Publisher's Summary

In 1987, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, also known as Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, made the leap from nursing the motley car population of New England to creating the nationally beloved public radio phenomenon that we all know as Car Talk. The advice may be a little suspect, and the memories in desperate need of a tune-up, but the laughs are genuine as Click and Clack look back on an illustrious - if not industrious - 25 years of delighting NPR audiences with their wit, wisdom, and occasionally relevant musings on the maintenance of cars. Lovingly compiled by the long-suffering lackeys at Car Talk Plaza, this collection represents the most memorable, most hilarious moments from the show's vast archives.

Stories all on other best of Car Talk CD's

Love these guys, and miss the show and Tom, but all of these tales appear on other CD's as well. So I, now have at least 2 of each of these. Because i have more than just the best of series, I have 3 copies of some of these stories.
