I'm working on rocker arms for some ancient Leno luxobarge. I wonder if I will talk to him directly, probably not.

It's true, this is one of the only forums I can think of that wouldn't swoon over him and try to massage his ego. He would get the same noob treatment as everyone else.

It was his late brother's miata--jay had nothing to do with it other than acquiring it and driving it after his death.
