Jay Leno has a bit more going for him than just his late night comedy act; he has a passion for cars and motorcycles and his show Jay Leno’s Garage.

Each episode starts with a brief yet detailed bio of the featured automobile, mostly antiques and remodels; then they’re taken out on the open road for a quick spin by Leno himself.

Jay Leno’s Garage isn’t your ordinary car show either. It’s full of wild and unexpected twists and turns as you’ll see in some of the episodes we’ve highlighted below!

1957 Porsche Speedster 356

This episode of Jay Leno’s Garage is one of our favorites at GGBAILEY because Bob Bailey, founder of RACEMARK International (our parent company), organized a special group with the Saratoga Auto Museum to go to Jay Leno's garage for a private tour for the museum group. One of the museum's guests, Tom Murtaugh arrived in his 1957 Porched Speedster 356 and before he knew it he was being filmed for Jay's next episode. 

Tom is the owner of the 1957 Porsche Speedster 356 which is the star of the following clip. When you watch this episode, you’ll learn what makes this vehicle truly one-of-a-kind!

Batman’s Tumbler

This episode of Jay Leno’s Garage features the actual Batman car from The Dark Knight and Dave Ragan, Transportation Studio Driver for Warner Bros.

Jay Leno Goes 2,500 HP on 2 Wheels

Bob Riggle has been one of Jay Leno’s hero’s since he was a child because Bob Riggle was able to stand the Hurst EMI Under Glass up on two wheels!

This car was originally designed as a race car and drawn on a napkin by Ray Brock, publisher of Hot Rod Magazine, and George Hurst, owner of Hurst Performance, Inc. at a restaurant one day.
