  • "Lots of yaks"

    Overall

    I listened to these guys on the way into work today. People passing by must have thought I was crazy because I was laughing out loud with nobody else in the car. They are histerical and really seem to enjoy what they do. I plan to buy a years subscription to downloads to their show. Buy them and you won't be sorry. Much better than listening to the comedy channels on satelite radio.

    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.

    So, what's here? Morley Safer, displaying a downright embarassing obsession with his Peugeot. Space shuttle astronaut John Grunsfeld, who's calling from Hawaii. (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.

    This week on Car Talk, Tom and Ray help test a device that should strike fear in the hearts of all mechanics: a voice biometrics-based lie detector. Elsewhere, Corinne can't seem to get an oil change without a broken dipstick as a bonus; Christine's keys are stuck in her ignition--which may not be too worrisome, since her car won't start; and can struggling musician Dan fix his van's exhaust with guitar strings and an orange juice can? Also, a story that offers even more proof why you should never drive like Tommy! All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

He's hoping to drive it from New York to Minnesota, but will the lack of French mechanics and parts leave him uttering, "Mon Dieu!" if he breaks down?

Is her car still safe to drive, without a football helmet? Meanwhile, Jeff relocated from New Orleans to New Mexico, and the higher altitude is wreaking havoc on his automatic bread maker. Apparently Martha Stewart's line was busy this week, so we'll see if Tom and Ray can bring some life back to his loaves.

    This week on Car Talk, a day of maple sugaring came to a bad end for John when he spilled a five-gallon container of syrup in his car. How can he get the sticky stuff out of the seatbelt holders, short of slipping a stack of pancakes in there to sop it up? Also, a classic Car Talk driveway moment, literally, as Jason pours gas down his truck's carburetor, and tries to start it on the air. Will the 20th time be the charm? And on Stump the Chumps, we find out whether Tom and Ray correctly diagnosed Paula's whistling Bronco. All this, plus Tommy celebrates the arrival of a brand-new jalopy, this week on Car Talk.

    We stopped tallying the hate mail we've received at Car Talk years ago. But one letter still remains on top of our pile of vituperative missives: this week's offering from one Melissa Peterson, a.k.a., "That Little Twerp." Maybe it was her need to let us know that her dog hates our show as much as she does. But Tom and Ray will soldier on, despite Melissa's wrath, and try to convince Gloria that shutting off her car while going 80 miles per hour is not a great way to address its acceleration problems.

Does Richard need to turn to shock therapy to ground the goats and save his relationship? Elsewhere, Jeff's Isuzu needs a new engine, but Jeff is worried that a transplant will irrevocably change his car's soul. Can Tom and Ray provide some divine guidance on this existential-automotive conundrum? Also, Helena and her husband found a dream used car with one idiosyncrasy—it only goes in Reverse. Good thing it came with a spare transmission in the trunk. And, guess what turned up in a government auction—Sonja Henie's tutu! Find out how, this week on Car Talk.

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?

Is BMW being extra thoughtful or do they just want to make sure Daniel stays alive long enough to finish paying off the car? Elsewhere, Mary Lynn's husband has been telling her to ignore her car's scary thumping noise, so she's hoping to get it fixed while he's away in China. Also, Reine's husband may have gotten his wallet flushed along with an unnecessary radiator flush....
