Dear Car Talk:

Because Valentine's Day is coming up, I urge you to remind mechanics everywhere (real mechanics do listen to your show) not to buy their wives or girlfriends presents from the Snap-on truck. I have been married to a mechanic (the same one for 28 years), and while I have received many fine presents (Christmas, birthday, and Valentine's Day) from the Snap-on truck, the selection is limited.

I know your relationship section "Men Are from Ford, etc." isa useful addition to the show. Mechanics everywhere needreminders to keep their relationships from crashing.

Thanks.

Cathe Stark
