Shotwell had the Knack (Car Knack), and so does Jay Leno



I've joked about homebrew cars -- we have a bumper sticker on CafĂ© Press that says "My Other Car Was Homebrewed From Junkbox Parts."  Well, in this video Jay Leno shows us a true homebrew car, this one built by a 17 year-old in 1931.  In the video you will hear some interesting comments from Jay on the kind of technical and mechanical skills that were expected of young men in the 1920s and 30s.  At the end of the video, watch Jay suffer the consequences of replacing a 20 amp fuse with an 8 amp fuse.  Who among us have not done something similar?
