On this week's encore edition of Car Talk: ever wonder about Tom and Ray's lives outside the garage? No, we didn't think so either, but nonetheless, a few listeners apparently have some nagging questions. So, this week, the guys answer a few highly personal questions posed by actual listeners. Did they have problems finding dates in high school? What's the worst trouble they ever got into? And, this existential quandary: why the heck don't they look like they sound? (Note: could this be a good thing?)
Lest the gearheads among us fret, we've also got plenty of actual car advice - in our Call of the Week, Ace from Florida's got a touch of fire bursting out in his F-150. Meanwhile, could Kevin's T-Bird possibly be making him stupid? Is he just listening to too much Car Talk, or might he be inhaling a little too much carbon monoxide? And, meet Corinne, whose Sentra is going through dipsticks faster than Tommy goes through wives. All this and lots more on this week's Car Talk.
