We get all kinds of questions here at Car Talk Plaza. Most are about cars. Some are about when we plan to retire so that NPR can replace us with something good on Saturday mornings.

And a few are rather personal.

In the interest of full disclosure, and hoping to publicly embarrass each other, we've decided to answer a few of these personal queries.

Yours in frank answers to the tough questions,

Tom and Ray
Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers

P.S. Got another question for us? Great! Send it along. We'll answer it after we stop laughing - which could be quite some time, actually.

Who's the better cook?

What were your grade point averages at MIT?

Why don't you guys look like you sound?

I know one of you smokes cigars. Do you remove the cigar band before smoking?

For Ray: What's life with Tom like?

Did you have trouble getting dates in high school?

Does either one of you have a tattoo?

What's the worst trouble you've gotten into, as a kid or an adult?
