In recent years, Jay Leno has fulfilled the dream of many car enthusiasts.

After years of hosting one of the most popular programs on American television, The Tonight Show, he moved on to do what he really loves: classic cars.

Leno (72), who earned about $450 million during his career as a host and comedian, cultivated his collection of cars and motorcycles, which is estimated to include about 180 cars and about 160 motorcycles, and began presenting a car show on the NBC network: "Jay's Garage Leno", where he drives rare cars, hosts celebs behind the wheel, and Mao enjoys the work.

One of his most notable interviewees was US President Joe Biden, who drove with him in his private Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and an electrified Ford F100.

But the last month we would like to forget. Two weeks ago he had a motorcycle accident that left him with fractures, a few months after he was burned in the face while who took care of one of his cars. and if that's not enough,

In an accident two weeks ago, he was riding his motorcycle in the Burbank area of ​​California where the collection is stored, when he made a turn through a parking lot and fell after hitting an unmarked wire stretched across it.

"I broke a collarbone, several broken ribs and two cracked kneecaps," he told us in an interview.

"But other than that, I'm fine."

In November, he was working on a 1907 steam-powered car from his collection when he spotted a cracked fuel tube.

"I blew into it and then suddenly my whole face was filled with fuel, there was a spark and my face started to catch fire," he said.

Leno was hospitalized in the burn treatment center, and after a few weeks he returned to his stand-up performances, and to the filming of the show.

NBC justified the cancellation of the program by increasing the emphasis on economic news.

"When they took us on, it was a little unusual to air this car show in the middle of the financial news," he told us.

"It was very successful. But now they've decided to go with financial news across the entire schedule, so we'll go somewhere else. No hard feelings or anything," he said in a conversation with the Las Vegas Review.
