This week on Car Talk, Nancy in DC seems ready to consummate her long-standing crush on a Beetle convertible. She's also preparing to move to New Hampshire, and is worried that a few feet of snow will turn her rag-top into a non-top.
Meanwhile, in Montauk, New York, Nick has been promised a shiny new BMW by his wife--as soon as his '95 Jeep takes its last breath. The Jeep is running well, so Nick's looking for subtle ways he can nudge it towards the crusher. Also, an Aerostar imitates Chewbacca, a Lincoln channels Niagara Falls, and Tommy takes on the role of "Henny Magliozzi". All this, plus another tale of a misdirected birthday cake and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
