#1615: Auto Pyrotechnics

Apr 09, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, low-budget filmmaker Seth wants to blow up a car for his latest project. Is there enough cash in our legal defense fund for Tom and Ray to even consider giving Seth any advice? Elsewhere, late-night TV might be the cure for Sarah’s dented Taurus; a manure overload may have made Art’s truck’s steering &*%^! the bed; and, Stephan is bothered by his truck’s knocking, but even more concerned about his mechanic’s fix for it. Also, should Byron challenge the marital-industrial complex and insist on driving away from his wedding in his pickup truck? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
