Season 3 of Jay Leno’s Garage kicks off tonight with a two-hour show, featuring a whole host of celebrities, modded and mad cars plus a big dose of hijinks.

In the premiere episode, Made in America, former president George W. Bush takes Jay for a ride in his Ford F-150 pickup and explains why not being allowed to drive on public roads is one of the worst things about being POTUS.

We also hear about Bush’s work with veterans and his hands-on approach to working on his ranch.

The episode also sees Jay hang with comedian Billy Gardell, and comic Gabriel Iglesias takes him for a spin in a 2017 Trans Am SE Bandit, one of 77 cars built by Trans Am Depot as a tribute to the original car made famous by Burt Reynolds.

Check out the beautiful 6.2-liter hemi, which produces a monstrous 700hp, in the clip below.

He also races actress Wanda Sykes in a minivan…

In the second episode, Larger Than Life, actor J. B. Smoove also gives Jay a tour of his custom 1968 Lincoln Continental, which has a made-to-order leather interior and has been de-chromed to give it a really mean look.
