Thumbs up Jay Leno Garage First Look: 2014 Corvette Stingray

Jay takes a first look at the all-new Corvette with Ed Welburn at Browns Classic Auto in Scottsdale, AZ and drives it right out of the showroom

I was wondering when Jay Leno would get his hands on one. Great video, even if there were a lot of inaccuracies, which I'm surprised Welburn didn't catch.

And God this thing sounds amazing.

I just realized the red Nike golf shirts the Corvette team wears are the same shirts we wear at work.

I'm still trying to watch the video. Wife keeps turning on American Idol. I'm watching it during the commercials.

I did see where jay slipped up and said six speed.
