    Default Citroen DS - Jay Leno's Garage

    Wouldnt you think after all those years on TV the man would understand how a mic worked, why he has to yell at the van filming him always amazes me. The mic is on your shirt Jay! Oh well lovely car.

    I thoroughly enjoyed that. Jay knows his cars and gave a very good description of what makes the DS so special.

    Thanks for the re-re-re post.

    I've been waiting for ages for Jay Leno to do a clip on his DS and this is very nicely done. There was a great clip on his SM which has disappeared for now. His sincere but relaxed style does appeal to me and you can tell he loves the car. Sure the haters will point out all his mistakes but few know as much about so many different cars and he actually says CitroŽn properly.

    It's very good I reckon and mostly accurate. He's a great enthusiast after our own hearts. Also good are his ones on his Type 35 Bugatti Replica, his Alfa-Romeo 2300C Replica and his pre-war Vincent HRD Rapide bike (#50 of 68 made!). All are driven on a Los Angeles freeway to make the point. I now have to waste many hours finding more of them and then watching them...

    Adds to the character of the production.

    Fantastic bit of ad libbing. I think Jay Leno could sell ice to the eskimos.

    As I'm an enthusiast who appreciates cars of many makes and geographical origins, Jay Leno is a bit of a hero to me. I'd love to have pockets as deep as his to fund my "habit". His garage is to DIE for. I especially like the way his collection encompasses everything from a Lamborghini Miura to a Fiat Millicento, and everything in between. I've spent many hours watching his episodes of "Jay Leno's Garage" and enjoyed them all.

    Very nice video, SWMBO even watched and commented they are a very good looking car. Why then is it forbidden to give one permanent residence here? She must be smitten with the CX, which is OK by me.

    It'd be nice if he could get some facts correct and acknowledge people. Boulanger and Bertoni to start with.

    The rear indicator location was a resolution to finish the roof line.

    However a nice car and a well put together piece.

    Thanks for link.
    Have to disagree with your criticism. He's trying to create the impression that he's talking to the van ( its called theatrics ) - no problem for me . Lets recognise his love for the DS.
    Love Jay and his enthusiasm for all 'different' cars.

    I will be sure to keep my opinions to myself next time, I'm glad you all enjoyed it though.

    I really enjoyed the "clip"
    Who ever the fellow is I felt he captured the heart of the DS perfectly
