What his garage show, that initially was just his money being used to show and teach about the cars and motorcycles in his and others' collections, does for young guys and for older enthusiasts is very respectable.
I know he got flak for what happened to Conan, but I always thought the better man of the two won out. Maybe not always the better comedian, but then that's not what we are talking about here, nor what I would support for the position.
