Don't forget James Dean, who died in his Porsche.

Lil story behind that, his Lotus was delayed at the factory, and he got the Porsche instead. Who knows what he could've done if he didn't die out there in that car.

I hear Jay Leno is a car guy too. I don't think your LSS is gonna smoke even his vintage Toronado (complete LSx engine swap, twin turbo, RWD conversion)....
