Description: 
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.

    by Ruisseau

    If argee isn't "man/woman" enough to share fresh input in each and every review, he/she should be banned... Come on, argee, get with the program! Come to the party -- you might find yourself having some fun...

    love the accent

    when this aired, i was able to hear the whole show, but i sat in the car til max was done. what a great story and telling of it even if it might not be true. hans might have been too much, but the rest was entertaining and worth the air time.

    Favorite Moment: at the end thinking wow that poor guy or thinking, what a way to get rid of a puppy. still good story telling.
