If there is one thing that the popular host from the talk show “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” is serious about, it is his fleet of exclusive and limited edition cars that are over a 100 now (the numbers keep racing towards infinity) and not to forget his collection of motorbikes that count over 90. The car enthusiast, who rose to fame in 1992 after he was replaced for Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show, has been on a roll ever since, never looking back. His affinity for cars began when he worked with Ford Dealership in 1967 (his first job). The comedian who works very hard on his bunch of fresh jokes and has an average of 4-5 hours of sleep everyday, kills his fatigue with his ‘fleet’ of babies that have 4 nannies to take care of them, hosted in three football-field size warehouses.
Here’s a brief account of his wheelies and junk that are envied by one and all.
Jay’s first car when he got to California was the classic 1955 Buick Roadmaster.
Talking of Classics, he owns about 29 of them including the 1959 Fiat Millecento,1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Business Coupe, 1966 Ford Galaxie, 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa, 1966 NSU Spider, 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe.
He was also recently spotted driving his 1929 Bentley Six speed.

He has about 15 in Antiques. The collection hosts the 1929 DuPont Le Mans Speedster, the 1937 Cord 812 Westchester and three vintage Mercedes produced in 1930’s which were never seen before.
He’s also one of the 10 owners of the exclusive Bertone Mantide.
Giving a personalised tour to his ‘car estate’ is absolutely justifiable with the beauties stacked up in line.
He also owns the MTT Turbine Superbike which is the Guinness World Record Holder for “the most powerful bike to enter series Production” and it is also one of the most expensive bikes in the world reigning in at $150,000.
Here’s a P-51 Mustang Fighter Plane owned by Jay. He has 4 others in his kitty, including the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-25 Mitchell Bomber, B-24 Liberator Witchcraft and the iconic WWII-era aircraft engine that is being restored by the engine fanatic.
Amongst his crazy fleet of cars, we can only call his two sizeable estates in Tony bel Air humble. Purchased in 1987, the uphill 3,400 square-foot house and the guy went on to purchase a down hill property after 10 years.
