   Best Moment

Description: 
In this week’s show: Will one husband's mid-life crisis lead to a Car Talk support group? Regina is looking for a way to put some oomph back in her Subaru’s wimpy horn – does this patient need a transplant? And from our no-brainer files: Kelley’s Buick seems to overheat a lot when he drives around in Death Valley. Plus, Tommy shares the story of a dutiful son who finds a way to help his dad till the potato patch – from prison. That and more in this week’s show.
