Hey, isn’t that… Comedian and noted car buff Jay Leno, checking out some of the auto-themed exhibits at the National Museum of American History on Monday?

The former “Tonight Show” host was casually dressed and traveling solo, our tipster says, while taking in the “Engines of Change” and “America on the Move” displays. And while he was clearly in his element (he owns one of the most extensive collections of vintage vehicles in the country), Leno happily posed for photos with several groups of school kids who approached him.

Leno’s publicist said the comic has kept up an intense work schedule, appearing at clubs and events around the country — and posting videos to his car-centric YouTube channel —  since leaving his on-air hosting gig.
