Almost four years to the day after he signed off from the Tonight Show for the last time, Jay Leno is all about cars.
Which is why it’s only natural for Leno, 67, to be scheduled to be at the 12thAnnual Boca Raton Concours D’Elegance Feb. 23-25 at the chi-chi city’s Boca Raton Resort & Club.
The host of Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC, who owns 286 rare sets-of-wheels and counting, is supposed to judge the weekend’s vehicle beauty contest with Tim Allen, star of now defunct ABC sitcom Last Man Standing.
Clearly, the one celeb the collectors will have to convince isn’t Allen.
Leno knows his stuff. And he admits he’ll have to control his impulses to buy.
“I’m not gonna buy,” he said. “It’s called will power. There are showgirls in Vegas, and if I did anything more than looking, I could get in trouble. Same with cars.”
