#1535: The Remote Fart Machine

Aug 29, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray learn first-hand that women do indeed play practical jokes, courtesy of the 21st Century version of the whoopee cushion. The guys are also chastised for not recognizing the value of Art History majors, and neglecting the most important feature in a babe-magnet car. In matters automotive, Matt needs to find a car that can handle his 100,000-mile annual commute, and that will be kind to his tuchus; Marc is wondering if late-night TV could improve his Envoy’s gas mileage; and what does Sirah’s leaking clutch have in common with Ray’s bleeding gums? Find out this week on The Best of Car Talk.
