Love this programme! Used to listen every Saturday morning when I lived in America. Thank goodness for podcasts now that I am back in Europe.

Two MIT educated brothers talk about cars and whatever else comes up in an informative, hilarious way that the whole family can enjoy. One of the best podcasts I've ever heard; I can't recommend it enough.

#1907: A Plane in Every Garage
3232
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ed is building an airplane in his garage. It's not a model plane; it's one Ed actually intends to fly in. 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. Also, Diane needs help convincing her husband to drive his shiny new pickup and stop throwing money at his ancient Chevy Citation; and meet our new superhero, Captain Destructo! All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

#1906: Once Upon a Bird Clock
3202
This week on The Best of Car Talk, is the phrase, "Yes, dear," the key to a happy marriage--even if it's delivered with a smirk? The saga of one of Ray's most annoying purchases helps illustrate. In matters automotive, retired math teacher Angelina can't find a formula to back up her husband's claim that bigger tires will improve their Civic's gas mileage. Also, Tom and Ray are guaranteed to diagnose why Leland's Toyota can't pull a hill, if they can figure out what "pull a hill" means; and Tom seizes on one of his most brilliant/wacko/unencumbered-by-the-thought-process explanations for Kim's overheating engine. All this and more this week on the Best of Car Talk.
