Although normally we wouldn't care about navel-gazing media gossip, the late-night war between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien brings up an important question on your automotive collecting philosophy: Leno's garage or Conan's SHO?

Having recently visited Jay Leno's garage we can attest to it being about the best collection of cars money can buy. A fully operational Tatra T87, a RWD Toronado and a McLaren F1 are just a few of the treats you'll find inside. It's a place dedicated to the idea: you've earned it, you should buy it, cost is no option and make everything perfect. Leno is the consummate monied car man.


Conan O'Brien, on the other hand, has a car worth less than most of the tools in Leno's garage. It's a Taurus SHO — the 1992 model. Conan's making more money and having more success than when he started with the power-bull, but he's kept his SHO and kept it running. Nothing's restored to its original state. His automotive collecting motto seems to be: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. He's sort of the working man's car man.


Tell us, what are you: Team Leno or Team Conan?
