#0635: Tom, Ray...And A Few Haiku?!

Original Air Date: 09.02.2006

   Best Moment

On this week’s encore presentation, can Sam stop his “handy” father from taking his mother’s new car apart? And is it cruel to shatter the old guy’s dream of spending his retirement elbow-deep in grease? Meanwhile, Lear wants to know just how terrible it is to do rolling stops in second gear in his Toyota Echo. Plus, Steve’s side mirror has a twitch and Sheri’s shifter wants to be jiggled. Tommy is steamed about people who pass on the right, and we bring an ancient and highly refined form of poetry to its knees … yes, it’s time for automotive haikus! All this and more, on this week’s show.
