We're a big fan of Jay Leno's Garage (the column). Mr. Tonight Show's writing for Popular Mechanics is entertaining, pasionate and informed. But we were more than a little surprised to read his recent take on street racing. Jay warns us not to take on a "hopped up Camaro" in our Lamborghini Countach (whose Lamborghini Countach?) lest we fry the clutch, and advises us to drive our supercar (whose supercar?) as conservatively as a minivan. Even stranger, he praises the Porsche Carrera GT's ceramic clutch, easily the world's most stall-o-riffic unit. Still, it's good to see the former Porsche-basher join the fold.
