  • "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.

(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, Howard needs to drive a mattress from Boston to “Hunga-Dunga”, and wants to know how to keep it from flying off the roof of his car. Tom and Ray know one method that won’t work, as evidenced by an ill-fated attempt to transport 18 sheets of plywood. Elsewhere, Tina just learned a scary and stinky lesson why you shouldn’t drive down a mountain in Neutral; Jerry is looking for an alternative to the “stick and ballet pose” method he’s using to get his convertible top to work; and, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Elisa accepted her parents’ bribe, um we mean, “generous offer” to buy her a new car if she married her live-in boyfriend. And, by popular demand, another reading of the Melissa letter.

He's got a trusty stick to help measure the level of gas in his cylindrical tank, but needs a formula to tell him whether that level means he's got 3/4 of a tank, or is running on fumes. You'd think two MIT grads would be able to help, but, well, you'd be wrong.

Did this combo save his engine, or at least provide brunch while he waited for a tow truck? Elsewhere, does Chip need to resort to "tailpipe diplomacy," in the form of a cherry bomb, to get his neighbors to stop warming up their cars for 20 minutes every morning? Also, Bill and his wife are looking for a $700 car that makes them look eccentric rather than cheap; Jennifer's good deal on a used Volvo may not have been so good; and can Tom in California adjust to his new life as a car salesman without succumbing to the white belt and shoes?
