#0730: Help! My Life's Down the Tubes
What's a guy to do when his girl is gone and his career is down the toilet? Call Tom and Ray, of course! This week on Car Talk, Steve in Chicago is looking to solve a parking lot mystery that left his car un-towable. Then it's off to California where Heather is scratching her head over a $3,000 glove box repair and a shifty mechanic named Helmut. And just when you think things couldn't get any weirder, meet Dave from Bemidji who manages to fix his Chevy with a piece of a BBQ grill. It's a smoking episode of Car Talk.
