    Car Talk, winner of a Peabody Award, is broadcast each week to NPR stations nationwide. The world's wackiest call-in show, it mixes automotive advice with wisecracks, roadside philosophy, and guffaws.

Well, Patty thinks lots of things do and is dismayed by her boyfriend's plan to gift her a set of tires for Christmas. Will Tom and Ray take Patty's side or thank her boyfriend for the idea? Also, we hear from Suzy, who was planning to drive from Carlsbad, California all the way across Mexico in a VW Vanagon.
