#1447: The 3-Speed Potter's Wheel

November 22nd, 2014

Episode 7 of 112 episodes

This week on Car Talk, can Jim use an old car transmission as a potter’s wheel? Reverse could come in handy next time he mis-throws a pot. Elsewhere, Cindy’s friends say her Mercedes is scaring off prospective dates with guys whose cars aren’t as nice as hers; grad student Christine’s parents offered her a free Buick station wagon, but Christine can’t decide if the embarrassment of driving it is too costly; and we meet Tom and Ray’s new BFF—Sal, the quintessential New Yorker. Sal is a retired mailman, but he may still have to get up at the crack of dawn this winter if he wants his car to move. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
