BURBANK, California - Jay Leno has one of the most extensive automobile and motorcycle collections in the world.
He is said to own over 100 vehicles and 90 motorcycles most of them very expensive.
Leno recently heard about 61-year-old Rayleen Mayshaw, a Cheyenne, Wyoming woman who has a 1983 Volkswagen Beetle with 3 million miles on it.
Jay was shocked to hear that in the 30 years that she has owned the car that she has only changed the oil six times.
He was astounded at the fact that an everyday individual could have a car with so many miles on it.
The Tonight Show host checked the Blue Book and he learned that it had a value of $67
Leno decided to call up Mrs. Mayshaw and he offered to buy her car.
Mrs. Mayshaw said that she could not really sell it because she'd owned it for 30 years and it had lots of sentimental value.
She expressed the fact that it had actually become an extension of her.
Jay offered her $15,000.
"SOLD!" Mrs Mayshaw hollered out at the top of her lungs.
Leno said that he plans on having the Volkswagen Beetle restored to its original condition.
SIDENOTE: Jay stated that Mrs. Mayshaw and his latest automobile addition which Rayleen named Mr. Pickles will appear on his show in a few weeks.
