Despite some truly impassioned pleading from Jay Leno himself – including calling on Arizona’s notoriously Republican-rich voters to beat the $600,000 level set the last time Leno sold a vehicle for this particular charity… in California – bidding for George Bush’s 2009 Ford F-150 pickup truck stalled at $300,000.
All proceeds will be sent to the Fisher House Foundation, so at least it’s $300K going to a good cause. Feel free to check out the live image gallery above, which includes shots showing Leno’s skills helming the auction, and read through the official auction description below.
*UPDATE: Video of the auction and Leno’s prods to the crowd for more money can now be seen below.
