We cannot stop looking at this crazy in-depth guide to Jay Leno's car collection
There are car collectors and then there's Jay Leno – a car lover in a league of his own. In case you've been living under a rock, Jay Leno, the former host of the Tonight Show, has one of the most extensive car collections ever assembled. To navigate this 100+ car list a kind Reddit user posted the best guide to Jay's car ever created.
To get a grasp of just how big Jay's collection really is pictures and video simply are not enough. Jay employs an expert staff just to keep all of his cars running, and everything from his steam cars to his McLaren F1 is ready to drive at a moment's notice. Due to the magnitude, only a cold hard spreadsheet will do to keep track of them all.
Redditor u/bondiben explained in their posting on R/Cars that they wanted to practice their Tableau DataBase Skills and decided to create a database containing all of Jay Leno's known cars. This database allows you to filter by year color, body type, and many other great filters.
Every data point on the displayed graph references the source of where the Redditor confirmed Jay Leno owned the vehicle. With a few simple clicks, you can see how many station wagons Jay owns (the answer is only two), or which of Jay's 13 green cars you like best.
As a data nerd myself this chart is perfection. Sure I love videos of cars drifting up mountain passes as much as the next guy, but this chart, this is some good stuff.
