The Best of Car Talk
The best of Car Talk, the long-running public radio program hosted by brothers and long-time mechanics Ray and Tom Magliozzi (better known as "Click and Clack, The Tappet Brothers").
This week on the Best of Car Talk, we hear from Tom and Ray's all-time #1 nemesis, Melissa Peterson. Years after her first missive, Melissa wants to remind the guys that she (and her dog) still hate them, but would they mind giving her some potentially life saving advice? Elsewhere, Eric's horn started blaring in he middle of the night, and he resorted to a hammer to silence it. So now he's got a busted horn and still doesn't know what set it off. Also, Pat's Lumina is running out of gas with several gallons still in the tank; Farrah's VW is blowing hot air non-stop; and Suzi's Porsche has become a great conversation starter with her male colleagues, but she can't answer any questions to keep the conversation going. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Vern's sister-in-law's husband accused him of wrecking the engine in his Windstar by adding too much oil. On a scale of 1 to 10, how guilty should Vern feel? And does their tenuous connection on the family tree drive the guilt meter into negative numbers? Also, tales of VW Bugs: Maureen's caught on fire, and she's hoping for some encouragement that it won't happen again, while Wendy is wondering if the one she's been gifted by her parents can make it from Kansas to Washington. Also, a close call at Car Talk Plaza—how our Producer Dougie's laziness may have saved his life. All this and more, this week on The Best Car Talk.
