I like Jay Leno's reviews, its like listening to a mate talking about the car. Just compare his reviews, with his honesty, to young know it all pundits you see so often.

One of my prize possessions is a Montreal brochure and I’ve seen cars but I was unaware of how the eyelids over the lamps pivoted. But what’s the shiny disc above the instrument binnacle? It looks like a keyhole.

Its the turn signal indicator. Look at the video at 4.40

Lovely car, and sounds fantastic.
I also had never seen the eyebrows doing that. So they have no real purpose - given that they move out of the way the moment you turn the lights on?

Thanks for sharing a really cool review.
I think that interior is lovely, the dials clusters, switches, bliss. Was reading Modern Classics earlier this week, it had a Ferrari 288GTO feature, beautiful, now I think the Alfa's interior is preferable.

Did you notice when the bonnet was up he pointed out 2 lights, for working on the car in the dark, genius. From my Giulietta headlights I thought Alfa didn't believe in driving in the dark :)

I like the eye brows too, never seem them in the lights on mode, it's the kind of thing that would make me decide on buying a car*. A nice take on popup lights that were popular back then.

*If it wasn't for the shinny engine bay I wonder if I still would have bought my GTV. I Kept it for 11 years because of the engine performance/sound.

So many lush details on the Montreal. Is the interior light built into the base of the rear view?

Yes and that is the same on my '72 Spider, and it works!

Great video - I never quite appreciated the two distinctive looks lights on and off. Enjoy the climatic advice too, something I have always adhered to with my cars.
