Also, Tamara’s family needs help saying goodbye to their beloved Vanagon; Mike may be facing a winter without power steering; and Melissa’s husband is about to learn what happens when you cheap out on snow tires. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Mary loaded her Mustang's trunk with compost two months ago. Her husband says it's rotting the floor, but Mary wants to keep the compost all winter for ballast. One added wrinkle: Mary got the Mustang because her husband works for Ford - at least, for the time being. Elsewhere, Carla would love to escape from Alaska for a bit, but the fact that her truck will only drive backwards is making it difficult.

    Some worthy things just have a bad reputation. On today's show we re-evaluate bad reputation stories: pig pens are a mess; tequila gives you a killer hangover; and tofu tastes like nothing. Often, you can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. For instance, Sy Montgomery talks about her amazing pet pig. Mr. Cutlets talks about a pig of a whole other kind - a smuggled ham.
