This week on Car Talk, yes that is a "b" at the end of "Crab," but a "p" might better describe the smell pervading Annette's Mercedes after she left a bag of giant king crabs in the car overnight. Can Tom and Ray help her find a way to get rid of the stench that doesn't involve a match?
Meanwhile, Frank from Los Angeles has been losing sleep for a few decades, wondering what caused the car he was towing 25 years ago to explode and burst into flames. Also, bride-to be Kelli learns that a toilet brush may be her best weapon to get her fiance to stop cooking her Accord's engine; and we get the inside scoop on Ray's latest million dollar idea--the plainclothes salesman. All this and more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 14, 2010]
