Jay Leno shares stories with Lee Iacocca and the Iacocca 45th Anniversary Mustang
Even a guy as steeped in auto history as Jay Leno is still subject to being in awe of certain people. After all, when the comedian was still a young pup, he had already developed a passion for high-performance vehicles with one of which being the Ford Mustang.
Now a full-fledged millionaire and the owner of one of the most awesome car collections you’ll ever find, Leno had no other than the father of the Mustang, Lee Iacocca, drop by and pay him a visit.
Together with his own ’No. 01’ 45th Anniversary Mustang Iacocca Edition, the iconic and legendary businessman credited for the first-ever Mustang talked shop with the comedian, discussing a number of items, including his relationship with Carroll Shelby - another American automotive pioneer - and the roots behind the development of the car that would later became an American icon itself: the Mustang.
After their brief but highly informative chat, Leno was given permission by Iacocca to take his own car out for a spin where true to his mischievous side, Leno decided to shake the 45th Anniversary Mustang Iacocca Edition down and even give it a nice, little burnout.
