Garage Squad returns to Velocity tonight at 10:00 PM Eastern and Pacific Time. The show is about making sure unfinished project cars get completed, and the one-hour premiere focuses on bringing a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 442 back into tip-top shape.
The last time I roped a coworker into an automotive debate, I lost. Resoundingly, I might add. Still, 2,385 voters chose to cast their lots for the Fiat 500 Abarth, as opposed to 5,273 choosing the Ford Fiesta ST, and so I can rest easy in the knowledge that at least 30 percent of you, dear readers, see things my way. I still like to think we have more fun, too.
Jay Leno isn't really known as a punishing driver. If Jay Leno's Garage is any indication, you know that he might get on the throttle a little bit, but he's hardly reckless. However, this week Leno actually does a little damage to the car he's driving while showcasing the 1969 Oldsmobile 442 restomod owned by his buddy, guitarist Paul Jackson Jr., formerly of The Tonight Show Band.
