    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.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray invoke the teachings of Daniel Pinkwater to convince Mary Ann that a really dumb car decision could improve every other aspect of her life. Alas, the Pinkwater philosophy won't help Paul, who is learning an expensive lesson about what happens when you don't test drive an old van before buying.

    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, 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.

    Jim replaced a torn CV joint on one side of his Subaru and then decided to replace the other side, just so it wouldn't feel left out. Now, Jim's car is "undulating" on the highway. 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.

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?

Also, Connie needs help choosing the right car for her road trip to Rio de Janeiro; Daniel needs to stop replacing distributor caps, and replace his mechanic, if he wants to find out why his Sentra stops running.

    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.

    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, Brenda's shoulder belt got stuck in her jacket zipper effectively trapping her in her car. Embarrassing? Sure, but not as embarrassing as Tom and Ray's friend who tried to drive her car from the back seat. Elsewhere, Ben's band wants to take his vintage Volvo on tour from Seattle, and wants to know if he can book any shows beyond, say, Tacoma. Also, Albee wants to sell a sputtering and stalling LeBaron to his mother-in-law, which is probably one way to guarantee she never visits; Judy swears her Olds is making noise.

    Dana's Jetta jerks in 1st Gear, and Tom and Ray have a highly technical explanation. Elsewhere, Mark thinks his "straighten the curves" driving technique is more efficient and saves wear and tear. It's also driving his wife crazy, which may be another plus as far as Mark is concerned. Also, Suzy checks in with the final report on her attempted drive across Mexico in a VW Vanagon; Andy felt like he was driving naked and after confirming he was wearing pants, determined his automatic seat belt wasn't so automatic anymore.

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rick has lots of reasons to justify adding a supercharger to his Miata. Unfortunately, they’re all harebrained.

Speaking of harebrained, Cheryl’s brother is driving around with a rotted gas tank, and the fuel lines re-routed to a tank in his trunk. Also, Tamara’s family needs help saying goodbye to their beloved Vanagon; Mike may be facing a winter without power steering; and Melissa’s husband is about to learn what happens when you cheap out on snow tires.

    This week Tom gets the rare opportunity to fail Physics a third time as he and Ray try to help Kathy "help" her son design his Pinewood Derby race car. Elsewhere, Bridget's car is making a whisking sound that's only a little less scary than Tom and Ray's attempts to mimic it; Pam's Volvo is smoking more than her husband and arousing the ire of the Amherst, VA police department; and Johnny's attempt to fix his Jeep may require him to avoid wearing rayon pants. Also, new research that demonstrates the male brain's oscillation between pure genius, and pure incompetence.
