Jay Leno drives classic cars at new Simeone Foundation Museum

Car collector Jay Leno got to test drive a couple of classics at the new Simeone Foundation Museum (6825 Norwitch) of antique race cars while visiting Saturday. The Southwest Philly destination contains one of the world's greatest collections of racing sports cars and Leno, who on Saturday played Caesars in Atlantic City, showed up with wife Mavis and filmed a bit about the museum for his Web site. Not everyone is allowed to take the classic cars for a spin, but the "Tonight Show" host got behind the wheel of the 1953 Cunningham that won at Sebring, a 1929 duPont that ran at Le Mans and a rare Cobra Daytona Coupe.
