Jay Leno Car Up In Smoke: 1907 White Steam Car

By Gary Johnson - Sep 11, 2010

Jay Leno has been having some car trouble recently when his one hundred year old car started smoking in Encino, California.

Lindsay Robertson of Yahoo TV is reporting the star’s 1907 White Steam Car started smoking and had to pull over in the summer heat. Leno stopped in front of a Chili’s restaurant while members of the public ran too get some water and a fire extinguisher.

The breakdown became a very public event with many members of the public and some paparazzi took shots as the event unfolded. The red hot-rod which has 30-horsepower is one of around 150 left in the world, but Leno managed to get it up and running in around thirty minutes.

This not the first time the comedian has had a public breakdown, back in May he was snapped while trying to get his 1963 Porsche back up and running, after breaking down on Mulholland Drive.
