#1639: Fell Off Truck

Sep 24, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Matt’s bad day got a little worse when his Volvo fell off the tow truck that was hauling it from an accident. Will Tom and Ray’s vast experience dropping cars help Matt figure out if his is still safe to drive? Elsewhere, should Jackie go braless when washing her car? We’re talking about the car’s bra here, not Jackie’s. Also, Peter thinks he has a theremin player living in his car; Barb’s smart-aleck son may actually be smarter than she thinks; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Victoria bought cars for her three sons and opted for a career in flower arranging over business school. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
