Jay Leno on how as a teen he was allowed to choose the engine for the family’s new Ford Galaxy, quite funny (starting at about 2:00):

No hubcaps, racing wheels, muffler delete option :D :D
Hope he‘ll do a show on the C-V8 sometime soon. Wonder if he‘ll join the club...

I suspect that the C-V8 will be just the first of his Jensens... good car to start with though :D

Went and visited the car and Jay last weekend and delivered some of the CV8s old leftover parts. I’m curious what parts he ordered. Haha just by coincidence I found this topic, I came back looking for valve stem solutions for my Interceptor and saw the posting. Was honored that Jay chose to mention me in that video blog. Very cool that he owns a car I restored and that he owns a Jensen.
