Jay Leno's Garage has moved to Pebble Beach for the week. This time around, the affable comedian is taking a look at the Cadillac Elmiraj Concept that debuted during the Monterey car week, and is talking to General Motors vice president of global design, Ed Welburn.

looks like GM and Cadillac are going back to the bill Mitchell days of the mid sixties for inspiration.
