featured in Jay Leno's Garage episode.
He walked into Bob Estes' La Brea showroom with his mother and bought it when he was @ 17.
Drove it to Beverly Hills High School (I think it was) - see below.
I'm guessing he was a popular kid?
Eventually cracked the transaxle on a speed-bump and parked it.
Sold it as a non-runner.
20 years later (in the 80s) Jay Leno was buying some cars from from a guy in a dark warehouse in the Valley and he noticed a familiar shape under a cover.
"What's that?" he asked.
"A Miura, it doesn't work, I'll throw it in if we close this deal, good luck with it"..
