CAL Doubles as ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ During Pre-Show Tour

Jay Leno, whose flair for comedy is matched by a passion for collectible automobiles, visited Penn College on Sunday prior to his evening performance at the Community Arts Center. Meeting with students, faculty and administrators in College Avenue Labs, Leno toured the automotive restoration and collision repair facilities, and took a quartet of vintage vehicles for a road test: a 1916 Scripps-Booth Model D, a 1953 Verrill Wolf Wagon, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport and a 1965 Ford Mustang.
