Did you know that the Vice President of the United States of America is banned from driving? Even six months after he and the President step down after an election, Vice Presidents like Joe Biden have to stare at whatever automotive lust they may havewhile craving just a moment with the barrels wide open -- and someone else has the keys. And that someone else is the Secret Service.

Well, with Jay Leno's persuasion, the Men in Black let the Vice President play in his own 327-powered, four-speed 1967 Corvette convertible. Biden's father, a car dealer at the time, essentially stole Biden and his soon-to-be-wife's cars, and traded them on this Sting Ray before they were married. Biden has kept it in good shape over the years, though his children eventually had the motor rebuilt as a Christmas gift.

You can tell by the look on his face that it's been awhile since he's clutch-dumped his Corvette. Right on, Biden -- Right on.
