Jay Leno Rescues Duesenberg from Garage Oblivion


Jay Leno is a good samaritan — at least we know he'd never turn away from an abandoned Duesenberg. Leno once heard of a Duesenberg that had been abandoned in a parking garage in New York City since the 1930s (possibly the city ride of a "curtained" gangster?). After a search, he found the car trapped on the fourth floor — victim of a remodeling job that has shortened the width of the elevator such that the car could no longer be moved. Eventually, he did find one in a barn that he bought and is in the process of restoring. He's a good man, that Jay Leno.
