    Do Not Listen While Driving

    by elf21379

    This has got to be the most hilarious Car Talk I have ever heard. I seriously suggest NOT listening to this while driving - I nearly ran off the road.

    Favorite Moment: The dispersion theory conversation, of course.

    Making Amends with the Car Gods

    This driver must be cursed.  Was that stranded motorist she blew past... actually Zeus in disguise?
