Jerry Seinfeld’s “new” show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is a simple concept and it works well, especially when he chooses a 1977 Volkswagen Westfalia as the vehicle for his comedy. Here he teams up with fellow comedian Jim Gaffigan in the camper juxtaposed with the streets of New York. It’s ironic that they both claim to prepare for their routines, yet this seems fairly natural and off the cuff. If you’re a fan of both Volkswagen campers and the long running TV sitcom Seinfeld then this is the video for you. Click the picture to watch.

It’s a great show, Jay Leno’s Garage on Youtube. I think he’s found his true calling mixing his passion for cars with his TV persona. Here we find comedian Gabriel Iglesias showing off his 1966 Volkswagen Samba. He recalls buying his first car, a similar bus in much worse shape than this one, for $700. Gabriel mentions the ’66 featured here is probably worth around $100,000! In my opinion, no car has appreciated so rapidly and so high as the Volkswagen bus of late. He asks Jay not to take it on the freeway, but he does anyway. The reason for his concern was a sloppy steering box, but he didn’t come out and say it. All went well and the two funny men wind up at a local L.A. eatery.
