We haven't always been fans of Jay Leno. On The Tonight Show, he seemed like a nice enough guy, but not a real standout. In fact, he struck many of us as run-of-the-mill and ordinary.
Then came Jay Leno's Garage, and we learned that in fact, Jay's "ordinary" vibe is EXACTLY what we like about him. Sure, he's got a huge collection of cars and the dough to grab dozens more, but somehow he avoids the douchiness to which most guys in that position would succumb. In fact, Jay seems completely down-to-earth. He's inquisitive and smart, and despite his love of a good V8, he's also very eco-conscious. Does it sound like we have a little man-crush going on?
Anyway, a few months ago, Jay sat down with folks at GM and discussed some ways to make the beloved (and best-selling) Camaro even better. He was presented with the results at this week's SEMA show in Las Vegas. Check the clip below as he talks about the custom car's supercharged V6, and hear his thoughts about the history and future of Detroit:
