The Holiday Season is upon us! In a departure from our usual format, the TTAC crew talks about Christmas gifts for their cars and drivers, as well as gifts for the car enthusiast, both serious and humorous. Our guest for this episode is Mario, who talks about his interests in cars, Volvos, Hondas, but not McLaren!

On behalf of all of us at The Thing About Cars, we hope you and yours are all remaining safe and warm. Happy Holidays!
