This week on The Best of Car Talk, how do Tom and Ray celebrate Valentine’s day? With gifts likely to earn them each a few nights sleeping in the garage! But, in classic, “those who can’t do” fashion, they’re happy to give college student Zoey tips for meeting the cute guy working in her dorm. In matters more technical (yet still wacko!), Ed needs help choosing an engine for the Miata-sized airplane he’s building in his garage; and, Mary just bought a vintage Ford Galaxy sight unseen, and now she's scouting the area rest homes for a mechanic to work on it. Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if “Fred” ever confessed to his wife that he hates the Saab she bought him as a surprise gift. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
