Jay Leno Gets Emotionally Involved with Nissans

Jay Leno. Comedian, talk show host, car nut, invoker of envy. He recently got the chance to test drive the new Nissan GT-R and in his review he revealed that his first car was in fact a Datsun 1600 Roadster. That’s right, folks, the King of Cars was a Datsun fanatic from the very start! He’s got some kind words for the little Nissan sports car, and although he no longer owns it, Leno’s still got quite the stable in the form of a Mazda Cosmo 110S and a Honda SM600, among others. We have to disagree with him about the GT-R being Japan’s first true supercar – we feel that title can go to either the Toyota 2000GT or the original PGC10 GT-R – but we can’t disagree with his unwavering love for all things automotive. Yes, we are all jealous of you, Mr. Leno.
