Featuring everything from classics to supercars, and restoration projects to road tests, host Jay Leno covers the car collector's market, including the best investments and valuations in the space. Based on his web series of the same name, JAY LENO'S GARAGE will "highlight the passion and the stories behind the men and women who made the automobile the greatest invention of the 20th century," according to Leno, who is an executive producer for this series in addition to being its host.
