    Now you can waste not one, not two, but four perfectly good hours listening to Car Talk Classics, featuring some of Tom and Ray's favorite complete programs: everything from opening rant to bogus answers to eccentric closing credits. Whether they really help callers fix their transmissions is an open question, but the Car Talk guys certainly know how to transfix their listeners.

    Why is it that so many of our calls start out talking about, say, differentials or power steering, but wind up discussing men, women, devious ploys of deception, and power trips? Simple. To quote our producer, Dougie Berman: "A car is just a big inanimate object through which we reveal ourselves and our true personalities. Tangled up with cars are the issues of money, power, independence, self-image, confidence, generosity, and honesty, just to name a few." We couldn't have said it better, if at all.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, between Being and Nothingness is—a loose heat shield?

Elsewhere, Mary Jane hopes the guys can help save her marriage by not answering her husband's call about his Ford Fairlane; Sandy may need to be bribed to get a diagnosis for her noisy Accord; David parked his Civic in the garage for a week and now the parking brake is stuck; and Barry can't understand why his Mercedes is a bug magnet.

    You send just one of your brother's heaps to the crusher, and you never hear the end of it. But this week on The Best of Car Talk, Patti's mom's attempt to drive her Datsun from Houston to Boston may spare Ray from ever having to hear the phrase "sleek black beauty" again. Elsewhere, Casey's career making bagpipes may be the only way to rid his Civic of the garter snakes that have taken residence.

Elsewhere, Nancy's 3-year old son gets carsick when she drives "the wiggly road", aka, The Pacific Coast Highway, but does fine when Dad's behind the wheel.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ted put his carpentry skills to work by redirecting his van's leaky exhaust through a series of pipes outside the van. His pipe-shrouded van might scare off clients, and he may have greatly increased the chances of setting the van on fire, but is Ted still worthy of a Click and Clack Genius award?

Whether discussing man's best friend (but worst passenger) or searching for the perfect vehicle for those who are "horizontally challenged", Pinkwater keeps Tom and Ray in stitches along with the show's far-flung audience.

Is her only option to turn the truck upside down and hope gravity does the trick? Meanwhile, the laws of space and time are being challenged in Colorado, where Ian's girlfriend's odometer is spinning backwards. Should she trade her car in before or after it hits negative numbers?
