    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.

    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.

Is Jim's good deed going punished? Elsewhere, Carla can't figure out which of her brothers she shouldn't drive like, when it comes to shifting; Ainsley's bumper is being held on with epoxy and her husband won't let her take it through the car wash, fearing the bumper will be left behind; UPS driver Steve wonders why his colleagues all get new trucks and he's still driving a beater.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, it's one of our all-time classic calls, and the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories—Max the mechanic's heroic attempt to replace his customer's beloved pet dog. Elsewhere, Major Tom's Jeep is acclimating to its new home in Colorado by doing 360's on ice; Toast’s battery drains in the rain, even if the car isn't running; and Louann's Civic is fouling plugs, and her mood. Also, can Natalie welcome dad home from vacation by saying anything other than, "I dented your car?" All this, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, we answer the question that has been keeping America awake for weeks—did Max the mechanic find a home for his namesake schnauzer? Elsewhere, Bob swears that smashing his Volvo into a rock improved its performance; Rick's girlfriend's VW spent the weekend in the shop and came back with an additional 20,000 miles on the odometer; and Lisa's Estonian Moskvitch dies, and will only re-start if she jams a piece of wood into the ignition. Also, Tom and Ray try to referee a family dispute over a board game and manage to turn Brain Quest into Dummy Quest. All this, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

    This week Greg was surprised when his truck started running poorly, until he learned that his four-year-old son had washed the inside of the gas tank with soap. Should Greg stick his kid with the repair bill? Judy can't decide if her son-in-law is brilliant or wacko for raising the hood of his Volvo after every drive; Gil's Camry may be leaving a trail of clutch fluid from Houston to Phoenix; Debra's knocking is nothing compared to the sound of two hosts banging their heads together trying to figure out what's causing it.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ed is building an airplane in his garage. It's not a model plane; Ed actually intends to fly in it. If you need more evidence that Ed has questionable judgment, he's asking Tom and Ray for advice on choosing an engine. Elsewhere, Cindy suffered CO poisoning, accidentally drove 70 mph in 3rd gear, and killed her engine. Subaru replaced it under warranty, but Cindy is feeling guilty about not giving them full disclosure.

    The Hatchback of Notre Dame includes many memorable Car Talk classics, including Morley Safer of CBS' Sixty Minutes displaying a downright embarrassing obsession with his Peugeot and space shuttle astronaut John Grunsfeld, who calls from Hawaii. (Well, 700 miles over Hawaii, actually). And there's one of Click and Clack's all-time favorite callers - their pal, Dave from Bemidji - sharing the sordid tale of his journey to Alaska.

    On this week's Car Talk, brace yourself for a show opening that truly brings the expression "too much information" to Car Talk, as Ray shares an intimate exercise anecdote. Any story that ends with his wife on the floor in laughter, has got to be worth hearing. Then it's on to North Carolina, where Rachel's convinced her mechanic's recommended engine flush is really just a wallet flush.

    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?

    The hands-down highlight of many a Car Talk episode, Daniel Pinkwater is responsible for some of the all-time greatest moments of the program's storied history on public radio. 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.
