Peeking Into The Labyrinthian Halls Of Jay Leno’s Garage

Petrolicious founder and CEO, Afshin Behnia, will soon appear alongside his 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale on Jay Leno’s Garage, and we had a chance to look around the expansive assembly of cars, bikes, and everything else.
It does feel a little silly and incorrect to call Jay Leno’s garage, a garage- it’s sort of like calling an aircraft carrier a boat. This is a collection that gives even the most jaded individual an acute case of automotive ADD. To think of this place as just (just?) an expanse of unique cars spanning numerous countries and decades is to be narrow-minded in the extreme. One could write doctoral theses on a single wall of automobilia alone. There’s just so much of everything to take in that it all kind of congeals your brain into a gut reaction of simply, “wow.” Using more words somehow doesn’t seem appropriate for a place that includes a Mercedes 600, a Ford Shogun, and a twin-turbo tank-powered ‘car’ under the same roof. It turns into babble very quickly. So we’ll let the photos put it into the thousands of words that I can’t.
