This week on Car Talk, it's a sound you're well familiar with, if you've listened to our lousy show for more than, say, 10 minutes. It's Ray's snort-- and it's become a source of controversy. Is it an organic laugh extension, or are we guilty of adding a Snort Track? We'll find out, maybe.
Meanwhile, on the auto front, laughter may be the best medicine for Bob in Queens, whose Geo decides not to start when the thermometer hits freezing. Also, a wedding band goes AWOL behind the dashboard, a Doctor's Lincoln begins to remind him of his mother, and why new tires can be shocking--literally. All this, a new puzzler from the David and Goliath series, and a Bostonian even feistier than Tommy, this week on Car Talk.
