September 12th, 2015

Episode 49 of 144 episodes

"Monsieur, your car! It ees burnt to a creesp!" This week on The Best of Car Talk, one of our all-time favorite Magliozzi pranks. The cast includes Ray, a concierge named Henri, and a Ford LTD that has been, shall we say, carboniser. Elsewhere, Unitarian minister Carol finds herself tempted by the earthly pleasures of a Jetta; eternal grad student Erica hopes her Toyota's noise is serious enough to convince Dad to buy her a new car; Jodi's Cavalier may be too far down the path to Heapdom, New Jersey, to save; and if you keep taking a car apart and putting it back together, will you eventually wind up with two? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
