About Episode 101

On this episode of Ignition Jonny Lieberman gets to do something he's dreamed about doing since he was 10-years-old — ride in the back of a Subaru Brat! Standing for Bi-drive Recreational All-Terrain Vehicle, the Brat was a lovable answer to America's notorious chicken tax — the law that states all pickup trucks not built in the USA much pay a 25% import tariff. Many examples exist of work arounds, but none were quite so creative/dangerous as the Brat. Subaru has come a very long way since the late 1970s, but they've never really recaptured the magic of their mini-truck, the Brat. At least one former U.S. President agrees.
