    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.

    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).

    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.

Find out what caused its way-beyond-timely demise. Elsewhere, Fred decided to do a good deed and close the door of a stranger's parked truck. Unfortunately, a half hour later said truck caught on fire. Is Fred an unwitting arsonist?

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.

    This week on Car Talk, Steve moved to Chicago for a job and a girlfriend. He lost both. But what's confusing him is why he didn't lose his ride, as well. His Acura was the only car that didn't get towed from a parking lot during a party. Did the parking deities take pity on him? Elsewhere, Chuck decided to cut his air conditioner belt because it was smoking, and now may find himself on the FBI's Most Wanted list; and Heidi may find out why her Check Engine light is blinking, if she can make it through a few Magliozzi detours into Kirchoff's laws, MIT admissions, and the U.S. Army.

    This week on Car Talk, Wendall's Bronco burst into flames and was burnt to crisp, right after a 200-mile drive. Was it electrical? Fuel? A spouse holding an insurance policy? Elsewhere, Barry is hoping to find true love by fixing his co-worker's windshield wipers, and avoiding her jealous boyfriend; Donna needs a gracious way to tell her husband his theories about keeping her gas tank full are "boooooguuss"; and Deborah's lurching efforts to learn to drive a stick shift aren't being made any easier by her Civic's loud whine.

"For in the spot where Dart once sat, there's now but oil stains." Later, Tom and Ray try to rescue a spoon trapped in one car's vents, and a 20-dollar bill trapped in a driver's door; and, on a slightly more urgent note, they try to keep Eric's engine from disintegrating.

Elsewhere, Steve drove over a bowling ball outside a topless bar, which sounds like a great joke set-up, but the punch line could be very expensive. Also, Shanthi is ready to buy a car, but has no place to park it. Does she need to move, or should she forget about the car and keep mooching rides from her friends? And, how can Johanna make sure her summer of teepee living doesn't start with her car getting washed away by spring flooding? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

    This week on Car Talk, Mara has tried everything to rid her car of its ant infestation. Well, maybe not everything, since there are no burn marks. Tom and Ray have a way to lure them out that is at once incredibly creative-- and very stupid. Elsewhere, how does Diane reconcile her husband's desire to rebuild his BMW with her parent's need to get it off their farm, so the potatoes can be planted? Also, a lesson to car dealers: if you're going to make up a name for your wife, choose one you know how to spell. And, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom, Ray, and Joan's husband correctly diagnosed her screeching Ford Festiva. All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
