  • Jay Leno ~ Yikes!.....

    If you have not see this on Jay Leno's Garage when it first came out, then here it is. If you did see it, then enjoy it again. They are lucky that they both walked away from this without being hurt. They just showed this again last night on Jay Leno's Garage..


    Jay Leno -- probably had to change his shorts after this.
    Watch to the end. Was NOT supposed to go this way.
    “This has been on my bucket list since I was a kid,” says car enthusiast Jay Leno of driving the Hemi Under Glass, a 2,500-horsepower Plymouth Barracuda first introduced in the 1960s, with its massive engine situated in the rear of the car, surrounded by glass, known for the way its front end rockets skyward when the driver accelerates.
    Jay finally got to cross this particular item off his list, taking a spin in the 'Hemi Under Glass' with its inventor, 80 year old Bob Riggle.

        Many of you know that Jay Leno's Garage is back on the air for 2020. I had just watched a Jay Leno Garage special on the Top 10 Most Beautiful Rides, and #8 was owned by Jessi Combs, The Fastest Woman On 4 Wheels, when she took him for a ride in her own $3 Million Bugatti Chiron... On the actual video from his Garage Show, he revealed at the end that she had died last year breaking the speed record in her Jet Car when it crashed. Not following high speed racing, I was not aware that she had died at 39.

        I tried to copy/paste in the full video from Jay Leno's Garage, "The Top 10 Most Beautiful Rides", into this post, but kept getting errors that the browsers I was using (and I tried several) said that the link was not supported. If you want to view that show, google Jay Leno Garage and then look for "The Top 10 Most Beautiful Rides? and enjoy the video.

        Jessi Combs died Tuesday, August 27, 2019 when her Jet Car crashed while she was breaking the speed record of 512mph. At 550mph, her front wheel collapsed, causing her death and destroying the car.

          After 15 years of rock crawling, I got a little cocky and got bit like that too. Sometimes it just happens.
          (as mentioned make sure you have a really well built cage, my fab/welding skills are OK I guess )

          Did crush down windshield frame a bit, still haven't fixed it as I was considering a body swap
          to a classic bronco, to bring weight down. Rock crawling a 6200 lb Bronco is tough.
