Publisher's Summary

This week on Car Talk, Patrick in Alaska loves his Prius' gas mileage, but thinks the car could look cooler – say, if its engine was in the body of a Model A Ford. Is it a worthwhile project, or one destined for the Hall of Fame of Bad Ideas?

Meanwhile, Nicole is wondering why her Dad's balking at her plan to take a road trip in a 2009 Subaru – especially since the old man recently drove across the country in a '37 Chevy.

Elsewhere, Diana's looking for a car with just a few requirements: safety, reliability, good gas mileage, room for her to sleep, crappy looks, a microwave oven – okay, strike that last item. Also, a braking strategy that's guaranteed to make nobody ride with you; a few really bad car slogans; and a new Puzzler from the African Rainforest series. All this and more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: November 12, 2011]
