Founder of Bob’s Original Fender Covers talks to Jay Leno on “Jay Leno’s Garage” – Shot March 12, 2014
When innovators like Bob Baker create genius products like the Bob’s Original™ Fender Cover, they tend to get noticed. Jay Leno picked up on Bob’s product, and featured him on his car show called “Jay Leno’s Garage”. As you watch, Bob demonstrates the Premium fender cover on Jay’s Dodge Hemi Challenger, and the universal fender cover on Jay’s ‘56 Chrysler Imperial.
Jay Leno occasionally features small business owners on his show, and in this video he features Auto Fender Bibs. Shortly after shooting this episode, Bob Baker rebranded his company to Bob’s Original™ Fender Covers.
In the video, Jay and Bob discuss the effectiveness and uniqueness of the fender cover, and Jay remarks its ingenuity.
“It really is a great idea because when your car is broken, you immediately want to fix it right away. So you don’t think about [anything] you just get right in there and try to take care of it. You wind up cutting and scratching everything.” –Jay Leno
When the two met up to film the show segment, Jay gave Bob a tour of his garage. Jay Leno owns 130 cars and 93 motorcycles. He’s been collecting them for years and has started “Jay Leno’s Garage” to show them off to the public. Many of these cars are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, so he really saw the value in Bob’s Original™ Fender Covers. Some paint jobs can cost over $20,000 alone.
