Very similar to the axial piston pumps in industrial hydraulics. Very popular today.

Gotta love Jay and Jay Leno's Garage!
 
I only saw my very first episode just a couple of weeks ago. (I know, where have I been, right?) But now that I've seen about 15-20 episodes, I can say that JLG is a very well-done program. Jay knows his stuff, but he never overdoes the gearhead act. He tells the viewers enough technical stuff without going totally into gearhead land... I think he strikes just the right balance. And of course, he seems like the nicest, most down-to-earth guy you could ever meet, not one of those affected, self-important, egotistical tattooed jerks like on so many other "reality" car shows.
 
Great show, great host, cool cars.  B)

He really is, I spotted him at the old Kruse swap meet at the labor day weekend in Auburn about 25 years ago. Since it was early and I normally do not bother celebrities when I spot them in public I left him alone. Instead he came up to me and started a cordial conversation with me for about ten minutes.

Hey, Dale,
 
Congratulations on your retirement!   Welcome to sunny Aridzona!   Whereabouts are you going to be calling home?    B)

Thanks. I will be living in Fountain Hills. Rob Cantwell said you guys are good guys to know. I plan on joining both model clubs. Look for me in September as a visitor at both meetings.
