Adam Carolla's 330GT 2+2 on Jay Leno's Garage

Jay owns hundreds of cars, but not a single Ferrari.  Here, Adam Carolla stops by with his gorgeous 330GT 2+2, and unintentional hilarity ensues.

Adam's a legitimate, dyed-in-the-wool gearhead.  His taste in cars, as demonstrated by this lovely old size XL Fiat, is excellent.  His CarCast is almost always a good listen.  He does his own wrenching and races with skill in vintage events up and down the West Coast.

He's just a bit of an asshole. 

It usually comes off as an endearing quirk - a good dude at the core of things who's not afraid to keep it real - but sometimes it's a bit much, and I tune out for a while.  Having watched this, I think I'll end my self imposed CarCast hiatus and load a few new episodes onto my iPod tonight.

  1. I feel the same way about Adam. Maybe I'll bump into him this week. Is he coming up?

    1. Yeah I remember you saying that before. I think a lot of people probably feel the same way.

      I met him once, at the Coronado Speed Fest last year, and he seemed like a nice guy. He had just placed pretty poorly in his 510 and was hanging around the pit area. I didn't want to bother him, so I just shook his hand and told him "good race, I'm a fan." He chuckled, and said "yeaaaaaah haha thanks..." He was obviously pretty bummed.

      I can't imagine he won't be there, that's what he does. I'll know for sure when I listen to a few of the latest podcasts.

      There's no C&C due to Pebble Beach this weekend, thank god, so I get to have more than 4 hours sleep this Saturday!

      Have fun, please take a ton of pics. I wish I could be there.
