Jay recalled the ’37 Ford pickup truck which became his first car. The problem was that it didn’t run as smoothly as they anticipated — probably due to the fact that.

From there on, Jay never stopped on saving a portion of his money to buy cars until he built his massive car empire! Check out the other luxurious cars hiding in Jay’s garage!
