    This week on Car Talk, Eric in Arizona is finding 100 dollar bills under the seats in his recently purchased '06 Lexus. Is it a unique rebate program? Evidence of nefarious doings by the previous owner? Meanwhile, Lori in New York City went to a TV show taping and left as the reluctant owner of a brand new GMC Denali. Is there a hassle-free way she can get rid of it, aside from handing the keys to Tom and Ray?

    This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ray recounts a dark day in Massachusetts history—when the powers that be decided his 16-year-old son was worthy of a driver's license. Elsewhere, it's planting season on Diane's parents' farm and they'd like her husband to remove the BMW with a blown engine residing there. Also, Nirav's Wrangler's horn blared at 5 AM and now won't honk at all. Might the angry neighbor with a sledge hammer and wire cutters be responsible?

    This week Car Talk kicks off with one listener's brilliant (and only sorta wacko) theory: a non-essential repair on an old car creates a parallel universe in which everything else starts to break. Then it's off to New Mexico, where Nolina has two choices for dealing with a disintegrating head gasket: a $2500 engine re-build, or a $10 can of Bar's Leaks. Any bets on which side Tom and Ray come down on?

Elsewhere, Alex may need help finding closure over his beloved pickup, while Christine can’t decide whether to accept her parents’ offer of their Buick station wagon.

    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 The Best of Car Talk, Heidi's car is making a scary noise and having trouble steering – and worse, she can't find a mechanic who will take her seriously. Maybe because the car is an '87 Peugeot? Meanwhile, Allen's earning his spot on mechanics' and TV techs' Top 10 Wacko Customer list with a Volvo that's starting itself and a TV that's turning itself on. Also, can Sharon ignore her husband and put a wreath on her Tahoe without voiding the Excess Pine Needle Intake clause of her warranty?

Elsewhere, Suzanne is concerned about the gas fumes emanating from the "other woman" in her husband's life, his Ford Model A, named Tootsie.

    Paging Chief Counsel Hugh Louis Dewey! Rachel got into a fender bender because she was distracted by laughing at Car Talk. Are Tom and Ray liable? Elsewhere, Tom got a Caprice Wagon in exchange for a set of teeth he made, but the car’s knocking sound is making him wonder if he should have only provided molars. Also, Abbie got some dodgy, and perhaps life-threatening advice on how to check her car’s alignment; Dee can’t accept a life without heated seats; and Phil is wondering if his wife really would be happier if she married a mechanic.

    Fresh out of the Dewey, Cheetham, and Howe audio dumpster, our Second Best of Car Talk features some of the least-lousy calls we've ever aired! Seriously, we've had some pretty darned wacko calls, from "Clinton Sends Vowels to Bosnia" to "Gail, the Toll-gate Fugitive", and, our personal favorite, the tale of our German pal Max and his little Schnauzer.
