Too-Good-To-Be-True Used Car

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. I'd said that the woman got in the car and fiddled with all the controls. She blew the horn, she turned on the heater, ran the wipers. She also turned on the radio.

And when she turned on the radio, she noticed that it was not set to a local station. In fact, there was noise coming across. So she tried another station, and another, and another. And in every case, the presets were set to stations that were not local stations, so this car clearly was from out of town. And if the story were absolutely true that Miss Johnson never left town then how could she have listened to these stations?

TOM: Wow, man!

RAY: So, who's our winner, Tommy?

TOM: How clever! Our winner this week is Andy Parolla from Commawela, Hawaii. Congratulations, Andy!
