There was a lot of interest when I last posted a link to this Bugatti simply driving the back roads of Northern Arizona. This time Jay drives and talks with owner Alan Travis for a full feature, 30+ minute video about this exciting car. Go HERE and click on "VIDEO" at the top of the page. I hope you'll enjoy this expanded look at this exciting car.

I think we need a race between the Bugatti and Rob's K!

I was just "talking" to Alan and there's been nearly 145,000 views in 5 days. It has been the highest rated response to Jays Garage ever. That's pretty exciting in our small corner of the internet.

Thanks for posting Steve. Great video.

Gil, we wouldn't want a big Ford six to embarrass a little foreign import......

It was a good video, and Alan does a great job demonstrating the Bugatti. And Jay Leno appears to know a thing or two about interviewing a "guest."

If the race were on a hilly, winding road, the outcome might not be quite so preordained.

It would be great if Rob and his model k would be featured on Leno’s videos. He could do well to educate people on the early years of Ford and dispel many inaccuracies about the model k. It would also be nice to see a great early American car featured in high quality video and sound. Perhaps the people here can write to Leno in consideration of Rob and his model k. Almost the least one could do for all the good he has done for the history and time he has spent on this hobby.

David
I had my "15 minutes of fame" with Jay about 6 years ago (it was really around 7 minutes of edited video) and when asked, I always tell my questioner that Jay is just like you see in the videos as he is in person. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a good interviewer. That said, and knowing Alan for quite a few years, I'm pleased to see how well they play off each other in the video. I personally wouldn't be surprised to see Alan doing a repeat number at Jay's Garage. Alan certainly has enough cars to start appearing occasionally in his videos and possibly elsewhere within the Leno franchise.
That being said, it would be great if the Ford Model K could be demonstrated on the show.
What really made this video special, in my opinion, wasn't the Bugatti, it was the "magic connection" that these two enthusiasts have and subsequently allowed us all to participate in a voyeur mode.
Jay with Alan and the Type 22
