Yesterday, Cindy and I attended the Greystone Mansion Concours d'Elegance with our 1915 Touring Car. It is getting harder for theses high profile events to attract the brass era vehicles. We were honored to be invited. As the event took place in Beverly Hills, we were also surrounded by celebrities and television cameras. I was interviewed by three different programs during the event. 12

We had the opportunity to Meet noted automotive appraiser & historian Donald Osborne as well as Model T owner and enthusiast Jay Leno.

It was a fun day:-)

Nice. I see Jay dressed for the occasion :-)

Jay usually wears the same outfit :-)
We actually got to talk for quite a while about the Model T. He has recently acquired a 1915 T and has it running.

From pics I've seen, that's Jay's usual outfit at car gatherings.

Looks like you had a really fun day. Did you get rained on? You both need to practice that smile more when in front of the cameras.

Keep us posted if anything is published. Donald's pants are the Coolest!

The blue 1911 Benz next to us belongs to our friend & neighbor Gerhard Schnuerer. He has an amazing collection which we toured a few years ago.

That is pretty neat. Jay is a great car guy like most but he is famous too.

Jay's my kind of guy! Denim, denim, and more denim. I even wear it to church! This is pretty much how he looks in his part on "Last Man Standing"...love that show. Bill, your '15 looks great. Kinda makes me wish I had my '15 still, it was one sharp car 'cept it had black tires. Nice to see yours so nice and white!

Jay probably wants to know what kind of oil you are using and why .
:P

I like the explaining free starts?? With hands held out saying Lizzie come forth or Moses parting the red sea? Bud.

It would be interesting to find out if the 1915 Jay purchased is a real one. Most of them that I have seen have been converted. Too bad.

Sounds like you had a great time. _Must have been fun schmoozing with celebrities. _Yeah, Jay Leno is a frequent recipient of the unofficial "regular-guy" award._

So very cool....thanks for posting.

I have a lot of respect for Jay Leno because of his genuine love for the old iron and his humility and great demeanor.

One of my sort of "pie-in-the-sky probably-won't-happen but-I-can-always-dream" items is to drive my 54 Ford from Texas to his shop and have him do a segment on it for his YouTube channel while I promote the 54 Ford Club of America.

Jay also has a 25 Model T.

For a while there was a youtube video about it on his YouTube channel, then they pulled it down for some reason.

I've posted in the comments on a couple of his other videos asking if they could repost it, but so far they haven't.

Jay & I talked about his '25 Runabout and then he mentioned that he had just gotten a 1915. With just a little work they got it running. It sounded like someone gave him the car. I did also talk at length with Donald Osborne about the current Model T market & values. We exchanged contact information and I may have some dealings with him in the future. My goal is to publicize the Model T & these guys are just the right ones to help :-)

Jay's website really helped me get into classic cars. I love watching the "My Classic Car" segments on Youtube with Jay in them. He throws in a lot of quick one liners to the eccentric Dennis Gage. I get much more laughs out of those than his main channel.

Bill, what a beautiful Model T you have. It certainly attracts the eye much more than the car beside it, in my opinion!
