Leno, Iacocca To Be Honored Tonight
Car buff Jay Leno is heading back to Motown, a year after putting on two free performances for the area’s unemployed residents.
This time around, the “Tonight Show” comic will appear at a fundraising event for the Walter P. Chrysler Museum.
Leno was to be honored at the event Saturday night along with former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca, racing legend Richard Petty and late Chrysler design chief Virgil Exner.
They’ll receive the inaugural Walter P. Chrysler Legacy Award at the sold-out event.
The museum opened in 1999 in the shadow of Chrysler’s headquarters in suburban Auburn Hills.
