Jay Leno's days might be numbered as host of The Tonight Show, but he will always have a spot in auto enthusiasts' hearts as long as he keeps releasing great videos showing off his and his friends' cars. The latest video from Leno's garage might be the weirdest yet and highlights the three-wheeled Decopod by automotive artist Randy Grubb, who also built Leno's Tank Car.

The Flash Gordon-inspired Decopods are based on Piaggio MP3 three-wheeled motor scooters and are covered in overlapping, riveted aluminum panels. As with all of Grubb's projects, the work is entirely done by hand, and the metal pieces only add about 30 pounds to the scooter after its original, plastic body is removed. Grubb is building only six Decopods for about $25,000 each, and four of them are already sold, so there is still a chance to own one.

The Decopods look like a ton of fun, and their Art Deco aesthetic gets the thumbs up from Leno. Scroll down to check out these seriously quirky, little trikes.

      Really cool idea, but he should have chromed or nickel plated the wheels.

      Hope NBC doesn't pull the plug on Jay Leno's Garage website.

      Recessed headlights look best...with the copper lighting bolt. On the other one with the wrap around bumper is cool.

      1. Where do you put the license plate? 2. Helmets work best when the straps are fastened. 3. I know you live in the land of freeways, but I wish you would go on some curvy roads when you take your vehicles out.

      $25k sounds like a pretty good deal for something as cool as these. Just wish the wheels were changed out too, or at least painted black to help hide them.
