There is Corvair content (Jay's Stinger), but since it is so short, I'll post this as OT.

I've touched (and slobbered on) both of Jay's Miuras.

Arch got us in for the tour before he stopped them.

I saw that show too. YEARS ago I was in a Mopar club that had tours at the Leno garage (early 90's). Sadly I never availed myself the opportunity to go.

My mind drifts to practicality. If the goal was to rotate driving each car daily within a year then even at two days a year you still come up 5 days short. I estimate batteries for the cars alone at over $20,000. Assuming an average oil change at $50 the cost approaches $10,000 and if each car only had 2 gallons of gas in them it would approach $2,000. Tire cost likely far exceed $100,000. Insurance!??? Granted that not everything is a yearly reoccurring cost but still a lot of money.

My hope would be that when Jay gets too old to be active, or passes that the garage will become a museum. Oh, and the kid that is the impedance of Leno's forward progress..., - he's mine. eye rolling smiley

Money is not a problem for Jay.

He drives as many as 4 cars a day.

His orange car...owns a yellow too.
