   Best Moment

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.

    THE DOG THAT SCARED THE STUFFING OUT OF MAX

    by mrprintman

    VERY VERY FUNNY, I'D SAY HYSTERICAL. IF I COULD SPELL IT. I'D BUY A CAR FROM MAX ANYTIME.

    Favorite Moment: MAX WAS THE BEST

    You guys were taken!

    I first heard a "true" story about replacing a dead dog with a live one -- except the dog had been traveling in the hold of an airliner -- maybe years ago. I'm surprised you guys believed Max and gave it so much airtime!

    Favorite Moment: Knowing from almost the very beginning that the story was a fake.
