#1652: Ode to a Monte Carlo

Dec 24, 2016
This week on The Best of Car Talk, we thought nobody could be more devoted to an old heap than Tommy, but then we met Lita who has written a poem about her Monte Carlo—we’re just relieved she didn’t try to rhyme anything with “rust bucket.” Elsewhere, Steve moved to Chicago for a job and a girlfriend. He lost both, but he’s most confused about why his Acura was the only car not towed from a party. Also, the holiday season brings good cheer and the annual squeak to Betsy’s Town and Country; Kate’s temporary fix for her frozen door locks is hilarious, and incredibly dangerous; and, did the hottest man in show business set Melinda’s radio on fire? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
