#1543: Gabe's Drums

October 24th, 2015

Episode 55 of 144 episodes

This week on the Best of Car Talk, jazz drummer Gabe is tired of schlepping his kit from gig to gig on the New York subway. Is the solution one new car, or six new drum kits? Elsewhere, Sharon's friends at the retirement community are getting a little over-stimulated by her Taurus' lurid groan; Cathy and David are arguing over whether it's better to drive down Mount Washington with a screaming transmission or burning brakes; Max has a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a free Mustang—that's been sitting underwater for the last 7 years; and can Sarah's Saturn haul her belongings from Illinois to Arizona without dying in Nebraska? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
