Had both Derby and Tesoro trailered out to Burbank for a shooting on a youtube episode for Jay Leno's Garage.
What an amazing experience to be in a presence of a very well known car enthusiast with a super large collection of rare cars!
Both cars were trailed down with the help of Performance Technic and my local mechanic Bill Arnold.
Jay LOVED Derby... he glanced over at Tesoro and admired the recent build, but Jay absolutely fell In love with an 'unmodified, mostly original car' within Derby.
Filming was nerve wracking and I felt very rushed as I didn't get to say what I wanted to about Derby so much... it just went very rapidly and lights and cameras were recording at different directions which were not easy to follow from someone who has no TV experience...
Jay and I then went on a drive and that's when it was much more relaxed and answering questions was much more easier than being put on the spot.
Jay had a catered lunch and we got to tour his HUGE collection of cars.
Regardless if someone's garage is bigger or better than the other person's ... Jay was a total down to earth person who has the same "car enthusiast bug sensation" that we all share.
Can't believe what a dream come true this is... I hope to have represented the 02 community with much pride and respect and as soon as the show is posted, I will share the link on my blog.
It's owning both these pieces of art and meeting car enthusiasts of all different levels of love for these boxy little german cars that makes this car passion so incredibly amazing ...
Cheers! (With my gin and tonic in the garage detailing Derby before taking off to Burbank)
