#1825: Male Moron Syndrome
This week on The Best of Car Talk, genetics suggest that men inherit intelligence from their mothers, which as Tom and Ray postulate, leaves one likely source for the "Hey guys, watch this!" gene. And to prove that point, Josh in Montana is testing the theory by trying to find the source of his truck's rattling noise by examining the under carriage—while the truck is moving. Also, Sara can't figure out how her pet chicken survived a ride under the hood of her Tahoe; John the mechanic needs to know the labor rate for evil ex-girlfriends; Cathy's Sentra is sending her to the poor house; and on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Michael fixed his father-on-law's Town Car and inherited it in the process. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
#1824: We Will Bury You
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Eric may need to channel the late Nikita Khrushchev if he wants air conditioning this summer. Meanwhile, Tama may need to clear out the Old Spice aisle to get the stink out of her Jeep so she can sell it. Also, Steve can remove his Omni's key while the car is still in drive which is pretty cool, except for that time the car ran over him; Teri's Accord is making noise in a place where there's nothing that can make noise; and Jordan's Taurus introduces a new Car Talk motto, "They don't care what we say, and we don't care what they do." All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
