Seinfeld borrows Pa. man’s rare Jaguar

    A western Pennsylvania man says Jerry Seinfeld left him a nice “thank you” note after borrowing the man’s rare car for the comedian’s latest episode of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

    Scott Drab, of Irwin, says Seinfeld wanted to drive a green 1967 Jaguar Mark II when he was recording an episode featuring fellow comedian Robert Klein. The show began airing online Thursday at comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com.

    Drab tells KDKA-TV that he was only too glad to lend Seinfeld the car, which a crew picked up in a truck, shipped to New York for recording, then returned four days later.

    Drab says he opened the glove box to find “a handwritten note saying thank you from Jerry Seinfeld. I was really deeply touched by it.”

    Drab has a private collection of classic Jaguars and memorabilia.
