Jay Leno's garage. For many car enthusiasts, it might as well be called Mecca. The long-time Tonight Show host is arguably the biggest gear head on the planet, owning everything from a 1907 White Steam Car to a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Leftlane was lucky enough to sample Jay's collection at the 2009 LA Auto Show, and now the opportunity could be yours.
The 2010 Ault Park Concours d'Elegance has teamed with Jay Leno for a one of a kind raffle, with the winner walking away with a V.I.P. tour of comedian's famous collection. As if a private tour of Leno's Big Dog Garage wasn't enough, the winner will also receive tickets to the Tonight Show, exclusive access to The Nethercutt Museum and Collection, a tour with the director of The Petersen Automotive Museum and access to the NHRA Wally Parks Motorsports Museum.
Tickets are just $100, with all proceeds going towards the Juvenile Arthritis Alliance. Those wanting the opportunity of a lifetime better move fast, though, as just 215 tickets remain. Click here for more information.
