This week's Car Talk, a family learns that "Haste Makes Fire" after a roadside repair of their Winnebago winds up landing them on Smoky the Bear's Most Wanted list. It's the latest installment in our series of auto-confessionals. Then it's off to Indiana, where Linda has put her Junior High class on hold so she can find out why her Accord is fishtailing. Is her problem serious enough to get Tom and Ray to stop touting the values of an 8th Grade education long enough to offer a diagnosis? Also, what advice do our hosts have for prospective parents of twins who'd rather "drive a horse and buggy than a minivan"? Well, it starts with, "Saddle up!" All this plus a quick lesson in the virtues of the delayed dope slap, and lots more, this week, on Car Talk
