For the Season 3 premiere of Jay Leno’s Garage, Jay Leno visited Prairie Chapel Ranch in McLennan County, Texas, to hang out with former President George W. Bush. Because Leno’s show is technically an auto show, the two drove around in Bush’s beloved 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch edition while they talked.

Bush said he enjoys driving the truck on the ranch, though he did add that he hasn’t driven on a road since 1993. While Bush was giving a tour of the ranch, he talked about bipartisanship, saying, “You know, Bill [Clinton] and I — we get along well and have a lot of fun. And it surprises people.”

Bush also talked about the hug he shared with Michelle Obama during the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He said, “I like her.”

Leno and Bush met up with former first lady Laura Bush, who was quick to put Leno to work. Even though he had to uproot a tree and stack compost bags, Leno was fortunate enough to hear Laura Bush call her husband by his nickname, Bushy. Bush quickly told the comedian, “I wish you wouldn’t repeat it.”

Jay Leno’s Garage airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on CNBC.
