Jay's Stanley Steamer

I have enjoyed Jay Leno’s humor for years – he has a way of making you laugh without being offensive. The other side of Leno is where I’ve been particularly interested and that’s his hobby of collectiing antique and interesting motorcycles and cars. While there are numerous Hollywood and sports stars that collect cars and motorcycles, Leno distinguishes himself in actually getting down and dirty and working on them. He has a staff of mechanics to maintain his collection so he could just sit back and look at the collection but he seems to prefer to get involved with rebuilding and test driving the cars and motorcycles.

It used to be that we only had a rare glimpse of his hobby on TV as an article on another show – But now there is a web page with all the episodes of “Jay Leno’s Garage”. I could “waste” hours watching and admiring his collection.

Here is a link to the last episode that I watched about a “George Jetson” device that is a 3D scanner that can be used to prototype parts – check out the plastic 3D printer. Wow!
NextEngine’s 3D Scanner

Here is the link to the page listing all the other videos – Jay Leno’s Garage

I haven’t seen any of the episodes on TV and couldn’t find it in the listings so maybe the show’s run is over?
