Publisher's Summary

Just what is a Car Talk classic?

Very good question, that. According to our pals at Merriam Webster, classic has several meanings: "simple tailored lines in fashion year after year" (definitely not us) or "serving as a standard of excellence, of recognized value". (Who are we kidding?)

For our purposes, though, we might suggest "historically memorable". Not good, necessarily, but our Car Talk classics are definitely memorable.

So, what's here? Morley Safer, displaying a downright embarassing obsession with his Peugeot. Space shuttle astronaut John Grunsfeld, who's calling from Hawaii. (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.

A standard of excellence? We think not. But memorable? You bet!

Love it

This is a hilarious collection of Click & Clack shows. The brothers are, as always, in fine form. Highly recommended.
