Test Your Auto Aesthetics with Tom, Ray... and Martha Stewart?!


Who's the single most unusual guest you could possibly imagine on Car Talk?

1. Generalissimo Francisco Franco

B. Henry Kissinger

III. Martha Stewart

Obviously, it's Martha. Henry and Francisco have already been on--though, admittedly, Francisco didn't have much to say.

So, it was quite a surprise when we recently found the maven of domestic tranquility seated across from our microphones.

At last, though, we had someone to help us with the auto-aesthetics and dump-truck-decorating calls we've been getting over the years.

In fact, it was quite a good time. (Don't get us wrong. We don't want to have Martha on the show every week. You think it was easy getting the gold lamé stenciling off our Snap On air wrenches?)

Martha did, however, enlighten us with provocative, insightful and downright domestic answers to a number of perplexing conundrums.

Yours in crocheted catalytic converter cozies,
