Jay Leno to Receive Lee Iacocca Award

Jay Leno to Receive Lee Iacocca Award

To millions of people, Jay Leno is perhaps best known as a comedian and host of NBC’s the Tonight Show, but in automotive circles he’s also recognized as a serious car enthusiast and collector, with a warehouse full of 200 interesting vehicles, including 100 cars that are regularly serviced and driven.

The collection includes a tremendous variety of vehicles, ranging from 1906 and 1922 Stanley Steamers to a custom built 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado, a one of a kind ‘Tank Car’ and the 1955 Buick he’s owned since 1972. Leno is also an avid supporter of the collector car hobby and in recognition of his dedication, will be presented with the Lee Iacocca Award on stage  after his performance at next year’s running of the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance on Feburary 26, 2011. Guests attending the gala will have an opportunity  to meet and have their photo taken with Leno, along with the Legends of Indy Award winners, which will also be a highlight of the event.
