The Gas Monkey Garage scandal, also referred to as the "Spank My Monkey" scandal, involved the well-known hot rod garage, Coker Tire and the validity of a car the two were offering to give away at a Specialty Equipment Marketing Association show. The initial situation began with people questioning the car that was being given away because it was almost identical to other cars the show and parties involved had offered as a giveaway before.
