Saw Pat Leno's beautiful red TR3A at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum's
"Day of Triumph" show in Brookline MA a few years ago. Mass license
plate says "OLD RED". Never did meet him, but I did want to talk to
him about his car. Tried to find his phone number, but it was unlisted
(a shock, I know). Found an address and wasn't sure it was his, but
wrote anyway (surely you all remember snail mail). About a week later,
my phone rang and it was Pat. Super nice guy and very helpful.
I didn't know he was Jay's brother, though I suspected they were
related given the proximity. At the end of the 30 minute or so
conversation, I finally asked.
Interesting that Frank mentions Jay's red TR3 in LA. Pretty sure the
one I saw was Pat's, not Jay's. We even talked about where he had it
painted, paint formulas etc. Who knows though. Can't imagine Jay's
looking any better than this one.
