1. 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")

    the collection

    Leno at his shop /garage in california and never saw an Amphicar or any
    German car for that matter. Robert Wright red 67
