Jay Leno is back on prime-time TV with Jay Leno’s Garage – his new 1-hour show aired Wednesday evening at 10 pm on CNBC. It’s everything we love about Jay and his cars so go now and set your DVR for the show.

If you missed the show, there was a great piece that aired towards the end with a custom Corvette and a certain NASCAR driver you might be familiar with!

1968 L88 Corvette Sells for $330,000 at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas

On Saturday evening at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction, this red/red 1968 L88 Corvette found a new home for the low, low price of $330,000. That’s somewhat surprising given the fact that other 1968 L88 Corvettes have sold for quite a bit more at recent sales.
