In February 2011 I had the honour to visit US late night talker and comedian Jay Leno in Burbank, California. I had the chance to see and photograph Jay's impressive collection of hundreds of classic cars and motorbikes. Seven Bugatti, seven Duesenberg, a jetbike featuring a helicopter turbine, several steam cars ... that says everything, doesn't it?
The reason for the invitation was a planned video interview in Jay Leno's Book Club. Click on the Video above to see the interview.
