Car Talk Classics: The Pinkwater Files
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.

What was the best Car Talk show ever? Impossible to say. But here are four all-time favorites from Tom and Ray Magliozzi, aka Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers. Martha Stewart visits the show, and Ray heartily greets her as "Margaret." A Mother's Day tribute to Tom and Ray's own beleaguered and beloved mom. Tom and Ray share John "Bugsy" Lawlor's letters home from summer camp. And Ray's worst puzzler error ever, which the staff happily throws back in his face.
