#0750: Don't Call Us, Call the Vatican!

Original Air Date: 12.15.2007

   Best Moment

Remember the song, "I don't care if it rains or freezes, as long as I've got my plastic Jesus, riding on the dashboard of my car"? Well, the dashboard's fine - but what do you do when Jesus seems to have taken up residence in your rear windshield? That's Kristy's dilemma, and she's this week's Call of the Week. Later, a Mitsubishi Eclipse gets all hot and bothered at Burger King, Trina from Illinois accidentally increases the value of her Corolla, and a husband and wife fight over the fastest way to get the "guys shoveling the coal" to heat their car. Ready for the puzzler that will not die? Ray 'fesses up to even more plural noun car model names. All this, a new puzzler, and Stump the Chumps, this week on Car Talk.
