Jay Leno’s garage isn’t a museum, even though the sheer number of cars inside of it rivals top auto museums in many corners of the world. The cars themselves run the gamut from the historic to the brand spanking new. If you want to check out some of the more historic cars in Jay Leno’s garage, some of the cars of note include a Stanley Steemer (a 19th century car that runs on STEAM, not gas), and a 1906 Baker electric car. As far as personal history goes, the 1955 Buick that resides in his garage might just be the most important car in the lot. Why? It was Jay’s first car.
Modern additions to his garage would make any automobile enthusiast drool, then turn green with envy. One of the most remarkable cars is his new 2011 Bugatti L’Or Blanc, which has sleek, one of a kind lines that make it one of the most easily distinguishable luxury cars on the market. Jay Leno’s garage is also home to a couple of high end motorcycles as well. One of his favorites is his Ducati 900 Super Sport TT.
