There are few car collectors as rabid as chat show host Jay Leno, and the latest car he’s turned his attention to is Keith Charvonia’s Drag’n Kaiser. This episode of Jay Leno’s Garage is dedicated to Keith’s ’51 Kaiser project, and sheds even more light on the incredible details behind this beautiful build. Eight years of hard work went in, and 15 minutes isn’t enough to do more than a quick walk around and a short road-test, but it still gives a great insight into the myriad details that have made this car so special.

I followed the build here on Speedhunters. It's good to see that Jay takes the time to show how this built came to what it is now. To go over the car quickly wouldn't give it the right it deserves. Still a great build Keith!

I couldn't help but smile the entire time watching this, but you can trace the car's 4-door roots though, I wish it was more uniform.
