BEWARE! AE86 Christmas is under siege by dastardly lowlife car thief scum that strives to ruin our car human holiday season. In this very special Holiday Christmas episode, we step into the mind of the car thieves that have hit the bay area, and give actual helpful tips on how to not get your car stolen! In addition we cover the classic holiday topics such as: What if Michael Jackson was a car guy drifter? The value of a Toyota CHR, a serious discussion on 3rd brake lights, and how Turtle and Wes shared a precious moment on the touge. Join us for our year end episode, pop open that fizzy drink of choice of yours, and stare at your car out the window because the second walk away from it, it will be stolen.
