Original Air Date: 07.19.2008

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, it's the infamous story of Max and the dead schnauzer. Talk about above and beyond mechanic service. Meanwhile, can Amy convince her husband that she should drive the car? Fake illness of course! Nothing like a bad case of the pukes to put her behind the drivers seat. And Ray shares his tales of weatherproofing his butt. All that on this week's barking good hour of Car Talk.

Naming the Schnauzer

by Ruisseau

Fantastic story by Max -- personally, I like the name LUCKY!! :D And hey, maybe the good Lord MEANT for Max to have a dog.... Should he really be giving it away? And if he does, is he going to ask for $275?? Candy Cane

Favorite Moment: Finding the dog, all for legs in the air... ha ha !!
