At least the guy hasn't left us out of the picture in his collection... Sort of.
"I've always been attracted to engineering oddities. You know, things that get the job done in a different way than most. And I'm especially partial to out-of- the-ordinary engines. So it just seems natural that sooner or later I'd own a car with a rotary engine. And I do: a Mazda Cosmo Sport. "A what?" you say."
"Amazingly, the Cosmo weighs only about 2200 pounds. So everything in it is exceptionally easy and light. The engine just keeps on revving. It has this motorboat-like wwwrrrwwwrrr at idle. When you put your foot in it, it makes you smile. It revs to 9500 rpm, easily. And the engine dates from the days when taking your MGB to 5200 rpm would cause rods to start popping through the valve covers."
I love that Jay really UNDERSTANDS and loves all the many cars he has. He's not just an owner/collector. And he drives them all, even the ridiculously expensive ones.
He's just an everyday, REAL car guy who happens to have millions of dollars to spend on it. Awesome...
"We've got enthusiasts here. We've got hobbyists here. We've got engine builders here. We've got poor people. We've got rich people. Most importantly we've got the best resource of rotary people on the planet and there is very little that hasn't been imagined, talked about, discussed, or improved here. Changes have also been made as a result of our discussions. Give us a bit more credit. We aren't the Civic forum." -RotaryGod

Yeah thats the best part about him. Most celebrities who have millions of dollars worth of cars only bought them to show off how much money they have. Jay Leno buys them because he genuinely loves them...
I didn't know how into cars he was until I saw him interviewed on Top Gear. That guy really is obsessed with them.
Jay lenos driving is epic anyways. He got pulled over for doing 100mph in a car that was built in the 1800's on its original engine. Plus they called the fire dept because they thought his steam engine car was on fire lol.
