Description: 
This week on Car Talk, we celebrate Road Hog Day! Will Tommy's car cast a shadow, or can we look forward to an early Spring? Then we're off to Maine, where Shlomit's husband likes to drive with two feet. Does the fact that he's a good dancer make it okay? Also, Alok learned an expensive lesson about the dangers of playing "Hey guys, watch this," with his Mustang's clutch; Stephen's minivan doors are frozen shut, in part because his wife's chickens are occupying his garage; and on Stump the Chumps we find out if Tracy "helped" the abandoned car on her street lose its license plates, so it would get towed. All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
