1Jay Leno goes hot rodding in a 1952 MG TD

The latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage is all about hot rods, but this isn't the usual '57 Chevrolet or '32 Ford. Instead, Jay has a pan-Atlantic speedster with a 1952 MG TD body mated with a stroked, fuel-injected V8. As he describes it, this droptop makes in the neighborhood of 48 horsepower when stock, but the new mill takes that to around 340 horsepower at the rear wheels, according to the dyno sheets – that's a healthy upgrade by any measure. Also, the looks could almost pass for sto

11Leno drives Volvo P1800 from Roger Moore's The Saint

Outside of a few notable exceptions, Volvo usually isn't associated with making beautifully curvaceous vehicles. But in the 1960s and early '70s the company proved with the P1800 that its cars didn't only have to be safe but staid family transportation. Underneath that shapely styling were a lot of components from the brand's parts bin, but that didn't bother Roger Moore when he drove one of these in the TV series The Saint. Actually, the future James Bond actor didn't just get behind of one of

7Leno stretches Lamborghini Diablo's legs for latest Garage installment
