    "2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: Here's all we've got to say about it: 707 hp... and you will not BELIEVE the burnout!"

    I enjoy watching his automotive videos over his late night talk show!

    His collection is amazing. Seems to be a stand up guy as well.

    I watched every video I could find on the Hellcat and Jay's was my favorite. He asked great questions and I got lots of good info from it. I can't wait to drive mine when it gets here, his experience was too cool. He truly has an amazing collection and I have no doubt I would have a collection like that if I could afford it.

    I agree. That was classic! Time trials and awesome tools and he wants to see tire pressure. I am not sure I will be able to decide where to stay on the center screen, the Hellcat logo rocks too. I can certainly say tire pressure will not be first choice... Just got my VIN today. Counting the days for delivery.

    for me driving local i might go with the digital speedo as it looks like the 20,40,60 are all in the space of an inch and the speeds change quickly and often around here :)

    I have to agree with you on the speedo. I have a 12 Dodge Charger now and I keep it on digital speed display. It is easy to speed when the number is not right in front of me. Awwwww, who am I kidding...I speed no matter what. It just helps me to be more aware of my overage!

    Paul with Jay Leno.jpg As we approach the end of the year, it is often a time of reflection on the past year. I was very grateful I had the opportunity to actually meet Jay Leno this year! I saw him getting food in a buffet line in NJ, and no one seemed to recognized him. He sat down by himself and was eating, so I asked if I could join him and he said absolutely. Naturally we talked cars the whole time, exclusively Mopar! One of his first questions was "Have you driven the Hellcat??? You gotta drive the Hellcat!!!" At that point in the year, I was only thinking about buying one, but I was pretty sure I would eventually :)

    Eventually more people recognized him and a line began to form of folks asking to take pictures with him, but I was able to get one with him first. He's a great guy, very personable and down to earth and as we all know, definitely very knowledgeable and passionate about Mopars too! I really appreciated his time and conversation. Hope someday I can get this photo signed and hung on my shop wall. Just thought I'd share one of the highlights of the year!

    Poor jay probably can't even go into a bathroom to take a dump without someone popping there head under the stall asking for a picture or a autograph. Still I think hundreds of millions and hundreds of amazing cars make it easier to deal with.:D

    Great story. That is the video that actually made me buy my Hellcat. Had to be TorRed like his as well. So glad they went with the new Hellcat emblem on the fender.
