Who runs the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program?

This program is a legacy of the public radio show Car Talk. For more than three decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers) answered listeners' questions about cars, and provided laughs, comfort, and trustworthy advice to millions. While Tom passed away in 2014, Ray and the rest of the staff decided to continue this program as a way to give back to the stations that were our friends and partners for decades–and whose programs we listen to every day.

Along with our car donation partners, we're proud to work with your local public radio station and help you turn your car into more of the programs you love. We thank you for the help you are providing to our hard-working stations!

What types of vehicles does WYPR accept?

We all types of running and non-running car donations. Trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, trailers, RVs, boats, and planes are accepted on a case-by-case basis. If you have a question about a vehicle you'd like to donate, give us a call at 1-877-215-0227.

How will my car be picked up?

A local towing agent will call you within two to three business days to schedule a pick up time for your car. Best of all? Your vehicle will be towed for free! We do ask that your car be in a tow accessible location (e.g. street or driveway) and have at least three inflated tires. The tow truck can't get to it if it's in your garage.
