#1551: The Chevy in the Lake

Dec 19, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Bill’s truck rolled into a lake. There's one cable keeping it from sinking to the bottom. Should Bill call Jacques Cousteau for a rescue, or cut the cable? Elsewhere, Victoria is looking for a quartet of $2,000 cars for her sons; Jenny’s newlywed husband lost 15 pounds, and his now-oversized wedding ring is missing in their Jeep’s dashboard; and, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if David’s car-induced cough is cured, and if his brain cells are still intact. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
