From Leno’s first column for Autoweek, a sister publication of Automotive News.
You wouldn’t believe how many people I meet in Hollywood who haven’t a clue about their cars and go through new Lambos and Porsches on a regular basis.
I ask, “Is it a turbo?”
“Oh, I don’t know.”
“Why do you have this thing?”
A friend who I didn’t think was a car guy said, “Hey, what do you think of the Corvette? Should I get a Corvette?”
I said, “Yeah, the new Corvette is a great car.”
He said, “How is it with girls? Do Corvette guys get girls? Is it better than a Porsche?”
I said, “I don’t know.”
He said, “If you were single, which one would you get?”
I said, “I would get the one I like.”
I don’t know if any girl would care whether it’s a Porsche or not. Ridiculous.
