Petrolicious Star Matt Jacobson Makes His VW Debut On Jay Leno’s Garage
You might be familiar with Matt Jacobsen and his eclectic collection of Volkswagens. If you aren’t, it’s broken down pretty much like this: Matt likes things as they were, and to him a ground-up restoration will never be look as good or drive as well as something that’s been preserved. And preserved is a pretty loose term if you’ve seen his 23-window VW Bus. Patina is better than new paint when it comes to this guy.
This is evident in a few of Matt’s cars, including the ’55 oval-window Beetle that wears its past proudly. This car was just featured on Jay Leno’s Garage, and you can watch that episode right here below. This was filmed on the same day as Petrolicious‘ founder and CEO Afshin Behnia‘s 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, so be on the lookout for that video to follow shortly as well.
We’ve also featured Matt’s Squareback, the aforementioned Bus, and his Type 34 “Razor” in previous articles, as well as a film on the Type 34, which you can watch for the first, second, or however many’th time right here:
