Tim Allen Shares A Ride In His 1968 COPO Camaro with Jay Leno

by Andrea L. Algar

Any serious motorheads knows that both Jay Leno and comedian Tim Allen are both classic car enthusiasts. Did I really say "enthusiasts"? Many might call them "classic car nuts", but they certainly qualify for the "real car guys" category.

Just have to share a video that just appeared on YouTube that shows the two taking a cruise in Allen's 1968 Camaro - a 427 COPO Camaro to be exact! What a nice ride. One of my favorites.

It's always nice to appreciate a classic car that is enjoyed being driven. Too many just don't take the time to get out on the road to truly enjoy their classic car or muscle car for what it was made for...being on the road. Nothing wrong with an occasional trailer ride to a show, but even a show car deserves to get on the road to breathe a little!

Hope you enjoy the video.  More than one person has commented on Allen's expression when doing the burnout....what do you think?  Scared or just hamming it up?
