#0819: What's the Statute of Limitations on a Burnt Corvette?

Original Air Date: 05.10.2008

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, a restitution offer is received, but is it accepted? No, we still haven't heard from Grammy, but we will find out if Jim is ready to forgive his long-lost high school pal Greg for torching his Corvette 30 years ago. Also this week, a case of SDSU-- Selective Directional Signal Use-- puts one relationship on the blink, a mistake at the pump leads to a penny-wise, planet-foolish discovery, and a Camry owner lands on his neighbors' "Most Hated" list. Is it those Sing Along With The Accordicats CD's he's listening to every night, or the noxious cloud his car emits every morning? All this, plus the Puzzler takes a trip to the Car Talk Luau, Lasagna, and Lambada Extravaganza, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
