  1. Maybe I missed it on here, but Jay Leno is in a burn unit for facial burns from a car fire at his compound.
    Prayers for a swift recovery.

    Well Jay put the word out about his condition himself so all must not be too horrible.

    Jay did a video some time back promoting a new type of fire extinguisher about the size of a safety flare, small enough that it could be kept in a glove box yet provided extended extinguishing time. Not always a for sure safety net when something flares up in your face.

    Happens to the best of us. B.T.D.T. more than twice. ( yes hospital )

    Used to work with a husky type guy, Who was known to show up hung over.
    His reaction, one day, when a carb belched up a blaze, drove the air cleaner stud clear though his hand. ( drinks are on me )
    Hoping Jay gets the good care he needs:eek:

    Jay is one of us. I always liked his shows on cars. He is really into the steamers. I never knew those cars were so fast..

    He went to the hospital for treatment but it doesn't sound like he's in a burn unit.

    Leno said in a statement: “I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet."

    Before there begins a shit storm, about my post.
    Much respect for the guy that is Jay, He has been a straight up guy all his life.
    Every mistake that many of us make, He has kept it between the lines.
    The pain a burn can be worse than most any other type.
    Plus when we slice an extremity It gets wrapped and held away from attention ( move on )
    Pain on / about the face can not be turned away from, It's right here
    Like I said Hope he gets what he needs

    Here's a video where a reporter stopped George Swift, one of Jay's long time employees, on his way out of the garage. He told the reporter Jay had been working on a steam car, it sprayed gas from the steam car's burner and that caught fire.

    I can say without a doubt we do not fully appreciate Jay Leno. not just the car aspect, but just a great guy in every respect.

    did you guys see his 56 (?) Buick that he used to SLEEP IN while doing stand up before he became rich and famous? one of the few who did not really change when he went "Hollywood". I am pretty sure it has been said that he has never sold a any of his cars.

    I grew up with Johnny Carson and thought no one could replace him but I was wrong.... again, none of these clowns that come on at 11:30 even come close. I'd be happy to see one of them get hit by a truck. no joke.

    When I saw the headline, I immediately thought of one the steamers.
    I remembered this video, where he's having trouble lighting the pilot, then whoosh!
    Thou this was kerosene, not gasoline.

    I saw that one too and that's what I thought of as soon as I heard.

    Glad he'll be ok, same as I would be if any of you guys got injured workin on your rides. I'm not really a star struck kind of guy, but I do dig Jay's car show. Hope he gets well soon.

    Best wishes to Jay, great car guy and good guy all around. Great ambassador for the Car hobby. Soon as I saw the headline I thought of his steam cars, he is an expert on them but you never know when something will go wrong like that.

    Jay and our long gone friend BLUTO were out touring in one of Jay's cars when it caught fire. Jim pulls off his jacket and snuffed out the flames with his coat. Jay offered to replace the jacket. Jim said no.
