#0515: Ugly Is In the Eye of the Beholder

Original Air Date: 04.09.2005

   Best Moment

This week, the nominations for our not-so-coveted Ugliest Car Award! Plus, Josh’s BMW seems to have an over-efficient cooling system. Beemer on ice anyone? Shelagh needs the perfect tool to knock the frost out of her wheel wells. Will her ex-boyfriend do? And find out why you should think twice about buying a rental car - at least if Ray ever drove it. That and much more in this hour of Car Talk.
