    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.

    This week on Car Talk, did Tom and Ray's advice help free a Mini from a frozen puddle? Find out as Katie from Boulder returns for a round of Stump the Chumps, with a tale of even more woe and intrigue. Meanwhile, from the mysterious noises department, Karen's Jeep sounds like it's been eating too many beans. Nate's Subaru is channeling a Singer sewing machine, and did somebody drop a soda straw behind the dashboard of Kevin's Camry?

    This week on Car Talk, a winter driving tip from Katie in Boulder: don't leave your Mini parked in a four-inch deep puddle, unless you want to find it encased in four inches of ice, up to its rims. The question now is, can Tom and Ray stop laughing long enough to help her figure out a way to extricate it? Also, a water pump replacement turns into a scavenger hunt in the engine of a '96 Civic; an unfortunate oyster shucking incident somehow leads to a new noise in a Ford Escort.

    This week on Car Talk, a creative birthday present spawns an auto-infestation crisis for Beatrice in Pennsylvania.

Find out.

    This week, Car Talk kicks off with a few choice one-liners from the late Rodney Dangerfield. Then it's off to Vermont where native Burlington resident Sam is in for a load of grief (and a large boat payment) for letting his Civic run out of coolant. Meanwhile, down in Connecticut, Wendy's trips to the dog park have become a tad embarrassing, thanks to the "kick the oil can" sound coming from her Yukon after she shuts it off.

    This week on Car Talk, a used-car salesman chooses an opportune time to turn into a consumer advocate. Meanwhile, out in Oregon, Danni could've used someone to tell her not to buy the second-hand Range Rover that called her name, in the midst of P.I.S.(that's, "Pregnancy Induced Insanity"). She's already been hit with a few thousand bucks worth of repairs and her husband can't even fit in the car.

    This week on Car Talk, Dan's new used Corolla may have come with a bonus gift. The previous owner says she threw her engagement ring at her fiance and it fell behind the dashboard. Is the ring still there, or on the new fiancee of the mechanic who previously looked for it?

    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.

    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, can Liz use her Maxima to remove some unwanted shrubs from her yard, or will her bumper wind up as part of the landscape? Elsewhere, Nancy's 16-year-old son wants a Camaro. Will she be abdicating all parental responsibility if she buys him one, and is there a good alternative that's big, ugly, and cool?

    This week on Car Talk, Chad in Arizona seeks help convincing his wife that a '96 Tahoe with 212,000 miles is the perfect vehicle for their 2,000-mile summer vacation. Can he get Tom and Ray's blessing, and perhaps even an incantation? Maybe, but he's going to have to do a better selling job than, "It looks good." Meanwhile, what's worse than getting your car broken into? How about if your mechanic, Nunzio the Knucklescraper, takes it for a night on the town and ruins the alignment?

    This week, we continue celebrating (and apologizing for) Car Talk's 30th Anniversary on NPR, with some of our all-time favorite "out there" calls. Our roster includes space shuttle astronaut John, whose government vehicle had a slight hesitation problem at 17,000 miles per hour; Gail, the Most Wanted Tollbooth fugitive at the Betsy Ross Bridge; Dave from Bemidji, MN, whose road trip from Alaska included using a campfire grill to fix his catalytic converter; Will, whose old dog Moses "blew beets"; and the saga of one of our heroes, lawn chair pilot Larry Walters.

    This brand-new collection rounds up some of our all-time favorite calls about animals and cars -- like Sidney, whose lunch disappeared in the air vents (and then died there!); Richard and his goat problem; and the dog who likes to ride on top of the truck cab. We've also included the "Andy Letter," possibly the greatest letter ever received at Car Talk Plaza, along with the phone call that precipitated it -- a call about electric brakes on a cattle trailer.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rick's diesel Rabbit ran out of fuel and the only liquid Rick had on hand was a bottle of scotch. Could he have poured the scotch into the tank or would Rick have been better off drinking it and waiting for the tow truck? Elsewhere, a tree fell on Murli's Corolla (we think it made a sound), and he doesn't know whether to replace the roof or have it straightened; Sally's steering column is sending smoke signals; and Kerry needs help navigating the "Pit of Despair," a giant water-filled pothole in her building's parking lot.

    Remember Heather and her cranky mechanic Helmut? Heather took her Volvo to Helmut for a stuck glove box and wound up spending $3000 for a new fuel system, only to have her car begin dying at high altitudes. This week on The Best of Car Talk, Heather returns for a round of Stump the Chumps and we find out how much of a dummkopf Helmut was. Elsewhere, Lori's boyfriend has begun collecting old cars but can't drive any of them due to his poor vision. Will Tom and Ray help Lori convince him to try a different hobby?

She's worried that driving through this "pit of despair" every day is killing her Honda. Are those fears warranted, and does Kerry need the number for Vinny's Late Night Concrete Services, Inc.?

Aaron is afraid to drive, so Kate's doing all the traveling and it's become a bit of a pain in the butt – figuratively, and literally.
