    This week on Car Talk, the Auto-Psychiatry booth is open, as Dennis tries to figure out why he dreamed about being offered a 1966 Ford Fairlane. Is a Fairlane memory buried in his past, or to paraphrase Dr. Freud, is a heap just a heap? Meanwhile, over in the Auto-Relational Department, Donna treated herself to a spiffy Mazda Miata, but can't get her husband to relinquish the steering wheel. Also, Tamson's mechanic may be using the "slow milking" approach to diagnosing her Beetle's noise; Ray has a few final words on Tommy's Dart; and does Dave need driving lessons or relaxation therapy to prepare for a Summer trip through Ireland with five women? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

    We're going on a road trip! Sure, it'd be nice to have a corvette cruising along Route 66, but even if your wheels are more mundane and the road goes to grandma's house, there's something mystical about a taking off on four wheels. Jane and Michael Stern give us some great road food finds. Plus, what every trip should have is a little stash of homemade sandwiches in the cooler.

Also, Suzy checks in with the final report on her attempted drive across Mexico in a VW Vanagon; Andy felt like he was driving naked and after confirming he was wearing pants, determined his automatic seat belt wasn't so automatic anymore.
