    Jay Leno is the ultimate car guy. He has a museum filled with 357 classic vehicles (189 cars and 168 motorcycles)- some worth millions of dollars. As an example, he has a 1994 McLaren F1 worth $12 million. I guess that he can afford this collection. His net worth is $450 million and his annual income is $15 million. Must be nice.

    Here is a list of his Mopars:

    1932 Plymouth Convertible
    1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Business Coupe
    1958 Chrysler Imperial Convertible
    1961 Chrysler 300G
    1963 Chrysler Turbine
    1966 Coronet 500 Hemi
    1968 Charger RT/R
    1970 Plymouth Super Bird
    1970 Challenger R/T Hemi
    1971 Plymouth GTX
    1975 Plymouth Duster Hemi
    1992 Dodge Viper
    1993 Dodge Viper R/T 10
    1996 Dodge Viper GTS
    2015 Dodge Hellcat

    He also employs people to work on them.

    That's because he drives many of them.

    On his own show he admitted that many of his cars aren't drivable and considering how many he has, he certainly can't be driving the "drivable" ones very often. He employs several people to maintain and modify his collection again due to it's sheer size and his limited knowledge and ability.
    Years ago, it was quite apparent that he was far from an automotive "expert" but in recent years I'll admit he "seems" to be quite knowledgeable. Whether he truly knows as much about cars in general as it appears is tough to determine since everything you see with him online and on TV is scripted. As far as I'm concerned, I gave up being skeptical of the guy and choose to simply enjoy his exploits and continue to be jealous of his collection and access to the inner workings of the automotive world.
