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 Alles.

Über as in "über!"
