#0622: Tom, Ray...and Lawrence Welk?!

Original Air Date: 06.03.2006

   Best Moment

This week, you’ll swear one of our callers is the Prince of Polka himself! Jennifer’s losing her faith in the benefits of a Benz, and Ray unveils a brilliant little theory about the Mercedes parts pricing conspiracy. And here’s another one from the Car Talk Product Patent Office: cat repellent for car roofs! Plus, a random sample from our weird letter office. All that, other daring callers, and maybe a little something from the bubble machine, in this week's Car Talk.

This Week's Puzzler

I saw something the other day that I haven’t seen in 10 years, only saw four or five times before, and probably won’t see again, and neither will our son. What happened that day? Find out!

Last Week's Puzzler

At 60 MPH, name a part or parts of the car that are not moving in relation to the road – and what part of the car is traveling at 120 mph?
