Imagine being 17 years old again, with no responsibilities other than hanging with your friends in the garage, playing boy-racer in your first car, and spending the little money you have on “upgrades”. This is basically what Juicebox Unboxed is, except these are adults. And behind the scene, they probably have responsibilities.
The entire Unboxed series, which is currently at episode #36, is the story through which Neil, the focus of the channel, picks up an AE86 Tueno, literally rotting away in a field. Unboxed follows his journey of restoration. They visit some interesting characters while trying to source parts, they light each other on fire at least 5 times per episode, and partake in general shop mayhem, often involving skateboards or drones, and usually more fire.
All joking aside, there’s some really quality work that takes place on this channel. From full panel replacement, to custom part fabrication, engine re-builds, etc. All while taking time to hack together some temporary repair on one of their haphazard daily drivers. But then subsequently light that on fire as well.
These guys have figured it out. They’re grown men, doing everything that we tried to do as kids, except they have the resources we never did. Their shop resembles an aircraft hangar, their tools and skillsets are seemingly endless between the members of the group, and they have the funds to make it all come together.
This may not contain Grand Tour quality cinematography, but by god is it fun.
