    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, 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.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, how can Doug diplomatically tell his wife she's a slob when it comes to cars, and should his new car be a stick shift, so she can't drive it? Ray's telling of his wife's turn from neatness to the dark side provides a cautionary tale. Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Richard resorted to shock therapy to get his pet goats to stop climbing on his cars, and if Richard's girlfriend Doris started speaking to him again. And, why did Paul go to a cobbler instead of a body shop when his gas pedal fell through the floor of his Datsun?

    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.

    This week on Car Talk, pothole season is in full swing. After her Toyota was almost swallowed by one crater, Sara's wondering what happens to the departed asphalt. Elsewhere, Steve drove over a bowling ball outside a topless bar, which sounds like a great joke set-up, but the punch line could be very expensive. Also, Shanthi is ready to buy a car, but has no place to park it. Does she need to move, or should she forget about the car and keep mooching rides from her friends? And, how can Johanna make sure her summer of teepee living doesn't start with her car getting washed away by spring flooding? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, one listener corrects the record on what NPR’s Sylvia Poggioli really says when Tom and Ray besmirch her network by their very presence. You may share Sylvia’s horror when you hear our hosts struggle to figure out why Patty’s MG will only travel 2 feet at a time.

    This week's Car Talk features a bonus return appearance by Tara, formerly of California. When we last heard from her, Tara was embarking on a cross-country move with her van-dwelling boyfriend, Curtis. Apparently, the trip went well – very well – because she and Curtis now need help choosing a name for their upcoming offspring.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, can Adrienne use her Saab to deliver hundreds of pounds of rocks for her husband's birthday, or does Adrienne have rocks in her head? Elsewhere, Sarah's Taurus smells like waffles and maple syrup, so unless she spilled any IHOP leftovers down the vents, she may be shopping for a new engine or a new car. Also, Tracy and her dog both need help convincing her husband to use his brakes and abandon his "conservation of memomentum" theory.

    This week on "The Best of Car Talk", unearthed letters from summer camp prove that the child really is father to the man, at least when it comes to our Technical, Spiritual and Menu Advisor, John "Bugsy" Lawlor. Elsewhere, Lee liberated herself from her mechanic by changing her own oil, but also got liberated from her cash when she poured the oil into her transmission; Cameron needs a lesson in how to burn rubber; and Carly becomes the poster child for Repair Avoidance Syndrome by not getting her shaking Civic looked at.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, we kick off with a proposal that could revolutionize snow measurement, if it wasn't completely bogus. Later, the bogosity continues as Tom and Ray try to explain why Anne's dashboard gauges all stopped working after she filled up her gas tank at a Shell station—twice! Also, Kay's 38 year old daughter left mom's Explorer running all night, and Kay's wondering if she needs to blow out the car's engine or the cobwebs in her daughter's brain.

    This week on the Best of Car Talk, one listener postulates that a non-essential repair on an old car creates a parallel universe where everything else starts to break. Sorry, but for proof, you may have to tune to the Sci-Fi Channel. Elsewhere in the land of semi-wacko theories, Mark was told he could use rice to clean a carburetor, and Joyce's boyfriend insists on leaving his Taurus' trunk open overnight to keep it dry.

    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.

    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. No problem is too ridiculous, no solution too absurd, and before you know it, "you've wasted another perfectly good hour listening to Car Talk". Or, in this case, four.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Andy loves waxing his car, but his friends tell him he’s wasting his time. Has paint technology made waxing passé, save for the mental health benefits? Elsewhere, Diane thinks her husband’s claim that BMWs have a unique aroma is a bogus attempt to justify his mid-life crisis; Melissa traded her car to her ex-husband for a rifle and a skiff, but he thinks he got ripped off; and Ed’s solution to a sticky shifter may give his insurance company an ulcer.
