Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four all-time favorite episodes from the popular radio show--complete, unexpurgated, and hilarious.

Click and Clack may be America's most trusted car repair experts. They are certainly the funniest, as millions of listeners who tune in each week to Car Talk can attest. As each show unfolds, it develops its own zany feeling and rhythm, sometimes due to the strength of the coffee or a particularly large burr in Tommy's undershorts.

This Car Talk set is for fans who want to waste another four perfectly good hours. Rather than a best of collection, it's four complete shows--every call, every joke, every Don't drive like my brother admonition, every puzzler, every punny mention of a fictional show staff member (chauffeur Picov Andropov, night club manager Don Kashane), and every maniacal laugh.

The four shows include the 2002 Mother's Day extravaganza with Click and Clack's long-suffering mom, and You Can't Do It Unless the Number Is Two from February 2001, the show that gave birth to a new Car Talk mantra and exposed Tommy's radical views on education (like, it should end after 7th grade).

Synopsis:

Four complete and original programs from the Car Talk archives, all featuring Click and Clack’s favorite call-in guest: NPR commentator, author, and general crank Daniel Pinkwater.

Synopsis:

The hands-down highlight of many a Car Talk episode, Daniel Pinkwater is responsible for some of the all-time greatest moments of the program’s storied history on public radio. Whether discussing man’s best friend (but worst passenger) or searching for the perfect vehicle for those who are “horizontally challenged,” Pinkwater keeps Tom and Ray in stitches, along with the show’s far-flung audience.
 
 The latest time-wasting Car Talk collection features the official designation of the Pinkwater seating standard, the strange case of the motorhead boyfriend, the presentation of the first Car Talk Peace Prize, Stump the Chumps, a puzzler from the Lying Used Car Salesman series, a stirring recitation from a BMW owner’s manual, a discussion of puking pooches, and more. It’s four perfectly good hours of laughter and conversation.
