    Default Segment on "60 Minutes" last night - spotted a 7

    One of the "60 Minutes" segments last night was about Jay Leno leaving "The Tonight Show", and in one of the shots in his garage there was a 7 in the background. Appeared to be a tasteless color combo of dark blue body w/ black wings.

    No offense intended towards Mr. Hall. I phrased it that way because it looked very much like my 7.

    No Chris, unless he put it back before I noticed.


    edit -- Hey Ron, that name sounds familiar. Does he pal around with a guy named Gary Laughlin?

    As I understand it, Jim Hall is the gentleman who built Jay Leno's 26R-Like Elan.

    I may be starting a rumor here, but I thought I had heard this blue '63 s2 is Jim Hall's:

    Jim is a really nice guy. He did some work on my Elan once while over at a mutual friends shop.

    The funny thing is my wife goes " What is that car a Morgan ? " and I said "No that's a Caterham but there is a Morgan driving it " -delise
