#2251: Driveway Diplomacy
Chip lives in a congested suburban area where his next door neighbor is in the habit of warming up his car every day for 20 minutes in the driveway that's right between their two houses. Chip isn't sure whether to approach his neighbor with the 'poisonous fumes' or 'you're wrecking your car' or 'you're wrecking our planet' approach. Will Tom and Ray be able to help Chip deftly navigate this situation, or will they just put a lit match to it? Find out on this episode of the Best of Car Talk.
#2250: He Broke My Nose!
On this episode of the Best of Car Talk more callers with car questions and a story from the Magliozzi family facial-reconstruction files. Ray recalls how his older, wiser brother Tom turned a friendly game of catch in their yard into a trip to the hospital.
#2249: Sixty, Sexy and Single
Ann from Minnesota needs a new car that helps her maintain her self image as 'sixty, sexy and single' without making her look like she's trying to compete with her daughter. '63 Dodge Darts are few and far between, so which of the other available convertibles on the market will suit Ann? Find out on this episode of the Best of Car Talk.
#2248: The Games of Ancient Grease
WBUR management used to make us host a party for our listeners about once a year as a way of apologizing for our lousy show. Having had our fill of Sock Hops and other themed events in previous years, we settled on a carnival-styled occasion and called it, "The Games of Ancient Grease". We rounded up a bunch of old car parts and we invented some games of (little) skill like 'the discus-brake-us toss', 'The MacPherson Strut' and 'Pin the Tail on Tommy's Dodge Dart'. In this episode of the Best of Car Talk we pick the winner of the all-expenses paid trip to our party from the trunk of the Dart.
