#1416: I Dream of Fairlanes

Apr 17, 2014
This week on Car Talk, the Auto-Psychiatry booth is open, as Dennis tries to figure out why he dreamed about being offered a 1966 Ford Fairlane. Is a Fairlane memory buried in his past, or to paraphrase Dr. Freud, is a heap just a heap? Meanwhile, over in the Auto-Relational Department, Donna treated herself to a spiffy Mazda Miata, but can't get her husband to relinquish the steering wheel. Also, Tamson's mechanic may be using the "slow milking" approach to diagnosing her Beetle's noise; Ray has a few final words on Tommy's Dart; and does Dave need driving lessons or relaxation therapy to prepare for a Summer trip through Ireland with five women? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
