The Streetbeast; In his efforts to bring in the Green Hornet, Commissioner Hamilton cuts a deal with a manufacturer for his police department to borrow an experimental tank-like armored-and-armed vehicle, the Streetbeast (the maker hopes the publicity will raise interest from the military); However, two vehicular oriented thugs, the Skid Brothers, are among the viewers of Ham's televised announcement of his new acquisition and decide it's "too cool to be wasted on the pigs"; They have a surprisingly easy time stealing it, to the consternation of both its owners and city officials; The Skids make a deal with a crime boss who wants to fill in the just created power vacuum (see last issue): if they take out the Green Hornet, he puts them on his payroll; During all this, the Hornet is making a deal of his own with a chop-shop operator to build a new, less visually distinctive but equally "accessorized" Black Beauty.
