This week on Car Talk, Chris' 1959 Belvedere has turned into a greenhouse and Fromagerie, courtesy of some poorly placed birdseed and a kid who thought it would be fun to hide four bricks of blue cheese in the vents. Can he kill the plants and smell without also taking himself out? Elsewhere, Jonathan's wife is blaming his speed-bump strategy for his Civic's alignment problems. His reaction to Tom and Ray's analysis? "I'm a dead man." Also, Jeannie's looking for validation that the guys telling her to use her emergency brake have their heads up their keisters; and Amy wants to give her husband a dope slap for fixing their Maxima's rack and pinion with nothing but a hammer. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
