    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?

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rory’s ego is in trouble, after he failed to siphon gas from his car to his lawn tractor. Has siphoning gotten more difficult, or is Rory just incompetent? Elsewhere, Tom doesn’t know if it’s worth cautioning his son about driving cross country in a pickup truck, if all he’ll get in return in the "stunad stare".

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Beryl won custody of her husband’s old Mercedes in their divorce. She loves the car, but may be moving from Texas to the Great Frozen North and isn’t wild about driving it in the snow. Should she dump it, put money into making it safer, or follow Tom and Ray’s Plan C? Elsewhere, Tony’s Chevy may have tried to kill his mother-in-law with brakes that didn’t brake; Ginny and her husband are arguing over the best way to avoid croaking frogs on the road; and Ellen’s mechanic says her oil has the smell of engine death.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Jake's car is growing hair on top and to make things worse, it clashes with the car's color. Did someone slip Rogaine into Jake's gas and does he need a paint job or a cream rinse to deal with it? 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, our all-time favorite neurological oddity: a Massachusetts man begins speaking with a French accent following an accident. Could a whack to the noggin make Tom and Ray speak like actual mechanics? Also, three tales of things that aren’t where they’re supposed to be. John’s dipstick keeps popping out, Crystie dropped a nail into her gas tank, and Dana’s friend has a piece of the Berlin Wall lodged in his dad’s BMW’s trunk.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Jeff’s Isuzu Trooper needs a new engine, but he’s worried that a transplant will change his car’s very identity. Does a car have a soul, and does Jeff need a mechanic or an exorcist? Elsewhere, Helena and her husband found a dream used car with one idiosyncrasy—it only goes in reverse. Good thing it came with a spare transmission in the trunk.

    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 The Best of Car Talk, Tom’s Pathfinder needs new shocks, and given that he’s about to embark on a road trip with his mom, girlfriend, and dog, he’d better buy the right ones. Elsewhere, Alan’s undercover surveillance work has been a bit compromised by his over-active windshield wipers. Also Carolyn’s husband insists on treating their automatic transmission as if it's a stick shift; a ton of clay may have been too much for Charlie’s Explorer to carry; and Bill tried to use his daughter’s tights to replace a broken serpentine belt, but they flew apart. Were they the wrong size?

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray venture far afield as they consider one listener's idea that could revolutionize elevator operations (within the confines of still going up and down) - if anyone can make heads or tails of it. Later, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if our hosts helped Jeff's bread maker resume making loaves instead of hockey pucks. To mollify NPR, we'll also wrestle with a few car questions.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Elizabeth's Audi is going through an alternator a month. Is the problem inside her car, or are they being built by the wrong group of Tibetan monks? Elsewhere, Aron's Nissan is channeling the Three Stooges; Kristin learned there's no such thing as a free brake inspection; Ann's about to learn why she should never listen to her father - or her kids' father - when it comes to cars; and Patti settles Tom and Ray's great Sleek Black Beauty bet with news on her mom's attempt to drive a Datsun from Texas to Massachusetts.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, between Being and Nothingness is—a loose heat shield? One listener suggests Tom and Ray's baffling car advice is actually the dawning of a new line of deep philosophical thought. 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.

    Everyone knows a joke is less funny if you have to explain it. But if the joke wasn't funny in the first place, it's not really a problem. So, this week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray explain the origin of one of their favorites, a "full Chicago." In matters automotive, Caroline is concerned about her Toyota's low idle and her husband's insistence they wear bicycle helmets in the car for safety.

    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.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, why did Bob's mild-mannered dog go wacko when Bob dumped his Mercedes and bought an Audi? Is the pooch status-obsessed, or is there an olfactory explanation? Elsewhere, Ellen's Camry smells like rotten eggs, and she thinks her dealer is blowing sulphur up her skirt, rather than fixing it.
