   Best Moment 1:38

This week on Car Talk, Amy's head is spinning because her speedometer needle won't stop whizzing around in circles.Is a well-aimed rock her only hope of making it stop? Elsewhere, Suzanne's husband loves his vintage Ford Model A, but its gas fumes are destroying brain cells by the thousands. Also, Deanna's car battery tops New York City's "Must Steal" list; Romeo's muscle car lost its muscle after a day of peeling out; and Allen's Volvo and TV are both turning themselves on at random times. Is it bad wiring, or a bad neighbor? All this, and more, this week on Car Talk.
