On this week's encore edition of Car Talk, are Tom and Ray nothing more than a pair of dummies? Before you say, "Duh!", we're talking about ventriloquist dummies. Tune in, as one listener makes his case.
Meanwhile, in matters automotive, Sue in Pennsylvania is wondering whether surgery will enable her husband to fit into their hand-me-down Dodge Shadow-- only, we're not sure if it's surgery on the car, or her husband; Jann in Little Rock is looking for a new ride that won't make her dog carsick and needs a way to sneak Fido in for a test-drive; and Jeff in Lincoln, Nebraska's looking for a graceful exit from his promise to become a licensed driver. All this, plus the lowdown on the first (and last) Mechanics' Fantasy Camp, and more, this week on Car Talk.
