#2011: Attack of the Black Widows

Mar 14, 2020
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Heather recovered her stolen Civic, but found a family of black widow spiders had taken up residence. She killed the mother with a shovel, but how can she evict the rest of the clan? Elsewhere, Howard ran out of brake fluid during a long drive and is wondering if he could have used his bottle of tequila to fill in; Timothy is wondering if it’s time to cut his losses on the Maserati that has him on a first-name basis with AAA; and could Tanya's loss of reverse lead to the Superball bumper? All this, plus the unfortunate tale of Tommy meeting Princess the pooch, the most polite hate message in the history of email, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
