Lots of people wanted to see pictures from our adventure filming with Jay Leno. he picked our cars as the best he had seen. He owns 2 Fiats and so he totally appreciates ROAD RACE's approach to SHow to Track inspired Street cars. His place is amazing. I do not have enough time to explain. So cool. Here are some pictures to start of our adventure.

Wow..that SEMA car is looking mean! Love that widened stance w/ flares. It gives the car a whole different look. Handling wise, I bet it significantly reduces any rollover tendencies during high speed turning. Great job R/R!!

He is onboard. He does not feature junk. The other car getting filmed that day was a 2 engine MINI, engine in the front, one in the rear. Only serious cars make it into the show.

What did he have done to his Abarth?. I know when the 500L came to his place last year they were adding some blacked out lights and some carbon fiber goodies to it. Guess we will find out in the episode.

So did he drive one of them? This will be quite interesting... (And I mean that in a positive way). That's a huge accomplishment to get on with Jay Leno. Congrats

See if you can get him to do some "Jay" turns like he did in the mini for the Today Show when The Italian Job was released.

HE did some JAY turns when he drove our red 500S. This is while ago but he as driven our other FIAT. Look for that show. It is about 2 years old now. He has driven both cars. I just hope they do not cut out too much material (footage). He is not the greatest driver, I wanted to drive for him. Then we would have had some real footage. Oh well, We are honored to have done it and I am 100% sure this is not the end of it. He wants to keep in touch.

THIS DID NOT MAKE IN ON TO THE SHOW. We missed it by a a day. When Jay moved up our filming date, we just could not get it done in time.Here is a final pictures with the new front end, grill and lights.
