Leno checks out ’64 Honda S600 hot rod

Among the hundreds of cars and motorcycles Jay Leno has in his own enviable collection, he’s got a classic 1964 Honda S600. It’s a cherry example that he’s been restoring and it was recently featured in an episode of his popular video series. But this new video shows a different take on the little beast altogether.

Rather than go for preservation, this vintage Japanese roadster has undergone the full hot-rod treatment. Or more like a rat rod, we should say, given its heavily patinated appearance. But don’t let looks deceive you: this weathered little roadster is packing quite a punch, from the worked-over mechanical bits and motorcycle components to the nitrous tank in the trunk. Turn up the speakers to hear it shriek and check it out in the video here.
