Well, one rust bucket, anyway ... the 17-year-old Honda of our Emeritus Associate Producer Louie Cronin, a.k.a., "Cronin the Barbarian."

Having recently taken possession of a very spiffy, little Mazda 3, Louie was looking for an easy way to clear out her driveway. Fire came to mind. But the authorities frown upon such incidents. Not that we'd know anything about that, mind you.

So, Louie donated her car to our very own Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program. And we decided to tail her jalopy, right up to the bitter end.

What happens to the thousands of cars that Car Talk collects each year? Join Louie's Honda for its final road trip, and find out!
