Even <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/jayleno/">Jay Leno</a>, who seems to have one of just about every cool car in history, admits to not knowing much about it. Which makes for an interesting interview for Jay, and a cool video for us.<br /> <br />One of the neatest elements of the Local Motors product - for those that like to swing a wrench, anyway - is that all of the Rally Fighters are build in the company's facility with the help of the owners themselves. That's a way of getting these "component cars" on the road, legally, without conforming to the strict crash standards for large-scale production cars, but it also means that each owner is really invested in the car that they've just purchased. We'd guess that world-class stuff-jumping ability might be a big draw, too. <br /> <br /><a href="/2013/01/15/local-motors-rallyfighter-crowds-into-jay-lenos-garage/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch this fascinating episode of <em>Jay Leno's Garage</em>, and get schooled about the ins and outs of hand-made rally cars. <p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/20/local-motors-rally-fighter-crowds-into-jay-lenos-garage/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Local Motors Rally Fighter crowds into Jay Leno's Garage</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/20/local-motors-rally-fighter-crowds-into-jay-lenos-garage/">Local Motors Rally Fighter crowds into Jay Leno's Garage</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 20 Jan 2013 20:01:00 EST.
