Who's the real "High Voltage" at Car Talk Plaza?

Hey, Carly “High Voltage” Nix here.  Ever wondered what I did to deserve that moniker? 


Ray named me that when we first met, because he says my hair makes me look like I just stuck my finger in a light socket.  (Pictured at left: a "High Voltage" high record!)

As it so happens, I’m not the only one at the office with an unruly hair situation.  Conversations at Car Talk Plaza sometimes go like this: 

Tom:  "Hey, have you combed your hair in the past month?"
HV:  "No, have you?"
Tom:  "Of course not!"

So what do you think?  Is Tom giving me a run for my money or what?
