This week on Car Talk, Eleanor is about to head off on a 6-month 'round-the-world bike trip. She wants to know what she should do with her Mazda B2200 pick-up while she's gone. Tom and Ray want to know how she plans to pedal across several large bodies of water. Will either party be satisfied by the other's answers?
Meanwhile, Kevin loves his vintage T-Bird, except that driving it lulls him to sleep. Is he worn out from the euphoria, or sucking in a few too many carbon monoxide fumes?
Also, a Porsche owner gets a painful reminder of why engine removal is a two-person job, and a soprano suddenly starts letting loose with arias under the hood of a Honda Civic. All that and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: January 1, 2011]
