#0501: Mosquitoes One, Humans Zero

Original Air Date: 01.01.2005

   Best Moment

In this week's encore show, we kick off the year with a few winter's tales. First, an Arctic mosquito runs Kathleen and her hubby off the road, and they find out the hard way that it's a long way to Skagway. Then, Laura's dad gets an icy reception with his air conditioner. Tim's building a giant cartoon car and he wants tips on how to make musical wipers. Seriously. Plus, find out why Brian's Range Rover needs ten gallons of gas (and we're not talking in the tank)! And why is Matt freezing his cojones off in Anchorage? Duh! That and more in this week's chilling hour of Car Talk.
