#1225: Do One To Others

Who knows what kids are thinking!

Original Air Date: 06.23.2012

   Best Moment 1:29

This week on Car Talk, kids give the "Golden Rule" and a few other maxims an innocent (yet funny) twist. Then it's off to Arizona where Lily's Taurus is making a noise that she hopes will lead her husband to make another noise-- namely, "Let's buy you a new Mustang." But all is not well in Mustang-land for Martin--his is emitting blue smoke, so his wallet may be emitting a large boat payment. Meanwhile, out in Washington, Amanda's marriage is only a few days away, but if she and her fiance can't figure out what to do with their four cars, the divorce may not be far behind. Also, a hand-me-down Accord develops a distaste for Reverse; a DIY CV joint replacement turns into a demolition project; and, can a few strategically placed magnets prolong Peter's engine life? All this and lots more, this week, on Car Talk.

Minor nitpick

by jiminnyc

The first caller, if she was named after the 1930s actress, spells her name Lilli, not Lily. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0658339/

Favorite Moment: The whole show, of course!!!!!

Only God Knows...

Kids share a few biblical maxims... and get them more than a little wrong in the process!
