Take 3 of your best friends or family to tour Jay Leno's incredible collection of approximately 200 vehicles at his Big Dog Garage. Jay has one of the world's greatest car collections and a tour of this magnificent facility should be on every car aficionado's bucket list!

You are suppporting high school/college auto body repair students:


While many students are being "pushed" towards the traditional 4 year college route, graduating with limited employment options, and a significant amount of student debt, the technical trade workforce is seeing their average age increase and companies in the technical trades are desperately looking for entry-level staff. The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) is a national 501c3 charity that supports high school and college automotive collision repair programs, students, and instructors across the United States. CREF's work includes attracting students to these local technical school programs, supporting them while in school, and then connecting them with local/national automotive collision industry employers. CREF returns on average 90 cents of every dollar donated back to the schools/students and are a Charity Navigator rated 4 (out of 4) Star charity.
