#1622: Goodbye, My Coney Island Baby

May 28, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Tom and Ray fulfill one listener’s dream, while creating nightmares for everyone else, with a one-time only performance of the barbershop classic “Goodbye, My Coney Island Baby.” Assuming the FCC lets us get through the rest of the show, Mary wants to sell her Accord, but it needs $500 of repairs. Should she get it fixed, divulge the problems to a potential buyer, or say nothing? And, how crazy is she for thinking she’ll get a good answer from two mechanics? Also, can Steph’s Subaru haul her sailboat and wine collection 1300 miles without dying, and more importantly, without ruining the wine? And, is Caroline’s poor clutch technique destroying her relationships? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
