Hangin' Out with Jay
You never know when lightning is going to strike. And so it was with WMR
members Chuck and Lynne Olenyk. They decided to sell their gorgeous 356
outlaw, personally built by Chuck. Through a series of events too long to
detail here, the car ended up on an episode of Jay Leno's garage, and the
Olenyks (and their son, Zack) ended up spending time with one of America's
great comedians and car buffs. See the episode
here. Read the full
story in Über
as in "über!"
