This week on Car Talk, a rebellion in the Magliozzi family, as Ray's wife uses one candy wrapper to free herself from the shackles of a neat car. The tale is part of the guys' attempts to answer whether a neat freak and a slob can share a car, and still speak to each other. Meanwhile, relocated airline pilot Brigitte is looking for cheap real estate--specifically, a VW Westfalia, with the address, "Airport Employee Parking Lot." Also, if your dad's a mechanic but won't fix your Crown Vic's heating problem, does it mean he doesn't love you? And on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Scott got his Nissan to start, and survived Fat Tony and his big bucket o' tools. All this and lots more this week on Car Talk.
