We've been watching episodes of Jay Leno's Garage for a good long while now, but we can honestly say this is the first clip that's actually riled more than a chuckle. Adam Carolla stopped by with his 1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, and while Leno isn't much of a Ferrari fan, he has an appreciation for older metal of any origin. The show starts off on the right foot as the two curmudgeon comedians lament the lack of auto interest among the younger generation and Leno bemoans how complicated modern Ferrari models are. But the real hilarity kicks in once the two take to the road.

Not long into the drive, the 330 GT 2+2 runs out of gas. We're not sure whether that's more embarrassing for Carolla, who drove the car to the Big Dog Garage, or Leno, who promptly took the keys. Either way, the Ferrari gets back on course with a little help from a five-gallon jug of fuel. Before long, a second issue rears its head: the speedometer begins wailing due to lack of lubrication. That wail eventually vibrates the gauge enough to shake the needle itself free from the face. Hilarity ensues. Check it out for yourself.

      I get the feeling that Adam doesn't typically drive this car. If he did, I think he'd have known about the speedo issue... or at least had it fixed.

        And sadly thats becauze the manufacturers and designers are afraid to take a chance anymore. Remember when Dodge came out with the redesigned am pickup that looked like a big rig? within 5 years all the trucks looked just like it.

        The current trio are doing just fine, albeit a bit dorky. These two would get boring after 1 episode.

      My dad had one of those, in red (of course). It went out of tune so easily the owners manual had a full set of instructions on how to do a tuneup (6 dbl barreled Webers...). It took us a few weeks to figure out that the control for the AC was the middle knob of the center vent.... But the sound - OMG - the sound. We took it out to a private airport and let loose. Gets pretty scary above a 140 or so.... We eventually sold it and the money turned into a pool.

      That's freak'n hilarious...I thank-you Mr. Bowman despite your distain of my RX8. :) Nice to see Adam humbled a little bit. Heck...at least you own a Ferrari Adam! Nice to hear these guys and I are on the same wavelength re driving a stick, and the "mechanicalness" of the driving experience - ultimate performance be damned.

        He's traditionally more a Lamborghini man when it comes to Italian metal. But we all know his first love is classic Datsuns.

      As wealthy man and with such a priceless collection but no Ferrari's. Jay should not deprive himself of the Ferrari icon since he doesn't miss much even down to electric vehicles and steam powered vehicles. He should put his bad experiences in the past with the Ferrari brand aside and start enjoying them. He sure is missing out on the brand. Even rich "moguls" go as far as buying 35 million 50's 250 GTO's so the car should be good enough for him. Cay Dizon

        You don't have to be wealthy to buy a Ferrari but you have to wealthy to own a Ferrari.

      Lino is great! Anyone who loves cars can't be all bad. More power to him. I hope I get to visit his garage some time.

      Btw, Adam talks about this event on his podcast and the differences between himself and Leno on how they treat their collection of cars. It's pretty funny. http://www.adamcarolla.com/morgan-murphy-and-dave-dameshek/

      I hate it when douchebags have nice cars. That's a gorgeous vintage Ferrari.

        I love seeing the term "douchebag" tossed around without any rationalization besides someone being of a higher caliber of success and financial achievement than the person making the comment. Then, combined with going out and buying a Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, or BMW... makes someone worthy of the "douchebag" title. God forbid that person owns a large home in the Hamptons or Monaco, and wears expensive clothing... well, that only puts them over the douchebag top. But really... the douchebag is you, artandcolour2010. Go put your misdirected resentment towards something productive like furthering your own success instead of trying to belittle others who have something to show for their work.
