Though I still won't forgive for his ruthlessness and his lack of couth for the way he handled that whole Late Show debacle, I have to say that he still -- and always will be -- a gearhead's idol to some respect.
This isn't a guy that just snaps up cars left and right to run around town, Leno actually gets his hands dirty, is at the local meet-ups and is more than happy to talk shop with ANYONE. You have to respect that.
And the guy loves anything with four wheels. From firetrucks to Bentley Blowers, Leno's collection is downright ridiculously awesome.
A couple of his prized autos are the pair of Dodge Vipers in his vast collection. The first is one of the original, raw and uncensored Vipers -- in fact, his was the very first black one. The latter is the iconic blue with white striped Viper GTS.
So when he starts taking a look and peeling back the skin of the all-new, 2013 Viper, you know he knows what to expect and he has some validity in his words.
