   Best Moment

Description: 
On this week's Car Talk, Tom and Ray help Jason keep Army vehicles on the road - after they're loaded down with a couple of extra tons of heavy metal. Caitlin and her pals head off to a contra dance... but wind up with a $3,000 tab. Is her mechanic trying to steal the clogs off her feet? Ray poses a 100,000 mile puzzler, and Tom shares a cautionary tale for shade tree mechanics who ply their trade in mall parking lots.  This and much more, on this week's Car Talk.
