#0841: 3 AM, a Wrench, and a Stickball Game? Problem Solved!

Original Air Date: 10.11.2008

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, parking-starved Tracy wants to know how to rid her Staten Island neighborhood of an unwanted guest: a Nissan someone deposited on her street a few months ago. The cops can't tow it unless "something" happens to it. And who better to think of "something" than Tom and Ray? Also this week, further evidence that love makes us all a little stupid, as a dedicated '94 Subaru owner tries to replace its leaky gas tank by cutting through the floorboards, an MG-groupie tries to convince his wife that his '66 TRD is is a "perfectly safe" family car, and a woman's instant crush on a Town and Country leaves them in stitches at the liquor store. All this, the puzzler returns to its roots in Horsetown, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
