Jay Leno's Owen Magnetic hybrid – Click above to watch video after the jump

Okay, so maybe you despise the Tonight Show. Perhaps you love it. No matter which side of the fence you stand on, it's hard not to fall in love with Jay Leno's collection of automobiles. His hundreds of exotic cars, motorcycles and other rare oddities are more than enough to make any car aficionado drool and his 17,000-square foot garage in Southern California, is likely the envy of every gearhead across the nation.

It's also no secret that Leno is committed to going green. Just take a look at that massive solar array perched atop the roof of his Big Dog Garage. But did you know that Leno's green car collection dates back over a hundred years? We didn't. Among the exotic supercars and other modern day automotive marvels housed, you'll also find a 1906 Baker electric car, a 1916 Owen Magnetic and a 1925 steam-powered Doble. Leno has established a taste for historic vehicles with green cred, which you can see in Giga OM TV's Green Overdrive video that's pasted after the jump. We think you'll be impressed with the technology that was crafted more than one hundred years ago.
