• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

Dare I try and upstage the Bilgemaster :-(

But I heard from a very reliable source (H.G.) not mentioning any
names, that Jay leno does not have any German Vehicles as he is of
Jewish desent and refuses to collect them. But I could be wrong

Actually, according to E! Online's http://www.eonline.com/Celebs/Qa/Leno/ ,
Leno is of Italian and Scottish lineage. Here is an excerpt:

"Leno prefers to be viewed not as king of anything but as a regular guy.
Thanks to the reserved qualities of his mother's Scots lineage (as opposed
to the rollicking Italian of his dad, who died in 1994, a year after his
mother), he has what he calls a "New England Calvinist thing" that makes
fancy titles seem distasteful."

That said, I just sent the following to NBC. Will keep you all posted on
any reply. ~Bilgemaster~:

Dear Tonight Show Staff:

I have searched the 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno' site and others for some
listing of Mr. Leno's famous car collection, but without much luck. Can you
direct me to or provide me with such a listing, or barring that, could you
simply tell me whether Mr. Leno owns any Amphicars (the amphibious
"boat-cars" made in the 1960s; see http://www.amphicar.com for more info)?

The topic recently came up with other Amphicar owners, and a definitive
answer would be appreciated.

With Regards,
Bill Connelly ("Bilgemaster")
