Original Air Date: 10.07.2006

   Best Moment

In this week's show, Bob shares an MG trick steering wheel that cost him one exceptionally hot date. Jamie, meanwhile has the date... who's got just a little too much gas for their roadtrips. What can she do? Alex ponders tossing the Ford Escort for a nice Cabriolet, and is there a problem with Tex's curious manual transmission? These, a sneaky tire-rotation puzzler, and other calls, on this week's Car Talk.
