    We're in the holiday spirit, and there are several reasons to be thankful. For starters, you probably haven't spent the last couple of weeks trying to get a lug nut off your Lincoln. And even if you have, you probably didn't resort to ballistics. Hear what happens when an armed and exceptionally frustrated shade tree mechanic finally loses his cool. If that's not enough, give thanks that you're not our poor hosts being forced to play Stump the Chumps.

    Typical advice from Tom and Ray's Car Talk: "Car won't go in reverse? Buy a house with a circular driveway." A.k.a. The Tappet Brothers or Click and Clack (like the sounds from a car in disrepair), Tom and Ray have "faces perfect for radio" and Boston accents as thick as chowder. Their show, one of National Public Radio's most popular, lets listeners (2.3 million of them) call in with their car woes while they dish out their wit and know-how.
