    Story

    Much has been said and written about Car Talk and it is worth checking out if you have not already done so. You can enjoy this without listening to all the episodes, however starting the series off properly will make this more enjoyable. Well written, educational, and thought-provoking. Loved it! Have not seen the movie and would say the book is worth the read since movies tend to disappoint. If you saw the movie, this is a MUST read since it has so much more to offer from what I heard.

    Car Talk Fact: 98 percent of misinformation in the world comes from fathers (the other 2 percent comes from us). Throughout history, when a child asks a father a question, the father feels he must give the child an answer. Even if he doesn't know what the answer is (which, as we said, is the case 98 percent of the time).

    This brand-new collection rounds up some of our all-time favorite calls about animals and cars -- like Sidney, whose lunch disappeared in the air vents (and then died there!); Richard and his goat problem; and the dog who likes to ride on top of the truck cab. We've also included the "Andy Letter," possibly the greatest letter ever received at Car Talk Plaza, along with the phone call that precipitated it -- a call about electric brakes on a cattle trailer.

    Why is it that so many of our calls start out talking about, say, differentials or power steering, but wind up discussing men, women, devious ploys of deception, and power trips? Simple. To quote our producer, Dougie Berman: "A car is just a big inanimate object through which we reveal ourselves and our true personalities. Tangled up with cars are the issues of money, power, independence, self-image, confidence, generosity, and honesty, just to name a few." We couldn't have said it better, if at all.

    Fresh out of the Dewey, Cheetham, and Howe audio dumpster, our Second Best of Car Talk features some of the least-lousy calls we've ever aired! Seriously, we've had some pretty darned wacko calls, from "Clinton Sends Vowels to Bosnia" to "Gail, the Toll-gate Fugitive", and, our personal favorite, the tale of our German pal Max and his little Schnauzer.

(Well, 700 miles over Hawaii, actually.) And, there's one of our personal all-time favorite callers, our pal Dave from Bemidji, sharing the sordid tale of his journey to Alaska.

A holiday miracle, or might it be the same earthly reason said Fiat's mileage then decreases by the same amount? And, does it have anything to do with those guys laughing their butts off in the corner? Meanwhile, Rachel may need a miracle to keep her Camry's engine from jumping into the passenger seat, though opening her wallet might work just as well.

And, has either brother ever been hauled off to jail? We're not sure why anyone wants to know this stuff, either, but fortunately there's also time for some car questions. There's Debra, who can't turn her key in the ignition until she pushes the car forward; Rane, who's worried that the engine might be about to fall out of her Isuzu; and Prashanth, whose wife is coming over from India, but may hop on the first plane back after she sees his banged up Corolla.

It stars Dave and his girlfriend; travels from Alaska to Bemidji, Minnesota; and the featured cast includes an overheating Chevy Cavalier, a crescent wrench with no sockets, an old campfire grill, and-- yes-- a zit on Dave's forehead. As for the plot, well, you'll just have to hear for yourself.

Thus we are introduced to Foreign Accent Syndrome, a neurological oddity which Tommy will be happy to explain, if he can ever stop laughing. Elsewhere, what goes in, must come out—unless "it" is a piece of the Berlin Wall, stuffed into the trunk of a BMW. A few thousand miles away, John is having the opposite problem—his Bronco's dipstick refuses to stay in. Also, should Julie fess up about her fender bender in the family van? And, Crystie dropped a nail into her gas tank, and is worried about an explosion. Her mechanic and the Chevy dealer refuse to take her seriously—and she thinks Tom and Ray will? Find out, this week on Car Talk.

Does Ray need to start searching for a ’65 Ambassador, or is Tommy forever banned from uttering the words, “sleek black beauty”? Elsewhere, Jill’s Civic sounds like Frankenstein, and Aron’s Nissan is imitating Larry from the Three Stooges. Also, how can Craig make his minivan more sexy, other than trading it for a Porsche? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
