#1041: Pre-Disastered Truck for Sale

Original Air Date: 10.09.2010

   Best Moment

This week on Car Talk, Ethan in Montana is readying his Chevy Blazer for sale. Should he divulge the fact that it was struck by a bolt of lightning? And, could a disclosure actually be to his financial benefit? Meanwhile, Annalise in New York is trying to get one more school year out of her '84 Prelude, but its carburetor isn't cooperating. Also, the mystery of the self-starting Chevy Suburban; how many red light infractions and near miss accidents does it take to qualify a driver as a "stinko" driver; and the true difference between Harvard and MIT students. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
